No matter how much the groom wants to be involved in wedding planning, he can always use a bit of advice to get him through the process. We’ve tapped some of the best wedding planners out there to share their sage advice, here’s a round-up of tips for grooms:
- “Every groom should know how to tie a bow tie“. – Amy Zaroff, Founder / Creative Director, Amy Zaroff Events+Design
- “If buying a tux or suit, have it in your closet, along with your shirt(s), tie/bow tie, pocket square, belt, shoes, socks & cuff links ONE MONTH prior to your wedding day. If renting, make sure you try on every piece two days before your wedding day.” – Joan Nilsen Beyer, The Wedding Assistant
- “Your groomsmen should reflect your inner circle; choose your best confidants or comrades or those that have and will always have your back. There is no magic number or formula. You may have 2 or 12 groomsmen, and standing up with you on your big day means more to them than you may know” – Rene Kraus, Fete Perfection Weddings and Events
- ” ‘Own’ at least one thing in the process that is totally yours and you can be excited about. Cake, booze, food, music… whatever. Pick something and engage with it!” – Lindsay Landman, Lindsay Landman Events
- “Enjoy yourself and your partner and the ceremony and the party afterward. You did it! Really connect with all of your guests, even if for just a few minutes. It will mean so much to them. Thank those around you who helped make this big day happen — your friends and family and all the service providers. Everyone takes great pride in a wonderful wedding. Let it be known that you noticed.” – Rene Kraus, Fete Perfection Weddings and Events
Hopefully, these tips for grooms will encourage them to be a part of the process and enjoy it at the same time.
