Hey Bees! Just wanted to see where everyone stands with their wedding and their future husband’s participation in the planning. My wedding is next weekend (YAY!) and up to this point I have done 98% of the planning along with my mom and best friend. Future hubby has maybe picked out a couple things and that’s it. Is this normal or is it just me?

My Darling Husband helped very little with the plans. BUT, he did listen to me while I explained everything to him and was there whenever I needed to hear “chill out!” lol
Although, he did pick our first song and it was beautiful!

My husband’s an art director so he took charge of our wedding planning. It was held at his family farm so we needed to rent everything and bring it on site. He did the most amazing job. People said it looked like a movie set 🙂
I think it’s still the bride who gets most involved in the planning but men are increasing their participation. Would you prefer to see your fiance get more involved?

I’d say maybe 10% of the decisions could be attributed to Darling Husband. We talked out a lot of the other ones, but I was the one researching, price-gathering, etc.

Mine tried when I asked him, but he just wasn’t interested in the details like I was!

Mine helped out on some things but was mostly hands off. He helped whenever I wanted him to though. None of your choices on the poll fit my situation because he didn’t do much but he did the right amount for us. I’d say something like “less than me, but as much as I asked him to.”

I can’t vote in your poll because the option isn’t there. My fiance has given opinions, and has been helpful, but has not done as much as I have.

I find guys are so passive when it comes to planning.i usually ask my fiance for advice when i need it but for the most part he’s pretty laid back and lets me do most of it. he says anything i want will be great as long as he marrys me he’s happy 🙂

@peachacid, @mrsSonthebeach: Ditto. My guy hasn’t done as much as I have, but he’s exactly as helpful as I want him to be, so I guess that puts me between options.

I’m sorry your guy hasn’t been too helpful! We’ve still got 7 months left and my Fiance has been wonderful. The way it’s been going is that I do a ton of research (on vendors etc) and then we talk about them, and make a decision together. He’s not the best with coming up with ideas, but he does try, and he is very opinioned and helpful when the time is right. Just last night he helped me with the mock centerpieces 🙂

i think it just depends, my Fiance has been supportive but not really helped much due to our work schedules, i work all mornings, the latest i ever get out of work is 3pm but on average i work 3am to 12pm, he however has been working all closing shifts, mostly like 2pm to 11pm so occasionally we will get a day off together and he can help but other than that it’s been the same for me, i have done pretty much everything myself or with some help from his mom my mom and my sister and a couple of my friends who are in the wedding party have helped a little bit. i do wish he could have been more involved though because the days we have been off and able to have him help have been so much more fun planning with him and i don’t feel like i’m just going to be marrying myself lol
