wonderful just marry couples who have one spouse or the other planning just
about everything and they often ask us how much should my future spouse be

before we get started have you subscribed to our channel yet if not be

we have a new video up every Wednesday so on this week’s segment of tips and
tricks from the recently hitched one of our brides Kate actually gave this
advice that she wanted us to share with everyone she said I also should have had
a conversation with my husband about how much he really wanted to be involved he
liked to take part but having to cross-check decisions with him made
everything take longer after the fact he said he probably didn’t need to be
checked with on so many things but he usually agreed with me anyway by the end
of this video you’ll know how to have a conversation with your future spouse and
how to decide how much that person wants to be involved and how you can get them
involved and have fun while planning your wedding so here are some ways you
can get a reluctant spouse to be involved in your wedding planning
process first of all everybody loves a cake and
food tasting right am i right out there listening to me who doesn’t love to go
taste cakes and who doesn’t love to taste the food that’s going to be served
on the wedding day so that is one that I know that even our most laid-back either
groom or bride wants to participate in so that’s a really great way to get your
future spouse involved the second thing that I think everybody likes to be
involved in are coming up with music selections for the wedding day you know
it’s such a personal decision you have romantic memories of when you first met
maybe there was music playing or when you first fell in love or something
wonderful a special time that you share together so very often both spouses
would like to make some sort of contribution that way and let me let you
in on a little secret I actually had a wedding where the bride picked out a
song on her own that turned out to be the groom’s song with one of his future
or excuse me ex-girlfriends so you really want to make sure not to include
that so be sure to run those music selections
by everybody involved are you enjoying the video so far if so leave us a
comment below and say I’m planning my wedding we want to hear from you number
three a really great way to get your reluctant spouse to be involved is to
have him or her help pick out the bridal attire or the groom’s attire you know I
know I personally would get really freaked out if my husband came up to me
and said honey here’s this great dress that you’re gonna wear on our very
special day everybody likes to be involved in how he or she is going to
look and that’s a great way to get that person involved in making some decisions
