I write about you Grooms through passed experience, As a Wedding Florist,Event Decorator and planner, I find myself often working with the Brides more than the Grooms. However, in the past few years, more and more Grooms are rolling up their sleeves and getting involved in every aspect of the wedding.
This past weekend, more so than any other time. I worked with all the Grooms, more than the brides. We had so much fun in the planning stages and on the big day!! They remained calm and fucused, and seem to enjoy seeing it all come together and being involved.
Some funny highlights have made me giggle behind the scenes, and made every wedding this past weekend a joy to work on. Seeing how they love their brides to be, They wanted to help her, and take care of her, and take some of the stress and pressure away.

I would like to raise a glass to our loved & cherished hubbies - YOU GROOMS TO BE.
DID YOU EVER JUST SHOW UP?
The groom has to do a lot more than just show up, and get married these days! But with my experience your roles far exceed what is expected from this advice.. But this may help you for now.
There are a number of traditional Groom duties which you generally are your responsibility for!!
1. Choose your outfit
2. Choose the best man and ushers
3. Write a speech
4. Plan the honeymoon
5. Buy the wedding rings
6. Buy gifts
Happy Planning to all you Grooms and Brides- You Grooms and Grooms and Brides and Brides...
Its all in the detail guys.....
Call TJ if you want any help!! or advice x
