    I’ve planned 97% of my wedding, Kingy is busy with work so he gives me feedback and has had a few ideas but thats about it. My maid of honor has given me some feedback and come with me to a few things, as has my mom but I’ve shouldered all except maybe one small decision in the whole thing.

    me and FI are planning it. my step-mom and other family members are all going to help with food prep, etc. but i am DIYing just about every detail. FI has been soooo helpful though! He sits with me and assembles things and offers his help all the time. he is actually doing the lighting for the reception too. we don’t live near any family or friends, so it’s just us!

    Good question, makes me think! 75% me, 10% FI. He gladly takes his ‘honey-do’ list and gets things checked off within a day or two, which I totally appreciate. My mom and his mom make up another 10% and then I’m getting random help here and there from my girls and other friends.

    I did most of the planning, along with my sister who is also the MOH. I made her do most of the calling and research since she has more time during the day than I do. FI had some sort of weird obsession with the paper (invites and napkins) so he took care of that and the favors. On everything else he took a “whatever you want” stance.

    I’m doing 90% of our planning, getting the groom’s input on most things, and some input from the moms.

    My groom is very hands on and has helped out with most of the decisions except for bridal stuff like my dress and accessories. My mom has also been a huge help.

    The groom wasn’t involved at all–because we didn’t have a groom (same-sex wedding).  However, it was entirely planned by the two brides, working together.

    Last night I tried to tell FI that he should plan it all–I’m too indecisive. He’s adamant that we plan together, however.

    Pretty much just me! Which kinda suits us all! My mum has helped researching vendors etc and my FI has had a say on one or two things he knows he wanted (like a photobooth and the favours for the men) but on the whole it’s my baby, and really that’s how I like it lol

    Bride, groom, and a planner.  Parents are all 3-7 hours away…which is sometimes a very good thing!

    90% me and 10% fiance. My mom isn’t really into weddings and really can’t contribute. She just lets it roll. My sister who is my MOH is the same way.
