Attack of The Groomzilla, Bad Rap? Many Grooms Are Getting More Involved.
Back in the day, most women took care of the wedding plans on their own. Men were happy to let their bride-to-be make all the big day decisions while honoring her childhood vision. Today’s man is a bit different. Grooms are stepping up in a big way to help plan. This can be both a good and bad thing.
You’ve heard of the word “bridezilla,” yes? The sound of it as it rolls off the tongue can make anyone shudder. Today’s wedding vocabulary now includes the term “groomzilla” and invokes the same feeling. Often groomzillas are just jittery guys with great ideas and lots of questions, while some know exactly what they want and are adamant about their needs too!
Grooms tend to stress in a different way than brides.
So how do you adjust to this and avoid either of your titles ending in “zilla”? One word, flexibility. While you’re planning it’s important to remember that the wedding is about the both of you. It’s about two people coming together. What better way to approach this union than that of combining both of your visions?
Girls grow up dreaming of the day, the wedding of their dreams. Boys/Men grow up dreaming of going to the Super Bowl. The women are well informed. They know what they want, and they are more attuned to how to achieve those goals.
When you’re both able to share the responsibility, it takes the pressure off of you to fill in every detail so you and your beau can have the full experience as one. There’s no better way to celebrate the two of you as a couple than having your groom help plan in the most symbolic day of your relationship.
It is after-all, a day that celebrates your love for one another.
