Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today's groom expects and is expected to take on a large and often times equal role in the planning of the big event. The days of the husband–to–be just showing up with a nice suit on and having no idea of what went into the planning are long gone. This is not to say that the groom's interests need to be the same as the bride's. This book will help the groom to choose what interests them and works well with their talents. If it is not picking out the table cloths to match the flowers, than it could be working on the menu or the invitations or even designing the wedding website. For the groom who wishes to be actively involved and not be limited by traditional wedding elements, the book will suggest ways to create a modern wedding. For example turning the focus to the enjoyment of the guests and thinking of the day as a big party, while still respecting the wishes of the families.

Synopsis:

The days of showering, shaving,

and just showing up are over.

In The Engaged Groom, Doug Gordon shows you how to prepare for and participate in the big day: your wedding. By working with your talents and interests, you can turn the experience into a fun, joint venture with your bride.

  • Good with numbers? Manage the budget.
  • Air guitar champion? Select the band.
  • Like to eat? Help out with the menu.

Along with real-life stories, The Engaged Groomincludes information and advice on handling difficult guests, the pros and cons of destination weddings, obtaining a marriage license, making untraditional choices like having a female "best man," and much more. With this book, every groom-to-be can help give a much-needed dose of sanity to the process and take an active role in making his wedding truly memorable.
