When it comes to weddings, the star attraction is usually the bride, and they never disappoint. From hiring the best beauty experts for their makeup and getting the best gown for the ceremony, brides are known to go the extra mile to ensure they look their best. Grooms, on the other hand, should not be left behind in the grand scheme of things.
Since it’s their special day as well, grooms have an obligation to look GOOD. Some grooms, however, take a passive approach to grooming and show up on the wedding day looking like they just walked out of a hole. This has the effect of taking the shine out of the ceremony and making it a lot less glamorous. The wedding photos also end up looking less than stellar. To help men look their best on their wedding day, we have come up with a few grooming tips that will help in this regard.
Get a facial
Most men consider facials to be feminine and that’s why most men hardly get them. However, men, just like women, get impurities on their face when they are outdoors. The impurities range from dust, pollen, and smoke. All these combined with the secretions from your glands make for a very dirty skin. That’s where facials come in handy.
A good facial will extract all the dirt and grime on your face leaving it clean, smooth and glowing. It also opens up the pores for circulation and effective excretion. On your wedding day, your face should be glowing and you can achieve that with a facial.
Book a facial appointment a few days before your wedding so as to give your face enough time to recover from the chemicals. If you are not sure where you can get a facial, consult your bride and she will direct you where she usually gets hers.
Manicures are not feminine anymore.
You’ve probably witnessed your fiancée getting manicured every week or so and you have come to the conclusion that manicures are just for women. Well, modern men do get manicures and if you’ve not been getting them, your upcoming wedding presents you with an opportunity to get one. Your hands will be getting a lot of attention on the wedding day and you should make sure that your hands are in the best possible condition. Other than trimming your nails and removing cuticles, you will receive a massage when you are getting the manicure. The massage will help remove built up pressure and stress brought about by the wedding planning.
Get your teeth whitened.
You will be smiling a lot on your wedding when taking photos and when receiving guests. You should, therefore, make sure that you are smiling correctly and you can give your smile a great lift with a clean set of white teeth. You can use whitening strips for this purpose but for more impressive results, visit your dentist and have your teeth whitened professionally. It may be a little bit costly but the advantage is clean white teeth that make for great pictures.
Get a clean cut.
Of all the appointments a groom should make prior to his wedding, none is as important as that with a barber. For your wedding, you should be in a clean cut that portrays you in the best possible manner. Shave just a day to your wedding for the best look on the exact day. When you are getting the hair on your head shaved, get overgrown facial hair trimmed as well. Your beard should be trimmed neatly and overgrow hairs on your nose and brow plucked as well.
Don’t forget to manscape.
The wedding ceremony will be followed by intimate moments involving you and your spouse. For this, you will be wise to get rid of the unwanted hair on your body such as the hair your back and shoulders. Waxing is one way to achieve a hairless body but we all know how painful and uncomfortable waxing is. The best option would be to have your hair removed with an IPL hair removal machine.
