When it comes to wedding planning, it’s safe to say that you’re always going to have a lot going on. Even when you allow yourself plenty of time – years even, you can find that something will just creep up on you. And no matter how much time, attention, and effort you put into your wedding, there always seems to be something else to do. And even these days, a huge part of what needs to be done still seems to be focused toward the bride.

Because it’s your wedding day, you want to make sure that you look just right. But at the same time it’s his wedding too, so your husband-to-be looks needs to look the part too. Like some men (not all, but some) he may not really have a clue how to get himself ready for a wedding, particularly his wedding. And when you want him to look a certain way, you may need to help him keep on track.

Know Where His Stuff Is
It’s likely that you’re going to be picking out his suit and the rest of his attire with him, or at the very least have some input on what he and the men in the wedding party will be wearing. You’re definitely going to want to make sure it’s in line with your theme and color palette.

But when this is sorted, you’re not done. When you’ve got the suit for the groom and groomsmen, you then need to make sure you know where it is, and store it well until the big day. While you’re there, do the same with shirts, shoes, cufflinks, and everything else. You may even want to make sure he gives those shoes a fresh shine before the big day too, just in case.

Book A Hair Appointment
You can only hope that he will know this needs to be done himself, but you may just want to double check. First off, there’s the hair cut. Even if he’s never really fussed with his locks, now is the time to get them sorted – even a trim can freshen up his look. Book a hair appointment for the right time before the wedding, so he can sport a fresh cut. A few days before the wedding day is sufficient – you don’t want his hair cut to look too fresh.

Consider Extra Grooming Too
But that’s not all, he may need some extra grooming measures. You could look into beard grooming, a pedicure, and even a massage to help him relax. Why not make that a couples massage? A pre-wedding pamper could be what you both need right now.

Hold On To Those Rings
We know that traditionally the best man holds the rings on the big day, but this doesn’t mean you can’t hold onto them until the last minute. If you want to make sure they’re safe and keep them in your possession, go for it.

Keep Him Calm
As much as you may be stressing right now, he probably is too. If not stressing, he’s bound to be nervous at the very least. So try to stick together. Remember that you’re both in the same boat and try to enjoy the experience together, rather than turning on one another when times are tough.

9 Things No One Tells You About Wedding Planning – Why Aren’t They?

wedding planningNot too long ago, I read an article titled “9 Things No One Tells You About Wedding Planning.”

It has lots of helpful information that will help ensure that the wedding day turns out they way the couple want it to be.

These tips, such as . . .

  • Don’t start planning the second you get engaged
  • Make a list of all the most important photos you want taken on your wedding day
  • It takes approximately 250 hours to plan a wedding
  • Allow time to call people on your invitation list who didn’t send back the rsvp
  • Plan a budget

. . . are spot on.

I’m just wondering why is no one sharing this info with their brides and grooms?

These tips are all things I regularly tell my couples. Ok, probably not exactly verbatim, but the info gets passed along.

How I Got Started as a Wedding Planner

I wholeheartedly agree with the first sentence of the article, “It’s an unfortunate, but often inevitable, part of planning a wedding that there are just some things you won’t know or realize until after the big day is over.” I mean, you don’t know what you don’t know. (And when you start planning your wedding it’s inevitable that you won’t know stuff, unless you’ve planned several weddings before).

But your vendor team should be keeping this “unknown information” to a minimum so your planning and wedding day will go as smoothly as possible.

So you don’t end up stressing out over the idea of “what am I missing” here is a link to the original article.
