During wedding planning, most of the preparation revolves around the bride. From the dress to hair and makeup, it’s not unusual for the planning to leave the groom in the shadows. It is important for the groom to contribute, because after all – it is also his special day, which he will only experience once in a lifetime. While it may be overwhelming for the groom to have to plan such a big event, it’s important for every bride to ask for his opinions and input on certain things. Below are a few things that groom’s can help plan.
The Guest List
And we are not just talking about a list of his friends and family. This also involves the setting arrangements as well. The groom knows his family and friends better than his fiancé in most instances and will know who will want to sit with who when it comes to seating charts.
The Wedding Vows
Constructing your own vows together is truly something every couple should do. It’s important for the groom to rehearse his lines and say it with meaning, that way it shows that he has taken the time to prepare his vows.
This one is especially important if you don’t opt for a grooms cake as well. Have a cake that you both like from aesthetic to flavor is important because it’s a reflection of both you.
Planning a Day with Your Groomsmen
Planning a bachelor party with your best man and groomsmen is just as important as the ladies day out. Don’t let the days leading up to the wedding slip away from you. It’s your time to celebrate!
Another important one that needs both the bride and grooms influence is the music. Just like the brides dance with her dad, the groom should have some music he wants to dance to with his mom. Not only that but you want music that reflects both of you as a couple, not just one of you.
The favors are a gift from the both of you. It only makes sense that the groom would have a say in what gifts are given. Think about things that both of you like and it will mean so much more to your guests.
