Cupid's Pulse Article: Carrie Underwood Leaves Honeymoon Plans to HubbyCupid's Pulse Article: Carrie Underwood Leaves Honeymoon Plans to Hubby

Country crooner Carrie Underwood has all her wedding plans in order, save for one – she is leaving the planning of her honeymoon to her fiancé, hockey star Mike Fisher.  Underwood has chosen and set every aspect of her big day, but says Fisher is solely in charge of the honeymoon plans, according to People.

How do you divide up aspects of planning a wedding?

Cupid’s Advice:

Though the wedding is typically the bride’s responsibility, there’s always something the groom can do.  It’s a way to make him feel more involved in the event and relieve some of the pressure on the bride, as long as it’s done right.

1. Don’t jump the gun: While it’s important to start the planning phase of your wedding early, giving the groom-to-be too much responsibility too fast can bring on cold feet early.  Let him be involved, but don’t force things into his lap right away.
2. Give him the goods: If he won’t have fun picking out flowers,  don’t force him to go.  He’ll only make it harder on you.  But if he likes music, then let him pick the band or plan your first dance.
3. Make it a group effort: Even if you both have your own areas of expertise or involvement, make sure you work together.  While surprises are nice, it’s always good to give some feedback, even if it’s as simple as Underwood’s request for a honeymoon in “someplace warm.”
