    This one's false for me. I love having control, haha. FH, mom, and FMIL do help, though!

    False!! I love that its just me and FH planning and paying for it all. We dont have to answer to ANYONE about out decisions for our day. He helps with every single detail of our wedding.

    Lol, False. I did almost all the planning. My husband was wonderful with tie breaker votes after I did all the research (how I prefer it). People kept asking me how they could help (maybe just my husband and my mom, but still they were offering!) so I FINALLY caved and let my mom handle ONE thing...it’s the only thing that went terribly wrong on the wedding day 🤣🤣. So, I totally regret delegating. It wasn’t strictly her fault and she did step up with the solution , but I was so obsessive about details that I think it probably could have gone smoother. Still, I’m suppose I’m happy that I didn’t really have to deal with it along the way!

    False. I am a control freak/planner so I'd rather it be me then allow a wedding planner or whomever to take over so things!

    False, I can barely make a decision by myself so it has been a lot less stress without help! WHen I do have questions I reach to friends that have been married and that helps a ton!

    Nope. My husband helped me every step of the way. If I needed opinions, when he didn't have one, I asked my friends.

    Kinda true. I love having control so don't mind planning myself but I wish I could get some help on a couple of things.

    False. It was all about what we wanted. It was so much easier that way!

    False, it's just my fiance, mom and sister... I get annoyed very easily so I don't need a ton of opinions. I also can be very indecisive so my mom and sister know me enough to help guide my decisions. This is just how I like it

    True! FH is great most of the time but I really could have used some more help in a few areas. Really I just wish we had had more help paying for it lol

    Yes and no. I am very particular. I know if I do everything myself it will go as I would like it to lol... if I invite others in, I know I will pick at things because I have OCD (serious). I had friends help paint stuff for my wedding and every tiny spec of paint that is out of place made me tick lol. I like the help but I also like to fly solo.

    In the beginning I had wished for more help from FH. But then we had a talk about if he's going to be giving all of this input and saying yes or no to things so easily then he can help with the leg work part of things too. And since then he's really stepping up and helping. It's now 50/50.
