    I’d say that my parents are definitely more involved than his.

    Mine 100% - his live in another state. Mine are down the street. They helped with EVERYTHING. His parents always wanted to know what they could do, but they were also relieved to know we didn't expect a thing. We told them to just show up and have a great time - which they did Smiley smile

    His, only because they are actually in the picture. Even then they helped when asked, they didn't just stick their nose in when we didn't want the help or opinion.

    My mother. Since I am an only child and my father is deceased, we are pretty close. We constantly talked about the wedding and she offered to pay for the majority of it. My husband's family could not contribute financially, and his mother is judgmental and we don't have the greatest relationship, so I rarely discussed anything with her.

    Mine were (well, my mom was) more involved because we allowed them to be involved. His parents can be overbearing, try to push their opinions on us, and like to make mountains out of mole hills so we didn't want them involved in planning.

    I guess my parents, by nature of the wedding being at their house. My mom had to run point on some site visits for me. But, they were all pretty darn hands off with anything decision-making related (our parents are a dream, haha)

    Neither. I did most of the planning. His mom wanted to taste cakes for us but our venue didn't have that and it would have been a 1.5 hour drive. Each mother helped me pick something small that I wore the day of and that was it.

    Neither, really. My parents are super busy and haven’t shown TONS of interest. Which has been frustrating but I’m letting it go. His parents are also busy, and live about an hour away so we don’t see them as often as we’d like, but they have very interested in hearing about our details when we do see them!

    Mine for sure.

    his mom's side asks us about it and he will vent to them but they don't really input anything.

    his dad's side doesn't care or want to hear any of it, they just say we should go to the courthouse.

    My side wont stop inputting their opinions lol

    Neither although my mom is a little involved. It sounds like her and my sister might be throwing me a bridal shower and my mom has been to a couple dress appointments with me. Kinda going solo on the wedding planning but maybe that will end up being a good thing.

    Considering his parents have passed away and I’m doing this solo: neither

    My parents are more involved. His mother passed away past year and his dad already remarried.. makes it hard to have the "stepmother " involved. Plus I'm a mamas girl

    Still early to say but I think it will more likely be his family.

    Sadly neither. My parents passed away when I was a teenager, and his passed away about 10 years ago, so it's pretty much just he and I doing the planning.

    I think my mom is the most involved of our parents but FH and I are planning everything together so we have asked for very little input from anyone else.

    Neither. My parents are deceased and his mom lives across country so it’s just me and my sister on FaceTime ( thank god for technology) and my wedding planner.

    That's always better, instead of just assuming their opinions are more important than yours!!
