Let your partner or your parents plan the wedding?

If you had to hand over complete wedding planning control to either your fiancé(e) or your parents, who would you choose??

Would you rather let your partner or your parents plan the wedding?


Next Question: Spend a day with your mother-in-law or spend a day with your father-in-law?

Back to the Beginning: Would You Rather?

    My partner. It's her wedding too and I know she would take our personal style and preferences into consideration more.

    Smiley laugh I would say partner, but I don't see him ever getting anything done, so my mom would definitely have to help!

    I guess my partner. But I also know that he would ask his mother for help!! Haha, so both I guess.

    I would have to give it to FH, but he would probably enlist his mother's help, so it would be ok.

    Since my parents have passed away, it would be my aunt in this case. I would definitely pick her over FH because he is very hands off with planning.

    Definitely my partner! We have such similar taste and preferences and a lot of what I’m planning was his idea too! I can’t imagine letting my parents do it, especially with the style of their wedding 😳

    My parent as in my Bonus mom. I couldn’t trust my dad or my partner to put in the hours on Pinterest that she would lol. Besides deadlines are crucial and she is a hound for those. She also planned my sisters so I trust her

    I always love and admire my fiance's taste, so I will definitely with my eye's close would've let my fiance plan the entire wedding. In the other side is his wedding also. 🤵🏻🥰👰🏼 #bridetobe

    Partner. He may stress me out by waiting until the absolute last second to plan anything, but he always manages to pull it off beautifully. If it were left to my mom, she would have the traditional church wedding with cake and punch reception that is very much not my style.

    My FH is the only person I would trust to fully plan a wedding. You ever see the show "Dont Tell The Bride"? I think he would rock it!

    I would rather hand over complete control to my parents. My fiance is very easy going and goes with the flow. My parents know how over the top my visions are and could fully execute all of the extra bells and whistles.

    I wish I could pick neither! Both seem to just go along with what I say. If I ask a question they always state "its up to you". I guess I'll pick my partner cause every now and then he has some really good input about our big day.

    My parents definitely because his parents are very OCD about everything being perfect and my parents are way more laid back so less stressful for all of us.

    My partner. It would be a disaster either way lol, but at least he knows what I want and has very similar ideas and tastes. My parents are very uninvolved with my wedding, so it would be a little sad having a wedding they planned.

    I'd have to give this one to my parents! I love my FH but he isn't really the greatest and planning anything.

    I’d hand over the reigns to my FH. He pretty much knows what I want, and I know he would consult with me about anything he had questions on. My mother on the other hand would go way overboard and create the huge wedding of HER dreams lol
