Tips For Any Groom To Know What’s Happening With Your Wedding Plans
Ah you proposed and better yet, she said yes. Now comes the fun part, the part which contributes to multibillion dollar industry- planning the wedding. Now you might have heard all the hype surrounding the actual planning of it and how people get carries away and what not but really what you see on TV or in the movies are mostly exaggerations (yes, even the reality shows). In fact, there is a very good chance that you might have fun planning your wedding but if you simply want to marry the stunning creature you already asked to spend the rest of your life with and not have to plan the whole affair, then we have some good advice for you. Today we will be giving you a few cheat codes on what you need to actually pay attention to during the planning.
Firstly, there are 3 things you must contribute to in the planning, that is the venue, the guest list and the date. When it comes to the date, make sure to pick one which has the least amount of major events happening. Avoid major holidays and sporting events, and of course try to avoid weekday weddings. When it comes to the guest list, you need to be practical about it, when you make the list, it will become endless so you need to establish the trimmings early on, such as no children or dates. Then simply getting rid of the excess family members is all that is left. When selecting a venue, you need to be practical yet whimsical, so this means that while your bride sticks to her dream wedding and imagines herself walking down the aisle with the bridal bouquets, you need to be practical. Find out their policies on outside catering and supplying your own bar. Get to know what services they offer and what you will have to supply on your own. The better informed you are the easier it will be to make a choice of flowers.
Now since the major planning is done, there are a few other things that only you can handle. While you may not be able to lend a helpful opinion about the unique bridal bouquets, you definitely will know who you will want as your groomsmen. While tradition does not say that you need to have equal numbers, you might want to check in with your fiancée before finalising the list. Also remember that out of the finalists, you have to pick a best man as well. Usually when the word best man is said, the mind naturally goes to stag night but what you should also remember is that they have to give a speech at the reception in front of all your friends and family. So keep that in the forefront when making your decision.
One very important piece of advice is, take care of the ring. Traditionally, it’s the responsibility of the groom to take care of the ring. Now you might choose it together and have it sized but after that, it is your responsibility to make sure the rings go from the jewellers, to your best man or ring bearer and on to your wife’s hand. Messing it up will not be a great way to start off wedded life. So if you plan on walking down the aisle any time soon, you might want to keep these titbits in mind.
