6 Wedding Tasks Grooms Will Love
While the majority of wedding planning may be tasks bride’s enjoy more (flowers, dresses, jewelry and color schemes) there are a few that the groom is sure to enjoy. Instead of worrying about every detail, ask the groom to handle these tasks.
Stocking the bar. One sure way to get the groom involved in the wedding planning is to put him in charge of the bar menu. Instead of just the standard liquors, the groom has options when it comes to microbrews, signature drinks and fine wines. This can be a great way to work in your wedding theme as well, particularly if it focuses on a local theme.
The song list. Many grooms have a definite opinion on what songs they want to hear at the wedding reception. Choosing the playlist for the wedding reception is a great way for groom’s to get involved. Work with your wedding DJ to plan the music for the wedding reception you both want.
Wedding party attire. While brides spend countless hours dreaming of, looking for and trying on dresses, grooms used to go to the store and rent the standard black tux. Today’s grooms have many more options in color, cut and style; some even choosing a great suit instead of rented threads. The style options go beyond suiting to accessories too; statement socks, custom cuff links and themed undershirts have become quite popular.
Wedding reception fun. When grooms take the lead in planning some wedding reception fun, you are sure to get a few surprises. Shutterbooths, cigar rolling stations, and cocktail entertainers top wedding reception trends.
Wedding images. While we see lots of inspiration images for brides, it’s likely that the groom has an idea of how he’d like to look in wedding day images too. Discuss poses that he’s comfortable with (and not) with your wedding photographer and videographer as you form the plan for your wedding photos and wedding video.
Wedding day transportation. If a wedding day is built on dreams, a Ferrari can shift it into overdrive. When looking for wedding day transportation, a muscle car, Hummer limo or a high-performance sports car are at the top of a groom’s wish list. Consider self driving the car of his dreams on your wedding day.
Absolute musts. Even if the groom is comfortable with the bride doing most of the planning, it is important that he be involved with setting the budget, picking the venue, choosing a date and creating the guest list. The choice between roses and peonies might not be that important to the groom, but the budget should be. The way you plan your wedding together will begin teaching you how to work on future projects too. Define some parameters that you both agree on and then let the planning begin!
