A Little Inspiration: From the Groom

I’d like to introduce myself as you know of me, but we have not been formally introduced. My name is Mark. Yes, that’s right, I’m the Groom. I’m the man that has asked Laicie (LO as I call her) to marry me.

Ill be honest, I feel a little lost in the planning of the wedding. I’m no stranger to the notion that a wedding is one of the biggest days of a woman’s life, that from a little girl the images of romance swirl through her head. LO was that little girl and has grown to this woman that now wants to make the wedding reflect the feeling that we have for one another, that’s no easy task.

I feel like I’m a usual groom, I want the wedding to be everything that she has dreamed of. I want to be involved, because the wedding is about us, but I don’t want to get in the way as well. I find myself testing the waters to see how she reacts to know if it will make her happy or not and worst of all I might say, “What do you like?”

Well I’m a fast learner, and it’s taken me since our engagement to realize that this is a fatal mistake. LO really wants my input and having it is as important to her as the wedding itself, I think a lot of Brides are this way.

So, I’ve decided to make amends. One out of the million details that needs to be addressed is the BBQ reception we are having the night before our wedding. This BBQ is a welcome to our weary travelers slash rehearsal dinner. It’s important and has become an event in itself.

So, in a new good faith effort to do what all grooms should do I made an inspiration board!

I created an inspiration board to bring to LO to give her a pure idea of what I envisioned for the BBQ… and then I listened. She loved some parts and didn’t like others… but now we have a platform to mold the BBQ into something that is special for me and special for her.

This is the board I brought to her. Take a look tell me what you think. Ill have her post the final board when we get there.
