One of the biggest complaints/arguments that I see between brides and grooms in the wedding planning process is that the groom just isn't doing enough to help. Let's face it ladies, 9 out of 10 grooms will not be as excited about planning a wedding as you are, and the 1 out of 10 who says they are, are probably lying! Men don't dream their whole lives as to what their wedding will be like...they don't fantasize about the dress, the venue or just about anything else. Just because he isn't acting excited, doesn't mean he isn't and it doesn't mean he doesn't want to help.
The biggest mistake a bride can make is to ASSUME that her fiance knows what she wants him to do. Most men will be happy to help if you tell them what you would like them to do, and you don't expect them to participate in everything. Pick and choose your battles. If it is extremely important that he come to a certain appointment with you, let him know that and then let him bow out of a couple of other appointments.
The following is a list of dos and don'ts in asking the groom for his help:
