I got engaged in March, and have just started dabbling in the planning process. My fiancé and I are almost 100% polar opposites when it comes to EVERYTHING - definitely an opposites attract situation. I'm type A, he's type B. I'm the primary earner, he goes along with whatever job is in front of him and hopes for the best. I'm very sentimental and emotionally driven, he is unemotional. Most of the time it works and we each do our separate things together, but we have had a couple 30,000 feet wedding conversations which have all ended in tears because we don't agree on ANYTHING for the day, from big to small decisions! For example, he would much rather put the wedding money towards a new patio and have the reception in our own backyard, and I have envsioned a venue reception with all the bells and whistles. Or, I want to splurge on a photographer and a nice wedding album, and he said its pointless because he wouldn't look at the photos more than once. Long story short - did any of you plan a wedding with a polar opposite? How did you ever manage to come to a compromise with such different viewpoints and expectations for the event to feel authentic to both of your personalities?
