i definitely wouldn’t like this.  i’m way too much of a control freak to let this fly.  plus, he proposed the same day as they got married.  she didn’t get to go through all the fun things that go with the engagement period- engagement parties, bachelorette, showers- not to mention sharing all the planning deets with your girlfriends and mother.

i think… if my Fiance had a bigger budget than we have, he would know exactly how to make my dream wedding.

but if it was just the budget we have now, he wouldn’t be able to make it work. he doesn’t know how to shop around or what to shop around for to find good deals.

I would hate this!! I mean great thought on his part I Guess, But I hate surprises. I would have been pissed that I didnt get to be a part of planning one of the biggest days of my life, and I think I would have passed out when I realized we were really getting married right then. Not getting to pick out my dress anything. OMG I would be livid, but at the same time happy that I was marrying my man.. idk thats a lot of mixed emotions right there.

i wonder if he secretly did it because he thought she might become a bridezilla if he let her plan herself….lol

oh and if he picked my bridesmaids? OH HELL NO. 

1) asking them was very important to our friendships and a big moment

2) what if he asked the wrong girls!?  or left one out?

I think I would have loved it!  I was never one of those people who planned their wedding since they were 5.  Honestly, the meaning behind the ceremony is much more important to me than all the decor and I think I would be happy not having to make all of those decisions!  I think it was very sweet.

it seems like in the video she didn’t have time to absorb anything.

@tinylittlebird: Exactly. Like I would have done it yes, but there would be a part of me that would feel like I missed out on the planning details and the special moments with your mom like picking out your dress etc.

I would’ve been upset.  First of all, I love Darling Husband, but if he had planned the wedding…eek.

Second, I would’ve wanted to plan it!  That’s half the fun!  (supposedly)

Wow I was crying through this whole thing and then read how many people would hate it!! I’m so easy going, I would LOVE if Fiance had done this for me.  He knows me so well and often has better ideas than me (don’t tell him I said that lol) so anything he did would be amazing.  That’s so cool!! What an awesome guy 🙂
