    My FI has been so helpful with the wedding.  He’s pretty much helped me with most of everything.  He says its his wedding too.  lol

    But there is one thing I had him working on was finding a DJ.  Which is he did last week 🙂  We are doing the playlist together though.  Well its mostly me and he just agrees or disagrees lol

    None.  I did it all, single handed.  He said it was a very wonderful day and knew I’d do a great job!

    I’ve been letting my FH make different decisions.  I’ll narrow stuff down (invitation designs, colors, etc.) and he gets to make the final call.

    He’s really involved with everything, so far the only thing that I’ve 100% handed over to him though has been our music. He’s a DJ/Music Producer so I’m positive he’ll find something better than I could!

    I always ask his opinion, but I wouldn’t give him a job to do by himself.

    FI is in charge of tux rentals, groomsmen gifts, alcohol, and the budget. He’s much better at numbers than I am.

    In additon to the groomsmen he is responsible for the rehearsal dinner (which he’s planning with his step-mom), the honeymoon, and we will work together on the music.

    He’s handled a lot so far:

    -cake

    -transportation

    -guys outfits

    -honeymoon

    -hotel block

    But he still runs decisions by me before committing. And I do the same with everything else.

    @anthrogirl:  i dont give him specific jobs, we do everything together. but he literally helps with everything and it makes it so much easier! he says since its our wedding we should both do the work. he looks things up online, he helped pick bridesmaid dresses, he comes shopping for decor and stuff, he goes to appointments with me, oh and he pays when i tell him i need money for something! haha

    My husband helped me with some DIY projects, but the tuxes (making sure their price was right and communicating with his guys) and the wedding slideshow were completely his jobs.  Funny, b/c the tux prices/agreement were all messed up (although not really HIS fault) and he finished the wedding slideshow the night before the wedding. 

    However, the slideshow turned out AWESOME; almost all of my BM’s were crying b/c they thought it was so sweet (we added video clips which were a huge hit with our crowd).

    The only duty he had was himself and his groomsmen. He was also in charge of the booze. I did not really care or want to worry about any of that, so I left that on him.

     I know that he thought all of that wedding planning stuff was “stupid” and we didn’t need all of it, so I rather not hear it and brought my girls with me instead. It gave me time to hang out with them and I really enjoyed it.

    This continued after we got married too, I refuse to take him shopping with me! lol

    I voted for “etc.”  We’re in the very early stages of planning, but so far we’ve been trying to make all decisions together.  I will be choosing my dress and accessories on my own, but everything else is pretty 50/50.

    This is not to say that we don’t have the occasional disagreement, but it’s really important to both of us that it’s our day … I don’t want it all to be about me.

    He’s been helping with basically everything but my outfit.  I ask him for input on EVERYTHING, because he has definite opinions, and it isn’t just my day.  Plus if I have to slog through pages and pages of research, he can at least help make a decision!
