7 Ways To Be A Great Groom

Planning a wedding is fun, tiring, stressful, crazy and wonderful and it also involves a whole lot of details. Make sure the groom is pulling his weight – here are our top 7 ways for grooms to get involved…

Take care of things that you’re directly a part of: Your bride probably has a gazillion things to take care of from contacting vendors and finalizing the venue to picking her dress and bridesmaids. Help her out by handling things that concern you for starters – pick a suit or tuxedo, what your groomsmen will wear and your wedding ring.

Help where you can: While traditionally brides tend to lead on the wedding planning, your help and inputs will be much appreciated. So offer to help and make sure you see it through. Love music? Get cracking on finding a band or if you’re good with numbers, keep on top of the budget.

Plan your wedding registry: If you’ve decided you’re going to have a wedding registry, we’d recommend MyList so spend some time going over what you already have and what might be nice to receive as gifts. Do some research online or spend some time shopping together if you want to go all out.

Show your bride you care: In the middle of all the wedding planning your bride is going to really appreciate little gestures. Surprise her with flowers, plan a quiet meal or maybe book her in for a quick spa visit to show her how much you care.

Work on the honeymoon: This is one aspect of the wedding planning that you could completely take over. If you both love certain kind of destinations, maybe a place with a beach or one that has history and architecture you’re both a fan of, try and do some research on it. Plan it all from flights and hotel to sight-seeing, restaurants and maybe even set up a few things that both of you can do once you get there. Lynne from Travel Counsellors can really help!

Get your vows right: We agree that not everyone can write super mushy or romantic wedding vows but then this is one occasion where you need to step up and show your fiancée how much she means to you. It could be a funny anecdote about you guys meeting or some simple heartfelt words about her.

Here are some quotes to help you in writing your wedding vows.

Be there: There will be plenty of times where your partner will need your inputs from catering and looking at venues to meeting vendors. It may not always be possible to attend each and every meeting but do the best you can and be there for her especially for the big ticket items – it’s your day too so try and enjoy the build up together.
