Generally I’ve been finding/contacting everyone, but Fiance goes with me to all meetings and stuff. He’s always right there with me when I’m researching and calling everyone and he is really involved in the whole process!

I find the vendor, I contact the vendor!  Fiance prefers that I handle the details haha.

Oh, dear….my Fiance is wonderful, but I have done all of it.  I find, I call, I meet, I follow up, I keep track, etc. etc.  I don’t have help from Fiance because a) he’s not interested and b) he’s in an MD/PhD dual degree program and is really very busy.  I don’t have help from parents because they live a 5 hour plane ride away.  I don’t have help from bridal party because they all live at least a 10 hour drive away.  So, it’s just me.  However, once it’s all over, I anticipate an enormous sense of accomplishment, so it’s all good.  🙂

I find all. I contact all. I do it all. Darling Husband says “ok!”

Just made it easy since he was deployed and being a man, didn’t care as much about details as I did. I liked having free reign =]

I do everything.  He’ll come along to see some of the vendors he’s more interested in (cake tasting LOL).  I don’t mind this setup, I get to do things my way.

I’m doing most of the idea gathering, but Fiance went with me to a bridal show and we are mostly meeting with vendors we met there. I’m excited though because I made an appointment with a florist and Fiance said he would come with me. This is even more exciting since we are just getting bouquets for me and the maids, so this doesn’t even affect him directly.

I’m a bit of a perfectionist, so I’m a little nervous about letting Fiance help with the DIY stuff, but it may be too much for me to do myself.

i do the research, i narrow it down to a few, he helps me figure out the best, he contacts, we both meet. for diy stuff, he helps if it involves computers/photoshop, but i do the rest of the crafting. he’s been awesome!

We’re the same way! I do the research and he makes the calls! It’s a good system and we both feel like we’re contributing.

Yup I find the people- he makes the calls, I schedule the appointments- he comes and shares all of his ideas. He has generally stronger opinions than me on most of the stuff so he got the final say on food and flowers, I get music. :o)

I do everything.  FI always come with to meet and I follow-up and coordinate contract signing and deposit making.
