Good morning every body!
Today’s post will feature tips and tricks on how to get your fiance excited about planning your wedding. Everyone says it’s all about the bride, but it’s his day too! To make your big day as special for him as it will be for you, throw in some special details he will truly remember!
So you’re newly engaged, sit down with your new fiance and find out what’s most important to him. My fiance is incredibly laid back and even he had some input. One thing almost all men will want to participate in is the food tasting. What man wouldn’t love a day filled with sampling amazing food. This is the easiest way to get a little excitement out of your future husband. Talk with your caterers and set up appointments to sample food and make sure to bring your man along.
Another great food related way to get your groom involved is to create a signature couple’s cocktail. Meet with bartenders either at your venue or at your favorite bar and come up with a special drink that reflects each of you. You can have one signature couple’s cocktail or have two specialty drinks for each of you.
Signature drinks can sometimes lean towards the girlier side, here are a few cocktails that he, as well as your guests, will love:
James Bond Vesper Martini
This martini is James Bond’s drink of choice. To make it combine 3oz. Gordon’s gin, 1oz. vodka, 1/2 oz. Lillet Blanc. Then, in the words of Bond himself, shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel.
This drink is extra special for a groom that’s especially a Bond fan. It also fits in well at a more formal affair.
Next up, if your fiance is the type of guy that loves whiskey or bourbon, then this one is for him!
No frills here – its just you and the bourbon. This just screams, “Rugged Man”.
Is your groom into golfing? Then try this out!
A Hole In One
This delicious concoction shows you are a gentleman, yet gives an underlying tone that you love sports and athleticism – therefore you are a man. It’s very swanky and has a good country-club socialite as well, perfect for the man that loves to golf.
To make a Hole In One add 1 1/2 ounces Johnnie Walker red, 1 tbsp honey and 3 ounces of unsweetened tea in a glass. Stir and serve over ice. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
Another great way to incorporate your groom into wedding planning is through his groom cake. The groom’s cake is the time to showcase your groom’s interest. Bakers these days are going above and beyond on the cake front. If you can dream it, any baker can build it! Here’s some fun ideas:
LSU Cake/Whatever sports team they cheer for
In Louisiana, LSU themed cakes seem to be the norm. Just about every man is a fan. Here’s some great cakes.
This replica of tiger stadium is sure to have any Tiger fan jumping for joy.
If you’re like me and your fiance cheers for another team, incorporate that in the cake as well. My fiance graduated from Texas A&M (we try not to hold it against him) and goes to LSU Law School. I’m trying to talk him into something like this.
If your man isn’t such a sports fanatic, try incorporating another one of his hobbies into the cake.
Is he a gamer? Try this out!
And if all else fails, what man doesn’t love a nice cold beer?
Here’s a few more fun wedding ideas that will get your fiance excited about the wedding:
If your man and the male guests at the wedding are known to love football, why not incorporate the actual football into the garter toss? Try attaching your garter to a football for the groom to throw. Your man will think it’s the coolest idea!
And don’t be afraid to incorporate more of your man into the details. He loves baseball? Try something like this! He’ll truly appreciate your efforts, and cherish them forever.
We hope you enjoyed to days post! Enjoy the rest of your day.
