Believe it or not, wedding planning is not just for the bride.  Most grooms dread wedding planning - even the littlest task is daunting.  However, traditionally, groom's do not have a major role in wedding planning.  Here are a few suggested ways where your groom can get involved in the wedding planning (without having to decide between ivory or cream tablecloths):

  • Select the engagement ring
  • Choose the Groom's wedding party - best man, groomsmen, ushers
  • Choose attire for Groom's wedding party
  • Arranging for lodging for groom's wedding party
  • Selecting a gift for the bride
  • Compiling the groom's part of the guest list and making sre that his parents make their guest list
  • Planning the honeymoon
  • Choosing wedding bands
  • Making transportation arrangements for couple
  • Giving the officiat the fee for conducting the ceremony
  • Buying the marriage license
  • Planning the bachelor party
  • Standing in the receiving line (if there is one)
  • Make a "grooms" toast at the reception or rehearsal dinner
  • Cutting the cake with the bride
  • Dance with the bride, both mothers and the maid/matron of honor
