With just a few weeks until the big day, you’re probably feeling the pressure to get your groom looking (and feeling!) his best. After all, he’s going to be in front of friends and family on your wedding day – it’s not easy. But don’t fret! That doesn’t mean that you have to ditch your best man or maid of honor and take on their duties instead. Instead, it means you have an opportunity to support and love on your partner while they get ready to say “I do.”
Preparing your groom for your wedding day is one of the most important tasks you will undertake as a couple prepping for marriage. A groom who feels confident, secure, and excited about marrying you is sure to make for a happy ceremony. Read on for way more insight into how you can get your groom ready for the big day!
Ask your partner what makes him feel comfortable.
There’s a lot of pressure to take charge of the groom’s-men-dition months before your wedding. And while it’s important to be involved in your partner’s wedding plans, it’s also critical to respect the fact that your groom has been living in his own world for the past few months. And now that he’s getting married and has been invited into your world, his stress levels are sure to be on high.
It’s essential that you take the time to ask your partner what makes him feel comfortable – and then do your best to make that happen. This is a great way to start the conversation about wedding planning while also reinforcing that you want your groom to feel at ease at all times.
Assign someone to be your groom’s handler.
If you’re in charge of your groom’s grooming, then you should assign someone to be his groom’s handler. Yes, that’s a real thing! It’s important that you make sure your groom is relaxed, happy, and hydrated throughout the wedding day. If he’s feeling stressed, he’s not going to enjoy the wedding day. Also, it’s not good for your groom to be clutching a water bottle for eight hours.
Having someone to make sure your groom always has a full glass of water, a snack, or something to take his mind of the day off is essential. This can be a family member looking out for your partner or a bridesmaid. Whoever you assign to be groom’s handler should be available all day to offer water or snacks and keep an eye on your partner.
Help your groom pick an outfit he’ll love.
It’s important that your groom feel comfortable in his outfit on the wedding day. But groom’s often feel a lot of pressure to wear a tuxedo and to do a “manly” wedding. A lot of grooms end up feeling uncomfortable in their outfits because they don’t feel like they’re doing enough to support their significant other.
Help your groom pick an outfit that feels confident while still reflecting his personality. If he’s really worried about the idea of wearing a tuxedo, then offer to help him find a more casual option. If a “manly” wedding isn’t his style, then encourage him to wear something that makes him feel great. Your groom’s outfit should reflect who he is and his personality. It’s not about doing a “manly” wedding or anything else – it’s about doing something that makes him feel great.
Help your groom get a haircut and shave.
Your groom is probably feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment. Between picking out a suit, booking travel, picking a caterer, and managing his other wedding duties, it’s no surprise that your partner is feeling a little stressed! Help your groom get a haircut and shave to put him at ease for the wedding day.
Studies show that a fresh haircut and shave can make you feel more alert, confident, and happy. So if your groom is feeling a little overwhelmed, offer to take him to the salon so he can get a haircut and shave. This is a great way to take some of the pressure off your partner!
Show up early to support your partner.
Your groom is probably feeling a bit nervous on the day of the wedding. He’s getting ready to marry the love of his life – it’s understandable if he’s feeling a little anxious! Make sure you show up early to support your partner by playing off groom’s nerves.
Maybe crack some jokes or even prep him for his vows by helping him practice them. If you are worried about your groom’s nerves getting to be too much, then you can offer to help him meditate or do some breathing exercises. This is a great way to practice self-care with your groom on his big day.
Help him practice his vows – or have someone help him rehearse.
If your groom is feeling a bit nervous about his vows, then you can help him practice them. If you are worried about your groom being able to come up with vows that he is confident with, then you can offer to help him come up with vows that he is happy with.
You can also help him practice his vows so that he is happy and confident with them on the big day. This is a great way to help your groom feel confident and ready to marry you with his vows!

You can organize a bachelor party for your groom where his friends help him feel relaxed and have fun. You can also plan a rehearsal dinner so that the groom can spend more time with your friends.
