Robert Allen and Doug Gordon talk about Doug’s book The Engaged Groom.  Robert asks Doug what inspired him to write the book.  When Doug got engaged in August 2003 he wanted his blog to have a focus.  He was busy wedding planning so he wrote about it… engaged from the groom’s
point of view.

Robert asks Doug how he thinks chronicling the wedding experience helped the wedding planning process.  Doug wrote about every last detail and learned more about weddings than the average guy.  How did his wife Leora feel about this?

prospective groom.  Craig is also the creator of an extensive website serving as a sounding board for grooms-to-be.  Craig advises grooms starting the process:  support your bride, really listen and step up every now and then and you will be appreciated for it.  Learn what to do and what NOT to do.

Hear how brides can get their groom involved through technology whether using the Internet for basic research for favors, booking travel, purchasing jewelry to creating your registry and building a wedding website.  The groom inevitably will get hooked.

Listen first hand how to best deal with the family – the inlaws and your family.  Be a good son.  Communicate.  Delegate.  Be patient.

Wedding costs are out of control.  Craig shares some great cost saving ideas without cheapening the affair.  Start early, go off the beaten path, adopt a less-is-more attitude.  Saving money will save you time and anxiety in the long run.
