A special day... for both of you!

It’s the day you've dreamed about since you were a little girl. You already knew what kind of cake you wanted to serve, the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses and the type of wedding dress you wanted to wear. And now you've found the perfect groom. But what does he want from what’s a pretty big day for him, too?

Sure, guys are rarely as invested in the tiny details of the wedding. The differences between aqua, teal and sea foam blue are lost on most of them. But that doesn't mean they don’t have input on what you’re planning. And while you may be focused on the details that are important to you, there’s a whole set of things that are important to him.

Music: Make sure you both sit with the band or DJ to pick out your favorite reception tunes. That song from 1998 that you love? May just have some not-so-favorable memories for him. And his favorite jam might just be that song you never want to hear again. Better to eliminate those songs before you hit the dance floor.

Food: Have him make sure he knows of any special allergy or food requests from his side of the family. You won’t know that his great-aunt Gertrude can’t eat salmon, but he might.

Wedding weekend events: A full-service resort like the Heritage can offer you and your bridesmaids the best in pampering in our day spa. But he deserves stress-relievers, too. Plan a whiskey tasting at our pub, Shadrach's, or let the guys go blow of some steam at our golf course. It’s a great chance for the men from both sides of the family to get to know each other better, and he won’t begrudge your mani-pedi time.

It’s an important day for both of you, so make sure he gets to feel special, too.
