Imag­ine you’ve ended up in charge of or­gan­is­ing a group hol­i­day with all your friends, in­clud­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion and ac­tiv­i­ties. Does that thought fill you with: a) Weari­ness – it’ll be like herd­ing cats b) Ex­cite­ment – I love do­ing a bit of on­line re­search c) Hor­ror – why are we even go­ing on a group hol­i­day? I’d much pre­fer it to be just the two of us 3

How hands-on do you want to be with wed­ding plan­ning? a) I need to ap­prove ev­ery last piece of con­fetti – I’m a per­fec­tion­ist b) I need to make the ma­jor de­ci­sions, but I’m re­laxed about the finer de­tails c) Laid­back – we re­ally don’t want to have too much fuss

4How im­por­tant is it to meet your sup­pli­ers in per­son?

a) Vi­tal – how else could we be sure that we can trust them? b) Fairly im­por­tant, but there’s al­ways Skype, isn’t there? c) Sup­pli­ers? More than one?

you plan­ning to in­clude any wed­ding tra­di­tions? a) As many as pos­si­ble – to keep the fam­ily happy b) Maybe a few, but only if they suit us both c) No, tra­di­tions don’t seem rel­e­vant to ei­ther of us

8Grooms

in-wait­ing: your pre­ferred out­fit would be: a) All in black tie – where else would I get a chance to go the full James Bond? b) Not nec­es­sar­ily some­thing ul­tra­for­mal – maybe just a smart shirt and trousers c) I’m not both­ered – what­ever the per­son I’m mar­ry­ing likes me in 9Is there any­one you’re par­tic­u­larly close to who’s afraid of fly­ing? a) Yes, me!
