Whether you are getting married yourself in the next few months, or else are proudly representing the groom as his right-hand man, more commonly known as his best man, for your friend’s wedding, there are naturally a plethora of different things to have to think about and even more to plan.
However, you may well be unaware of the most important things the groom should know, aside from making sure they are on time to the church, so with this in mind, continue reading to learn four things that every groom should know ahead of their wedding day.
1. Little Details Matter
When it comes to a wedding, everyone’s attention will be, as it should be, entirely focused on the bride and groom. Therefore, every little detail, however seemingly small, does make a difference to their special day.
One such detail which you should always ensure is on point and ideally should remember to do either last thing at night, or else on the actual morning of the wedding, is to use a high-quality angelus shoe paint to ensure that not only the groom’s, but the rest of the groomsmen’s’ shoes are shiny, clean and smart. Dirty shoes will stand out like a sore thumb and ruin the aesthetic.
2. You Have to Eat Beforehand
Although this next point seems basic, you must ensure that the groom has enough water to stay hydrated and a nutritious, energy providing, full breakfast before he sets off for the church.
Weddings take a toll on the emotional well-being, as well as the physical levels of health of both the bride and groom, and it is highly likely that as soon as the ceremony is over, you will be whisked away for photographic opportunities and other duties, leaving little time to eat.
3. Be Proactive in Organizing Group Photos
Even if you are not overly bothered about recording the wedding day from start to finish, uploading photos, videos, and even Snapchat videos is still going to be important to many people as it provides them with a way to look back on the special day at a later date.
Therefore, it is the groom’s responsibility to ensure that every single member of his groom’s party is present and correct for all photographs in which they are scheduled to be a part of, not to mention their other duties involved before, during, and after the ceremony itself too.
4. Make Sure to Pay Attention to Your New Wife
You would hope that, as you are committing to spending the rest of your life with this person, you do not need to be reminded to take time out from your busy wedding schedule to spend some quality time with your other half.
However, it is often said, by both brides and grooms, that after months and months of planning their wedding, the actual day itself goes by in a proverbial flash and therefore it is important to pre-plan intimate and alone moments together, at least once or twice, as the day progresses.
