Apud85:  Can you have a discussion with your FI and come to some agreement about a deadline to book a venue? If he doesn’t do any research and come up with an alternative by that date, you are free to go ahead and book the venue of your choice.

It’s a stereotype, but sometimes men are so clueless at wedding planning.  I would give your FI a deadline to find another suitable location, or else you are going to book the one you like.  Most cases, especially when it comes to family, people give you advice because they care about you and they want your wedding to be nice.  It’s well meant.  But in the end, sane family members will accept your decisions with a smile.  If you have nice family/in-laws, all will be well!

I had the worst time picking a day-after Sunday brunch spot, with everybody giving me suggestions and criticizing my picks.  In the end, I just ignored everyone and chose something and nobody complained.

Apud85:   Find out if the venue you want is still available.  If so, give your FI a FIRM deadline to find a place he prefers.  If he doesn’t find a place you both prefer, book the venue you want.  

As far as planning, is a wedding planner in the budget?  We’re having a small wedding (~50 guests) and hiring a planner/DOC was the best decision for my sanity.  LOL
