We get it. Not every groom-to-be is going to be thrilled to start the wedding planning process. That could be because the term “wedding planning” brings to mind visions of Pinterest boards and discussions about beading versus embroidered details. Fortunately, there are lots of ways you can get your fiancé involved in the planning process, that will actually be fun for both of you. In addition to important decisions that you should make as a team, there are some fun activities the two of you should tackle, too!
Enlist His Help with Getting Extra Help!
Another decision you will need to make early on, and preferably together, is whether or not you will hire help with the wedding planning process. A part-time or full-time planner can help to alleviate the pressure on the two of you, and help to ensure the entire planning process goes smoother, and that the wedding day itself is filled with as little stress as possible.
Whether you do decide to hire a planner or not, though, it’s important that the two of you understand who will be responsible for what, when it comes to planning and wedding day responsibilities. If family members and friends will be helping, here’s an important tip; make sure they too know exactly what is expected of them, that way everyone is on the same page and no one is caught off guard by last-minute requirements.
Make Dates Out of the Fun Stuff!
Of course, lots of planning tasks can be fun too! Choosing a wedding cake, a band or DJ, and a caterer are perfect jobs to tackle as a team. Finding a photographer and taking engagement photos is another task perfect for couples, not to mention a great way to build rapport with the photographer before the big day.
Touring potential wedding venues is another great task done together. After all, you want both your tastes and preferences represented in such a big decision. Just be open to each others’ input, and prepared to make compromises along the way.
Turning these necessary tasks into excuses to have a few extra date nights leading up to the wedding is a great way to bond, and to make great use of your time. From hitting local restaurants to sampling bakeries’ treats, and listening to live music, don’t be afraid to get creative when it comes to finding and choosing vendors, together, to make your wedding dreams a reality!
