Every woman knows if you look good you feel good. This is true for guys too so good wedding day grooming is essential - a great haircut and a clean shave are a must.

For your hair, stick to a style you know suits you, such as a classic taper, layer cut or Caesar cut. Unless you normally sport very short hair, you’ll
want to get a cut a week before the wedding. Remember your wedding photos will be seen for decades, so don’t go for a radical new look or new trendy style today of all days. The morning of the wedding go in for a neck shave and sideburn touch up.

For your face, if a beard is part of your normal look, keep it — just make sure it’s professionally trimmed and shaped and that you’ve got a clean shave on the cheeks and neck. A shaved face will make you look well groomed and fresh. To feel extra special book a trim and shave at a high-end barber shop. A professional shave is a great way to kick off your wedding day.

Simply getting enough sleep, less alcohol, and more water in the weeks before your nuptials will work wonders for your skin. Plan the bachelor party several days before the wedding so you’re not tired, or worse still bleary eyed and hung over, on the day of the wedding. On the night before the big day, go to bed early and wake up in time to make sure you look well rested and have adequate time to shave and groom properly.

Getting married is a big deal for guys, but it’s even more important for the bride. Showing up with a clean shave and a great haircut is one of the best things you can do for her.
