Does a Groom need to "prepare" for his wedding day?

A List for The Groom

There is a misconception that the groom need not prepare for the wedding day. However, we do tend to think of the bride when it comes to the wedding day look. There are so many questions swirling around the look she will pick for her walk down the aisle. From her hair, makeup and dress the opportunities are endless. But these decisions are not limited to just the bride. Not at all, in fact, the groom has small details to consider too! They’re just that, small! But on your wedding day, small details are the most noticeable. Here are a few tips to help the groom master his small details on his wedding day!

Groom Your Face
No matter your facial hair preference, it is important that it is mastered. The key is to make your hair (or lack thereof) intentional. Start with using a sharp razor blade. Having the most effective products is the first step to conquering your look. Whether you’re trimming your beard, or planning to completely shave your face it is essential that you practice your look in the weeks leading up to your wedding.

Word of the wise, don’t deviate from your planned look days before you say “I do.” If you want to test out what you’re hoping to have, we suggest testing this out a few months before. That way there is no pressure for it to grow back. Both you and your spouse will thank us.

Handle Your Hair

There is a bit of a difference when it comes to styling your hair for your wedding day. Even if you are someone that styles their hair daily, you now need to ensure that your look can last all day. From the morning you wake up, through your ceremony and long into the night at your reception; you have to be photo ready and therefore can’t afford to have any loose hairs! Much like your facial hair, it is recommended that you do a few test runs in the weeks leading up to your big day.

Once you decided on a cut, you should really practices styling your hair with the products you’re hoping to use on the day. This is important for a few reasons. Not only do you want product that will withstand long hours, but you want to make sure that your product doesn’t irritate your skin. This is especially important for those of you who don’t tend to use a lot of product in your typical routine. We recommend researching fragrance free hair care products to take on a trial run.

Take Care of Your Body

What else can you do to prepare yourself to be picture ready? Your best bet is to focus on your face, afterall, it is the focus of your wedding day. If for no one else, do it for your bride! Look into some at home teeth whitening products to give yourself your brightest smile yet. It can be as easy as swapping out your standard toothpaste for a whitening paste.

If you’re really looking to perfect the smallest details, take a look at your eyebrows. When is the last time you took a tweezer to the brows? If you’re really hesitant to use a pair of tweezers, there are electric trimmers that can do a great job at eliminating any unwanted hairs.

For all of the grooms out there, it is important to remember that this is your day too. When you look good you feel good, and that will shine through your wedding photos! Take the time to take care of you and you won’t be disappointed with the outcome. You’ll be surprised how many guests will take note of your pristine look!
