Naturally, there are just some things about the wedding that usually only the bride can handle–the dress, the flowers, and the bridesmaid dresses are some to name a few–but that doesn’t mean there’s no room for the groom to help. It’s always a good idea to remind your grooms that it’s their special day too! Here are a handful of things that the groom can take charge of during wedding planning!
1. Venue scouting
It goes without saying that venue is key. It’s where one of the most important events in your life will take place, so don’t take it lightly! It’s always good to have options, so the more choices, the better. Your grooms can help you by rounding up a list of worthy venues, and can even accompany you during oculars!
2. The guest list
One of the biggest struggles of wedding planning is managing the guest list. It can be a tad bit overwhelming at times. As much as possible, we want all our loved ones and relatives to be there, but we have to remember that we have to be practical. Grooms can, at times, put things into perspective by asking the important questions like, “Do I want this person at my wedding?”
Perhaps a fun task and challenge for your groom–picking out the selection of alcohol for the wedding! If your soon-to-be husband knows a thing or two about the best brews and wine, this will be no big deal for him. He might also be resourceful enough to look for the best deals and bundles to save money!
4. The honeymoon
The honeymoon is a time for both the bride and groom to enjoy themselves as they dip their toes into married life. Grooms should weigh in on the possible places they want to go to with their you, their soon-to-be wives, and plan what they want to do too. It’s important that both of you will be able to look back on your honeymoon and remember it fondly.
If your fiancé is really interested and particular about his music, let him take over this part of the wedding! From the band choice to the DJ, he should have it covered.
6. Hands-on labor
If he is especially handy, he can lend a helping hand in D.I.Y. decorations such as signs or placards to be placed in the reception area. If your groom is feeling extra creative, he can even go the extra mile and D.I.Y. wedding table favors!
7. Suits and grooming
If the bride puts in effort to look stunning on her wedding day, the groom should too! Grooms can pamper themselves too by going for a nail appointment, getting a haircut, and a shave! Don’t forget to tell them to pay a visit to their tailor for their suits, along with the best man and groomsmen too.
8. A second opinion
Sometimes, brides can feel exhausted and tired after planning. Grooms offer a fresh set of eyes to weigh in on important decisions. Be it the invitation, the cake, or the flower arrangements, ask your fiancé for his opinion and his favorite choices.
