Though there are exceptions to every rule, brides tend to be more excited and focused on wedding planning than grooms, generally speaking. Once the proposal is out of the way, a man might think his worries are over until it’s time to pick a suit or tuxedo. However, everyone should get to enjoy the spirit of being engaged! Even if you’d prefer your groom to not have thoughts on the flowers, lest your vision be compromised, there are still plenty of ways for him to get involved and get excited about the lead up to the big day. 

One thing that can help is movies! Particularly if the two of you are working together on DIY projects or stuffing envelopes, watching a fun film can help pass the time. Of course you can always watch your favorites, but picking something wedding related, or at least wedding adjacent, will get grooms in the spirit. Fear not, films don’t have to be “chick flicks” to involve someone getting married.

Here are some fun options to choose from for your next movie night:

Weddings Crashers

I Love You, Man

The Wedding Ringer

The Hangover

The Wedding Singer

Four Weddings and a Funeral

The Best Man

American Wedding
