Check List for the Groom
One Year Check List
These days the groom plays an important role in wedding planning, too. Your fiancé will work with you on many facets of the wedding and will handle some things on his own. Some Grooms will get more involved that other. Allow him to contribute what he can. Here's a checklist to help him remember all the details:

9-12 Months Before the Wedding

  • Buy the engagement ring, and arrange for a special presentation.
  • Discuss the wedding date and budget with your fiancee.
  • Choose your best man and ushers. (One usher per 50 guests.)
  • Select your wedding rings together.
  • Plan the honeymoon.
  • Help with the guest list.

6-9 Months Before the Wedding

  • Join your fiancee as she registers your gift preference at Dillard's.
  • Together with your fiancee, select formal wear for you and your groomsmen.

3-6 Months Before the Wedding

  • Check the requirements for blood tests and the marriage license.
  • Finalize honeymoon plans; get a passport or visa if needed.

2-3 Months Before the Wedding

  • Start addressing your share of the wedding invitations.
  • Reserve your wedding attire.
  • Plan and make reservations for the rehearsal dinner. (The groom's family usually hosts this event.)
  • Meet with the florist. (The groom traditionally pays for the bride's bouquet, all corsages and boutonnieres.)

6-8 Weeks Before the Wedding

  • Choose gifts for groomsmen.
  • Purchase a wedding gift for your bride.
  • Purchase marriage license with fiancee and witnesses. (It's the groom's job to check on all details and requirements.)
  • Adjust insurance policies to reflect new marital status.
  • Pick up wedding rings.

2 Weeks Before the Wedding

  • Check on honeymoon reservations and tickets.
  • Purchase traveler's checks if needed.
  • Arrange to move belongings into your new home (after you return from your honeymoon).

1 Week Before the Wedding

  • Give your marriage license and officiating person's fee to the best man.
  • Present groomsmen's gifts at rehearsal dinner.

The Day of the Wedding

  • Give wedding rings to the best man.
  • Be sure travel tickets are with your change of clothes.
  • Be sure both of you sign the wedding certificate and put it in a safe place before leaving on your honeymoon.
  • Relax . . . and enjoy the celebration.
