A Groom's Guide to Getting Ready on His Wedding Day
The ladies have been making a day out of getting ready for the wedding for decades. Steal the idea and meet the boys preceremony for some serious bonding time over one of these activity ideas.
Get rid of any prewedding jitters by organizing a game of football (or baseball, or golf, or pool, or Mario Kart, for that matter) with your groomsmen. And in case it needs to be said, save the suits for afterward!
Hire a barber to come and give everyone a straight-razor shave (or a beard trim!) so you'll all be wedding-photo ready.
Order in a pizza from a favorite local joint to keep all your gents fueled for the big event to come.
Give a Toast
The ladies have their Champagne, so why shouldn't you enjoy your whiskey? Raise a glass to your crew for a toast—or two. Just remember the real party starts later.
Play a round of poker to pass the time.
Take a Stroll
Switch out dress shoes for some comfie kicks and go for a walk after suiting up. Bonus: Think of it as a photo op, if you have a second lensman for the wedding who can tag along.
