When it comes to the wedding day, it can seem like the bride has all the control. That’s not the case. Even if she wants to take control of everything, you deserve a say as after all it’s your wedding too! However, tread carefully. Here are the top four life-saving tips for your wedding day planning.
Don’t Just Agree
It’s easy to fall into the trap of saying “sure, that sounds great.” Chances are you haven’t really heard her or you just want to placate her. Don’t let yourself fall into this. She will want to hear your real input and see that you are just as enthusiastic about every detail as she is. If you think something sounds out there, ask her to go through the idea more. Don’t let her throw big decisions at you while you’re watching the game, why not suggest to go for a drink and planning chat at certain intervals through the wedding planning. This way you have each others full attention and you can really listen to her properly.
Choose a Good Ring
Spend time on the wedding ring shopping. The last thing you want is a thin, cheap ring that will last a year at the most. You don’t want it to turn her finger green! Save up and spend time looking around for the perfect option that goes with her engagement ring. This is something you can take her with you for, but you may want another opinion from yours or her mother.
Be Honest With Your Vows
If you’ve both agreed to write your own vows, she’s expecting you to do this. It can be tricky, but doesn’t have to leave you in a sweat. Just be honest. Think about what makes you really love her, and why you want to marry her. Speak from the heart, but keep your sentences short. Once she hears these heartfelt words she will be overjoyed with what you have created.
Do a Speech that Suits You
The groom’s speech is a tradition, but not all men are comfortable with public speaking. If that’s you, find a way that helps you calm your nerves and create a speech that suits your personality. People want to see the real you up there. This could be something as simple as creating a video of your time together, a story of when you first met, or how you have waited for her to say YES.
Follow the above tips and you will have everything in order for your big day, and you’ll have no need to worry about bridezilla attacking.
