Though we have been seeing more participation from the groom in the wedding planning process, particularly in the past few years, we totally understand that it is not really every boy’s dream to grow up and plan their dream wedding. But as any groom will tell you, you can’t exactly cross your arms and refuse to contribute because that will really upset your bride. Here’s the thing: Most brides don’t really need your help. They just want to know that they are not alone in this. So if you’re a groom-to-be, here is a list of things you can do to contribute:
#01 Go venue scouting with your bride-to-be.
#02 Get the groom’s side of the guest list ready.
#03 Help your parents to finalise their guest list.
#04 Defend your fiancée when your parents disagree with her about the wedding.
#05 Source the right sound equipment.
#06 Select the wine and alcohol.
#07 Find out what the bridesmaids are wearing, and bring your groomsmen shopping. Do not wait until the last minute!
#08 Come up with some honeymoon options.
#09 Suggest bridal car options.
#10 Compile your childhood photos (if needed) for the wedding day.
#11 Make sure your parents and grandparents have the right attire for the wedding. The mother of the groom should not wear the same colour as the bride.
