Hey Groom, get involved in the planning, too!

Hey, Groom, I know that the wedding is all about the bride but…

there are some fun things that will need your input.

Food

Get involved in planning the menu.  You like good food and you want good food at your wedding reception.  Choose some caterers or food trucks for you both to check out! If she won't relent on a sit-down dinner then maybe plan the appetizers, dessert bar or late night snack.

The Men's Attire

Yes, she wants you to look dapper in a suit but let her know that you would like to pick out the style and cut and maybe some fun accessories like suspenders, the tie, cufflinks, tie clips, etc. Bring out your style! I would also recommend men's grooming on your wedding day, making you and your g-men look clean cut and handsome!  Neck and beard trims do wonders!
Music for the reception

A DJ will make or break a party so choose a great one.  The DJ will most likely be a part of the ceremony and reception.  He can make microphones available during the ceremony and make sure you are both heard throughout. A DJ can be a Master of Ceremony, announcing all the activities during your reception and he will keep the party going all night long or at least until the city's noise ordinance takes effect.  You, the groom, can choose the music or types of music to play, please make sure it fits both of your styles.  The music will set the tone for the party.

The Honeymoon

Take over the honeymoon planning, it will be one less thing on her to-do list.  You should know what she likes to do and where her idea vacation spot would be.  Take care of it all, airline tickets, accommodations, excursions, and activities or just plan to stay in the hotel room for the whole trip! 😉 If she likes surprises don't give her details, let her maid of honor pack her bags and keep the destination a secret.
