Is it necessary to take your fiancé’s opinions into consideration when you are planning your wedding? I’m not sure if I really want to take everything, my fiancé has to say into consideration when it comes to planning our wedding because honestly, his idea of what will look great and mine differ greatly. Every time I show him an idea for the wedding, he says no. He has an excuse why he thinks this won’t work and why he thinks that won’t work. It is frustrating me to no end to know that I am having such a hard time planning the wedding simply because he keeps putting in his two cents.
In an effort to make the planning a bit easier, I asked my fiancé to take the time to make a list of the things he envisioned for our wedding. I figured this would help me to get a better idea of what he wanted so that we did not have to fight and fuss about the little things. He took the time to draw a sketch of what he wanted everything to look like for the wedding. It was very detailed and had many intricate decorations that I was not expecting. I told him that it was helpful to know what he expected, but we may have to compromise to make sure that we are both satisfied with how the wedding is going to go.
We have decided that we are having a larger wedding than we originally planned. We figured out that our families would take up over thirty chairs alone. We still have close friends to invite too so that fifty person limit is definitely going to be blown. We have not started a formal guest list yet, however we have started to make a list of whom we would like to invite. My fiancé wants more people to come to the wedding than I initially though. We are debating about having one long table for everyone to sit at or having a bunch of little tables. I keep going back and forth on the issue because I am not sure which would be best. I want for everyone to be as comfortable as they can possibly be, however we do not want people sitting the entire time. We want for people to have fun at the wedding and are providing them with many activities that they can do. We hope the wedding and reception go off without a hitch.
