A perfect wedding involves many months of meticulous planning. You can’t overlook any detail and nothing can be left to chance, what you see, what you hear or what you taste. By the way…did you know that there are some details of your wedding that you can leave in the trusty hands of your future husband?
The wedding plans are generally managed, coordinated and executed by a wedding planner under the close observation of the bride. In all that chaos that includes invitations, rings, flowers, candles, centerpieces, vows, your groom can feel disoriented and somehow…left out. However, there are a few things that your groom could do and would be interested in dealing with while organizing your wedding.
Whether your wedding will be, financially speaking, a traditional one (the groom pays a part, the bride pays another, the parents contribute to something) or modern (only you two are responsible for the costs), your future husband can be involved in the budgeting aspect.
How? Firstly, he can establish a total of admissible expenses (total amount), and assign each aspect of your wedding a sum that can’t be exceeded without making “cuts”.
Secondly, he can request price offers for different services: from transport to menu, to venue, DJ or decorations, after you’ve chosen the theme and style of your wedding, dancers and comedians for entertainment and so on.
And last, but not least, your future husband can temper you when you’ll want different invitations than the ones you initially picked because they aren’t purple enough, or when you’ll want dancers and a string quartet.
Music and fun
When it comes to music and other ways to maintain a fun, cheerful and pleasant atmosphere at your wedding, your future husband should be involved for several reasons.
First, everyone has different tastes when it comes to music, so a mixed playlist could come in handy. Secondly, he knows what kind music his mother likes and which part of the country his bellowed aunt Azalea is from.
Thirdly, it’s possible that he comprehends pyrotechnics better than you and he is able to establish the details of who will handle the fireworks. Regarding other types of entertainment, he knows what his family would like to see and his old friends.
And last, but not least, if he can’t participate in this aspect of your wedding then he can’t do pretty much else, so…
Transportation, for you and your wedding guests on your wedding day, can be excellently organized by your groom. This is one of those aspects of wedding planning in which your future husband will be happily involved. All you have to do is give him the actually confirmed wedding guest list. He will know, or find out how many guests will use their own cars, who will want to drink alcohol and will require transportation and so on.
Also, your groom can handle renting buses or minibusses for your guests and especially for you, depending on the wedding theme: limousine, vintage car, carriage etc. It will take some time to handle the logistics, but this is his domain.
Menu and Drinks
Your groom will be more than happy to help you choose the menu for the wedding since it involves a lot of tasting. And, as men are generally good at choosing food and drinks, this can be a stress-free aspect for you. However, pay attention to you future husband’s culinary tastes. You don’t want to end up serving sausages and fries at your wedding unless you have a rustic theme. And, you should also remind him that you need to have other drinks, besides beer…
Whether he wants to surprise you, or you choose a destination together, your future husband can handle every detail of planning your honeymoon. Given that most men boast of an excellent practical sense, he can keep watch for special offers and compare them, choosing the perfect quality/price ratio for the offered services and plan trips and extra activities. He can also reserve a tour guide, if the honeymoon is in another country, and make a selection of the most interesting sights to visit.
You wedding, as well as your marriage which begins on the day, are cherished life experiences, therefore, you should be both equally involved in planning your wedding.
