Congratulations! You've officially found the woman of your dreams and she's agreed to be your wife. But before you say "I do," there are a few things you need to do. Things like getting a nice haircut, getting your teeth cleaned, and maybe even exfoliating. Yes, I said exfoliating. I know it sounds weird, but trust me: if you want to look your best on your wedding day, this is one small step that will go a long way toward helping you look more than just handsome—you'll look downright dashing.
Take care of your feet.
The feet are often neglected, but they're an important part of your grooming routine. There's no need to go overboard on the pedicure--a simple wash and moisturise will do the trick if you're not planning to wear open-toed shoes.
Wash them daily with warm water and soap, rinsing thoroughly before applying a thick layer of moisturiser (or lotion) from the ankle up towards your toes. If you have sensitive skin that has the tendency to get dry, try using a pumice stone on dry patches before massaging with the lotion; this will help remove dead skin cells without irritating your feet any further.
Manicure your nails.
You are going to want to get a manicure two weeks before the big day. Make sure that you are relaxed and comfortable when getting your nails done, as this will help with any anxiety that may come up during the process. Ask for your nails to be shaped and filed, not polished; this will make it easier for them to break off later on if they need some last-minute touchups before the wedding day arrives. A French manicure is also an option if you don't want anything too flashy - just keep in mind that some people might think it's tacky, so choose wisely.
Get your hair trimmed.
If you have short hair, go for a trim. If you have long hair, get it trimmed as well. You don't want to look like an unkempt mess on your wedding day.
If your stylist suggests a haircut that's not flattering to your face shape (for example, if they suggest a shorter length than what would suitably complement your features), politely decline and move on and find someone who knows what they're doing. Your hairstylist should be able to tell whether their recommended style will work with the shape of your head without much trouble at all--so if they don't seem confident in their recommendations when asked about them by clients, find another salon before making any decisions about how much off the top should be cut off.
Get a mini facial.
This is a great way to get your skin in tip-top shape for the big day. You can do it at home, or find a professional to do it for you but just make sure the professional is doing something tailored to your skin type! Some examples of mini-facials include:
A cleansing facial treatment (removes dirt and oil from pores)
A deep pore cleansing treatment (removes blackheads)
Deodorize your clothes.
The first thing to do is deodorize your clothes. You don't want to be the guy who smells like onions and beer on your wedding day, so wash them regularly and use a deodorant (or at least dry-clean anything that can't be washed).
Finally, make sure you eat fresh fruit or drink plenty of water throughout the day; these things help keep your body healthy and prevent bloating which could lead to embarrassing moments during the ceremony.
Give yourself the best chance at looking great on your big day.
So there you have it. It's not easy being a man, but it's worth it. We've taken care of all the grooming for you so that you can concentrate on other things like losing weight or making sure your parents are happy at the wedding. All that's left for you to do now is take some time out and enjoy yourself before that big day comes around!
