All the details that go into planning a wedding can be surprising to the groom. Some grooms have trouble getting into wedding planning because they are not really concerned with some of the details such as the colors, décor, etc. They are usually just more excited for the actually day and seeing friends and family. There are a few details that are worth caring about that don’t immediately come to mind.
Coordinate with your caterer to have food put into take out boxes for your bride and yourself to enjoy after the wedding
Chances are that you and your bride will be talking, dancing and moving about the entirety of the wedding. Many forget to eat! Talk to your caterer or day of coordinator and have a portion of the appetizers and the entrée selections put into take out boxes for you both to enjoy once the event has ended. Take the time to enjoy the food that you ordered and talk about the happenings of the day and night together. This is such a small detail but is most definitely worth caring about!
Consider having a shuttle service for all guests for after the reception
Having a shuttle for guests for after the event are great for a few reasons. Some guests may have traveled from out of town and have no idea where they are. Giving them the shuttle option takes the worry away for these guests to be able to find their way back to the hotel or where ever their accommodations are. Another very important reason to have a shuttle is to take the chance of someone driving after having too many cocktails. Weddings for the most part have a bar and dancing. People are celebrating the beginning of your marriage! Sometimes they forget they need to go home afterwards. The shuttle is one of the safest options to get them there!
Consider the time of year when choosing your honeymoon destination
It is very important to think about the time of year you plan to travel on your honeymoon. When you decide on your wedding date you can consider the weather at the destination you would most like to visit. Another popular option is to have a delayed honeymoon. This would ensure that you get to go to the top choice destination and not have to worry about the weather. Research the places you would like to visit and make note of their weather, rainfall and if it is their high tourist season.
Attending to these small details really adds something special to your wedding day and will not go unnoticed. Your bride will be thanking you as well as your guests for thinking of them. Thinking ahead of the weather of your intended honeymoon spot will also help to ensure you not only enjoy your honeymoon but it will hopefully exceed your expectations. While planning your wedding, you will find there are many details involved, but as the groom, there are definitely a few details worth caring about.
