Grooms are typically forgotten about the day of the wedding. The main focus is and should be on the bride. However, there is more for the groom than just showing up. The day of the wedding is very stressful and full of to-dos. We suggest that the grooms put together an overnight bag and stuff it in the car that will be at the wedding (if the scenario permits). This way, all of the groom’s personal items will be at the wedding and reception.
Groom’s Personal Checklist
- Wedding rings
- Vows – What the groom says to the bride during the ceremony if the bridal couple will say your own. This is more than saying ‘I Do’ or ‘I Will’
- Toasts – If the groom wants to offer a toast to his bride or to the bridal couple’s guests at the wedding reception.
- Wallet (Driver’s license, Credit Cards)
- Toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, breath mints
- Tuxedo or suit (with all components such as a tie, jacket, vest, shirt, pants, cummerbund, belt, etc)
- Shoes, socks, underwear (with extra pairs)
- Razor (or electric shaver) and shaving cream
- Medications (Tums is also nice to have as a back-up)
- contact lenses or glasses (spare sets also recommended)
- Cash (don’t forget about tipping wedding services)
- Hair products such as gel, comb, hair spray
