When it comes to choices around the big day, it’s often the bride who makes many of the decisions. That said, it’s important that the groom should take an active part in some of them.
For example, he should definitely have a say in the wedding photographer.
This one is important because the photographer will literally be with you throughout the entire process on the biggest day of your life.
He or she will often start the day with the bridal party, snapping candid moments when the groom puts on his tie, when the bride gets her hair done, and when the father of the bride first sees his daughter ready to be wed. Because of the intimacy and nostalgia of these moments, it’s vital that the photographer is not just someone you trust, but someone who you are both extremely comfortable with.
Later in the day, the photographer will then be working closely with you to ensure that you’ve got dozens of precious photos from the day. As some grooms are not comfortable with having their photos taken, it’s important that he can take instruction from the photographer without feeling too awkward.
As well as this, it’s vital that the groom likes the photographer’s style.
While some wedding decisions (such as the cake flavour) will only really matter on the day itself, when it comes to the photographer and the final photos, this part of the wedding is one that will last forever. It’s not just the bride who will be reminiscing over the final collection of preparation, ceremony, wedding breakfast, and first dance images- so this is definitely one decision that both man and wife will have to completely agree on!
