In the lead up to the ceremony, it’s only natural for the nerves to kick in – after all this is one of the most important days of your life. But after your bride has arrived, and it’s time for you to recite your vows, a sense of calm takes over as Adam remembers as he chat to us about his Tasmanian winter wedding.

“The highlight of my day ended up being the ceremony itself, even though I had been nervous in the lead up to the wedding. When the time came, I actually enjoyed it as I was speaking my own words and was surrounded by close friends and family.”

Anthony's style

Whether it’s casually relaxed or a little more formal, match your outfit back to suit the theme of your wedding just as Anthony did for his Yarra Valley garden wedding.

“I wanted something very laid back and informal so we opted for suit pants with a vest and no jacket. It really suited the venue and the relaxed atmosphere of our wedding.”

Grooms, scrub up well for your wedding (an unforgettable event – so you want to look your absolute best!) by taking into account our best grooming tips below!

Manage your manes – It’s always good to freshen your hair and facial hair before your big day. Go all out, and have your hair done in a fashion you have never had it done in; in this case give yourself adequate time to get used to the end result. Or, if you love your current hair and facial hair style, don’t worry, you can keep it. A treatment or trim at the barber is enough to make you, kind of, brand new!

Neaten your nails – Nicely trimmed nails aren’t only viewed as pleasing, but most importantly, they are clean! Personal hygiene on your wedding day is a must. Believe it or not, a fair amount of men do get occasional manicures, and they are relaxing, as they give you time out! There are spa centres around that offer manicures if you don’t want to set foot in a nail salon.

Face a facial – Yes, men have facials too! There is nothing to be ashamed of. See a beauty therapist who will take care of your any blemishes whilst cleaning and toning your skin for a more healthy-looking and handsome face.

Polish your pearly whites – Don’t forget that you’ll naturally be smiling a great deal at your wedding, therefore your teeth will definitely be on show! Has it been a while since your last dentist visit? Book a dentist appointment a week before your wedding so you can get a thorough clean and polish!
