Grooms with a View Show #2 with Doug Gordon, author of The Engaged Groom
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?

Robert and Doug discuss how to be an engaged groom.  Great ideas to get involved.  Be the producer, delivery guy, food tester...you like to eat, right?  Make and keep track of the budget.   Build a personalized wedding website.  What is the number one thing you can do to help to guarantee your efforts will be appreciated?  Listen to find out.

Engagements last at least 6 months. You need to stop looking at lists and swatches.  It's time for a good dose of sanity.  All couples need to hear about Doug and Leora's wedding-free zone.  This is one of many useful Engaged Groom tips you will find within this show.

Do you micromanage your wedding?  Did you actually listen to the lyrics when making your music selections?  Did you realize your favorite love song is about heartbreak?  Just because a song has a good beat doesn't mean it's appropriate at a wedding.

Great advice: a Do Not Play List.

The bachelor party discussion.  Open communication is key.  Be sensitive to your fiance's wishes and be honest.  Are you comfortable with the plans?  Be advised when you should not have your bachelor party.

Doug helps give voice to questions and concerns that many grooms share.

Newlywedcast with Hyela and Jack who had a romantic wedding at the Essex House in New York City

Are you a little older?  Do you both work?  Would you want to plan your second wedding different than your first?  Hyela does and embraces her second walk down the aisle with much happiness.  Jack, never married before, has two proposals to make.  Hear how Jack includes Sabrina, Hyela's 8 year old daughter.  Later in the show you find out that Jack selected the simple, yet sexy Elizabeth Fillmore wedding dress at Saks Fifth Avenue.  It's a red carpet winner for Hyela's big day. 

Hyela and Jack have a year to plan their New York City wedding.  They know they want an intimate and elegant location.  Having no time to really work on a wedding, they hired an event coordinator, Kristin Manolis of Manolis & Company Productions.  We asked this busy, engaged couple how they found Kristin and how they worked together.

Date: Thanksgiving weekend.  Place: The Essex House.  What next?  This special couple wanted a party -not a traditional "first" wedding.    Music and entertainment was such important components that they had a separate coordinator.  Ever think of including your guests into the lyrics of a song?

Would you want someone famous to officiate?  At first Jack was not enthusiastic, but was ultimately touched by former Mayor David Dinkins' heartfelt words.  The ceremony was touching & meaningful for Hyela, Jack and their guests.

Hyela worked very closely with Kristin when designing floral centerpieces and the creative stationery system.  Individual menus had beautiful calligraphy and were presented in the round. Some really unique and innovative designs were incorporated to reflect this couple's taste and personality.

Best advice: definitely hire an event coordinator.  After interviewing three or four possible candidates Hyela and Jack were very pleased with Kristin's ability to orchestrate and produce a fabulous wedding.  They said, "Kristin does all the work.  We expressed our desires and chose exactly what we wanted .  Guaranteed you'll have less mistakes, headaches and hassles."

Do you want to leave an amazing impression on your guests?  Listen and get some terrific ideas for your wedding from Hyela and Jack.
