    I'm kind of torn, I feel like I have everything under control, but my FH has no clue how to plan, and just agrees with what I say, so I wish he had more opinions, but all he wants is to marry me, and wants me to have the wedding I want. It's not bad, just wish he gave me some opinions.

    I understand exactly what you mean! If you offer him specific options, like pick between choices A, B, or C, will he voice his opinion?

    Sometimes he will! Most of the time, he says to pick what I like the most. I like to catch him off guard, because he will react with what he really likes. He doesn't like making decisions, so this whole process has him so anxious, and so he likes that I've taken charge.

    Is there anything that he will make a firm decision about? I know my boyfriend will be all over the food decisions!

    I did my own save the dates and invitation suites and all the misc signs - seating chart, welcome, sign in station, menus, and program fans , also I am doing my own photobooth and polaroid 'sign in' station, maybe our ketubah, and potentially the chuppah.

    He wants a say for the food, bar, and music. He's very adamant about making music decisions, which is great!

    True and False. I like to have control of the wedding and what will happen; but I wish my fiances was a little more involved in the planning since he definitely has opinions about it.

    I like having overall control of planning but it would be nice to be able to delegate more items or that others were more involved in doing the legwork (making calls, asking questions, e.t.c.). At least my fiance and MIL go with me to most appointments. My FIL and one of my bridesmaids also attend when possible. Their input helps with the decision process. However, gathering of data falls 99% on me. I know it'll get easier as more decisions are finalized but I'm getting a little burnt out.

    True/ False - I would love to have more help in planning and everything, but the simple fact is the control freak inside of me wont allow me too. So when my head is spinning they all just look at me and be like give her some space. Never thought I would be a bridezilla but yeah its not me though its the control freak on the inside...

    False: I found books and articles to help me and then too much input instead of help my mother-in-law and her sisters. Pinterest was extremely helpful to find ideas to make my wedding gorgeous with a Disney theme and not childish.

    True and false .
    Sometime si feel I need more help but then the help comes and it doesn’t really help , it makes me more confused and stressed. My future husband helps me a lot , however he is not a planner as me so that’s kinda very interesting right now .

    True, my FH helps a little but I wish he was more involved. Most of the responses I get are that he doesn't care and to pick what I want.

    I totally understand! It's a lot to do by yourself. Does your FS help with the planning at all?

    He has lots of opinions on most things but I usually do the legwork and present him with a few options to choose from. He seems to get overwhelmed if it's too much information. I'm trying to delegate things to him but I feel I need to constantly remind him and micromanage or else it won't get done, which only causes more work for me than if I'd kist done it myself.
