Getting married is all about committing to being a team! Often weddings are portrayed as the ‘Brides day’, an event that she has been ‘dreaming about since childhood’ and that weddings are a one-sided event that only women care about. I can speak confidently for the Bridechilla community when I say that a majority of our community didn’t grow up dreaming about the little details of a wedding, more likely they aspired to be in happy relationships, to be in love and to find their fellow weirdo!
The concept of wedding planning all coming down to women is one perpetuated by media over and over again. Wedding magazines and blogs are primarily marketed at women, they repeat the message that it is women and women alone who make all of the wedding planning decisions and men are simply there to agree and perhaps chuck in an opinion about the song list and bar.
Because of this misconception, a lot of couples struggle with how to go about sharing tasks and decisions and I think that some guys use this as a bit of a responsibility dodge. By starting your wedding planning like you would any big couple decision….together…you will be far more likely to plan the wedding celebrations that both want to have. My guest this episode is Mark from swankybadger.com, he is a reformed Groom and ready to share his insights on getting your partner (and your team) on the right track when it comes to planning your wedding.
