A Groom With a View: BluefishJD’s Wedding Planning Diary

We always hear about weddings from the bride’s perspective, her likes, dislikes and desires and rightly so as we do love our brides2be but what about the other important part in this wedding planning process…the groom? Rarely do we get an insight into what he may be thinking, dreaming, worrying about. So with a little nudge and an outlet, a regular contributor to mrs2be’s discussion forums, BluefishJD has agreed to relay the wedding planning process from his own groom’s perspective.


So, over to BluefishJD…

Firstly though this isn’t going to be the start of  our wedding journey rather than pretend I’ve been writing these posts for months I am only starting this today. But to fill you in and catch up to the present time I will be writing about things we have already come across/done/booked/experienced and kinda back date them so to speak. So I may post about something I have already posted in response to another missie’s thread on the forum but go into more detail as well as write about a something I come across that I feel is interesting and informative enough to share.

I know there aren’t a lot of wedding-caring guys out there, and I would never have put myself down as one either! It’s not that when I was younger thought oh ya I’d like that at my wedding… it’s just that this is where I have found myself, having falling madly in love with my Bluefish Belle who is from Poland and after deciding on Ireland as our choice of destination to get married I’m the local – so I have more clout and the all important contacts to pull this wedding off and give my b2b and myself one hell of a big day out albeit within our budget. And not that I wouldn’t want every part of the day to be exactly as Bluefish Belle has dreamed of since a little girl but I (probably unlike most men) actually wanted to get involved, as well as it been necessary in our particular case, and to be honest I’m really interested in my upcoming wedding; as in where it’s going to be, what will we eat, what’s the wedding invitations going to look like, a big wedding or a more intimate gathering, will we have a band or a dj or both?

So if there is any of you out there like me, who kinda care but not yet ready to admit it, or indeed a future bride2be who’d like to see a groom’s perspective or indeed can give me advice and teach me a thing or two then this could be the blog for you!
