In an ideal situation, the bride and groom share the workload and plan everything together. However, both the bride and the groom must do a few things alone.
Let us check out what every groom must do before the wedding.
For the Grooms
Pick the Perfect Suit
To celebrate your big day in style, it is every groom’s responsibility to select comfortable yet elegant formalwear attire. Some grooms opt for a traditional tuxedo while others go for contemporary slim-fit silhouettes. Grey and white are popular options for a destination or beach wedding.
Choose Appropriate Accessories
Add finishing touches to your wedding look with fun socks or a cool watch. Basic accessories like cufflinks, neckwear, suspenders, pocket squares, and belts make all the difference. Do not forget to have a nice haircut, a week before your big day.
Get your Apartment or House Squeaky Clean
You do not have to do everything yourself. Schedule cleaning services to make sure your house stays spick and span while you are on your honeymoon. Imagine coming home to a comfy and clean house after an exciting vacation with your loved one. You will not have to worry about replacing dirty sheets before you hit the bed.
That is the most important thing to do before your wedding. Now, we are not saying that you will not have any fun after your big day. You will not have enough chances to party out with your friends until 3 am. You can plan your bachelor party if your friends have not done it already.
Surprise your Soul Mate
You do not have to spend a fortune to woo the woman of your dreams. You can gift her a beautiful hand-written love letter, a portrait, or champagne to make your wedding celebrations memorable. Remember to present it at the perfect time.
Practice your Vows
Put technology to use. Using an iPhone, you can transcribe all ‘for vows’ notes and try writing something unique and beautiful. Start practicing your vows for perfect delivery on the big day.
Participate in Organizing the Event
Check-in with the officiant, priest, or rabbi to make sure everyone knows where and when to show up. You do not want to disappoint your guests at the last minute. While it is not mandatory, your bride and event planners will thank you for making these last-minute checks.
For the Brides
We do not want the bride to take too much on her plate. However, here are a few things you should do if you are the bride.
Have a back-up makeup and hair plan
Keeping a few makeup and hair essentials can come in handy if your stylist is using products that you do not prefer using on your skin tone or hair. For instance, you can keep your own mascara or faux lashes to look just as you like on your big day.
You should also keep a pair of flip-flops or flats in case you find your heels too uncomfortable so you can dance the night away.
Talk to your Parents or Siblings
It could even be a friend or a close relative. Naturally, you may be stressed out as a bride. A heart to heart conversation with a loved one reduces stress and helps you prepare for the event.
Check the Menu
Generally, brides are more concerned about the wedding menu. Just make sure it meets your family or guests’ standards.
Plan a Date Night
Sneaking out with your fiancé or boyfriend is a crazy idea when you are about to get married. However, it is always fun to enjoy a night out as friends.
No matter what happens, both the bride and groom must stay stress-free to enjoy the festivity.
