Thoughtful things the Groom Needs to Do on the Wedding Day


Simple touches

Consider sending your bride a wedding day gift along with a heartfelt handwritten note on the morning of your wedding day.

Not only will this be something special to keep for her, but the photographer will be able to capture some stunning shots of the emotion as she opens and reads your letter. Sometimes expressing yourself by putting pen to paper might not come naturally, but this is a truly thoughtful way to show your feelings before the big day.


Show up with a smile

There’s no better way to welcome your new bride into the ceremony room than with a smile on your face. Whether you’re planning on having a wedding at home or abroad, large or small, it’s important to get your emotions under control as the bride walks in ready for the all important first look photo that your photographer will no doubt want to catch.

But, if you’re going to be among family and friends on your wedding day, then you have to have a strong head on your shoulders. Whilst tearful emotions are a very sweet sentiment, don’t be ‘that groom’ who derails the ceremony by not being able to make it through the vows because of tears. Focus on being the calming presence that everyone needs and support your bride by greeting her with a smile as she walks in.


Treat your hands

Another thoughtful thing the groom can do on his wedding day is take the time for a manicure. We are not talking about brightly colored nail polish at the nail salon, but in the lead up to the big day, the groom should look to moisturize his hands, take care of his cuticles and cut his nails.

This is probably one of the few days that a groom’s hands will be exclusively photographed, so it’s a thoughtful gesture and one that will not be overlooked by the bride. After all, there will be much hand holding and handshakes involved in your special day!



There’s no denying that wedding planning can be stressful. But, the good news is now you are armed with some thoughtful things that the groom should do on the wedding day, so you can make the day even more special.

Make sure that you take a moment to manicure those nails, spend time crafting a handwritten note and make sure that you greet the bride with a smile, and you’ll be one step closer to experiencing a luxury wedding to remember.
