Last question!!! Starting right now - exactly where you are currently in your planning process - who would you rather hand over complete planning control to? Your parents? Or your in-laws?

    I would hand it over to my inlaws because they are already helping so much and my mom has done nothing to help or contribute..

    I would hand it over to my parents, just because my mom does a lot of events already so she is good at planning and preparing.

    My parents! They know me best! His family would make it all accommodating to them and their wants rather than what we want.

    I would let my dad do all the planning, and only him.

    No. Back awhile ago my mom was trying to plan out everything in my life including my wedding. I'm planning my wedding with only some input from friends and family

    If I had to, my parents which basically means my mother. She's been with me nearly every step of the way and I'm confident that she could execute the planning the way I'd want it.

    Absolutly my parents! My in-laws are wonderful and we'll intentioned, but that have a completely different idea of what a wedding should be like from my family. They would invite hundreds of people and spend WAAAAY too much on food and booze. My parents would do what we want Smiley smile

    With the amount of “discussions” I’ve had with both my mother and FMIL, I don’t think I’d actually be comfortable handing my wedding off to either... but I think I’d have to go with my parents... because of my dad. I think he honestly knows what I want in the wedding best.

    I think either would do a good job but I’d rather hand it off to my parents.

    Neither of them. My parents are stuck in the 80’s and his family is way too formal.

    My parents, only because they know what I like and I trust their organization skills. My in-laws are amazing and I did ask them to do some tasks for me, but they don't know my style or likes, so definitely the parents!

    My parents I guess... because they know me better, my style, etc... and my mom is where I get my super-planner-ness from. My FMIL is fine, but I don't think my in-laws would know what to do really, either... She's been very friendly/helpful with everything, but has a lot of "why" questions or how things are supposed to go.

    I'd probably chose my FMIL. She and I have a similar aesthetic and taste so, while it would be much more over the top and expensive than I'd likely choose I know it would be absolutely gorgeous and we'd only have the best.

    I would pick my mum. We are super close and she knows me well enough to know what I like and don't like and how I would like things to go.

    My mum. Definitely. If I had to pick them I’d pick my mum. I love my mother in law but holy crap we have entirely different opinions on things and she would plan a massive catholic ceremony. Whereas my mum and I have much more similar taste.
