- Wedding: May 2010
*Sorry this is so long!*
I’m planning the whole wedding. Every little detail. It’s a garden/tent wedding, so there are a lot of details. He mailed in the DJ’s contract. That’s IT. And only after I researched DJ’s and selected someone within our price range, spoke to them on the phone and requested that they mail me a contract. He signed it and put a stamp on that bad boy. I asked him to block off some hotels (again, I’d already done the research and just needed him to do the paperwork) and he did half of it. I figured that out when the hotel clerk emailed to see if I still wanted the block. Oh – did I mention that I’m planning from across the country while trying to write a dissertation?
So, months ago, I asked if he could plan the honeymoon. We talked about some different options, we talked a little about money, and then I let it go and trusted that he would get it done. Now, less than 3 months before our wedding, he has NOTHING BOOKED. I’ve sent him links, deals, thoughts, etc, and heard nothing from him about it. So two weeks ago I finally found 2 places that I loved that were in our price range (low) and fit what we wanted to do (lounge on a beach). I sent them both to him, and asked him to take a look, decide, and act on it. Did he? No, of course not!!! In the meantime I kept looking at them, and decided that I really liked one of the options, and told him that, and he still did nothing. So I finally called today to see if we could book a room, and guess what? They’re booked solid. I shouldn’t be surprised, but I. am. pissed.
So I know it’s not his fault that they’re booked, but I can’t help but think that if he had acted months ago, we would have been able to do something along those lines. Now, he’s done nothing, and it’s just the last straw! I’m so mad! The worst part is that he’s got a big presentation tomorrow, so I really shouldn’t go home tonight and bring this up, b/c I know it will be a big fight and I really want him to do well. Argh.
So hive, what should I do? I actually like most of the planning – it’s a fun, creative outlet most of the time. And I don’t really want an all-out war over this. I’m just really frustrated right now, and don’t know how to approach the subject without going psycho on him.
