I hope you’ve had a good week so far and happy Friday! We go over a lot of topics in our blog posts and I have decided to add a very important topic that comes up quite often when the hectic planning begins. The funny thing is I have heard/read a lot of brides ask “How much responsibility should my future hubby have in the planning?”. To be honest it really should be up to your loved one if he wants responsibility for certain things and if he even wants any to begin with.
In the case that you have the grumpy hubby-to-be that refuses to be involved in any part of the big event (it happens a LOT so don’t take it personally .. I think it’s just something to do with the male instinct) then make sure to explain to him that you need a little help to relieve some stress. In the case that you don’t need help as much as you want him to create some personal touches for the wedding, make sure to explain how much that means to you. I am sure he would understand and help you out even if he is muttering to himself the whole time while tying ribbons around each gift favor. (Music helps with toning out excess noise 😉 ).
If you are the type of bride with a hubby that cannot wait to start planning the whole wedding… well then I must say you are one of the lucky ones. That being said, there are a lot of times when things get out of control and they need a little help with toning down the planner within them. If you want to be the one planning make sure to explain to them that you love the fact that he is helping but you would rather do this together and share the experience. On the other hand if you have no problem with giving away the responsibility then just make yourself a margarita and relax while your future hubby takes care of everything.
There is no real answer to this question, only scenarios that could happen. The responsibility should be with the person that wants to do the most planning even if that means hiring a professional. One thing I must agree with is that whenever I do see personal touches in a wedding I simply melt. Whether it’s from the bride and groom or each of them, I instantly fall in love. A personal touch is the best way to tie in this special event and your new life together.
Well I hope you enjoyed the post!
Have a great weekend!
