It all started after I proposed to my wife. I spent about a month planning my proposal and at the time I thought all the planning and details I put into my proposal was a lot. Little did I know that the real work comes afterwards with that my proposal leads to… a wedding.
Once it became time to do some wedding planning I search for all the advice I could get. The majority of which was targeted towards my wife. Luckily for me my wife, and most wives, want to have majority control over picking out their perfect wedding and rightfully so.
However, I still wanted to help out in any way that I could but again I couldn’t find a man’s guide to weddings. So, at that time I just ended up winging it and scrounging up any helpful tid-bits I could find here and there. Turns out… there’s a lot more we grooms are expected to do.
I had to take care of my groomsmen, take over some pre-wedding details, but I also got to take over the honeymoon plans which was a lot of fun! All in all, it turned out to be more than I expected but I wanted to show my wife that I was involved and actually put my effort in. The one thing that I’m happy I decided to do at my wedding was having an open bar. If you take any advice from me let it be that one. You can have an open bar that’s budget friendly but whatever you must do have one. It really helps loosen everyone up and provides a laid-back environment even if everyone’s all dressed up.
Guys, your wife has been thinking about her big wedding day for some time now. She’s going to have a lot on her plate with planning, picking out color schemes, and all the minor details that are going to bring this special day together.
Your role is to help make this job easier for your wife. There are some things you’ll only help out with and other duties that will be yours alone. This is the perfect time to show your support and show that you’re involved.
So, guys, take it from me and don’t let your wife be the only one doing all the wedding work. I promise it’ll pay off during the honeymoon!
