We get it. Most guys don’t care a lot about what kind of tablecloths are at their wedding reception, or whether the bridesmaids wear peach or coral dresses. They may not even know that those are two different shades. But, that doesn’t mean that your fiancé doesn’t want to be involved in wedding planning. After all, this is a day about the two of you starting a new chapter in life together. He should be reflected in the decisions that are made regarding your wedding, and certainly feel like his voice is heard throughout the planning process. So, with that in mind, here are a few fun ways to get your fiancé a bit more excited about and involved in the wedding planning process!
What Does He Care Most About?
First, take a look at your fiance’s biggest interests and passions. Chances are these can be good gateways into the planning process. For instance, if he loves music, put him in charge of picking the wedding band or DJ. Is he a self-described foodie? Ask him to narrow down catering choices. If he has always been a film lover, ask him to research the possible videographers in your area. Not only can this save you a lot of time and stress, but it’s also a fun way to get him involved in the planning.
Make It Fun, as a Couple
Of course, there is also a lot to be said for tackling wedding planning tasks, together, as a team. Sure, he might not have hard opinions about calligraphy styles for invites or whether roses or ranunculas will be best in your bouquet. But there are plenty of tasks perfect for tackling as a team!
Cake testing immediately comes to mind, for instance, and creating signature cocktails. Honeymoon planning is also an ideal task to tackle together. Choosing the music that will play at the ceremony, and practicing your reception first dance are other great ways to stay connected as a couple, and to relieve stress during the busy planning process.
