Wedding planning is often stereotyped into only being planned by the bride, but as modern brides we want our groom to take part and be more involved!. These simple tips can get your groom EXCITED about wedding planning! Yes!
1. Beginning Plans
When it’s time to start the planning process, sit down together and decide what you must have and what you can leave out of the wedding,. Then you can decide who will take care of what. If you both tackle planning from the beginning, it’s a great way to help you each define your roles in the planning process.
2. Be Open Minded
Don’t forget to ask your groom for his opinion. It can be easy to get caught up in the Bride mentality, but it’s his wedding day too! It’s easy for Brides to subconsciously take control, but don’t let it seem like his opinion doesn’t matter, or he may start backing away from the planning process.
Every time you go to Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, or Crate & Barrel, you are probably subconsciously adding things to your wedding registry. When the time comes to do it for real, bring your groom along! There may be some cool house gadgets he wants that will be an amazing addition to your new home. (PRO TIP: If your groom hates shopping in general, there are many stores that offer the ability to add and remove gifts from the registry on their website.)
4. Make It A Friendly Competition
If you are still having trouble getting him involved, make it a little competition. After all, who doesn’t love winning? Set little challenges for your beau that will make him feel productive and relinquish some control on your end.
Most of all, just find ways to make it work between the two of you. Discovering your likes and dislikes and working together will truly create a unique wedding that is the best of you both. If you have any questions, or if your beau doesn’t know where to start, send him our way! We can help guide him along and nail down exactly what he needs to get done.
