Planning a wedding comes with some challenges. The last thing you need to worry about is not looking your best on this special day. Here are some grooming tips for you can apply before your wedding to help you look more dashing than the day your bride laid her eyes on you.
Grooming Routine For Men
1. Have a classic haircut
A haircut is one of those things that can significantly improve a man’s appearance. It is advisable to go with a classic haircut as opposed to what is trending because the particular haircut that appears so cool today may look ridiculous 40 years later when other ‘cooler’ trends emerge. Your children and grandchildren will be staring at your photos and wondering what you were thinking when you chose that haircut.
The goal is to ensure you look neat. You can achieve this by using a professional barber who’ll be able to best advise you on the kind of haircut that will look perfect on you. A professional barber will look at the shape of your face, your hair texture, and the length of your hair and work with that to create an amazing look for you.
The best time to have this haircut is a week or 5 days to the wedding day. It will still look fresh on your big day, and you will know if you like it beforehand or if you need to tweak it.
2. Trim your beard
You should trim your beard. You can’t afford to look disheveled and unkempt on your special day. Therefore, you need to learn how to trim your beard.
Alternatively, you can have a professional barber trim your beard when you go for a haircut.
But remember, timing is everything. What you don’t want to do is shave on the morning of your wedding because you may get a rash or irritation, which might make you uncomfortable. The best time to do this is a few days to the wedding.
3. Get a skincare routine
Paying more attention to your skin will ensure you look more attractive. This is why you need a skincare routine. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Just make sure you cleanse your skin thoroughly, moisturize it, and wear sun protection. This will ensure your skin is clean, well moisturized and protected from the harmful effects of the sun. The result is an amazing skin that looks good beside your bride and in your wedding photos.
If you want to take things a notch higher, you can have Botox to give you a smoother forehead. You can do it 3 to 5 months before your wedding.
4. Take care of your teeth
You are going to be smiling a lot, taking plenty of photos, and talking to several people. This means your teeth need to look good. It is time to step up your oral care by doing what is necessary to give you a brighter smile.
One of the ways you can achieve this is by using teeth whitening toothpaste months to the wedding.
Another thing you can do a few weeks to the wedding is to see a dentist for professional teeth cleaning. If you feel like you want your teeth to be whiter, then you can have your dentist perform a teeth whitening procedure during your visit. Trust me; your teeth will thank you and so will your bride.
When you’ve done all these, you need something to keep your mouth smelling fresh on your wedding day. Therefore, use mouthwash for extra cleaning and have some breath mints on you during the day.
As a groom, you want to have an attractive and polished look as you are standing beside your bride on your wedding day. You can apply these tips to ensure you achieve your objective. I wish you all the best on this beautiful journey.
