Just a thought (Original)
Flower bouquets, a beautiful white dress, cake and a cathedral filled with familiar faces. A traditional setting passed down through the ages. On this special day man and woman become one, to have and to hold for better or for worse. A day that she has been waiting for, for what seems like an eternity. But what about the groom? What does this day mean for him? The beginning of happiness? Or dare I say, the last day of freedom? In these modern times it's a well known fact that the wedding is catered to the bride. From the ring choice to whose invited, location and decorations, it's all acording to her liking. The only thing that's left for the groom is the bachelor party. However, sometimes even this is planned by the bride. Most would say that these things are suppose to be left up to the bride and that the groom's only focus should be getting married. To be blunt, a groom involved in any of the planning for the wedding is unmanly. That is the unspoken attitude toward this particular subject. Most men haven't given this a thought and most women like it that way. Does that make these particular women selfish? Focusing only on themselves and what they want for their day? Honestly, the majority of guys really aren't concerned with such things. Seeing her smile as she walks up the aisle makes it all worth it. But what about the bride? Is it the million dollar wedding or simply seeing him ready to receive her with open arms?
