What kind of ideas has he come up with? Now I’m curious!!! Why don’t you give him options… “I’ve been thinking about this OR that… what do you think?”

I think that you should pick two options of something that you like and then present them to him without telling him that you like both and whichever one he chooses use that one. You liked both of them from the beginning so it shouldnt be much of an adjustment.

I hope this helps!

Honey, my manly-mechanic-hunter-outdoorsman Fiance wants a wedding wrapped in tulle and silk flowers. and I CANNOT convince him that is will look outdated and ridiculous.He thinks my pompoms, pocketfolds, and colored shoes are freakish :).

Yesterday his mom was showing us an example of a cupcake stand she made from a plate and a wine glass (where you glue them together?). I was like “yeah sure looks good.” He spent ten minutes testing the balance of it and holding it up to fabric to see how many cupcakes we can put on it and if it will match the tablecloths. Unreal!

I think its great hes trying to be involved.  Maybe just say oh great when he comes up with something and then show him what you thought.  Maybe you can humor him by going to see one or two reception venues so maybe he will see that it wont work.

My husband did that during the planning too. I think he did this just so that he could feel like he was playing an active roll, but deep down he didn’t really care 🙂

I’m in the exact same situation – I could have never imagined that he would be so involved in the details! I try to use his less out-there ideas as often as I can, or suggest modifications that would make them more acceptable. I don’t have as much autonomy in the decisions as brides whose fiances don’t care much/at all, but I think it’s his wedding as much as mine, no matter who’s been dreaming about it longer 🙂

If he’s really excited about something that won’t work though, I usually just tell him why it won’t and include links from wedding websites that explain my point

My fiance is super involved, and I’ve learned how to compromise.  The stuff I thought really mattered doesn’t matter if my fiance feels left out and shuttled to the side.  Just think about what  huge help your fiance’s going to be!

These are the things he’s cared about so far whenever we’ve actually talked wedding stuff: the officient, the homily, the font on all the paper products (?!?!?!) and whether or not the food will be “Mr. KM friendly” (he’s a pescatarian and not by choice).

Lol my fiance does this sometimes too! He thought we could just grab a $10 bag of silk petals for our 60 FOOT aisle!!
