6 Things The Groom Secretly Wants At Your Wedding

Bride-and-Groom-Wedding-Cake-TopperIt takes two people to get married—which means two people get to weigh in on their wants for the wedding!

Trust him to complete his to-dos with your best interests in mind, and you’ll have a happy groom who will feel proud of his prep work when the big day arrives.

2. Respect for his guests (including those rowdy college roommates)

10 Things To Consider Before Planning A Destination Wedding

While you may love the idea of getting married on the beach, on top of a mountain, or at an Italian villa, planning a destination wedding brings along some unexpected headaches. Here are the ten worst things about planning a destination wedding, plus some tips on how to solve them.

1. Wondering if your wedding is even going to be legal.

Marriage laws vary from country to country (and even different U.S. states) so do your homework! Find out who is an acceptable officiant (friends ordained on the Internet don’t always count), if there is a residency or blood test requirement, and what the marriage license process is.

  • “You are not a professional event planner so please stop acting like you know everything about weddings after reading two blog articles and surfing Pinterest.” — Event Planner Shimona Mayo, Author of Power Plays for Brides
