Diary of a Bride | Getting the Groom Involved | Melissa Lynn Hunt Photography

One thing I have been struggling with lately is how to incorporate Carter into the wedding planning. I know many grooms today are becoming more and more hands-on and involved, but Carter is not one of them. He says that as long as I’m happy with everything, he is happy. Which I appreciate, but at the same time it is his day too and I want him to feel like his interests were considered. When I came across the idea of a cigar bar I knew it was perfect for him. Carter and my dad both LOVE cigars, it is one thing they really bond over.  Ordering and collecting the cigars for the bar is a task they can both do to get excited about the big day. And something they have at the reception that is all about them!  Our venue has 2 patios so we should be able to segregate the smokers from those guests just wishing for a breath of fresh air.

I am also excited- who knew cigars could be so cute????
