Let the Groom Help?!?
This is my Groom, isn't he handsome? How lucky am I? Right. Great Husband. Terrible Wedding Planner. It's not like he didn't care or didn't want to be a part of it, it was just not something that wasn't in his comfort zone. He was great with do you like this entree or that entree. He picked the venue, and hotel. I used him like a sounding board (oh, and a checkbook too!)
Planning a Wedding is not for everyone. With busy lives, and the stress and events that a Wedding and impending new Marriage brings up, it just seems like there is not enough time to get it done. A bride could use some help. I think it is great that more grooms are getting involved with the planning process. As with everything the more cooks that you get in the kitchen, the more likely dinner is going to be a mess.
That is not to say that they cannot be a help to you. So, before you have a Groomzilla on your hand, let's figure out a plan for getting the busy Bride alittle help.
What to do Together: Big Tasks
Pick your venues
Pick your date
Decide on colors
Let Him Help with:
I never expect that Bride would make big Wedding decisions without talking to the Groom and the same rules in reverse. Working together is the best thing that a couple can do, it really helps you understand how you work as a team.
Regardless of who does the majority of planning the big key to a successful Wedding and then Marriage is to support each other through the process!
