@tllang:  Normally people have the opposite problem – family members trying to HIJACK planning.  Consider yourself lucky.

When it comes to making decisions, commit and that’s it.  Don’t lose focus – the most important thing is the marriage, not the party.

Everything comes together so don’t sweat it.

Hang in there- it sounds like you are having a rough time of it.  I want opinions on mine too and got a lot of “whatever you want”.  What I want was a special day that I could share with family and friends so their opinion really did matter.  I got some better results talking to some of the family who hold the family gatherings regularly. Instead of asking if they though I should serve ___ or use ____ decoration, I would ask what they thought the family favorites were when they entertain.  That helped me get a better grip on what would go over well. 

If all else fails, give yourself a few days off from wedding planning. Find something super fun you love to do, enjoy that activity and let your brain recharge.  I always have an easier time making choices after a day or two of doing something I love.

@tllang:  I know how you feel. My Fiance does this to me all the time. I’ll ask his opinion and he says something like “I trust your judgement”. Thanks thats great, but I would love an opinon!

It could be worse, you could have others FORCING you to do things THEIR way.

Sometimes it is good to take a step back and have some time out when planning- it might be time for you to do this. 🙂

Hugs, it’s better than everyone having their own opinion that disagrees with yours. I chose to do a Destination Wedding to get AWAY from everyone’s opinions…lol

People might be hesitant because they don’t want you to choose something that you really don’t want.  And sometimes it’s better that way.  If I listened to what people told me, my wedding would have been about $10k over my budget.

@Nic01:  LOL that sounds a bit ominous.  True, but ominous.

I get this too.  For me I know why.  I’m not very girly and most of my female friends are, so they naturally tell me to do what I want.  Of course, like you, if I ask for an opinion… I’d really like one, even if it’s not what I end up doing.  Being not so girly, having some input even if it’s something that makes me think “eek, ok… NOT that” is helpful. 🙂

Try starting off by telling them “Hey, I’d really like your opinion on…”.  When they say “do what you want”, say “Oh, I will, but you’re good with this kind of thing and I’d really like to know what you think” or some such.  That’s been working well for me.

Gosh. I know how you feel. I always appreciate the real opinions I get. 

Im feeling so lost lately too. Wedding planning can be stressful. Especially when people don’t want to help. don’t know if I can be much help but to say that I know how you feel. and your not alone in that. Good luck
