Assuming that you have popped the question, bought the ring, helped select the venue, attended the tasting of the wine and food, and selected your venue and tuxedo, that still doesn’t mean your work has finished.
Namely, the wedding day is considered one of the most stressful in your entire life and it’s no wonder that wedding planning can cause many frustrations for couples. But the good news is that there are a couple of things you can do to ensure that the upcoming event runs smoothly. Remember: it’s not all about just showing up on the wedding day. It is far more than that! You are wrong if you think all your responsibility starts on the wedding day. You have to know that your future bride needs support and help for preparing the big day.
Therefore, we’ve considered the top six tips for grooms on how to prepare for their wedding day.
Wisely choose your best man
It is very important to choose a reliable best man for your wedding day. A good best man has to be able to advise you, help you and support you both before and during the big day. That’s because your wedding day is one of the most stressful in your life and you inevitably will be nervous. Your best man needs to be a responsible person who is able to keep you calm down and get you on time to the register’s office and the church.
Help plan your photos
One of the valuable pieces of advice for every groom is to think about wedding photos. Namely, the couple should be taken aside during the drinks reception and then shoot the group photos. Moreover, it is advisable to give the couples a list of shots they can adjust to suit their wedding. The bride shouldn’t decide this on her own! If it’s important to you to have a photo with a specific family member, note this down and let your photographer know about that. To get comfortable in front of the camera, you can also book an engagement session before the big day. Finally, do your best to look as attractive as possible in your photos.
Make sure that everyone gets there on time
One of the essential wedding tips for the groom is to ensure that all the guests are ready and present on time. There’s always somebody late for the wedding. Therefore, give your wedding party a ‘fake’ time to be ready. So everyone should be ready at least 20–30 minutes before they need to be present at the wedding. When the photographer arrives, the wedding party needs to be fully dressed. They should have their shirts and ties, pants and shoes on so that they are ready to help you and everyone else look amazing during preparation photos. When the photographer is done capturing the details, the groom will get ready for the wedding.
Pick the proper wedding suit
A wedding suit is also crucial when it comes to the groom’s overall look at his celebration of love. It can be a three-piece suit, tuxedo or tailcoat. Whatever option you choose, it’s essential to opt for the proper wedding suit. But the best option is quality men’s tailored wedding suits. A skilled tailor can help you bring your dream design to life. In general experience, the grooms are as a rule dressed in identical suits. But our suggestion is to pick a slim-fit suit to improve your silhouette. Moreover, opt for a plain and dark colour such as navy, charcoal grey or black. Black is considered the standard option for such an important event as the wedding day.
Iron your suit on time
As you get closer to the big day, things will be hectic. But one thing should be on the top of the list of priorities – your on-time ironed suit. Do not iron frantically your tie and suit on the wedding day. You surely want to feel and look confident. Therefore, iron your suit at least the day or two before the wedding day.
Be ready at every moment
Since your bride often has an emergency kit, you should have it too. Although it seems unnecessary, that kit might save you in emergencies. We recommend you bring only the essentials: toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, and band-aids if you cut yourself shaving, deodorant, mouthwash, and gum. Finally, don’t forget water in order to stay hydrated and sunscreen if needed.
Dear grooms, we hope that we helped you to prepare for your big day. But maybe the most important thing is to be relaxed and have fun as much as you can.
