I am pretty much planning everything, Fiance is putting in his two sense but I’m the one doing all the research, etc…

I gave him one task to plan and that is the Honeymoon, he can plan it all by himself. I just told him I want to go somewhere where there’s a beach, hot sun and I’ll be happy πŸ™‚ I’ll let you know how he does once I get there hehe

Hubs did all kinds of stuff, including the florist πŸ™‚ It all went pretty well.

My husband helped out with a ton of things for the wedding. I think we split things pretty equally in terms of planning, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. He was much better at calling up vendors/rentals and taking care of all of those things, while I headed up the charge on all of our DIY projects. It was perfect for us!

I put him in charge of the music and dealing with the DJ and the string trio.

He’s also building our card box and the box for the ring warming.

And picking groomsmen attire and gifts.

And I also told him he’s in charge of the honeymoon. πŸ™‚  I don’t care where we go, for how long, or anything else.  He’s making my dreams come true with tickets to see our favorite band in Florence, Italy – but other than that, I have no clue what else we’re doing or where it’ll be.  Thank god.  If I had to add planning this to my list I’d lose my effing mind.

The only thing he really did solo was coordinate the rehearsal dinner (sort of–his parents paid for it and helped a ton, but he ordered the food!). Other than my dress and the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, Darling Husband pretty much helped me with everything too, though.

I put Darling Husband in charge of the actual ceremony, since he is a pastor. πŸ™‚  I also asked him to order the unity sand kit (though, of course, I had a lot of input on color and style), take care of obtaining the marriage license, and arrange for the out-of-town-guests’ hotel accommodations. I also had him take the lead on planning the rehearsal dinner (but, of course, I had a lot of input on venue and menu!) πŸ™‚

The only thing I put my Fiance in charge of is to tell his brothers and cousin about the bridal party stuff and he told me he will get to it. My Fiance is a real slacker and would not trust him with anything. I love him to death but know he is not good at keeping up with any wedding stuff.

My Fiance found our ceremony venue and I have found our reception venue and photographer but he has been with me at every meeting I had with vendors. My Fiance is very much involved with the planning because he wants me not to over stress about the wedding planning. Right now, he’s looking up potential DJs and he already has some caterers in mind that he wants to check out.

My Fiance is in charge of dealing with the groomsman and certain vendors, laying out the invites (he’s much more computer saavy than I am and we’re DIYing them), and helping with other little tasks.

Sometimes I have to remind him three or four times to do things but he does get them done eventually πŸ˜‰

I probably won’t be putting Fiance in charge of much besides sending him to get measured for his tux. I hate to say it, but he just doesn’t get everything that goes into a wedding and will probably be way too laid back about the wrong things (case in point: we’ve been engaged for 4 months and he hasn’t once looked up or researched anything on his own, not even out of curiosity). Not to mention that right around the 3-6 month mark when I’ll be running around like crazy to make sure everything is getting finalized, it will be playoff football time (yes, Fiance is a total football nerd).

With all of that being said, I am going to ask his input on most everything and he will be coming with me to make decisions on things like the food, cake, etc.

I put my Fiance in charge of the DJ too… I had a list of names for him to call. He talked to one, they seamed cool, but I ended up having to call them the next day.  Fail.
