Tips For The Groom

This one is for the groom! Your wedding day is a whirlwind of moments that you’ll cherish forever. As the groom, there are a few simple tips that can make this special day even more memorable for you and your partner:

**1. Hold her hands during the ceremony**
On this day, every touch matters. When you stand at the altar, resist the urge to keep your hands in your pockets. Instead, reach out and hold her hands. It’s a small gesture that speaks volumes about your connection!

**2. Take your time with your first kiss**
Your first kiss as a married couple is a magical moment. Take a deep breath, savor it, and let your photographer capture the beauty of that instant. A little extra time ensures this memory will be perfectly preserved. As a rule of thumb, most photographers say the first kiss should last around 6 seconds!

**3. Greet your groomsmen warmly**
As your closest friends stand beside you, acknowledge their support with a hug or a handshake as they walk down the aisle. These are the people who have stood by you, and sharing a quick handshake, hug, or fist bump before the ceremony begins can set a positive tone for the ceremony.

**4. Spend as much time with your bride as possible**
The day of your wedding will fly by. Make a conscious effort to be present with your bride-to-be. You might have heard the tip of never leaving your bride’s side the entire night, which is true!

**5. Practice putting on your tie**
Ensure that you or one of your groomsmen knows how to tie your tie perfectly. It’s a small detail, but you would not believe how long it takes a group of guys to figure out how to tie a tie when no one knows! Plus, everyone wants to look sharp for the big day!

**6. Keep your pockets empty**
Prioritize simplicity. Leave your phone, wallet, and any bulky items behind. Opt instead for a clean look with perhaps a tissue tucked away for those inevitable happy tears. This also ensures living in the moment, as well as no items bulking or sticking out of pockets in pictures. This goes for groomsmen as well!

Your wedding day is a celebration of love and commitment. By following these tips, you can ensure that every moment is filled with joy, connection, and beautiful memories that will last a lifetime. Embrace the day with an open heart, and let the love you feel for each other shine through in every gesture and smile.
