More and more men are taking the leading role in the initial stages of wedding planning. In 2011, 65% of my initial enquiries were from grooms then eventually the planning fell into the laps of their significant other. For all you men out there reading this post, here are some of my favourite wedding planning tips for grooms:
- Ask your bride-to-be for her advice on your wedding outfit. She will appreciate that you care about her opinion.
- Don’t rush into a store and purchase your outfit. You should get yourself measured for all the items you will wear- enjoy the process and make a day out of it!
- An ivory shirt looks better than a white one. White is harsh and can look like you’re headed to the office. Also, most women wear ivory instead of white so you’re more likely to match your bride
- Have the back of your neck shaved the night before your wedding. Guests and cameras will be around you from all angles so a clean shave is your best bet
Continue to romance your partner. Surprise her with flowers, send chocolates to her work, open champagne while watching a romcom. The romance should never end…
