Getting married is a wonderful thing. Women have always been the ones planning the wedding day. The fact of the matter is that it can be a lot of work! Planning a wedding is not easy and involves multi-tasking and talking to vendors to make sure the day goes by without a glitch. That is why more and more grooms are being involved in wedding planning.
Whether it is to choose men’s wedding bands or decide on the florist, the wedding is best when it is done by the team of two: the bride and the groom.
Here are some things that will make it possible.
Create a Wedding Email Address
This is one of the first things you should do. This is going to go a long way in making both of you aware of what is happening in regards to the wedding. Communication with vendors with this email is also important so that tasks can be prioritized and it can stay separate from work and personal emails completely.
Another tip is to have a time set every evening where both of you can go over the email every evening. This ensures that no email is put on ‘’Read’’ before both of you have seen it and gone over it,
Have Priorities Set
The next thing you need to do is set priorities. This way you can decide on three priorities with the utmost importance.
This also helps in avoiding disagreements because it is easier to come to a decision.
Both should have Roles
The next thing to remember is to have roles. Each of you should have a particular role you should be playing till the wedding day. You can decide on tasks you want to do together as a couple and those both of you can do on your own. For example, deciding on the wedding cake may be something you would want to do as a couple while taking care of flowers or the food can be something one of you can do.
This makes it easier to find out what all is being done.
Play to the Strengths
A good thing to do is to play to your strengths. For example, if you have a would-be husband who is a foodie and knows about food more than you, giving him the responsibility for food and drinks is a great idea. Similarly, if you love décor, then taking it upon you to decide on the décor is a smart thing.
This way, both of you can play to your strengths.
Much Less Stressful
If you both have jobs and lots of things to do, making sure that both of you are pulling your weight to make sure that the wedding is a wonderful event for all is the best.
Amid all the planning, don’t forget to take the time out as a couple whenever possible. Touching base and being on the same page will help both of you and you can start your married life as equals in every way.
