Not being involved in wedding decisions is not a big deal for most grooms. Most are thankful not to be, frankly. This Grooms is mostly interested in macro decisions (where, when, open or cash bar, etc.). Lisa hasn’t shut me out like Sarah has in this comic, but the “calling her mother every three minutes” thing is true to life.
The big day probably won’t come until 2016 at the earliest, but we’re getting a jump on planning now. Any money we’ll have for this wedding is borrowed, so we’re scrimping when we can. We set up a new savings account to encourage more discipline. We’re also both planning on losing weight. Optimism abounds.
