Do you need some help planning the wedding? Do you want to keep the groom occupied? Do you want to get the groom involved? Or are you the groom and want an idea of what to plan and how to help? Here are some ideas of ‘Jobs for the Boys’ to keep you going.
- Choose your best man and ushers. Do this early on to help plan your budget and guest list and it also means you can get them involved in some of the planning.
- Research honeymoon destinations and get some quotes. Then you will be able to sit down with your bride to be and go through everything together to plan your dream honeymoon.
- Look into different types of transport. You may need transport for yourself, the best man and the groomsmen, the bride and her father, the bridesmaids, mother of the bride and maybe even guests. Get some options and quotes together and work out what you need.
- Go shopping for suits. Make a decision on whether you are going to hire or buy the suits. If your hiring, get a date for when all the boys can get together so you can book and appointment to try on and be measured.
- Buy gifts for your best man and groomsmen and don’t forget to get something for your new wife!
- Write your speech in plenty of time and make sure the best man has done his…..keep them short and sweet with some humour but remember not to overstep the mark!
- Order currency and travellers cheques for your honeymoon…..if your leaving the UK!
- Book in for your haircut. Make an appointment in advance so you don’t end up running around at the last-minute. You may also want to consider booking a hot shave as a treat with your groomsmen on the morning of the wedding.
- Buy your wedding ring. This may be something you want to do together, but you can start having a look online and getting some prices and style ideas.
- Plan a stag do! Definitely a job for the boys……..I’m sure you wouldn’t forget this one!
- Pack for the honeymoon…..remember to leave plenty of space for the brides stuff!
Are you getting the groom to plan anything else other than what I’ve mentioned above? Are you the groom and taking charge of most of the planning? I’d love to hear all about it. Leave me a comment or drop me an email. You may also want to read my blog about classic mistakes and how to avoid them!
