It’s funny how a bride and groom think very differently about their wedding day. And the Bride versus Groom infographic from DesignMantic at the end of this post sums it up nicely.
Why is it that quite composed calm women turn into some kind of Bridezilla once they name the day with every detail subject to painstaking planning and stress whereas guys sail through it all without a care (unless they are told by the bride-to-be they need to take an interest, or else)?
I can’t really moan – I had a lovely wedding myself though I didn’t stress about anything too much. I didn’t have time to get involved in too much detail because of my job.
Also living 250 miles from where we married I relied on others to choose many of the items with the result that not much other than my dress and the color scheme were my choice in the end.
I sometimes think it’s a shame they didn’t have Pinterest in my day. That has so many lovely ideas for weddings.
But then I would have been green with envy over all those luscious pictures and would have stressed about having something equally as lovely for the cake, invitations, chair covers, flowers, favors, decorations, bridesmaids dresses, gifts for the ushers etc etc ad infinitum …
What is sad is that often a lot more thought goes into a wedding than into a marriage and the commitment that is being made. But then I don’t think there’s any more thought from the guys in that respect despite them not getting involved in the detail of the wedding. Most of us just go into it hoping for the best. I know, I did.
Anyway enjoy this Perfect Wedding Bride Versus Groom infographic.
