When it comes to arranging a wedding, it traditionally all comes down to the bride. Brides often have the final say in all things to do with the ceremony as it is usually seen as their big day. But it’s not just all about them – the groom should get a say in what happens on the day as well. After all, it is their wedding day too!
In fact, giving the groom something to do will take a bit of pressure off the bride’s shoulders, as they won’t be weighed down with all the responsibility. But what exactly should the groom be doing in the run up to the wedding? Here’s a quick to-do list that you could pass on to your partner if you are planning on getting married in the near future.
Buy A Suit
Of course the biggest job that any groom has to do is buy himself a suit. Not only that, though, but he will also be in charge of his best man and groomsmen suits as well. There are lots of places your man could get his wedding suit from, including from the likes of John Henric, so it’s worth him spending the time shopping around so that he finds one that looks great and fits the wedding budget. If he really wants to splash out, he could visit a local tailor for a bespoke suit, but that might be over budget for most couples.
Help You Choose Your Wedding Gift List
One thing that the two of you can do together is think about what you want on your wedding gift list. This will be sent out to all your guests in the run up to your wedding so that everyone has a good idea of what to get you as a present. These gifts are intended for both of you, so it’s really important that you spend time compiling this list together as a couple.
Take Over Some Of The Planning
The bride can sometimes get overwhelmed by all the planning and organization that is required when arranging a wedding. So, it’s only fair that the groom to be steps in at times when it seems to be getting too much and takes over with some of the planning. This will give the bride some breathing space and will ensure she doesn’t get too stressed out by it all.
Organize The Groomsmen
It is also the groom’s responsibility to make sure the best man and groomsmen all know what they are doing on the big day. Ideally, you should put the most responsible one of the lot in charge of the wedding rings – after all, you don’t want to leave them with the friend who is constantly losing his house keys!
Remember A Little Gift
For a nice little surprise that will certainly put a smile on the bride’s face on the morning of her wedding, you should send her a small gift. How about a small bunch of flowers or a sweet little note?
Happy wedding day!
