Originally posted on Polka Dot Bride September 3rd, 2008 Kathryn from the gorgeous Snippet and Ink has created four fabulous mini boards for Polka Dot Groom along with some fantastic ideas to help the groom shine! Today we’re sharing the first of her creations with you.

I’m sure that most of the time, the wedding world comes off as incredibly bride-centric, and I hope that these four mini-boards will provide some groom-friendly ideas. I know I’m making some sweeping generalizations about what men like, and I don’t mean to imply that these are ideas that women wouldn’t like, but they are based on things that I know most of the guys in my life would enjoy.

.. Personality: It seems so often that even if a bride’s personality is able to shine through all the glitz of a wedding, the groom’s personality is lost. Here are some fun ways to let your personality show.

A groom’s cake is a great place to let his personality ring through. This graffiti-inspired one is by far the coolest one I’ve seen – it may actually be the wedding cake, and not a second one for the groom. (photo by Marie Labbancz ) 3. Even with the most formal wedding, your save-the-date can be playful and casual, and an excellent opportunity to show of your sense of humor. (save-the-date photo from Justin Pocta via Weddingbee) 4. Whether you hire someone to roll them on site, or just have a box of cigars to hand out, they’re a very manly addition to the after-dinner hour. ( via Oh How Charming!)
