For some reason my finace is extremely opinionated about the center pieces to the point of pissing me off. We are tryng to agree but it’s not happening and he doesn’t understand when you are on a budget you cannot have any elaborate centerpeices. When I tell him to deal with the florist then he refuse. This is why I wanted a city hall wedding….to avoid all this annoying stuff! UGH!!!

My fiance is always quick to remind me of costs and our budget when I bring up something new I want at the wedding. I get frustrated when he just says we can’t afford it and acts like the conversation is done, no negotiating. It comes off more as he’s just shooting my idea down and using cost as a scape goat.
Try not to lose your temper with him. When most guys see how expensive some of the more elaborate wedding items cost, they will change his tune and follow reason.
I recommend you humor him this time. Get the florist to quote you on the elaborate center pieces and then something that would fall more within your budget. Then you can say, “ok, here’s what it comes out to.. in order to make it happen we would have to give up (insert something here)”. It’s been easier to give up on things I wanted when I look at it from the perspective of “its this or that”

kitty_cupcake: I hear you OP!!! Wedding planning can be super frustrating. Especially when there are lots of opinions flying around. Hence why my FI and I are eloping. Just take everything with a grain of salt and try not to let your temper control your emotions. Remember to have planning! Best of Luck 🙂

kitty_cupcake: I get you girl! While my fiancé chose the I just wanna show up approach to our small wedding, when I do consult him he gives no effort or opinion what’s so ever and it’s a little annoying. Lol on the plus side I get to have what I want and he pays for half! 🙂 there will always be a plus side 😉
