The wedding day is one of the most important days in a couple’s life. It’s the day they commit to each other for the rest of their lives. While there are many things that the bride needs to worry about, there are also some things that the groom needs to focus on. This blog post will discuss five responsibilities that fall on the groom’s shoulders.
1. Pick His Wedding Party
The first thing the groom is responsible for is picking his wedding party. He must decide who will stand by his side on the big day. The groom may choose his brothers, friends, or even cousins as his groomsmen. We are event seeing a big trend in “Bridesmen” and “Groomsmen”. It is important to pick people he knows will be there for him on his big day and who he can trust to help with wedding planning. He should also choose based on reliability, as he will need a sounding board when things get tough and wedding planning gets stressful. Also, agreeing to being in a bridal party comes with time and financial commitments.
2. Manage His Groomsmen
The groom is responsible for ensuring his groomsmen are on task and ready to go on the big day. This includes making sure they have their suits, know what time to be ready, and have transportation to the ceremony and reception. The groom is also responsible for ensuring his groomsmen behave appropriately on the big day. This means keeping them from getting too drunk, making sure they are respecting the bride and her family, and making sure they are not causing any problems. It is important to timely as well.
3. Decide On His Attire
The groom is responsible for choosing his own outfit for the wedding. This includes shopping for suits or tuxedos, shoes, and accessories. He should consult with the bride on what she envisions him wearing and take her opinion into consideration. However, it is up to the groom to make sure he looks good on the big day. He should also schedule a wedding day fitting with his tailor at least two weeks before the big day to ensure the ensemble is perfect.
4. Plan The Honeymoon
While the bride may have some input, it is ultimately the groom’s responsibility to plan and pay for the honeymoon. This includes booking airfare and hotels, as well as arranging any other activities for the trip. The groom should also get a good travel insurance policy to protect against any unforeseen problems. The honeymoon is often seen as the most important part after the wedding, so the groom must take care of everything. However, with a little planning and effort, the groom can ensure that the honeymoon is a truly magical experience for both himself and his new wife. Hiring a travel agent can come in handy here.
5. Be There For The Bride
One of the most important responsibilities of the groom is to be there for the bride. This means being supportive during wedding planning, understanding when things go wrong, and being a shoulder to cry on if necessary. It also means being present for all the planning and on the big day itself and ensuring that the bride is happy and comfortable. This can be a lot of pressure, but it’s important to remember that the groom is the one person the bride has chosen to support her for the rest of her life. So he must be present for it all.
