6 Steps to Get Your Fiance More Involved in Wedding Planning~ By Hanna Heath

Calaveras County, CA....For some couples, women take the reins on wedding planning. Though this can be fun and enjoyable for both parties, it can breed resentment as well. The bride may feel that she is doing all the work and that he doesn't care about the wedding. The groom, in turn, may feel that she's taken over and not taking any of his ideas into consideration. To solve this miscommunication follow these six steps......

Go wine tasting together, and choose what types of wines you will have at your reception.


Step 1: Take note of your fiance's hobbies and tastes. See if any of them fall in line with an aspect of wedding planning.

Step 2: Ask your fiance what he's most looking forward to about the wedding.

Step 3: Mention any aspect of that part of the planning process that might still need to be completed.

Step 4: Turn over any resources you may have already found regarding that aspect to your fiance.

Step 5: Involve your fiance in all aspects of the wedding that are specific to him, such as his tuxedo or groomsmen gifts. Let him take charge there if he wants to.

Step 6: Make menu and cake tasting a shared experience by planning a day around it. You can go to a local hot spot after wards or plan a romantic

And if those six steps don't work try these helpful tips: Men usually enjoy the food tasting part of wedding planning, so try to make it as fun and stress free as possible.

Many men don't like participating in the planning process because they view it as a stressful activity that may end up causing fights due to differing opinions. Do your best to dispel these fears.

Try to think of what else your fiance has on his plate before fretting about his lack of involvement in the planning. Does he have a big presentation to make? Is he the first one of his friends to get married, and therefore doesn't talk about issues like marriage or weddings very often? Is he trying to support himself through school while still giving you the wedding of your dreams? Remember that a lack of initiative does not mean a lack of interest.

Good Luck, with wedding planning.
