You spend a fortune to ensure that your wedding is exactly the way you want it.  You spend months, even years planning out the details.  When the big day comes, you should be able to relax and enjoy yourself.  I’ve come up with some tips based on years of observing every kind of wedding, and I’d like to share them you.

For the Groom:

  1. Avoid having your bachelor party the night before the wedding.  You don’t want to show up with puffy eyes and a hangover.  You’ll be looking and feeling your best if the bachelor party suffering is well behind you. Wedding-1Wedding-1
  2. Choose your groomsmen carefully.  Make sure they understand that certain things will be asked of them.  They must be in agreement with the need to be on time, look sharp, to help when asked, and to participate in photo sessions and wedding party activities.
  3. Do a clothing inspection/fitting a few days before the wedding.  Make sure everyone has the correct sizes of everything they will need.  Be sure to include socks, cuff links, and appropriate shoes in your inspection.  Any groomsman who may have trouble remembering to bring everything should leave his entire ensemble with either you or your best man to bring to the location.
  4. The wedding party should limit alcohol consumption until all the important events are finished.
  5. Assign your best man to make sure that things run smoothly at both the ceremony and reception.
  6. Something to consider:  to smash or not to smash.  It is always a good idea to discuss this prior to the cake cutting.  Do not give in to peer-pressure if you have already agreed not to smash.  Be respectful of the fact that your bride has invested significant time, effort, and money to look her best. 104_0443104_0443
  7. After the last toast, perform a toast of your own.  Just a few words of thanks to your guests and a thank you to your new wife
