Would you rather... hand over complete planning control to your parents or your future in-laws?

Between you and your fiancé(e), there’s probably one set of your parents that you’d trust more to take the lead on your wedding planning! Whether they throw better backyard barbeques or simply know how to entertain a large crowd...

Would you rather... hand over complete planning control to your parents or your future in-laws?

Next question: Would you rather... have a dress that looks amazing in person but so-so in pictures or vice versa?

    Definitely my parents. His parents have only been difficult and unhelpful. His dad doesn’t want to come if his moms there (obviously she’s coming) and his mom told him to take new engagement photos where he’s not smiling bc he looks old when he smiles (he’s 34 and he doesn’t).

    Definitely my parents. My dad would 100% throw an awesome party! FMIL makes things about herself so if she were in charge she would do what she wanted without thinking of us.

    Probably my future in-laws. My future mother in-law is so creative and crafty that she could do a lot of DIY things, she's also more similar to me than my own mother

    That's hard. My mom is not involved in my life so she's out of the question. I feel like my dad would do an okay job, but he may invite a bunch of random people we wouldn't care for. My FH's dad is barely around, so I would trust him with planning. My FMIL is kind of narcissistic and loves when attention is on her, so I don't know about her. I would probably choose my dad.

    Aww, that's awesome! It's great that she has similar style preferences, which probably makes planning easier! Smiley smile

    I already gave control of decorations and the menu to my mom. My fiance and I are both laid back and dont have a lot of opinions on decorations, and moms paying for the food anyway, she even helped find the venue!

    Probably my in-laws. At least my future sister in law is creative. My parents not so much.

    My parents for sure... My mother in law is much older and wouldn't know what I want.

    My dad and his wife. Especially if that means they are paying for it to! My step mom is creative.

    My parents. In laws would probably get decorations from the dollar store and cook the food themselves.

    Most definitely my parents. His parents have a very different idea of what we should be doing. My parents would know more of what we want without having to ask, even though they would.

    My in-laws without a doubt, my family had little to no interest while H's was all about the wedding and every other event associated.

    My parents I guess, but I wouldn't let anyone in my family do it.

    My future in laws! I feel like my parents are a little too old fashioned for my taste, lol.

    I would say my Mom. My dad lives half the country away.
