From time immemorial, the role of planning a wedding has been set aside for women. They run the show and apart from organizing the honeymoon, all the groom needs to do is turn up, looking dapper in his suit. A man that loves his woman, can do more than this. He can play just as big a role as his soon to be bride. It is after all the union of two equal souls.
A man can show his support in a number of ways:
Attend Vendor Meetings
Planning a wedding involves meeting a host of product providers. A lot of deals have to be closed. A supportive groom should attend this meetings with his love. She is just as busy as you are. Go ahead and decide on the cake flavors as a team. Insert your own opinion regarding the color themes and the limo company to be hired. Don’t just wait for price negotiations.
Pick a task
When it comes to wedding planning, expect some degree of hand and footwork. The to-do list is quite long and can be tasking for a single person to execute on their own. Willingly offer to do your fair share of the work. Take charge of the wedding list, or perhaps the venue and entertainment. It may sound daunting but it can be done.
We know the hassle that women put themselves through in order to be wedding-ready. There is no rule book excluding men from the same. You’re allowed to hit the gym and loose the beer gut. You will share the spotlight after all.
Create your own vows
Making promises to each other can be a great mechanism to pull the two of you together. The effect is even twofold when done in front of your loved ones. Take the opportunity to craft some assuring words for your bride. It doesn’t have to be emotional. No lyrics from a song though. She will appreciate the effort.
Be a stress reliever
The greatest way a man can become part of the planning is by offering a shoulder and an ear to his woman. Give her a massage, tell her she’s doing a good job. Be her overall number one motivator.
