Parents of the Groom: Traditional Roles & Responsibilities

Parents of the Groom Traditional Roles & Responsibilities

Your son has met the girl of his dreams and now his eyes are open to the immense world of wedding planning. Sons don’t often think as much about wedding planning, but as his parents you know how important it is to be involved.

We’ve gathered some of the traditional jobs of the groom’s parents, which have normally been much smaller than the bride’s family. Please note! Many of these points follow traditional wedding rules, but do not feel confined by them! Many couples and families opt for completely different arrangements. As long as you keep the lines of communication open, you can divvy up the financial responsibilities and tasks for wedding plan as works best for you.

What do the groom’s parents pay for?

The groom’s family is traditionally in charge of paying for a couple’s honeymoon. They are also in charge of any pre-wedding festivities, with the most common being engagement parties and rehearsal dinners.

There are a few other expenses normally allotted to the groom’s family, including the wedding bouquet, other flowers, and the marriage license.

What do the groom’s parents do on the big day?

The groom’s parents stand after the couple in the receiving line. The mother may also be asked to dance with her son during a mother and son dance. It is also a nice gesture for the groom’s father to dance with his new daughter-in-law at some point during the night.

What do the groom’s parents do during the sealing?

Just as with the bride’s mother, the mother of the groom helps the bride in the bridal room before and after the sealing ordinance. She also helps rally guests outside the temple, as she usually exits before the bride and her mother.

The groom’s father, at the invitation of the couple, traditionally acts as one of the two witness during the sealing, alongside the bride’s father. He sits next to the temple sealer and signs any certificates necessary as a witness to the sealing.

  • "How shortsighted so many of us are, how prone to look only at today without thought for the morrow. But the morrow will surely come, as will also come death and separation. How sweet is the assurance, how comforting is the peace that come from the knowledge that if we marry right and live right, our relationship will continue, notwithstanding the certainty of death and the passage of time." - Gordon B. Hinckley
