Marriage requires a partnership between two people. But a wedding? From the cliches of so-called bridezillas hellbent on recreating their childhood dream weddings to passive grooms who "just show up," pop culture would have us believe that the "partnership" goes by the wayside before the Big Day.

A few grooms even planned the whole thing themselves (much to the relief of their brides who "just showed up").
