7 Thing That Groom Must Do On His Wedding
If you’re gonna be a groom shortly that I know if you feeling nervous but trust me that every guy must feel the same. Including me, when I got married with Nina back in 2009 than I feel so nervous and don’t know what to do during my wedding day.
So let me guide with these simple steps…
#1 – Wake Up Early and Look Surrounding
Wake up early during your wedding day will help you to figure out for what you gonna do today, look surrounding or sightseeing around your wedding location will make you fresh and think so relax. If breakfast is ready than you can start to make your own coffee and ask your hotel chef to make you the best pancake of the day.
One thing that you should consider is it just the same day that you faced yesterday but today you gonna celebrate your story with someone who you loved, so relax cause in the nexy 24 hours than you will start your new life as a husband.
By the way it happens to any groom in this planet but if me or other groom have succeed, LOL for it that I sure that you will pass it perfectly!
#2 – Get Prepare Your Suit
Open your storage, pick up your suit and see it in deep!
The suit that you touch will be the most unforgetable wardrobe that you will miss in the next decades, once your new life has just begin or when you discuss with your wife about something that you guys should solve than you gonna miss this suit.
Check all the accessories that you should put on your suit, the tie, corsace, or any other things that you want. Make sure everything is perfect and put it back to the storage so your wedding vendor or friends able to help you to dress up when the right time is coming.
#3 Shine Up Your Shoes
Make your self confidence by shine up your shoes, get your shoe shine kit from the nearest store from your home or simply buy it online and take it once it arrive on your front door. Shine it up and imagine that your life after marriage will shining bright just like your shoes, I know you thinking about it and let all you did before your big day became an imagination that will pursuit you into reality.
I’m enjoying to shine up my shoes that take only 15 to 20 minutes and it works so great to spend your last day for being single. Find the good spot to do it, you may sit on your house terrace or if you gonna celebrate your marriage in such beautiful venus than go see the ocean or vinery scenery, it gonna be truly good moment at all.
#4 – Get Your Accessories Set
Look at your luggage and get your accessories set right in front of you, you may think about your brand new elegant watch or taking a good care for your nice parfume that you bought few days ago. Once you get it done than you just did another great things that every groom must do on his wedding.
If I were you than I’m going to put all of my wedding accessories on the box, surely I will orderd it and let my heart feel calm by seeing all of that stuff is fine organize inside a nice box that will full of memories.
#5 – Wake Up Your Groomsmen
Your groomsmen will belong to your best friend during the wedding so wake them up and get the best time together. Since it used to be your special friends or family member that you must be so close and not for being shy to discuss with or talk about something that a little bit personal.
No matter they already get married or not but they will help you to solve your nervouse problem and they will supporting you for sure.
Get some coffee together and light up some real Cuba classic cigar on your big day and feel your energy just like a real man who dare to start a new life.
#6 – Write a Romantic Vow for Your Ceremony
This gonna be the most moment that make you nervous on the day but this is what you must do in front of your celebrant or priest.
For over than 10 years shooting wedding I saw few grooms put a text during the ceremony but some of them are not. If you willing to say vow without a text but I still suggest you to make some note that gonna be the point of words. But if you still feel nervouse for the ceremony than write a simple note will be great thing that you can do.
Write it in a honest way!
You could write how lucky you are for having your fiancee on your life, tell her about what you gonna for taking care of her for the entire life, and feel it when you make a words and make sure for not being so rush on this session.
It might be a bit funny for the first time but I saw hundred of grooms get his tears on the cheek during the ceremony. You might be face the same situation but it’s quite normal and you don’t need to be shy if you cry on the ceremony…..trust me I saw romantic moment on it.
#7 – Meet Your Fiancee on Her Last Day of Being Single
The last thing that groom must do on his wedding is meet his fiancee, look into her eyes and see how beautiful she is before wearing her beautiful wedding dress. If you already stay with her and meet her for every single day than trust me that this morning gonna be extremely different.
Today you will say the vow and get married with the girl that you really love, right in front of her family, friends, also the God….so meet her and say that you love her so much!
My Last Words,
There will be a situation where you feel black out during the ceremony and it happen to so many grooms that I ever met but if you want to avoid it than it’s really simple!
Enjoy your day!
That’s the simple point that you must remember during your celebration, don’t be too much worry or nervoise cause you’re not going to the jail but you gonna get married with your beautiful angle that God gave to you. So enjoy your day and stay calm.
