Get your groom involved in the wedding plans
If your groom is like most, they assume all they have to do is rent a tux, plan a honeymoon and show up at the altar! Do you want him to be more hands-on in the wedding planning process? Before you say “yes,” that means you really have to want his opinions and ideas. Don’t ask for his help if you are a Type A control freak that doesn’t really want it.
The easiest way to get him in on the planning is to sit down and ask him what he would like to take on or at least give input on. He may care less about flowers and bouquets, but may have a sweet tooth and would love to pick cake designs and flavors. He could care less about favors and centerpieces, but may love music and want to audition bands or DJ’s and put together playlists. The thought of invitations and programs may bore him, but choosing a menu and signature
drinks may spark his interest. And it is a dual effort, so if there’s something you particularly don’t want to do…don’t be afraid to ask your groom to help out.
If you are marrying this man, you know him well enough to ask for his input on certain things and steer clear of other wedding topics that may not be his forte’. The key is to get him excited about the aspects of the wedding that really interest him and allow him to be part of the process. And don’t just dictate what you want, really get in tune with each other’s thoughts and feelings about the wedding. Yes, it’s your big day…but it is his too!
