Goodness there are some very harsh responses on here… I think some people really need to think before they type and remember people have feelings. Weddings are exciting times, amazing times but they are also very difficult and emotional… Please think about this before you give your strong opinions so freely and without thought of the person on the other end!

tchelsea : I always assume people are gonna be critical because it’s the internet so meh. That aside, thank you for being the type of kind and compassionate person that concerns themselves with other people’s feelings. You’re an amazing person!

With regards to getting your fiance more excited about wedding planning:
First of all, there’s a good chance that he will get excited once you get into it. At the outset of planning, my fiance and I were at least on the same page in that we both wanted a big party with friends and family. He had a couple strong opinions (open bar, DJ instead of band) but claimed that he wouldn’t really care about most of the details like colors, centerpieces, cake flavors, and was just going to leave most of those decisions up to me. But as it turns out, once we started looking into options for these things, he’s actually ended up having opinions on everything and has been heavilty involved in making decisions for everything. Now he’s actually excited about all the smaller details! It just took some time for him to “get into” the process.
But even if your fiance doesn’t get excited about these things, that’s okay too. We know several couples whose weddings we have attended recently where the grooms played a minor role in wedding planning, because they didn’t have strong opinions on most aspects of the wedding and just wanted their brides to do what makes them happy. At the end of the day, they were happy that their wives were happy and they were just happy to be married to the person they love. If your fiance is content to let you do more of the planning and just wants to be married at the end of the day, then I don’t see a problem with that.
