As a supportive groom, you should do your part and devote adequate attention to this loving occasion. You should strive hard and help your future wife. This would ease her anxiety, and make her happy.
Below are 10 tips you can follow to help your beloved fiancé in the wedding planning process.
1. Help your bride-to-be with her to-do list.
Are there tasks that don’t sound like “for girls only”? If yes, then take note of these details and make your own to-do list. A little help will go a long way. She will definitely appreciate it.
2. Help her manage the wedding budget.
Follow the 80/20 rule. This means 80% of your wedding’s overall cost will come from the 20% of the choices. The wedding date, venue and guest list are the most important. To be able to manage your budget well, you need to know your priorities.
3. Get involved with the wedding registry.
I’m sure you and your fiancé would love gifts that you can use around the house. Do you want a new blender, plates or scented candles? Then, register for wedding gifts wisely. This is your opportunity to get the most useful items.
4. Write your vows sincerely.
You don’t need to have a remarkable writing style like Ernest Hemingway to write your wedding vows. Just write based on how you feel. Make sure that every word you say is unforgettable. Just in case you’re having a hard time expressing your feelings, just remember the first time you met. Reminisce every special moment.
5. Choose the perfect wedding bands.
It’s up to you if you want to surprise your bride-to-be, or you want her to go with you when buying the wedding bands. Do you want to let her choose at the store, or you want to entirely take charge?

Appreciate all of her hard work by handing out simple tokens such as flowers and sweet notes. You can also surprise her with a special dinner or lunch date. These are simple gestures, but these little acts of love will go a long way.
9. Know when to give your opinions.
When it comes to flowers, dresses, decorations and other girly choices, know when to give out your opinions. In some instances, silence may be the best gesture of support.
