Today’s weddings are all about personality. What makes your relationship special? What are the loves, quirks, and values that set you apart from other couples, and how can you work them into your wedding for an unforgettable celebration that’s unique to you? With such an emphasis on getting personal, it’s important that brides also include their grooms in the planning process to let his personality shine through, too.
To start, ask your groom what he’d like to have the most influence on in the planning process. He might want to choose the videographer, the DJ, or pick the song for when the bridal party marches in. While it’s true that many grooms are happy to leave the details to their brides, you don’t know if you don’t ask!
If in doubt, an easy place to start is the food and drinks: Consider serving a bride’s choice and a groom’s choice for dinner. Yours might be grilled salmon and asparagus, his might be a burger with everything on it — but that’s what makes it fun! The same can be said of a bride’s drink and groom’s drink; it’s a chance to show off both of your tastes, rather than just one girly cocktail.
