You can't deny that over the last few years we've seen a surge in the amount of male wedding bloggers and men interested in weddings in general. Whether it's because the economy has forced couples to work together, or because men are finally waking up and realizing that they're throwing the best party of their lives, my gender has been way more involved. Some of the most wedding savvy people I know right now are men.
NOW, the question arises... do women really trust us enough to let us help plan professionally? Women, do you trust straight men enough to accept us into a profession that is dominated by women or gay men? Would you hire us? Do you think we are able to help plan a wedding that both Bride & Groom would be proud to call their own? In the days where you turn on the television and hear all about "man caves" and "man-b-ques" et al, do you trust that we could give you something that isn't a "man wedding"?
Rebecca will be the first one to tell you that I did a lot of our wedding planning. Not one guest, vendor, or internet troll commented that our wedding was masculine in the slightest bit. Everyone had a blast and thought it was a beautiful and entertaining wedding. I think having both my sense of style mixed with Rebecca's is what made the wedding pop.
Ultimately I guess the job of the wedding planner is to facilitate the vision of the Bride and Groom. I absolutely think it's possible for us to do this! Please don't confuse this post as me saying women aren't doing a wonderful job in this industry. You've conquered it and are running it soundly. I'm just curious, as men get more and more involved each year, do you trust us enough to put your wedding in our hands.
Let me know what you think! Would you hire a straight male wedding planner? If not, why? How much do you really trust us? What could we do to prove that we're ready? Do you think there would be any benefits of hiring a man? Are you a straight man that is a wedding planner? Is it hard to get work?
