Does your DH have business cards? Keep a stack in your purse. If somebody approaches you with a question you simply reply, "You can email/call DH to discuss that. Here's his contact info."
Most people look at musical theatre and think "Why are those people singing and dancing in the street?" I'm sort of the opposite. I see a street full of people and think, "Why aren't they?"

I think if you feel  that you need to 'soften' the no then a little bit of explanation may be appropriate - e.g. "You'll have to ask DH  -I'm not involved in organising that" or "I can't really pass on a message - we find it is much more effective if messages go direct to DH, there is less chance of misunderstanding or the message being forgotten"
