Mine is the same way. Men do not like to make decisions when it comes to girly stuff. They usually just shake their heads and pretend to care what your talking about. Best bet is to plan it and then go over everything at the end with him before to make sure he is ok with it. Chances are he won’t care. He will just be glad to get it over with so he doesn’t have to hear about it again lol.

When we first started planning, I showed him a bunch of different pictures of various ideas. There was this one he seemed to like, but wasn’t gung-ho about it. Later, I mentioned in passing that that particular theme was the plan and he’s like “Really? Oh, awesome! I liked that one a lot.” He also wants to do a centerpiece mock up himself, but thats as far as he seems to care. We happen to have very similar tastes and I have chosen very neutral colors, so thats right up his alley. He did beg me not to do anything orange after seeing pics of an all orange wedding, down to the groomsmen’s vests. 😉

Music, food, etc is all on me, it seems.

Oh, at first he wasn’t that into it. Now, he is involved in pretty much everything, he has a say in everything. It’s after all our wedding and both our wants and needs should be voiced. It has gone fine so far! 😀

He’s really not so helpful when it comes to helpfulness in deciding, but he’s really good about giving feedback on my ideas. He just claims that I’m much better with that kind of stuff. He is willing to do things if I ask him to, ie cut out fabrics/ribbons/helping to organize, etc.

He hasn’t really cared too much (or he just happened to agree with my suggestions anyway making it really easy!).  He did want free reign over groomsmen attire which I was happy to let him take care of (and lucky me I LOVE his choices!).  Actually, come to think of it, he picked the wedding colors–right when we got engaged he mentioned using 2 blues and a yellow, which I loved and agreed to immediately since I probably would have picked those myself if he hadn’t said it first.  There was also one thing about flowers he wasn’t entirely sold on but we compromised on that (I got my way with the the design of the birch poles for our chuppah, but he got his way on picking a ketubah design I was lukewarm on).

Totally normal. My Fiance is the same, and I think he wouldnt have it any other way!

As long as you get his approuval when you make big decisions, I don’t think he NEEDS to be there choosing everything with you!
