Wedding planning isn’t just for brides. Grooms can help, too.
There is so much to do when planning the perfect wedding, but there’s no rule that says the bride has to do it all on her own. Believe it or not, the groom is perfectly capable of taking on some wedding-related tasks to take the pressure off of you.
Does he have negotiating skills?
Ask him to work out the prices with vendors, and see what kinds of “extras” he can manage to get included in your packages.
Alternatively, does he have DIY skills?
Goldberg worked with a groom who built a plywood canopy for his ceremony, which was then covered with orange-and-fuchsia organza fabric (and save money). In wedding planning, no task is unimportant, and if you can get his help, so it’s much better and romantic having both involved.
PS: I haven’t included, but here is another task just for him: Keeping his mom under control. Your future MIL might get a little too excited about being involved in the wedding planning. If this happens, her son should be the one to step in and say something. If you can help it, you don’t want to start your marriage off on the wrong foot with your husband’s mom.
I hope you enjoy it.
