How to Get Your Fiance Involved with the Wedding Planning

Posted on

 

Let’s be honest; the man of your dreams probably did not grow up fantasizing about his wedding day since he was a little boy.  So don’t be surprised when his answer to the vast majority of your planning questions is, “Whatever you want, Sweetheart.”  Here are a few fail-safe ways to get your man involved in the planning.

1.) Open his mind. The truth is, your guy probably has no idea what it even takes to plan a wedding. He doesn’t understand why you’re freaking out because to him, all you really have to do is show up wearing what you want, make sure there are enough chairs for people, eat some cake and call it a night. Help show him what you’re going through by making a calendar with all of your deadlines marked. This way, he will be able to see, right in front of him what all needs done. Once he sees everything that needs to be done he may be much more apt to help.

2.) Give him tasks he’d be interested in. Yes, this means you’ll probably be on your own when it comes to deciding on the font to use for your invitations, but other things, like choosing the DJ, the flavor of your cake, sampling caters menus, or researching honeymoon destinations are probably more up his alley.

3.) Back off. When you do give him a task, its important that you’re not looking over his shoulder every second attempting to micro-manage any progress. If you want him to research honeymoon spots than let him do it. Don’t constantly ask him, “Did you check the cost of snorkeling in Jamaica? Are there sharks in Jamaica? You know I hate sharks…” Yes. He knows you hate sharks. Back off and let him do the job you gave him.

4.) Narrow down the options and respect his opinion. Naturally, there are going to be some things that you care about more than he does. As mentioned earlier, he probably isn’t going to lose any sleep over the wedding invitations, but you might. So narrow down your options to 3 or 4 you’d be happy with and let him make the final decision. He’ll feel involved and you won’t have to worry about sweating over the difference between white and eggshell white.

5.) Give him the busy work. As harsh as it sounds, a guy often wants to help but would rather leave the creative stuff up to you. This is the, “Just tell me what to do” approach that makes things easier on everyone. Have him balance the budget, make payments to vendors, pick up materials and reserve the reception space. He can do all of these tasks on his own, and you can focus on mastering that perfect napkin fold you saw in a bridal magazine 3 weeks ago or finding the perfect shoes for your bridal gown.

Prom Dress Shopping

Yes it is Prom Time and one of the top prom shops in Maryland has some exciting news to share. Lily’s Bridal has over 900 dresses in stock and we have the largest selection of exclusive prom dresses in Maryland. We are the only prom shop in Maryland to bring you are own exclusive line of prom dresses, Lily Mae. Our Lily Mae collection is amazing and we are very proud to bring you a line designed by Lily’s Bridal. Lily Mae cannot be found in any other prom shop in Maryland.

What does this mean to the prom girls in Maryland? The biggest benefit is that you won’t find someone else wearing your prom dress. We register all prom dresses purchased from Lily’s Bridal to each school. We will not sell the same dress in the same color to the same prom. Other prom shops in Maryland may register their dresses purchased but you still risk someone else being in the same dress because those dresses are sold at other stores and online. So your chance is very high that someone else will have your prom dress.

Our exclusive line is what makes Lily’s Bridal different than all the other prom shops in Maryland. With our exclusive prom line you won’t have to worry about being in the same dress as someone else.

As you venture out to find your prom we would like to offer you our best advice when shopping for your dress at Prom shops in Maryland.

1.  Search prom magazines or online to find styles you like.

2.  Get a clear picture of what you would like to wear for you prom.

3.  Try on a variety of styles. Be open minded to dresses offered to you by Prom Stylists.

4.  Shop early for the best selection.

5.  When you find your dress buy it and take it with you. If you wait too long someone else will purchase your dress.

6.  If you can’t purchase right away, see if there is any type of hold, so you won’t lose your dress.

Stay Beautiful!
