So, we know that a wedding is often times a lot more stressful for a bride because she wants everything to be perfect. It's often the groom that is laid back and nonchalant about the whole event. But, that doesn't mean that we should forget about the groom and just concentrate 100 percent on what the bride "should know" and do in order to be prepared for her wedding! A bride may not be willing to let her groom take control of certain details, but it will be an enormous help if they let go of the reigns and let the groom take care of, well, himself. Now, hand over the computer to your soon to be husband and remove some things off your wedding to-do list.
When I was planning my wedding it was really hard to let Joe take control of some of our wedding details, but when I did, it was such a relief and it really did make me feel less stressed out and more like I could just relax and have some things taken care of by my future spouse. So, if you're not sure if you should step in or are scared your bride will shoot down all your ideas, I would truly suggest at least trying. She'll love you even more for it.
Whether you are a laid back groom, a groom that doesn't want to be involved in wedding planning at all (but should be at least a teensy bit) or a groom that is truly interested in helping but can't find a way to do so, read on my friends! There are many great websites that offer resources just for grooms that are a great place to start. Like...
