Parents of the groom – your role at the wedding

Written by    Last updated: June 6, 2006

Once upon a time, the role of parents of the groom was clear when it came to weddings ‐ you sat back and let the bride’s parents get on with it…

It’s your son’s big day, and we’re here to make sure you enjoy every second!

Once upon a time, the parents of the groom had very little involvement in the planning of the wedding. They sat back, let the bride’s parents get on with it, and simply turned up to see their son say ‘I do’.

But, times have changed, and contemporary weddings see both sets of parents involved in the planning stages. Alas, you might also be asked whether you plan on adding to the wedding budget as well!

If you’re unsure what your role is, you’ve come to the right place. Let Confetti guide you through what to expect at this special time.
