Our Top 5 Wedding Day Tips For Grooms

April 15, 2020

Typically, brides are the ones getting most of the attention when it comes to prepping for the big day. So, we wanted to give some attention to our grooms! We know getting ready for your Wedding Day is just as meaningful and important to you, so here are a few tips to make sure you are looking and feeling your best on your big day! 🙌🏻🍾

Plan an Activity. ⛳️ Going for a run or getting your all of your guys together and playing a round of golf is an excellent way to start off your wedding day! Today is a big day for not only the bride but for you as well, so start your day off with something that you enjoy and makes you feel relaxed with your groomsmen. 

Start Your Day Early. ⏰Even if you don’t have a ton of activities to do before the ceremony starts, wake up early so you can start checking the things off your list and allow buffer time in case anything unexpected arises and takes up too much of your time! 

Get Sentimental. 💕Do something a little extra special for your bride the morning of. If you know she’s going to be a little jittery, send her a heartfelt letter! Nothing will put a bride at ease more than a love note from her soon to be husband. Groomsmen gifts are also a big trend! If you want to show extra love to your groomsmen, get the gifts ready the night before so they are ready to handout before you have to start getting ready.

Eat a Big Meal. 🍽 This may go without saying, but your wedding day is going to go by really fast. Between attending to your new wife and all of your guests, photos and dancing you might not have as many opportunities to eat before the reception. We recommend going to your favorite restaurant or having your food delivered to where you and the guys are getting ready the morning of!

Make a checklist.✔️ Nothing will add stress to your day like forgetting something important! We recommend making a list of everything you need to pack, and double check you have everything the night before. Make sure you include things you will need the night before at the rehearsal dinner and for the day after if you have honeymoon plans! 🌴 

We know how important this day is for you, and we also know how easy it can be to become overwhelmed. We hope these tips guide you through your Wedding Day with ease! 🙌🏻
