Fellas! Today’s blog is for you! You’ve asked the big question so it’s your fault your fiancé is about to freak out for the next 9-12 months…just kidding, kinda. Like most guys, you may think you don’t have much input during the wedding planning process but that’s just not true today. It is more than getting your groomsmen together for a tux fitting. Your fiancé may look like they have it all together but honestly, they would love for you to inquire about DJs or even set up cake tasting appointments. Make your fiancé feel like she has you as her teammate in the planning of your big day. Traditionally, the bride and her parents plan the wedding. Today, more couples are planning and paying for the wedding themselves. But where do your parents come in? It has become more common for the groom’s parents to helps with transportation for the wedding day and plan the wedding rehearsal dinner. They can also help take care of floral costs, the DJ and even the bar bill for the reception. It may be wise to set up a time for you, your fiancé and parents to sit and chat about what you’d like them to help with. Most importantly guys, stay by your fiancé’s side. Take on a project and step in when you see them start to get overwhelmed. Be their superman, that’s one of their reasons for saying ‘I do’.
Bonus tid bit! Groomsmen, it is your job to get together and plan the groom’s bachelor party. Pay close attention to the date of his wedding and plan for a fun night out a week or two before he becomes a married man. A trip to Vegas takes planning.
