Weddings are notoriously organised and overseen by brides and their families, but guess what, groom? You’re involved in this wedding, too. You need to consider that this is your big day as well as hers, and that means that you get a say in what you want to happen on your wedding day. When it comes to the wedding workload, you’ve got a role and it’s not just to show up and say the right name, either. Knowing what to do as a groom isn’t always simple, though, especially if your fiancé is on the bossy side. Don’t panic, though, as we’ve got you covered. Below, you’ll find a list of the most important duties that you have as a groom.
You Need A Best Man.
On your biggest day, you need a friend, relative or colleague to stand beside you and support you. This is the person that will be there for you throughout the whole process, the good and the bad, and this is the person who is going to help you out when things get tough. It’s also the person you’re going to have a laugh with at the suit specialists when it comes to buying one for the wedding. Choose wisely, though, as you want to remember this moment for the rest of your life.
You Need Groomsmen.
The bride has bridesmaids and you will have groomsmen. They’re your band of merry men who are going to attend your bachelor party and give you the best send off into married life you could have. Try to match your groomsmen numbers to her bridesmaids for even numbers!
You Need A Honeymoon.
It’s one of the biggest vacations that you will ever have in your life, and you get to have the privilege of choosing the type of honeymoon that you’ll have. Try to include it in your wedding speech, and until that moment, keep the honeymoon destination a secret from your bride! It’ll make it all the sweeter when you see her face on the day.
You Need Rings.
You picked the engagement ring, so why not go the whole hog and choose the wedding rings, too? You can get the input from the bride, but ideally, the set that you choose should match the engagement ring you once bought. Make a day of it, have lunch and take your future wife to choose the rings that you will exchange with your vows.
You Need A Speech.
The best man and the father of the bride will both have speeches to write, but so will you. It should thank everyone in the room and your bride should be central to your speech. This checklist can help you to understand what to include in your groom speech.
You Need Gifts.
Lastly, you should have gifts or flowers on hand for the parents, and this is for you to sort out. Incorporate gift giving in your speech to make it all the sweeter.
It’s your big day; take your half and make it beautiful!
