We’ve all heard it before – “I have been planning this wedding since I was five-years-old!” Yet even if they have everything planned, scrap-booked and under control, every bride really does want some involvement from their husbands-to-be.

Here at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, we know that it takes many people to plan a wedding, and there are certain responsibilities that are inherent to the role as groom. Follow these 5 pre-wedding tips for the groom to ensure your big day becomes the happily-ever-after that you both are looking forward to.

Choose your groomsmen.
It may be the obvious starting point, but there’s more than just making the final choice. You need to keep track of all of their details as well. Ensure they know the date. Keep a watch on those suit fittings. And make sure if there are any changes, that they are informed.

Help with the guest list.
Don’t leave it up to your bride-to-be to get all of the information (names/addresses) regarding your friends and side of the family. And, once those RSVPs start coming in, assist in making sure that everyone on the list is checked off and all of the missing names are (eventually) accounted for.

Practice or learn to dance.
You don’t need to learn a choreographed dance for the wedding, but get comfortable breaking out your best moves in front of others.

Write your vows.
This tends to be the most important speech of your life. Spend the time and make her feel your love from your heartfelt words. And, even if you plan on using the traditional vows, practice reciting them aloud.

Prepare to say “I Do” by reminding her “I Love You”
Wedding planning is stressful! Those simple three words can mean a great deal to keep her smiling before the walk down the aisle. Remember, for one day, you’re a groom, but for the rest of your lives together you’ll be a husband.
