In an industry that is so bride-centric, it may be difficult for grooms to find some actionable steps or tips they can take to look their best on their wedding day. So, we’ve put together a short list for all the guys out there in the wedding planning process. These are our tips on how grooms can look their best for themselves, their bride, and in all of the amazing photos taken that day.

Wear a Properly Fitted Suit/Tux

Of all of the tips on how grooms can look their best, this is probably number one, so we’re going to share it first. Make sure you’re on top of your suit or tux fittings. Whether you’re renting or buying make sure your attire is going to fit well. Your wedding day is going to be amazing and there are so many moments you’ll want to remember. However, one special memory you don’t want to have is constantly pulling up your pants or tripping over your shoes. So, when scheduling these visits to your tailor. Make sure it’s on your to-do list, not too early, but also make sure any last-minute adjustments can be done on time.

Have Well-Groomed Facial Hair

Not all grooms will have facial hair, but if you’re one of those guys that do, make sure you schedule in some time before the wedding day to make sure it’s well-groomed. If you’ve had a beard for a while then you’ve probably trimmed it or groomed it a time or two as well. If your beard is still in the works, then make sure you find a way or a YouTube tutorial on how to groom your facial hair. Your wedding album will be filled with so many photos of you and your bride. So make sure you know what you’re doing on the day of. Also, this is not the day to learn how. This is the day to perfect what you already know how to do so you can look sharp for your bride and of course, yourself.

Choose a Flattering Hairstyle

If you have a hairstyle that your bride loves or one that you already know makes you look good, then all you have to do is perfect it before the big day. If you want to try something new, try looking online or do some research. Try different gels and hair sprays so that you can figure out what works for the hairstyle you want on your wedding day. Having a flattering hairstyle is one of the ways on how grooms can look their best. Plus, it’s always a confidence booster to know you look good!

Trusted Barber

Most guys have a hairstyle they’ve been sporting for a few months or years. It’s the one that you’ve become known by. The one that if your barber doesn’t know your name, they probably remember you by the haircut they give you. If so, that’s great. You have a trusted barber. If not, as long as you have a photo or can explain what you want well enough you should be good. But the best thing you can have is a barber you trust. One that has cut your hair before and can help you achieve the style you want.
Taking care of yourself is one of the best ways on how grooms can look their best before their wedding day.

Take Care of Yourself

There’s a lot going on when planning a wedding and it can get hectic. But make sure you find time to take care of yourself. Keep up your skincare and personal health routines. Make time for exercise and eating well so you can feel confident and look your best on your wedding day.
