Hi all, 


I've been lurking for a while so I figured it's time I started posting.  


I don't see a lot of grooms on here, but between my future bride and myself, she's what she calls a family-minded realist who is good at politics, keeping people happy, and making things pretty, while I'm the Type A / creative sort that enjoys researching, planning, DIY, and spreadsheets, so this forum is right up my alley!


You guys have some great ideas and insight - I'm in awe of all of the collective wisdom being passed on in these pages!  


I have some questions that I'll post in the relevant sub-forums, but I wanted to say hello first. 





The rumors are true - I'm a groom.

    Hi! It is so nice to see a groom take a part. In my relationship I am the Type A extremely planning oriented one. So he just sits back and let's me do my thing and helps or gives his opinion when asked. This is a great forum you will find a lot of great information on here.

    Welcome! It was a groom who gave me most of the info I needed to make my resort decision. It is amazing what you can find on this forum. I also enjoy research, planning and I sure do love me some spreadsheets! (If you decide on Jamaica I have a photographer price spreadsheet I'm happy to send you :) )

    Congrats on your wedding and happy planning! My fiancé is pretty involved too, so it's nice to know he's not the only groom who likes to be included in the research and planning :)

    Congrats and welcome to the site! It's definitely different having a guy lurking around, but I'm a firm believer that guys should be involved in the wedding process too!! I think it's a good leadin to how you'll survive married life!!!! jk


    But you will find a ton of resources here that will help on your planning journey. Whatever you're thinking about and looking for, you'll find it somewhere on this site. Just do a search and it will come up in some way.


    Good luck and happy planning!

    I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015
