Groomzilla

noun; blending
A man who is overly fastidious about the details of his upcoming wedding, making all choices about the particulars of the wedding and giving his future wife almost no input Caplan wanted a way to censure men who take too much control over their weddings and call their wedding planners five to six times a day. With the term “groomzilla”, she effectively denigrated these women as monsters who are as destructive as Godzilla, blending “groom” and “Godzilla.” One should note that Caplan coins both the terms bridezilla and groomzilla.
 
The bridezillas who pay assiduous attention to nuptial details haven't disappeared. But increasingly they're joined at the altar by groomzillas, who care just as much about the particulars of the big day.
Etymology : Groom (Middle English grom, grome; perhaps akin to Old English gr wan “to grow”) + -zilla “monster”
