I started participating in bridal shows in the NY/NJ area about 3 years ago. I quickly noticed 2 things. First, not too many grooms attended and second, those who came were largely ignored.
I sympathize with the grooms. I experience that ignored feeling when I stand next to my husband in an auto repair shop or when speaking with contractors about work on our home. I get the exact same invisible stare. It doesn't matter that I am a mechanic's daughter and know WAY more than my husband about those topics. It is apparent why most men don't bother going!
So, I vowed to work with grooms. And when I actually sat down and looked back at my previous honeymoon couples, 90% of my business was initiated by the groom, so it was definitely a perfect fit!
If you are a bride reading this, don't fret - it is the best of both worlds. The initial consultation is usually conducted as a couple. Then the primary contact with me is the groom. Most men talk things over with their fiance and then get back to me for the planning. The best part is that most of the time the groom and I plan a surprise for the bride, so ladies - you're in good hands!
