  • Grooming
    • Smile: Consider getting your teeth whitened, and/or skipping out on the coffee and tea several weeks before the big day.
    • Hair: Get your hair cut, but NOT the day before the wedding. You want to look clean and fresh, and the ample time in between your hair appointment and wedding should allow fo any mishaps to be combed over.
    • Face: Consider a skincare routine. The bride isn’t the only one who should focus on having a clear face on you guys’s special day.
    • Hydrate: Not only will it keep any accidents from occurring in regard to dehydration, but water does amazing things for your skin when consumed often and frequently.
  • Dress
    • Suit: Get a color that you feel confident in and that will also compliment the theme of your wedding. Also, make sure that it is tailored to perfection. A well-fitted suit looks phenomenal in photographs and will make you exude confidence.
    • Accessorize: Think of accessories as a way to bring out your personality on your big day. A sleek watch or classic jewelry, always adds a touch of character to your overall ensemble.
  • Practice
    • Vows: Say them out loud to get the hang of what you wrote down. This way you’ll be able to edit out any unwanted stumbles or unnecessary information.
    • Speech: it’s gonna happen, and it’ll happen fast. Prepare and practice your speech so you can continue on celebrating without any mishaps.
    • Poses: Your bride isn’t the only one that has to be photogenic. Practice posing and facial expressions. We want you to be comfortable in front of the camera because you and your partner will feed off of each other’s energy.
