Brides Want Grooms to Be More Involved in Planning the Wedding!

The groom-to-be won’t care about things you thought he would

From planning the menu (shrug) to picking the music (yawn), your guy’s uninterested reactions even to the “fun stuff” might catch you off guard and bum you out. After all, these are the things you were sure he’d enjoy – so what will this mean for all the not-so-fun details?

ReluctantGroomSolution: Ask him what he wants to do and then listen. He may not be as disinterested as he’s acting. It’s possible that you’ve overridden his opinions one too many times and his pride is hurting. Of course, he may just have no interest in wedding planning at all.

Can you make peace with it, temper your expectations and give him a few to-dos? Or can you live with him just handling the honeymoon and the music? Remember, you’re marrying this guy. He needs to be a good husband – not a good wedding planner.

The groom-to-be will care about things you never dreamed he would

Whether it’s the color of paper stock for the invites or a preference for a certain species of peony, your man will give you at least one case of the what-the-what’s by expressing strong feelings about something totally unexpected and out of character. Even cooler? His new interest might be a shock to him too!

Solution: As the saying goes, if it ain’t broke…. Why not raise a glass to a lifetime of more quirky little surprises from your man? That said, if he’s venturing into groomzilla territory (it happens), divvy up the decision-making tasks so you can each be master of your own domains.
