They say that a person’s wedding day is one of the most important and memorable days of a person’s life. A day that is shared between two people and their families and friends. A day where all these people come together to celebrate in the love that two people have for each other.

If we were to look at traditions, then a wedding day may not exist without the actions of a single person. Wedding lore tells us that it is the Groom who gets down on bended knee to ask the love of his life for her hand in marriage. Delving further into tradition, he may even get permission from his lady’s parents before he can ask her to marry him.

Fast forward from the post engagement celebrations to the planning of the wedding. It used to be common knowledge that the Groom would sit back and “not get involved” in the planning of the magical day that he instigated. He was simply told what was going to happen and when it was going to happen and that he had to wear a tie that matched the bouquet and he had to pick a groomsmen suit that complimented the colours that she had picked for the dresses of her leading ladies, aka her bridesmaids.

But times have changed thankfully and the Groom is leaving a lasting impression on the day and getting more involved in his attire. Nowadays, the Groom, by right is becoming far more involved with the planning of the wedding day. In fact, I have dealt with numerous grooms up until the week before a wedding. The guys have certainly come to realise that this is THEIR day just as much as it is their lady’s and they now all seem to get involved.

It is comforting to say that before we can see “here comes the Bride”, we first have to make room for the Groom, a person the wedding industry owes a huge thank-you!
