The days have passed when the grooms seeing brides in the wedding dress for the first time in the church. Yes, the photographs "first reaction" are becoming increasingly popular, but that's not all. A new survey showed that 19% of men surveyed were exclusively / mainly responsible for the choice of wedding dress.
Shocked? We yes! When the TV series «Say Yes to the Dress» will highlight some of these men?
The survey, conducted by Mintel research firm, published Wednesday, also reveals that both men and women have experienced the stress of wedding planning - 32% of engaged or newly married men surveyed agreed that the design very presser compared with 42% of women.
The Mintel also found that men and women have different views on some of the important aspects of the day. 46% of men said that the party conducting the ceremony was the most important compared with 36% of women. The room for the reception was the next important piece for men (15% of men versus 13% of women), followed by the wedding dress (12% men vs. 30% women).
In 2009, the newspaper The New York Times reported that grooms increasingly involved in the planning process, and that the majority of new sites associated with marriage created by men.
Historian and writer Katharine Jellison told Marie Claire magazine in 2011 that attributes the increase in so-called "groomzillas" the fact that men marrying at a later age than they used and that means paying for the wedding themselves and have more sophisticated tastes and preferences.
