I wish I understood it as well, but as Fiance and I always say, we can’t depend on anyone but ourselves.  It’s sad yet so true.

Yeah we definitely aren’t depending on anyone…but giving people pieces of projects that they seem interested in.  Everything will be ready to go even if they decide they’re not really interested in it anymore.

We also haven’t asked for any help.  Mostly we get demands for projects so it’s sort of hard coming up with ways to share tasks without giving over complete dependence.

My aunt wanted tons of projects and was all huffy about our Target registry.  She thought we should register at Macys.  So we said she could go over our registry and come up with some ideas to add…well she went nuts and basically added and cut everything and told us other stores to buy things at…oh well! Haha!!

People don’t typically want to bail you out if an annoying situation.  They want to be included in the fun parts and the decision-making.

So true. No one wants to help with the dirty work of a wedding or anything too “hard”. But thats usually what you need the most help with. :/

I have found that out more and more often as I am planning this wedding. They want to be involved or give input, but I end up eventuaLly doing all the work! UGH!
