Just an update, I checked up with him today to see how things were going, and what do you know, he actually found quite a few wedding planning resources himself. He ended up taking a few spreadsheet templates from various wedding websites, and used them as a guide to make his own spreadsheet (stripping out a lot of the stuff that we won’t have or care about… we really didn’t need the 40 tabs that one of those templates had, yeesh!). He also put a space by each item where he jots notes if something needs clarification. He has a color-coding scheme to indicate cells of things he’s not sure about and needs my input, things that are due soon, things that I need to do, things that are finalized, etc. Smart man!
Over the past 3 days he’s got the reception venue narrowed down to two places, and both look great to me, so I’d say we’re in good shape so far! Thanks again for the kind words and advice everyone.

My Fiance lets me do everything & I really want his help & I dont think Id like him to do everything. Im not a control freak either but I would at least want him to run things by me first.
If you & your Fiance have the same taste though & have been agreeing with your wedding vision I wouldnt worry about it.

- Wedding: June 2016 - Akron, OH
My groom to be has a lot of opinions about the things I’ve been planning, so I always ask him and take his opinion into consideration before things are final. The other day though I asked him to put hotel information on the invites I made – he completey ignored this request and just made new invites instead. I was a little upset that he didn’t like my design, but his turned out better than mine anyway. It’s just frustrating having someone spend so much time on one item that you might not care about much. We tend to clash on wedding time frames and ideas. However, if you’re opened minded, then good luck to you! Sounds great to have your groom help out. Congrats!

My Fiance has become suprisingly involved in the planning. I like it. I’m a bit of a control freak but I’m so happy at his level of involvement that I can’t complain 🙂
