Marriage is always a momentous event, whether if it’s lavish or modest, heterosexual or same-sex. It’s a day where tears fall and spirits rise. It’s a day that couples look forward to the most, especially on the part of the bride.

Marriage is always a momentous event, whether if it’s lavish or modest, heterosexual or same-sex. It’s a day where tears fall and spirits rise. It’s a day that couples look forward to the most, especially on the part of the bride.

But some grooms (not all) don’t have a clue as to how weddings work, apart from proposing. So to help those grooms, here are a few tips:

1. Please, Show Up Sober
Go ahead, and have fun at your bachelor party, but the morning of, you want to be at your best. Even if the groom is planning to give flasks as gifts for the groomsmen, the groom should abstain; you don’t want to blunder your vows or blur the happy memories of the day.  

2. Assist in the Preparations and Planning
Speaking of a good start to married life, be part of the planning for your wedding. Good teamwork and synergy between a couple are important from the start. Don’t expect your partners to do all the work.  

3. Write Down the Speeches and Vows
Grooms always, always, always need to write down their vows and any thoughtful messages to their partners. It doesn’t matter if the groom is a genius with a memory of an elephant; the pressure and stress you encounter on the wedding day can make anyone forget their lines.

On top of that, wedding etiquette dictates that the couple must also include in their speech a “thank you” message to those who’ve helped them with the wedding, to their sponsors, to their dearest family and friends, and to the rest of their guests in general. Big weddings may mean a long list of people to thank.

So in order to avoid fumbling through the words, grooms need to prepare, practice, and pen their vows beforehand so that they can deliver their vows, speeches, and messages smoothly.

4. Stay Calm and Get Married
It’s normal for grooms to feel nervous before and during a wedding. However, that doesn’t mean they should cave in to the pressure and panic. Decisions made when in this state of mind are often regrettable ones.

Among the usual tips to remain calm, the sweetest one is for grooms to keep being honest with their partners. Strong relationships are built on sincere communication. Talking is a great way for couples to overcome any pressure that they get from the event.

Say Goodbye to the Single Life
For most people, a wedding marks the end of their single life and signals the start of a beautiful companionship. Grooms who still have some attachments to their lifestyle may get amazed at how pleasant it is to share life with someone they love.

So everything that leads to the wedding, every plan and change, can prepare grooms for what’s to come as a married person. And though marriages today are different, one thing remains the same: Married life needs teamwork.
