Groom Duties: The Ultimate Groom To-Do List
Here our our five “Groom Job Check List” for any groom getting hitched:
Groom Duties #1. Choose a Best Man
Choosing a best man is more important than you might think. Don’t just pick some chump of the street, because this particular task is something that only you can do. Also, you don’t want to feel pressured into your duties. Pick someone that YOU want to pick.
It doesn’t matter what your family, friends, or even fiance want from you, it’s up to you to choose who you think the best choices to stand beside you are. Deep down, you’ve already got a rough idea about who you’d pick if you had to make a decision right now. If you absolutely can’t choose ONE right now, then throw tradition out the window and have TWO, heck, you could even have FIVE,
What we’re saying is that it’s up to you.
Being a best man is a big job. Your best man and ushers will help you work on practically every aspect of your celebration- and this can either take the stress off of your back or make it even worse. They’ll have to make a speech too, so pick someone that you can trust to take the responsibilities seriously.
Groom Duties #2. Choose Your Suit
What does your fiance think about the theme?
Alright, consider this choice carefully.
At this point, envision what your finance prefers color-wise, and start thinking about your shoes, your coat cut, your belt, and even hats, and an entire world of opportunities open up. You want to look your best, but you also want something that’s uniquely you. Decide the satirical options, and confide in your lover. Then make your decision.
Groom Duties #3. Decide What You’re Going to Say
Your speech is a huge part of your responsibilities. Tradition requires you, and their father to give a speech about your wedding. At this point, this integral stage of your wedding is what everyone is waiting for (especially your wife) and you don’t want to disappoint your guests. You’re going to have to put it all together and make your love clear.
Don’t get to silly with it fellas, remember talk isn’t cheap.
There are plenty of tips, quips, and ideas about giving a speech, but the most important part is to give yourself time to develop it, and put an adequate amount of time envisioning the responses that you’re expecting. Be humorous, but be serious keep it on track.
Groom Duties #4. Decide on a Honeymoon
One of the parts that you can look forward to is the honeymoon! All of your hard work pays off at this point, and you can get down to the finer points of your relationship in an impressive, memorable honeymoon that sets the stage for your future years of romance and adult life- live it up! Soak up some rays with your lover on the beach, or a few weeks in a foreign country its up to you! Just make sure you’re incorporating new and exciting things into your vacation to ensure you both have a great time.
Enjoy it while it lasts- life beckons.
Don’t sweat the small stuff, and stay creative. Don’t plan for every single day of your trip, but you also want to have a few solid activities to ensure you aren’t spending too much time cooped up in a room. There should be time for a little bit of everything: exploration, fine dining, extravagance, love, and memories that help define your relationship. Make the most of it and be romantic, classic, and suave.
Groom Duties #5. Buy the Rings
Grooms are typically responsible for purchasing the rings and proposing, which means you’ll have to figure out what your fiance will enjoy the most. Often, the best decision is to go together to pick out the perfect rock, filling in with something clever in the meantime. Remember, your loved one will be wearing it (hopefully) for a long, long time. Don’t cheap out!
It’s a lot of work getting married, but there are a plethora of reasons to enjoy this joyous time. The next steps involve responsibilities, and joining practically every aspect of your life to someone who vows to stand beside you through ALL the thick and thin- and there’s nothing more enjoyable in life. Take the aforementioned steps to heart and open the door to your new life!
