It can be all too easy to think of a wedding as something the bride is responsible for planning. In reality, couples will often find that a division of tasks will make it easier to prepare for your special day. What you may discover is that you have spent more time thinking about what you want from your ceremony, and you may have a clearer vision for what you want. If you want to find ways to include a groom who is less enthused about wedding planning, or just less confident in his planning ability, discuss what aspects are of interest to him. You can also find little touches that help him feel he has some control over what happens. These conversations can help make sure you both feel invested in your wedding plan, whether you intend to take on a DIY approach to your wedding, or if you prefer to purchase an all-inclusive wedding package.
