You bought the wedding ring, you proposed and she said yes. If you want your bride to continue being happy until your wedding day, your job is not done! And we give you 8 advice on how to be the PERFECT groom!
- Have an opinion
Keep in mind that this is your wedding too. It is not necessary to deal with all the planning details, like the flower arrangements and the bridal bouquet, but you can choose to deal (or at least have an opinion) with some things that you are interested in, like the food, the drinks, the music and your wedding photographer. This way, your bride-to-be will be happy because you are involved in your wedding and you will know some things about your wedding ahead of time!
- Don’t let her get her way
If that pink couch cover with the yellow flowers is not your style, say it! She might not go with the total black cover you prefer, but you can find something you will both like. This way, you will not feel awkward with the pink cover every time your friends come over and your wife will be really happy you showed interest in your home and chose something together.
- Get involved with the wedding list
It might sound boring going to stores and choosing things, but If you don’t go with your bride-to-be, you will probably not get that barbeque set or that projector with the speakers that you always wanted (and that your friends might gather to get it for you).
- “Protect” her
If your mother keeps calling her to ask her about all the wedding details, there is a big chance, sooner or later, you two will get into a fight. So, get between your family and your bride-to-be and let them know that everything concerning your wedding that they want to ask or tell her, goes through you. And of course, you will choose to tell your future bride, only what is really important!
- Give her a break
If she is the one dealing with all the wedding preparations, it is most probable that she is overworked and stressed out. Your “job” (if you can’t help her with the wedding planning) is to keep her relaxed. Cook dinner for her and watch together her favorite movie (and don’t forget to clean up the kitchen afterwards).
- Listen to her
When she starts nagging about her mom, her uncle, her maid of honor, the last thing she wants is to hear you blame them and tell her all the things you don’t like about them. Just listen to her and tell her she is right. When her temper is gone, she will have forgotten why she was upset with them, but she will not forget what you said about them.
- Ask for help
You may have decided to plan your own wedding, but your bride-to-be has hit the wall and is stressed out. Time to hire a professional wedding planner. Because as your wedding day gets closer, the stress will become bigger. And it is much better on your wedding day to be relaxed and have fun than try to solve everything that might go wrong.
- Get emotional
On your wedding day, send your bride-to-be flowers, a little present, or write her a love letter, telling her how you feel about her and what made you want to marry her. During the wedding reception, ask your videographer to record you telling her a love message. Trust us, this will earn you A LOT of extra points when she will see it later!
