A Groom's Guide to Wedding Planning

By Todd Haness

When it comes to weddings, the focus is usually on the bride. Everyone thinks of it as her special day, that event she's been looking forward to since she was a child and the time when she'll be the center of attention as she embarks on a new life. But what about the groom? It's his day too, and one that he should plan just as carefully as the bride. Ideally it will be a once-in-a-lifetime occasion for both bride and groom, so they should share the planning and the enjoyment of that magical day equally!

Future grooms, follow these steps as you prepare for your wedding to make it a truly special occasion:

1. Select the Groomsmen

Choosing the groomsmen is an important task and should be done at least a year prior to the wedding. (Plan to have one usher for every fifty guests.) Once you've settled on who the groomsmen will be, choose their outfits. Later you will also want to buy gifts for the men in your wedding party. These could include cuff links, a money clip, a flask, or another gift that will commemorate the occasion with a touch of class.

2. Make your Guest List

You and your bride will put together separate guest lists, so think about who you want to invite. Be sure to consider family, friends, and co-workers, and consult with close relatives to confirm that you haven't left anyone out.

3. Reserve the Wedding Location

Don't hesitate to take the initiative in finding possible sites for the ceremony and/or the reception. Your fiancee will appreciate your efforts since this can be an overwhelming, time-consuming task! Discuss with her what your budget and style are and start searching. The sooner you find the right place and reserve, the more likely you are to get the date you want.

4. Plan the Honeymoon

Make your bride happy by researching honeymoon destinations and presenting her with some detailed itineraries of possible trips. She'll know she's picked a winner if you do your honeymoon homework and come prepared with good travel ideas!

5. Order your Wedding Bands

Don't leave this until the last minute. Go with your bride to pick them out and get fitted so that you have them safe in hand in time for the wedding. Also, leave some time between the time you receive them and the wedding day in case you need a last-minute adjustment. If the jeweler gets the sizing wrong you'll need time to fix it.

6. Get your Marriage License

Depending on where you live this can be a lengthy process that will include blood tests and possibly other medical tests. Begin researching early to determine exactly what is required in your state and how long you should expect the process to take.

So remember, your wedding day isn't just for her - it's YOUR special day too! Make it an occasion you'll always cherish by planning ahead and following these simple steps.
