How involved in the wedding planning has your other half been? What areas have you seen they have been more interested in?

Only thing he’s not interested in is my dress 🥰

My husband had a say in every decision. I found a lot of the ideas and ran them all by him. He organised the music for both day and evening really.

My hubby was a chef so the food was completely his department!! Think the only thing he didn’t have any involvement in was my dress etc. Everything else we did together. We played so many songs on an evening and chose together which ones to have. We chose the favours, the flowers, photographer, cake together. Oh I did the kids an activity pack each that he just agreed to but I did on my own.

First of all he said just tell me when and where but now hes making our cake, sorting our first dance and playlist, sorting his suits out, begining to realise im a bit of a control freak 🤷‍️🤣🤣🤣

He’s said where it’s going to be, where our reception is and what our colour scheme is! I’ve added ideas!
We both want the same thing at the end of the day so I’m happy he’s got a massive part in the planning

As long as I run my ideas by him he lets me get on with it lol. He is however sorting out the suits x

Very involved. We've made all plans together and the decision has only been final when we both agree on it. He's also very arty and builds websites for a living so he's designed our save the dates, invites, table plan and place name cards based on ideas we both like the look of from pinterest xx

All of it. We discuss everything together. Nothing is final unless we both agree. A lot more ideas come from me.. But they get discussed and agreed on by us both. The only thing he's not been involved in is the dress

He has a say but it’s completely my vision which he is supportive of. He just wants me to be his wife, he doesn’t care how we get there 🤷‍️

My h2bs was most keen on the menu tasting we were half an hour early for that! Then i managed to drag him to the shops to try on a few suits everything else is down to me even the budget lol

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

We are doing it together, although she's better at colours & decorations etc but we discuss all of it (bar her dress of course.)

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

My other half is involved with guest list, invites, entertainment and grooms wear! Hes been really helpful although sometimes a struggle to get him away from the xbox long enough to plan

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

His main input was what suit he wore - most other decisions he left up to me 🤷‍♀️

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

My partner comes up with the colour themes and what type of wedding he would like. We both like the theme and the colour and both agreed. We both agreed to pick the wedding invites. We are both planning it together

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

My hubby literally sorted the suits and was only really interested in the food!! He tried to be interested in the rest for my benefit.... but ultimately it was all me!! X

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

Mine wants to be involved in everything 🙈😂 it’s so annoying! 🙈

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

We both planned invites and the cake and love letter sign and post box and venue rest of it he let me do xxx as it was my first time but i say was joint effort hed differ as he did things he didnt have to do but did

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

Completely - the only bit he hasn’t been involved in is getting my dress, and the bridesmaids dresses. He even came to the flower appointment

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

My husband was pretty hands on, we picked most things together x

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

Not really invloved at all :(i ask what he wants and he just I'm happy if you're happy. Feel like I'm doing it all alone but that's just him.hes not one for getting involved in stuff like this

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

Majority of it. He's picked his guests and friends, had input in invites, helped me with styles of dresses, hairstyles, he's invested in our music choices.. I've picked my flowers and posies for bridesmaids, he's asked my daughters to be his best ladies... Xx

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

My fiance was very involved early on. Was suggesting venues and arranging viewings and colour schemes and pricing up suits. He's sort lost interest a little as its now all about invitations and food but i'm sure he'll pick up the ball again.

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

My husband was involved in everything apart from my dress, bridesmaid’s dresses, flowers and hair and makeup. A lot of the time I would have preferred him not to be so involved though, as I he is very indecisive in general so he was slowing the whole process down on a lot of the things which I thought could have been sorted a lot quicker 😂😂😂. But it all worked out in the end anyway so that’s the main thing I suppose.

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

mine just let me get on with it till the last few weeks and tbh that's when i needed him obviously we agreed on colour scheme and venue etc before i started planning tbh im glad he let me get on as we had an absolutely amazing day and night fabulous turn out brilliant xxx

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

My HTB chose the dress with me 😊

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

We chose a venue & food together but I did most of the research. We've discussed guests, cake and suits/colours - otherwise I'm doing most of it which suits me as I can keep everything together and I'm the more creative of the two of us. He brings me food and caffeine when I'm planning so I'm pretty happy with that <3

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

All me!!😵😵

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

Errrrm not a lot. He’s very interested in getting married but not with the planning which is fine by me as I get to have what I want! I’ve chosen colour pretty much all of it from colour schemes to cake flavours. He chose the church and has added to the guest list 😂

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

He's been very involved, it's our day so I'm pleased he is showing an interest sone guys just dont feel comfortable with the 'fluffy' side of things and it's no measure of how much they want to marry you. Mine has chosen what the guys are wearing, been involved with the overall theme, what flowers, what bridesmaids dresses, what food etc. We chose venue, music etc together x

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

We chose and planned everything together as thats how to should be!

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

I pretty much planned everything. Asked his advise on everything though (between this and that etc) the most important thing I wanted his opinion on was my dress, not for him but for me. He didn’t see my final choice until he seen me down the isle though!! It was nice to know what he wanted to see me in etc! But he just wanted me to be happy so he was happy for me to do everything, he came go see venues with me etc x

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

My husband was more hands on than I would have guessed!
He wanted input with the venue, food, cake, photographer, flowers, and obviously his own suit! He would have helped me pick my dress if I'd have allowed him as well!
He left all the little details to me, like the table and venue decorations but I was really grateful for his input with the rest of it ☺

UKbride Member 7 Nov 2019

He has been quite involved with picking our venue, food, cake and he has choose everything for groomsmen. I have just planned the decorations, bridal party bits and what the invites/save the dates look like x

UKbride Member 8 Nov 2019

We pretty much chose everything together. He came to the flower appointment but when it came to discussing mine, bridesmaid's and flower girl's flowers, he was sent on a walkabout. I chose the colour scheme but he chose the shade of cravat he wanted to wear. I chose my wedding dress, with the help of my 2 daughters and the finer details of table decoration was left to me apart from the cards for the table stands. Everything worked well.

UKbride Member 8 Nov 2019

We are marrying abroad so we chose the venue together and he’s sorted the food for our homecoming party plus of course what he’s wearing. Other than that I’ve chosen everything else, men are not interested in colour schemes of napkins etc they are men!

UKbride Member 8 Nov 2019

So far my other half has been keen to be involved, especially where food and cake is concerned. The only bit he doesn’t want to be involved in is my dress xx

UKbride Member 8 Nov 2019

Mine was interested in the venue locations & visited them all with me .....
Also very interested in food menu choices & tasted away through all the choices just to check ..... 🤣
Helped with printing of invites & order of service sheets ....
Plus he chose his own music shuffle that he had playing in the church to help with his anxiety whilst awaiting for me to arrive .....

UKbride Member 8 Nov 2019

He's been interested in pretty much all of it, aside from anything to do with the bridal party 🤣

UKbride Member 11 Nov 2019

My guy has been very involved most of the wedding we both decided on things but he chose the song for our first dance which I had never heared before but it suits us perfectly
