Wedding Wishes Brides Want Grooms To Know – #1 You’re The Bride’s Hero
Brides get so excited over the wedding NOT ONLY because they want to look and feel like princesses on that day. Yes, it’s lovely to be fussed around by the bride’s parents, bridesmaids and even the hair and makeup artist.

When chosen carefully, the wedding gown can bring out the best features of your bride and exude her personality! So when your bride tries on the wedding gowns, remember this: the answer to her question of “What do you think?” is most definitely not just “nice.”
Even if you can’t differentiate between off-white and ivory, she wishes that you’d let her twirl in her wedding gown and take that extra moment to delight in her. Right there and then, the one who can inspire her to become a princess is you!
Wedding Wishes Brides Want Grooms To Know – #3 She Wants To Look Her Best In The Wedding Photos
To her, the wedding day is one that is breathtaking. The exchange of vows and rings, the heartfelt thanksgiving speeches and seeing her dad (the rock solid pillar of support for the family) weep as he walks her down the aisle are all exquisite moments. These are pristine wedding photography moments that remind her of how far the two of you have come and have to be grateful for.
Being able to capture and immortalise these memories then becomes extremely important. That’s why she wants to hire the perfect wedding photographer. She might research for the best wedding photographer, compare rates and scrutinise portfolios. It might even frustrate you! Although there’s no such thing as ‘perfect,’ (and she probably knows that), the best gift you can give her in this case, is your patience.
Wedding Wishes Brides Want Grooms To Know – #4 Not All Flowers Are The Same
Nature embodies an intricate beauty. Smooth eucalyptus leaves create a congruent forestry design, while petite dried flowers create a whimsical tone.

They’re searching for a bridal bouquet that speaks about them and also matches the wedding tone and mood. That’s what brides want you to understand. When they search for bouquet ideas on Pinterest, they enjoy showing you a particular picture, while gushing: “Isn’t this super pretty!” In these instances, she wishes that you’d dwell in the photo or at least ask her about it.

Because these are things that make your union so special.
These memories brings colour to your love story and she wants to share every line of that story during the wedding. If she seems to be obsessing about the table styling or childhood photo montage, it might be because she thinks the world of you and this love she has with you. As she shares with you some ideas that she has, know that her wish is for you to assure her that you’re holding those memories as dearly as she goes.

Wedding Wishes Brides Want Grooms To Know – #9 Involve Her Sisters
A marriage is a union not only of two persons, but of two families. It’s the beautiful clashing of faiths, cultures and preferences. Truthfully, the more people you involve in your wedding planning, the more complicated it can get.
Each person would have their own opinions and decision-making gets tougher. Yet, involving others shows an effort that you care enough to try and understand the other person’s perspective. Especially if these people are going to be your in-laws or brother and sister-in-law, your relationship with them matters as well! And your bride definitely wishes that you can get along with them.
So if you are able to, take some time to meet them for a meal and understand how this friendship is formed. Your bride would definitely want you to know her closest sisters/friends. After all, she has chosen you to be her husband to be!

Wedding Wishes Brides Want Grooms To Know – #11 Wedding Planning Is A Team Effort
Wedding planning can be stressful! Not just the months leading up to the wedding, but also the potential wedding disasters that can happen on the day itself.
Stressful and overwhelming as it can be, planning a wedding is an exercise for your bride and yourself to learn how to work as a team, resolve conflicts and realign values. It’s a testament to how your marriage will begin. Even though it can cause you and your bride to rub shoulders, don’t let these tensions get in the way. She knows that ultimately, it’d make your marriage stronger. So, don’t shy away from it!
Wedding Wishes Brides Want Grooms To Know – #12 Marriage Is More Important Than The Wedding
The wedding is the start to the rest of your lives together. While the wedding is a grand and magical affair, she knows that what’s more important is the morning after the wedding. Then, it’s the morning after the honeymoon. Then, it’s the morning after fifty years of marriage (and three grown kids? IF that’s in your plan!). She knows that; she wants you to know that; and she wants to know that you know that too.
The best gift you can give her this Christmas is to share in her heart desires. When she says or does something that appears obsessive, learn to listen for her heart strings. Behind the fairy lights and champagne popping, she already found her dream-come-true in you.
