Can A Cufflinks-Wearing-Groom Be A Wedding Planner, Too?

(Psss…this great post was written by our new friends over at MyWeddingWorkbook.com and Groomasaurus.com – enjoy!)

Cufflinks are one of the many pieces of attire that grooms (and often your brides) have to keep track of prior to your wedding day, and attire is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the details involved in wedding planning. There’s guest lists, budgets and payments, wedding cakes, photographers, invitations and save-the-date cards, DJs and musicians, flowers, decorations, venues … the list seems to go on and on.

In the past, grooms pretty much took a step back and let their brides take over the wedding planning, mostly because the bride had the vision and the passion for being the main wedding planner (and also probably because the groom felt that he didn’t want to step on his fiancee’s toes or get in the way). But now grooms are taking a much more active role in being a co-pilot and assistant wedding planner, and this is refreshing, mainly because a marriage is a partnership, and by teaming up together to plan their wedding, a bride and a groom are committing to doing things as a team.

A great way to collaborate in planning a wedding is to split up duties, especially if you or your fiancee have certain areas that appeal to you. For example, brides are sometimes more design-focused than grooms, so the bride could be in charge of the decor and flowers, whereas guys are often very music and drink focused, so interviewing DJs and negotiating with the venue regarding beverages may be good responsibilities for guys. Whatever the arrangement, by each taking control of certain tasks, you can both team up together to accomplish your goals.

However, when you’re planning, it would be very helpful if you both had a tool that you could use to manage all your details so you both keep everything in the same place. This is where an online wedding planner can help out. This is basically Web-based wedding software that enables you to store and manage all your wedding details so you are always on top of everything. My Wedding Workbook is a great tool to use for this purpose, mainly because it is so comprehensive, easy-to-use and well integrated. Plus, it’s tools are free to use, so there’s really no drawback to signing up and trying it out. (And, they’ve even created event planning software for wedding consultants). Just give this free wedding planner a try, and you and your bride will soon be well on your way to planning the wedding of your dreams.
