The Groom's Responsibility

The Groom sometimes feel left out during the planning process, because he is not sure of what he should be doing to help out. A lot of couples today are paying and planning the wedding themselves, without help from the parents. Here are list of somethings that have been known by tradition for the groom to take care of, but this is not limited to anything else he would like to contribute to help out with.

1.Help compile guest list, which include proper name, address, and phone numbers of his guest.
2.Purchase bride's engagement and wedding rings.
3.Rent or purchase his wedding attire.
4.Choose all wedding attire and accessories for the male bridal party members.
5.Plan and pay for honeymoon.
6.Obtain all necessary travel documents for the both of you for honeymoon (i.e. passport, birth certificate)
7.Assist in any and all planning of ceremony and reception.
8.Purchase wedding gift for bride.
9.Pay for the bridal bouquet and all corsages and boutonnières for wedding party.
10.Scout out hotels for out-of-town guests.
11.Bring marriage license to ceremony site.
12.Make payments to officiate and musicians.

...or if this list seems to much, then hire a wedding planner (smile)
