…let your groom plan your whole wedding?
I am watching Don’t tell the Bride – a tv show where grooms are given £12,000 and 4 weeks to plan the whole wedding – they can’t see, speak to or message the bride in any way so she has no say (but they get the wedding paid for them by the show)

- Wedding: September 2011 - Bent Creek Winery (Livermore, California); Reception: Family Residence (San Ramon, California)
No. But I also wouldn’t want to plan it all by myself. I enjoyed planning everything together with him! It was such a unique and wonderful experience, and I’m glad we went through it together.

I voted yes becuase I honestly trust him to make better decisions than myself and to stay true to the real meaning of having a wedding instead of trying to turn it into a materialistic event.

Hells no hahaha he would probably end up with some polkadots suits lol I’m enjoying planning with him right now. He gives me his input, his ideas and we incorporate them.

Hell to the no. I’ve seen that show and it gives me so much anxiety!! I would like to SEE what he would plan with all of his own ideas, but I’d never want it to be his decision, hahaha.

lol. My Fiance has said that if he had to plan the wedding the reception would be at Pondarosa… SO an overwhelming NO!

I would. I applied to be on that show, apparently an American version is supposed to be filming, but I wasn’t accepted.

No WAY!!!! I am having so much fun planning this, and I will never get to do it again! I will not give up that chance.

It isn’t that I don’t trust him to make it beautiful because he already knows most of what we/I want, but it’d be too sad for me not to be an integral part of the planning process.

@parasol: I saw that you had done a DIY invitation and then read all the posts regarding your invite fiasco. It sounds like Mr. Parasol really was a champ, at least in that regard!

I said yes – parts of this have been fun, but really, I just want to have the party! So if all I had to do was show up in a pretty dress and get married? Yes, please! Plus I trust my man 100% to make good decisions about the wedding – his involvment has been invaluable as it is, so if he took it on his own, that’d have been fantastic.
I was on the phone with him when I first saw this question and read it to him, and when I told him I’d let him plan the whole thing he said, ‘Is that cause you’re tired of planning, or because you trust me that much?’ A fair mixture of both, I think. 🙂

Not unless I wanted a Led Zeppelin themed wedding that involved husband and wife tapping the keg instead of cutting the cake.
In all seriousness, a wedding was something I always wanted to plan and had a blast doing. I could never hand off that experience to someone else.

@beachchicbride: But what if your Fiance actually wants a huge wedding with all the trimmings? Is that what you don’t want, and you’d be disappointed? Just saying, it might happen that way. 😛
For the record, no, I could never do that, because knowing my luck I’ll be with a guy I think I can trust to make the wedding close to how I’d want it and instead chooses to go entirely his own way, and I’d hate the whole thing.
