Your wedding is important for so many reasons! It’s the day you are committing to the love of your life and the biggest party you will ever plan. All of the wedding preparation, including venue viewings, tastings, and dress and suit fittings come together for this one day. But have you ever given any thought to what happens when you’re done planning? After all of that work, you may be at a loss for what to do before the ceremony to tie up any loose ends. The bride usually has a relaxing spa day with her bridesmaids, so where does that leave the groomsmen? Check out this list for some pre-ceremony activities to do with your best guys!
As the groom, how you look is just as meaningful as the bride. The happy couple should look like their own version of a fairytale come to life! For the groom, this begins by cleaning yourself up before the ceremony. Whether you’re going for a five o’clock shadow or a clean-shaven look, you need a great shaving routine. Unsure of where to start? Arm yourself with good shaving products to reduce the risk of unnecessary cuts and inflammation. If you’re really looking to go big, splurge and get a full shaving kit packed with shaving gel and post-shave cream. You will have everything you need for a skin restorative shave! Your skin (and your bride!) will thank you for taking the time to groom correctly.
After getting ready, it’s time to give your groomsmen a gift. After all, they are your best friends who came to support you on this important day! Typically groomsmen gifts are an item that can be used on the wedding day or reception like flasks or cufflinks. You can make this moment extra special by personalizing the gifts for each guy. You can choose a different item specific to their hobbies and personality or monogram the cufflinks you bought them. By giving the guys gifts, you are letting them know how much you appreciate their support and friendship.
Since you are all dressed up, this is a great opportunity to get some pictures with your friends! You’ll likely have time before the ceremony starts, so have fun and get some great shots. Grab the wedding photographer and ask for personality pictures like a jumping shot, think freeze frame, or a human pyramid. Don’t get too crazy because you want to keep your suits looking great for the ceremony. Funny pictures of the groomsmen have become a new wedding tradition. You can even get creative and wear superhero t-shirts or cool socks under your formal suits. It’s your wedding day, so celebrate how you see fit!
Toast to Your Future
As a final gesture, take a quiet moment to toast to your wedding and the future! You can voice your appreciation for your groomsmen’s encouragement and love. Take this as an opportunity to reflect on your life before marriage and being single with your guys. That period of your life is coming to a close, but you are starting a brand new experience with your sweetheart. Let the excitement for the wedding ceremony and seeing your bride in her wedding dress start to build before you get to the aisle!
