my FH was like this at first too.  i told him i would only take with him about wedding stuff one day a week, that we neither of us become too weighted down with it.  some things i can handle on my own, and when i need his opinion, he prefers me to bring him 2-4 options and he picks, thats it.  but i also gave him a typical checklist timeline, in our timeframe so he would see the urgency and items that are important.  but i also dont bomb him with centerpiece ideas a year out etc.  so its a game for a bit.

It sounds to me like he is worried about the costs that are accumulating. Maybe he said yes to some of these things, such a videographer, before realizing how very expensive they are and is now experiencing sticker shock.

We dicussed the bigger things, but I’ve done more of the planning. SO has had opinions about smaller things that didn’t matter much to me at all, [cake topper, ties for him & his guys, late night snack, ect]. Anytime he showed interest in a detail, I was sure to try my best to fit it into the wedding.
