Question: As a Groom, how can I get my points across to my Bride and her Mother? - Ryan McGill
Answer: Ryan, such a brave question and I'm so pleased to answer it for those that do not always feel comfortable stepping out and letting us know how or what they are thinking.
The truth is though, the best thing you can do is to just be honest and vocal. Your words will be much appreciated because when it comes down to it, this is your day too! There is nothing that your bride and family will want more than to know that your opinion has been heard and reflects in this day also. While it may sometimes seem difficult to get a word in with all the typical chaos of planning a wedding, most brides love it when their groom takes an active role in the process. So, please speak up and be proud to do it!
If you feel that when you try, your points are not addressed or not heard, try speaking to your planner and she may aid in making this easier.
Also, there are many websites which offer helpful tips and advice for Grooms. This trend is somewhat newer but definitely worth checking out when you are a groom and have questions. Some of my favorites are Groom Grove, The Man Registry and Groom's Club.
Good Luck and please feel free to email me if you have any additional questions or concerns.
