Usually it’s me acting like your SO. :  FI is the one who wants to get things done, I procrastinate.

Lists and reminder notes/emails/texts work for me, because if it’s something I don’t want to do, bugging makes me push it off longer. But… guys and girls might be different in that regard. :

My Darling Husband is the same way. I gve him three things to do and they don’t get done until the very last minute. Somehow he always pulls it off but I don’t know how. I’ve explained to him how much it really stresses me out (both by snapping at him at the time, and calmly later on, lol!) and I think I’ve finally gotten through to him. I’m also very honest with him and say “Okay, we’re having a dinner party on Saturday. I need you to clean up your stuff/mow the lawn/do whatever by Thursday night so I’m not freaking out on you Friday while I’m trying to vaccuum around your stuff” (or whatever the case may be). And I always give “deadlines” a day early just to give some buffer time and then I can say “sigh okay honey, if you get it done by tomorrow afternoon I suppose that’s okay, but you’re really stressing me out!”. It works for us and it’s improved the last-minute-itis a ton!

My Fiance is the same way. No matter how many times I tell him something needs to get done.. He is going to do it when he wants and not before. Oh well. I would just talk to him about how it bugs you and tell him that normally this wouldnt be as big of a deal but you NEED to get x,y, and z done before you can go.. or you cant. I know how stressful this must be, on top of a wedding. But things will get better, and you will be less stressed. Just remember boys will always be boys… eww I know lol OH and I found that you have to tell them things need to get done at least a few days before they really do need to be done. I think from now on that will put you at ease a little more.
