Tips for the Groom

We know many Grooms often adopt the “innocent bystander” role when it comes to weddings, but there are some essential considerations for the Groom that he should be taking charge of! So take note guys, here are our biggest tips.

1. Manage your Men

Choosing who will stand by your side on the day you tie the knot is a huge decision, so choose wisely! We’re not just talking about who will look good in your photos on the day; we’re talking arranging your stag do, being responsible for your wedding rings and of course, delivering a memorable speech. But above all, you want to know you can trust them to do you proud on your big day. Don’t forget to bare this in mind when you select your Best Men.

2. Speak from the Heart

We know it’s a daunting experience for many; standing up in front of all your family and friends to deliver arguably, the most important speech of your life. But hey, it’s all part of the fun! Our advice is to simply, speak from the heart. Don’t be afraid to wear your heart on your sleeve when you make this speech, after all, this will hopefully be the best day of your life!

3. Speak Your Mind

Don’t be afraid to speak your mind when it comes to sharing your opinion on your wedding as a whole. After all, is it both of your wedding days! We love seeing a couple who know what they want and create their special day built around the things they both love the most. And isn’t that what marriage is all about anyway?!

4. Give Her a Break

We know how stressful planning a wedding can be, especially for your bride. With so much to organise and coordinate it’s a busy time for everyone involved, and emotions can often run high. Be sure to be mindful of this in the days and weeks leading up to your wedding. So if your fiancé turns into a bit of a bridezilla?! Cut her some slack, it won’t last forever.

5. Boogie Shoes!

Why not impress your new wife with a surprise on the night of your wedding, by wowing her with your dancing moves! Lessons can be found at locations all around the country, offering dance lessons for that big first dance moment. It’s better to look like you know what you’re doing then to sway for 4 minutes, but hey, that’s our opinion!

6. Go Easy…

It’s easy to get carried away on the night (and morning of!) your big day; but we do advise watching your drinks when it comes to your wedding day. We are all about the celebration, but a few too many beverages on the eve of your wedding can be a big mistake, especially if your nerves kick in the next day! Keep the celebration until your reception or at least keep an eye on those drinks the night before your big day. You won’t regret it.
