5 Grooming Tips for the Groom

Let’s face it, everyone will be staring at your beautiful bride on your wedding day. But, you don’t want to look unkempt and unworthy standing next to her. Ensuring you’re properly groomed for your wedding will tell the world that you’re proud and lucky to finally be marrying your fiancé. It can be stressful to decide how to look your best on your wedding day, but it is simple. Here’s 5 quick and easy tips on how to get yourself ready for your big day.

  1. Style your hair
    This one may seem obvious because most grooms don’t hit the aisle with flat and straggly hair. Here’s two great tips to help you achieve the perfect style for your big day. First, practice really does make perfect! In the months leading up to your wedding, practice different styles until you find one that you like, and then continue to practice it until you have perfected it. Remember: there will be tons of photos that you will be showing family and friends for years to come. It’s great to go with a timeless style and a look that doesn’t stray too far from how you normally do your hair. However, if you don’t trust yourself with a comb and don’t have the slightest idea what pomade is, it might be a good idea to hire a barber to style your hair that day. Choosing a barber you trust can ensure your hairstyle is perfect and will last all day and night.
  2. Get a manicure
    Okay, okay, now don’t knock it before you try it. If you’ve never had a professional manicure, the days leading up to your wedding can be a great time to try. Manicures can be a nice time to take 30 minutes to yourself, in the midst of the crazy wedding planning, to relax. You can opt in or out of a clear coat on your nails for a polished look. Either way, your hands will look clean and feel soft. If you’re not comfortable with the idea of going to a salon, you can treat yourself to a DIY manicure. But, the professionals do it best and having someone else do this for you ensures you can truly enjoy a relaxing experience.
  3. Shave
    Whether you have a beard, scruff, mustache, or stay clean shaven, grooming your facial hair is very important for the wedding. It’s a smart idea to plan in advance how many days before your wedding you will be trimming your face to achieve the perfect look. It’s also important to have a sharp razor to ensure a close shave, smooth edges, and to avoid unwanted nicks.
  4. Skin care
    Keep your skin care routine as simple as possible, changing it too much may result in surprise breakouts. Stick with the products you normally use and feel free to add in a lightweight night cream so you wake up extra moisturized. However, if you have a few months and are looking to switch things up, this is a great time to try a new product you’ve been eyeing. Stick with it for at least a month to see how your skin reacts. No matter how much time you have, keeping it simple is best; drink plenty of water, a nice moisturizer for both day and night, and a spot treatment (if needed) are enough to help your skin look youthful and smooth.
  5. Massage
    Self-care if a huge part of grooming and if you’re feeling your best you will look your best. Massages can reduce anxiety, help banish cold feet, and ensure you feel confident on the big day. You can even have a massage therapist come to you with Zeel. Plus, you could take it a step further by gifting your groomsmen the same experience.

We all know that weddings tend to revolve around the bride but it’s important for you to look and feel confident next to her. Caring for yourself and taking time to relax before your wedding will ensure you look and feel your best. Plus, if you take the initiative to care for yourself, it will be one less thing for your partner to worry about on the big day.
