1.The Groom’s Attire – I’ve never met a groom that didn’t care about their wedding day attire. They want to look good too ladies. Down to the watch they wear on their wedding day is important to complete their wedding day drip.
TIP: GIVE YOUR GROOM SPACE TO SHOW HIS STYLE AND FLEX IS SWAG. GIVE GUIDANCE BUT LET A BROTHER LIVE.
2. Food and Drinks – The way to man’s heart is through his stomach and that doesn’t change on your wedding day. The groom always cares about how good the food will be and will the bar be top-shelf ( if they drink) or if the bar has their favorite drink of choice.
Tip: Be sure your groom is at the tasting meetings so they can be involved with the final menu for your wedding. Give them a chance to make their request heard.
3.The Party – Having a good time is on top of their mind. They don’t want their wedding to be boring and they don’t want their friends and family to be bored either.
Tip: Let your groom chose the DJ for your wedding or be very involved in the decision making.
4.The Look – Grooms don’t typically care about which flowers you chose or the type of linens but they do care about the overall look. Grooms want to look around and be wowed and they want to show off, let’s be honest. Every man loves bragging rights.
Tip: Your groom may have one request that’s important to them for the wedding design so let their request be heard and try to include it within the wedding day design
5.The Budget – No matter how involved or uninvolved a groom is, he wants to know how much his wedding is going to cost. All grooms are keeping track of the cost, trust me. Even if they are not paying for the wedding, they want to know how much.
Tip: Be honest. Your groom needs to know the truth about the cost. Through the years, the grooms I had the pleasure to work with are the reason the budget increases. They need to know how their requests affect the wedding budget.
Your groom may not want to flip through Instagram with you or add to your Pinterest board but he does want to be heard when you are planning your wedding. I know, it’s all about the bride but you kinda need him there. Involve your fiance in the things he cares about most to let him know you care about his contribution to the wedding and not just the financial part. We want to start your marriage in a happy place, not a resentful one. And to all my grooms out there, it’s your day too. I’m here for you Bro!
