Men have a pretty easy time when it comes to weddings. They don’t have to make many decisions, then they just turn up on the day and get married. However, if you want to earn some brownie points with your wife to be, there are a few things you should get involved in. Sure, it can be scary, but don’t you want to make this day about you too? Here are some things men should think about when it comes to weddings:
The Guest List
The guest list needs to be a good mix of her family and your family, so make sure you get involved. Although you’re basically ranking people you know in order of importance, it’s something you must get involved in. Make sure you have a say in who is important to you, and help your wife to be through difficult decisions regarding the wedding.
The date can play a big part in many things, including the weather on the day and how much your day costs overall. Make sure you help her with research and big a date you’re both happy with.
The venue will also play a huge part in your big day. It should mean something to you both, and fit into your budget. Go to view a few venues with her and be honest about what you like and don’t like. She’ll really appreciate your input when it comes to something as important as this!
Creating Your Team of Men
This is one of the most fun things you get to do, so enjoy it! Create the team of men you’ll have around you on the day. There’s your best man, and then your best friends as the groomsmen. It might also be a good idea to include any brothers you or her may have.
Help Pick the Music
Whether you’re having a DJ or not, make sure you have a say in the music. The styles you’d both like, and any songs you’d prefer not to be played.
Your Wedding Ring
You probably got really excited when you bought a new TV, but think about it. That TV won’t last forever! Your wedding ring is supposed to last forever, so make sure you have some input and make it a good one!
If you’re lucky, you may get to skip this part. But if your other half insists on writing vows, there’s no way you can get out of it. Just be honest, keep them simple, and stick to a rough guideline. You’ll need to say how much you love her, talk about fidelity, forever, and even being scared of marriage. It’ll make people laugh. Look at it this way: at least you didn’t have to spend ages looking through wedding invitation templates.
Guys, you have so much less to think about than the ladies. The least you can do is put some real thought and consideration into the things in this post! Do so, and you’ll have a great day. Good luck!
