Would you have trusted your hubby to arrange your wedding? f your not yet married would you trust them to arrange the wedding?

Honestly I bet my husband would have done fine because he would of asked for helped from others. Might not have been my dream arrangements, but the thought of no stress and letting him do it all would have been worth it. Wink ha ha.

My DH could totally have done it and our wishes were similar enough that I wouldn't have been too disappointed.

What a good question! It would have been a different affair, but it would have still been pretty great, I bet. He was actually pretty involved anyway (we shopped for invitation stuff and assembled them together, made all of our own music mixes together, etc.) Although he would definitely have needed some help if he was flying entirely solo...as it was, one of his groomsmen did have to stop him from putting on his shirt for the ceremony directly from the package, with all the square wrinkles and creases, and iron it for him. :roll:

One thing I wish he HAD decided for himself was not to listen to me about getting a haircut. I made him go to a real place instead of just cutting it in the kitchen like normal, and they made him look really weird. Oh well!

My DH was very involved in the planning process but only in a capacity of choosing between options I presented to him. I think I gave him a few tasks like picking the rings and the cake flavors. We definitely made all the final decisions together but if he'd planned it out completely it wouldn't have come together the way it did (he's a HUGE procrastinator) and a lot of the details (like guest book, centerpieces, attendant gifts, etc.) would have been left out. Also, because we had a destination wedding the planning required constant communication with our guests. He's incapable of that aspect. There's a reason the majority of guests were from my family (aside from the fact that his family is bat**** crazy).

No. No, no, no. Really really no Smile

We have actually talked about it before and he said he wouldn't have thought of anything. He would have struggled to remember to book the Church!! I don't even trust him to organise himself to get to work on time with lunch.... Smile When I lleave him with the kids I leave him notes everywhere to remember to do stuff. "don't forget to change Tobey's nappy." "Don't forget to feed them" "Tobey needs a nap". He's actually self confessed useless on organising anything Lol

My DH pretty much did do the wedding, well, he did as much as I did. My mom did the bulk of it. I wanted to elope or have a destination wedding or even just a small church ceremony but DH's mom and my dad freaked at the idea so I told DH if I had to be sucked into planning a wedding, he was going to do the work with me. It really wasn't hard at all that I remember. I'm fairly easy to please and we had a "western" style wedding where my parents made a lot of the decor themselves. I seriously was the least stressed out bride to be that I've ever seen, if anything didn't get done or was done different than what I had planned then so be it. I forgot my veil when I went to the hairdresser the morning of the wedding and I was seriously the only one that wasn't a bit concerned about it, if I couldn't get it to town before she was done with my hair then I just wouldn't wear it, problem solved Smile So, yeah, DH did a fantastic job planning the wedding and picking stuff out right alongside me and honestly, he's better with details and getting stuff done sooner than I ever will be anyway so it really makes sense that out of the two of us he probably did most of the work Biggrin

Seeing as hubby was doped up on painkillers for chronic back pain the entire wedding planning period, then had surgery one month before our planned wedding date so we had to move everything out by a month a few months before, there is no way hubby could have planned it. If he tried it would have been very different, in fact hubby texted me at eleven pm the night before our wedding to tell me hehad left his shoes in the car and could i get them to him before the wedding. Yup i had to run around making arrangments to get his shoes to him

DH was clueless when it came to weddings so I wouldn't have trusted him to plan it because he didn't even know what there needed to be other than a church, reception site, and food. But it would have all worked out if he did. There just might not have been music, flowers, or pictures I guess. I bet we would have eloped if it was in his hands...lol

This. It's not that I wouldn't have trusted him to make the right decisions, he just would have had no clue what needed to be done & when. I presented him with options and he helped choose the big stuff, but I don't think he wanted to be more involved than that.

if i wasn't such a control freak, and if there was no family influence, then yes. Both of our families, but mainly his wanted certain things and there was some pressure about things like the church, wedding party etc. DH just wanted to make everyone happy so i think he would have done what they wanted if he planned everything. It sounds ridiculous but i had to fight very hard to NOT have some of those things others I gave in to. But, he has good taste and besides all of that I would trust him.

Probably not, I don't know if he would have thought of all the details. He would have done an ok job, but I had certain things I wanted so I told him my ideas and had him help me choose stuff. He did help a lot and was very involved,.
