As a man who’s getting ready for his big day, there’s doubtlessly going to be some ‘pressure’ for you to bring some inspiration for the wedding to the table.
Gentlemen, it’s a tale as old as time.
You meet a woman. You fall for her. You ask her out. One thing leads to another—and before you know it, you’re down on your knee asking for her hand.
She says yes.
You set a date.
Then, not two months later, she’s asking you all kinds of very pointed questions.
She’s asking you things like…
- What do you think of these flowers?
- What do you think the theme of the wedding should be?
- Do you think the bridesmaids should have matching dresses?
And guess what?
If you’re like most men, you may tend to go blank on some of these questions.
Hey—guys are simple.
You love this woman, and you want to marry her! And if you’re being honest, you probably don’t feel like all of the details need to be perfect in order to make your ‘special day’ a dream come true.
But we’re going to let you in on a little secret.
She wants you to be excited about planning the wedding too!
Therefore, it’s always in your best interest to jump into the process with some vitality, energy, and gusto.
This is, after all, the big day the two of you have been looking forward to.
This is the time to show her that you’re in love with being in love with her.
And part of that process means that she’s going to want you to have some awesome, exciting spring wedding ideas of your own to bring to the planning table (even if those ideas eventually get vetoed by the all-powerful bride banhammer).
