Your wedding day is ultimately about both of you, so it goes without saying, you should both be involved in the planning process. More often than not, the bride will take the lead when it comes to wedding planning, but today we’re talking all about how you can make sure your groom is a part of the process. We suggest focusing on his natural strengths and what he enjoys doing. Whether he’s a financial expert or a serious foodie, take a look at our favourite ways to make sure your grooms offering a helping hand…
Groom Wedding Planning Guide: DIY
Is your groom-to-be a dab hand when it comes to DIY? Then use this to your advantage for your wedding details and decorations. It also means your wedding décor will be truly personal and unique to you both, as your hubby created it! From statement ceremony backdrops, rustic cocktail bars or stylish signage, get your groom’s creative side going!
Groom Wedding Planning Guide: Spreadsheets
If your soon-to-be husband is talented when it comes to spreadsheets, let him take charge of the budget, supplier tracking and even the seating plan. Set your budget before you start planning your wedding day and input all of the deposits and costs onto your spreadsheet, so that he can keep an eye on how much is being spent and who needs to be paid! This is a super way to keep your wedding planning a stress-free zone.
Groom Wedding Planning Guide: Food & Drink
Food and drink is the most popular option when it comes to getting the groom involved in the planning process, and we’re sure he’d take charge of this area with enthusiasm! Let his inner-foodie explore new ideas and concepts for your wedding food and drink. Consider pizza buffets, prosecco vans and outdoor food trucks – the options are endless and we’re sure your groom can find a delicious option for your big day!
Groom Wedding Planning Guide: The Logistics
The logistical side of wedding planning can be incredibly time-consuming but it’s one that is made for the ultra-organised groom! Get him to take care of every logistical aspect, including transport, supplier sourcing and managing contracts. It’s not the most exciting part of wedding planning, but it’s one that needs to be covered!
Groom Wedding Planning Guide: Honeymoon
We’re sure your groom-to-be would love to plan the honeymoon of your dreams and it might be fun for him to plan it as a surprise for you! We suggest agreeing on whether you want it to be relaxed and luxurious or adventurous and exciting. Planning a honeymoon can be just as stressful and time-consuming as planning a wedding and it’ll take a lot of organising.
