Don’t say “I don’t care”

One of the worst things you can do while planning your wedding is make statements that lead your partner to believe you have no interest in the outcome. Saying, “I don’t care,” when asked about a specific color scheme or a centerpiece tells your partner that you truly aren’t interested in preparing for your day.

While you may not be too worried about the difference between a shade of pink or if the tables are round or long, your partner wants you to be involved in the decision making. Rather than saying you don’t care, try using phrases like, “I don’t have a preference” or “I trust your judgement.” This way, your significant other feels like you are happy with whatever makes them happy, not indifferent.

Get ‘groom’ed

Looking and feeling great on your wedding day should be as important to you as it is to your fiance. Establishing a grooming routine in the days leading up to your wedding one less thing they’ll have to worry about. Plus, it will help you feel good as well! Whether you want to rock a full beard or be clean shaven, have a tan or toned arms, it’s always best to plan ahead in order to perfect your look for the big day. If you’re a guy who experiences hair loss, consider incorporating Finasteride into your regime for thicker locks on your wedding day.
