How Can You Help Your Groom Look His Wedding Day Best?

Your wedding day is almost here! If you’re like most brides, you’ve spent countless hours choosing your dress, your hairstyle, arranging for a manicure and pedicure, selecting the fragrance you want to wear and attending to many more tiny details, all in an effort to look your absolute best for the big day. While going the extra mile to make the most of your appearance may be obvious to you, it may not be apparent to your groom that he should be doing the same thing. Help him to look his best too by suggesting a few steps to take in preparation for your wedding day.

·         Make an appointment for your guy at a high-end barbershop on the morning of your special day. There’s really nothing quite like a hot lather shave. If your man has had one before, he’ll know what a wonderful experience it can be. If he hasn’t, he’s in for one terrific surprise. The process involves hot towels, pre-shave crème, hot lather shave crème, a straight-edge razor and more hot towels. The end result is a shave closer than you (or he) can imagine, not to mention a very relaxed future husband!

·        Help him choose wedding day accessories. By this time, the groom’s suit has probably already been chosen, as well as those for his best man and groomsmen, but a few additional extras can really add some polish to your man’s wedding day attire. Men’s jewelry is the hottest new trend in male fashion. Sit down with your guy and look through the wide variety of masculine designs on some of the more reputable online jewelry sites. Choose from rings, bracelets or pendants for men in a wide range of styles. Ask your man to choose his own special jewelry for your wedding day and the honeymoon that follows. There is an almost endless selection available in some of the more contemporary materials now used in men’s jewelry. Browse through the assortment of pendants for men made of tungsten carbide, which pairs a handsome look with an affordable price tag. This extremely durable material is used in many attractive men’s necklaces - a tungsten dog tag pendant with a single diamond, for example, is a perfect masculine yet wedding appropriate accessory.

·        Suggest that he have his teeth professionally cleaned and whitened. This is a detail that many men may overlook, but it can make a world of difference in his appearance on your special day. While professional whitening is the most effective, he may also choose to use one of the many over-the-counter teeth polishing products if he’s hesitant to make a trip to the dentist. Either way, brighter teeth will give him the confidence to put on the broadest smile possible for the wedding day photographers.
·        Recommend a manicure. You know how pampered you feel when you have your nails done, and your guy will feel just as pampered by having a manicure of his own. Even if this isn’t something he wants to have done on a regular basis, ask him to give it a try a day or two before the wedding. He might be surprised at what a difference it can make, particularly in wedding day close-ups!

The day you get married is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for both of you, so why not do everything you can to make sure you both look your best? Although these extra grooming steps may not be obvious to your guy, he’ll definitely like the results. Women aren’t the only people who enjoy a little pampering!  After a hot shave, a manicure, teeth whitening and donning one of the handsome pendants for men available online, your groom will feel great and look his absolute best on the special day that marks the beginning of your lives together.
