Not a damn thing. I’m kind of a control freak so I really need to be involved in every aspect.

ETA: Now that I think about it, he is coding us a custom photobooth app for our fauxtobooth. He won’t have complete control over it since I’ll work with him to design it but this will be his major project.

The cake, pretty much all the food, the guest list, the Out of Town coordination, the venue, marriage legalities, the officiant, and anything technology-related.

Absolutely nothing!  He didn’t want to… and I didn’t want him to.  I wanted everything MY way.  He did help though.  He did whatever I asked him to do, but all ideas/plans were mine.

He picked his and his GM’s clothing for the day (with very little input from me). That’s it.

Everything has been a joint effort, and we’ve talked about everything, except for my dress.  He printed all of the invitations and save the dates, but we stamped, sealed and mailed them together.  I think we’d both be mad if one of us made a decision without consulting the other one.

Nothing – it won’t get done unless I do it. If I gave him something to do, he’d pawn it off on his mother to do anyway, and whatever she does won’t be what I like anyway.

Nothing. I mean, other than his groomsmen gifts, nothing. He says ‘it’s your day, make it yours!’ yeah, yeah, yeah…likely story!

he was in change of the tuxes. but then he never got to it. So i ended up sizing them all and making sure they paid they’re deposit. lol. He’s way too much a procrastinator to be put in charge of anything. Especially if i want things done more than a week before the wedding lol.

Umm…nothing. I am a control freak. He’d rather just add his 2 cents here and there than take charge of a whole task.

Actually I tried putting him in charge of finding a DJ and even gave him a timeline. Well, the timeline passed and we still don’t have a DJ. Ha!

He says he’s taking care of our mini-moon, but I don’t even know if that will get done. I’m silently having a panic attack about it. I need to know how many days to take off!

He handled all of the tent/table/chair/arbor rental

catering and bar service

DJ

Coordinated parking

Photography

We talked about what I wanted at the beginning but then I left him to it. He actually finished his list well before me Laughing

Umm no, becase nothing is 100% up to me with no input from me. It’s “our” wedding and he gets a say in everything as do I.

He chose his attire and the groomsmens.

These were his tasks:

-Organise what him and his groomsman wore, he did, and I approved the choice. 

-Organise the Wine for the reception, he organised the red and I organised the white.

-Organise the music, I ended up doing that, but he did help with song choices and he did program the ipod for the ceremony so that you just needed to press play.

-Organise the esky for the cars while the photos were being taken (best mans job) I got the wedding coordinator to do it cause once boys get together drinking they become slightly useless.

 
He did however make all the throwies for the paper lanterns, and we both made all the invites, booklets, menus etc, ( I designed them, came up with the wording and graphics but he did all the cutting and glueing.

Plus he oranised the accomodation for the wedding and the entire honeymoon

give him 10/10

The groom’s cake, his tux (not the GM’s!), his wedding band, and the “getaway” car. That’s it! ETA: I guess u should add DJ to the list since we hired a friend of his, but he def doesn’t get to choose the music. 🙂
