Yes w e all know that the wedding is the ladies big day. OK Down with that...But the men need to know a thing or two about what to do.You bought the ring,dropped to your knee and popped the question, and now you get to kick back until your wedding day rolls around, right? Well, that's one option, but the best way to keep her happy -- and you out of the doghouse -- is to get involved. Here are Peter Bruce Photos top 5 tips for being the best groom.
1. Have an Opinion.Say your 2 cents
This is your wedding too, so get in on the planning. Pick a few things that interest you like the music or wine . You don't have to wax poetic on the difference between lilies and daisies for the bridesmaid bouquets, but give your opinion on the major planning points; it'll let your fiance know she's not in this alone. And wouldn't it be nice to know a little something about your wedding before you attend it?
If she's doing the majority of the planning, she's probably bordering on wedding overload.
2. Relish Your Wedding Registry,Make it fun
It may seem like a tedious task, but think about it: You get to wander around a store, picking things you want that someone most likely will buy you -- you can’t beat that. Better yet, it’s now common to shop beyond the kitchen department. Consider home electronics, power tools, and camping gear. Can't justify shelling out for a plasma screen yourself? Throw it on your wedding reg , and a group of friends might buy it for you!
3. Don't Be a Pushover stand your ground
She wants to register for a yellow comforter with little yellow flowers, and you don't want to have to stash your bedspread in the closet every time your friends come over. See if you can meet her halfway: Tell her the floral patterns are a bit much, but you're fine with yellow, maybe in another style. You'll make her happy and salvage your manhood.
4. Give Her a Break,she is under stress
If she's doing most of the planning for your wedding, she's probably bordering on wedding overload. You need to make sure she doesn't have an ulcer (or a grudge!) by the time she walks down the aisle. Give her a night to relax and cook her dinner, do the dishes, rent her favorite movie (yes, even a chick flick), and remind her why wedding planning is worth the stress.
5. Be a Buffer the go to man
If your mom is calling your fiance every hour to talk about the wedding, you run the risk of major family conflict, with you stuck in the middle. Your mission: Keep the peace. Call your mom and let her know that while you appreciate her interest and excitement, it's your wedding and she needs to give you two some planning space. Take responsibility for communicating with your family so that you can filter out petty worries from legitimate concerns.
