Wedding-Day Duties for the Groom
Here are your top tasks for the morning of your big day…
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it couldn’t be more true than on the most important day of your life! You’ll be swept up in the whirlwind of activity today, and may not get a chance to sample the canapés, so fuel up with a hearty breakfast that will keep you going.
All eyes will be on you and your bride today, so make sure you’re looking your best. If possible, get a professional shave and tidy any stray eyebrow hairs, plus a manicure if you’re up for it! Make sure you apply antiperspirant deodorant and your favourite fragrance.
Keep track of the rings
You’ll hand these all-important pieces of jewellery over to your best man at some stage during the morning – make sure he’s on the ball and keeps them safe. Don’t forget to keep your speech notes and marriage certificate close as well.
Relax with mates
If time allows, kick back and enjoy some big-day bonding with your groomsmen on the morning of your wedding. Go for a refreshing swim at the beach, play a round of golf or backyard cricket, head to the barbershop for those clean shaves, or just enjoy breakfast together.
Send your bride a gift
Your bride will be busy with family, friends, hair and makeup on the morning of your wedding. It’s a nice idea to send her a little something to remind her that you are thinking of her and looking forward to spending the rest of your life together – perhaps a love note, a framed photo, jewellery or a bottle of Champagne to enjoy as she gets ready.
Be on time
Aim to arrive at your ceremony venue at least half an hour before it’s due to start. This way you can make sure everything is in order, greet your officiant and guests, and help seat the VIPs.
