With so much attention given to the bride and her look during the run up to the big day, male grooming can sometimes take a back seat. However, it’s important to remember that it’s a special day for you, as well as your bride. So as an Indian groom, you should take the time to look your best too.
These grooming tips for Indian grooms will help you whip yourself into shape, ready for your very special day.
What you wear is so important on your wedding day. Not only does it need to compliment your chosen theme, it must compliment your brides outfit too. If you’re opting for a traditional Indian wedding, then bold colours are the key to success. With your fiancé, decided upon a colour scheme that incorporates three complimentary colours. If you stick to these, you can guarantee your outfits will not clash.
It’s also important to buy an outfit they is well made and well fitted. It’s unlikely that you’ll find an outfit that fits you perfectly no matter where you go. So instead, splash out on a professional fitting session and have your clothes tailored to your needs. If you want to look sharp on the day, it’s definitely worth it.
With all those cameras around, it would be a complete disaster to have dry, tired or blemished skin on your big day. For a clean and spotless complexion, you’ll need to up your skincare routine for about a month prior to the wedding. Whilst this might sound time consuming, it’s really not.
Firstly, ensure you are moisturising every morning and evening, after you wake up and before you go to bed. Alongside this, you might also want to consider using a gentle exfoliator a couple of times a week to keep skin smooth and blemish free. Another important grooming tip is to ensure you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. No matter how much moisturiser you use, you can’t save dehydrated skin, so keep that h2o topped up.
Keep this routine up for a month prior to the day and you should have a fantastic complexion for all those wedding photos.
You’ve prepared your outfit, moisturised your skin but what about your hair? A sleek new haircut or beard trim, alongside a well groomed style is an absolute must for every Indian groom on their wedding day. If you don’t want to have any mishaps near the event, find a highly recommended barber or even a wedding hairstylist for the day. Leaving it to the last minute could end in disaster, so make sure you’re well prepared with a hairdresser you can trust.
It’s not just about the hair on your head, though. It can be a difficult choice deciding between a clean shaven face or light stubble, as unkempt facial hair can look messy. So long as your trim is perfectly even all the way across, a little bit of stubble is perfectly acceptable. Alternatively, if you have a long beard, why not invest in some quality beard oil to keep the frizz in check?
Remember. No matter how well groomed you are throughout the year, it’s always nice to take it that little bit further so you can look and feel great on your wedding day.
