I'm lucky to have a fiance who is very hands on and supportive all the way. Even on tiny unimportant girly stuff like choosing between air brush and regular make-up (we chose air brush, less photoshopping for our photographers, haha). He helps me keep my sanity intact by being my referee when I start to worry about trivial stuff. He helps me pick which stuff to get stressed about and which ones I should just let go. He's my spokesperson, my driver, my negotiator, my advisor, my consultant. He's always there on every decision I have to make.
Just to be clear, whoever plans the wedding doesn't mean he/she is the weakest link. You shouldn't be proud that you're not doing your share because you have someone who's doing it willingly for you. Planning a wedding also prepares you for your marriage. It tests how good of a team player you both are. If you're not doing your share doesn't that make you selfish? Either that or the partner is a control freak and doesn't want the other partner's inputs. But what do I know, I'm not an expert on relationship. I'm not Doctor Love, haha. I'm not judging. We are all different. I guess some are just not into all that wedding prep stuff and we have to respect that. But I'm not saying the non-participating partner is off the hook. Please be sensitive. You both really should work as a team. There should be equal distribution of work. If you really can't put an effort because you are always extremely busy then I guess that's fine. Just make sure you're not just making excuses to not participate.
Anyway, this blog is really about how to make sure you and you're partner are still talking after all the wedding talk. I got this from 1weddingsource.com and thought is worth sharing.
