I was going to do a regular wedding invite but once he saw the boarding pass kind he was insistant that we do those.

Wow thats great. I wish I could get him involved in making those but he barely noticed the boarding pass pictures I showed him. I'm sure once the stuff is all over our room while I am making them he will take note but until then he seems content to leave it up to me.

I am in the early planning stages. My FI so far doesn't really care about the minute details. If I tell him an idea he says "okay baby" and that is about it! He likes when I keep him in the know but I can't over whelm him with too many choices! So far he wants to be in charge of the reception playlist, and I pretty good with that!

My fiance left most of it to me, but the colors and recessional song were all him! This is OUR day, not just mine, so I wanted him to be a part of the planning as much as he wanted to be. I get weddings aren't as much of a deal as they are for us women, so I don't get hurt when he doesn't really have an opinion. But I can't understand the women who say their fiance has no say....that's just wrong.

I totally agree! At first my feelings were a little hurt when my FI wasn't as excited as I was when I told him about different ideas. But now I realize that is just not a guy thing.

When I first start planning, I would be so excited telling my FI about my vision for things. He would give me this big grin and just say "babe if you're happy, then I'm happy." He would always say that the wedding was a woman thing, but would still listen to whatever I told him about or asked him about, but I was surprised when he got really excited when he saw our passport invitations. He really liked them. When they first came in, he went on and on and on about them and how nice they were. Then when his friends started calling him and giving him feedback on the invitations and website, he had this big grin on his face like "yeah, my babe hooked it up!"

 

He knows that I have a ton of stuff in the "wedding" room, and I ordered this big duffle bag to carry our clothes in (because I want to use the suitcases for all the other stuff that is somewhat fragile), but I don't really think he has any idea just how much stuff we have to take. He may blow a gasket when he really sees!

 

He was going through the camera the other day and when he saw all the pictures I had taken as I was documenting my planning, he says "wow, you really pulled all this stuff together and it's looking nice." He is in charge of the music for the ceremony and reception and has put together an amazing playlist (including the song I will walk down the aisle to).

My FI doesn't care too much about the details. I run everything by him, but mostly he's letting me do what I want. He DOES care about choosing the music, food and his clothing. He has good taste so I trust him. :)

My fiance would like to be included on decisions and kept informed. His only real request was that we get married at an adults-only resort and he not have to wear a suit, lol, so since we have both those covered he's pretty happy I think. He likes to be a part of it and help out, but he's letting me make the decisions and trusts my judgement.

Josh really isn't interested all that much in the details. He did pick the shades of blue portion of our wedding colors, and I added in the wedding colors. Wedding planning is DEFINITELY more of a girl's interest than guy's, haha.
