Just The Two Of Us: Important Wedding Decisions You Both Need To Be Involved In
After you have gotten engaged, it’s easy for your husband to be to be pushed to the backseat. After all, friends and family will swarm in to try to help you plan your big day. They are probably just as excited as you about the wedding! But it’s so important that you remember the day is actually about you and your husband. Therefore, you need to involve him as much as you can. In fact, here are some important wedding decisions you both need to be involved in!
Deciding on a venue
While you might have a dream venue in mind, you need to also have some input from your other half. After all, there might be somewhere your other half has their heart set on. And you need to listen to his ideas as it’s as much his day as yours! In fact, before you go to look around places, you should both write a list of your priorities for the venue. For example, you might want amazing views, while your other half might be looking for somewhere with character. Once you have a list, you can then book a few places and see if there is somewhere you both like for the wedding. Or at least somewhere that ticks most of the boxes. Hopefully, you can compromise and find somewhere that suits you both!
Choosing the rings
You also need to both be part of the process when it comes to choosing rings. After all, you are both going to have to wear these for many years. Your beau might have already picked you an engagement ring. But if not, you will need to look at engagement rings first before you do anything else. Remember to choose something that you will love for years to come. And once you have your engagement ring, you can start hunting down wedding rings. You need to both go together to do this as it’s a good idea to pick out ones in a similar material. For example, you might want to both go for white gold or silver as it will look smashing in the pictures. Therefore, spend a day going ring shopping to ensure you both get a choice when it comes to wedding rings!
Writing the seating plan
Writing the seating plan is one of the trickiest jobs when it comes to wedding planning. After all, it’s so easy for your mom and mother in law to try to get involved with their opinions. And your other half’s own views might get put on the backburner. Therefore, you should make sure that it becomes something you both just do on your own. That way, you both get the final say on who sits where on the table! And then there won’t be any arguments with your families if you both worked on it on your own. And when you are doing the seating plan, try to not worry too much about where everyone is sitting. At the end of the day, it’s only two hours so your relatives and friends can manage this time!
A lot of brides to be are choosing the groom’s attire for the wedding day. But ultimately he should be choosing what he wears on the wedding day. You can give him some ideas of groom attire, but let him make the final decision!
