Here are some ways to help get your groom involved in the wedding planning!

In general, brides take most of the wedding planning tasks. However, there’s absolutely no reason in the world why you shouldn’t include your groom in the entire planning process too! If you are looking for ways to do this, take a look at the following tips because they will definitely come in as more than useful.

  • Planning the wedding budget. Traditionally, the parents of the bride and groom pay for the wedding ceremony and reception. However, that doesn’t mean that you and your groom will not have to create a wedding budget! Make sure you include your groom when planning the wedding budget because this way you will know which of the things he doesn’t want to compromise on and which of the wedding-related purchases he would skimp on as well.
  • Taking care of the bar. Of course, you should bring your groom with you when tasting the wedding food and cake as well – but leaving him to take care of the bar section of the reception will be a great idea.
  • Taking care of the musicians/playlist. Have your groom help you research wedding bands and DJs and leave it up to him to create a wedding playlist as well (or do it together). He will most likely enjoy this task!
  • Picking his tuxedo and his groomsmen’s attire too. You can agree with your fiancé on some “ground rules” for his and his groomsmen’s tuxedoes (for instance, including a particular color). However, you should leave it up to him to choose the clothes he will wear on the Big Day and the clothes his best friends will wear too.
  • Negotiating with vendors. If your future husband has great negotiating skills, you can task him to negotiate with the vendors. This way, he will feel great about being actually helpful while doing something he is good at too.
