When we got engaged, Rooster and I had been dating for four years and lived together for three. There was no mystery left. Even when it came to wedding planning.
From day one, it was perfectly clear that I, and not Roo, would be taking lead on the wedding planning. And not just because I’m the bride. It comes down to three things: (1) I’m obsessed with weddings, (2) I’m known to be a crafty gal and love to plan parties, and (3) I care way more about the details than Rooster does.
I thought that “taking the lead” on wedding planning was going to mean making most of the decisions myself, but Rooster has surprised me with how much he wants to be involved. He’s been right there with me every step of the way—choosing a venue, caterer, photographer, and everything else—with just as many questions and opinions. We’ve even split the legwork 50/50. It just worked out that we take turns handling vendor contacts and signing contracts. At the start of our engagement, I didn’t expect planning would be such a united process.
