DH slept in and made sure that his (extremely difficult) father got dressed in something appropriate (which FIL refused to wear) so DH got all his fathers clothes ready and put them in his car since his dad refused to ride in the limo.  I kissed him 1000 time for doing this and keeping track of time! (FIL is not disabled or elderly or anything, just a royal pain in the ass and stubborn)

Thats awesome your guy could help out so much! We didn’t have any setup so I don’t know who the tasks normally belong to but that was very sweet of him.

I was actually just thinking that it would be nice if the groom would help with set up or check arrangements. I think it just feels a bit off when the groom and his GM are just hanging out or sleeping in and the bride is running around working.

I know that my FI intends on spending the morning of our wedding hanging out with the boys and having a few beers.

Having said that, up until now he has done most of the work for our planning process! He has been in contact with numerous DJs to obtain quotes, researched celebrants, looked into honeymoon costs, written up our guest list, started on table seating, made comparison charts for engagement party/wedding venues, and even done an entire comprehensive spreadsheet for the whole wedding!

He says he wants to get everything sorted as early as possible (we still have approx. 15 months until our wedding) so that I won’t be stressing out last minute. No doubt he will have everything sorted before the actual day, so I suppose I’ll let him off the morning of! 😉

Mine went to IHop for Breakfast, had some drinks while watching March Madness in their hotel suite they were getting ready in, and then got ready for pictures 🙂

My husband, his groomspeople, their significant others, and his family set up the ceremony space. One of my very favorite things to do after the wedding was to go through the TONS of pictures that a friend of the family took to chronicle the process. They did a great job with the space!

@Nicole_Lee:  That was exceptionally sweet. He spent the morning doing things for you and checking up on the little details I don’t think most men care about.

My DH and his groomsmen went to the gym and to lunch.

He sounds great! My husband and I had breakfast with our guests, went on a hike together, and then got ready separately. I don’t think we had any wedding stuff left to do, or we’d have done it.
