Just imagine: Your groom-to-be decides that he wants to take over the wedding planning, from the big details (like the wedding venue and guest list) down to the small ones (like the escort cards and ceremony programs). What do you say? If your initial reaction is a knee-jerk, "No way!" then you're not alone, but if you're Kim Kardashian, you might say, "Sure, why not?"
Over the weekend, the newly-engaged reality star talked wedding planning, and told People Magazine: "We honestly haven't had a moment to talk about it or even breathe, so we haven't really talked about it, but whatever he wants." Talk about trusting! Is anyone else surprised that Kim doesn't have any plans for her upcoming nuptials?
"Whatever Kanye wants" could even put the Kardashian-Humphires wedding to shame—after all, this was the man who proposed by renting out an entire baseball stadium and routinely wears bejeweled face masks. If Kim wants a low-key ceremony, Kanye might not be the person to make that happen. Then again, would anyone blame Kim if she's had enough wedding planning for one life time? For a stressed-out bride (and, don't forget, a new mom!) having Kanye plan the wedding could be a lifesaver.

Don't get us wrong, even if they're not taking over every aspect, grooms-to-be can definitely be a huge help during wedding planning. Even if you want to make most of the decisions on your own, your guy can be a great second opinion—or first! Does he have a great ear for music? Ask for his help picking a DJ or band. Is he a master mixologist at home? Then get his opinion on your signature cocktail and beverages. It's all about playing to his strengths. After all, you don't have to be Kanye to plan a wedding!
