 I wonder if a lot of what he’s doing is just him taking out his emotions on you. That sucks! Maybe pick two that you like and basically say “it’s this one or this one which do you like more? And neither is not an option.”

Talk to him and let him know that if he doesnt like your suggestions he has to come up with some suggestions of his own

That sounds so frustrating! On one hand you want to make sure he’s happy, but on the other he’s being unreasonable if he is just shooting all your suggestions down while not contributing anything. 

I would ask him to please go find a few venues he is interested in. If he does not, I would pick a few of the options you’ve figured out and ask him to pick one and that’s that.

He may be feeling uncomfortable about getting married–celebrating–after his father’s death and instead of dealing with those emotions he’s taking it out on your venue. As pp have mentioned, you need to talk with him.

The perfect venue wouldn’t mean anything if significant people in your life weren’t going to be in presence; maybe that’s why he keeps turning down your suggestions for churches and venues. Losing his dad is a significant loss and great deal of sorrow. In your fiance’s eyes, his dad is the best source of advice and example of how to be a good husband and father and he’s not going to be there to give your fiance advice at a significant point in his life.  Engaged to be married is a big transition, adjusting to life after the death of a loved one is a big transition too. Be patient with him and his family as there is no set timetable for grief. Take a break from the planning during the holidays and let him talk about his dad, reflect on his life, be sure to tell him nice memories you had of his dad if you’ve met him.  New Year’s is in a little over a week, so can you put off planning for a week or so?

I say you give him a list of 5 or 6 places and tell him he has to pick one or you are going to do it yourself. You need to let him know that shit gets booked fast. September and October are starting to become popular wedding months. My venue is basically booked every weekend until Oct. 2012. Don’t give him a chance to shut the venue down.

Sorry to hear that.  Trust me, it will all come together in the end.  For now, keep busy working on the things you can control – like asking at the NY bees for ideas on venues.  Give him a week or so without discussing the topic, then go back to him with new ideas.

Maybe give him a choice of 3 venues and say “If you don’t like any of these, then you’re going to have to come up with something on your own because nothing I give you is satisfactory.” 

Maybe putting it in his lap is the only way you can get it done?

As a JoP wedding gal myself, it’s not a bad decision!
