When it comes to wedding planning, we as men usually pass the proverbial remote control to our wonderful ladies, but let’s be real—as a man we want our wedding day to be awesome! However, you shouldn’t expect your SO to want to be a part of it all every minute of every day. Most men have been to a wedding or two in their day, but most of us have NO IDEA how much planning is really involved. Here are a few things that Miss Sugar Cube did that really got me hooked into planning our day, along with a tip or two on how to keep him involved.
First, she makes it easy. Miss Sugar Cube knows me very well and knew that too much detail would send my head spinning, and not like it did the first time we kissed. So one of the very first things we did was sit down with a notepad and pen, and write out a list of everything that needed to be done in chronological order, under the months the tasks needed to be completed by, from last August until this November. This helped to break down what needed to be done now and what could wait. She also didn’t overwhelm me with a million choices, and she was ALWAYS open to my opinions and thoughts. Like whether we wanted an indoor or outdoor wedding. Together we would come to an agreement, and then, with a lot of the details, she would come to me and we would choose what we liked. Tip: Everyone loves crossing things off a list, so Miss Sugar Cube printed the list and made it so I could cross things off as we go.
