Grooming the Groom: A Guide to Pampering

Let’s face it, guys aren’t usually the first to admit to wanting a makeover, which is why it would be a wonderful gift from your bride-to-be on your big day. You might be content with a five o’clock shadow and tussled bedhead, but that look won’t fly with your future Mrs. So, if you’re lost on how to go about pre-wedding pampering, look no further! San Antonio-based wedding planner Ansonya Burke from Principles in Action a San Antonio Wedding Planner has a few suggestions on how to get gussied up for your sweetheart.

The biggest problem guys face in terms of grooming on their big day is proper skin care. If you want blemish-free skin, consider having some facial treatments in the months before. There’s nothing worse than a wedding day break-out, so be sure not to try any new products leading up to the big day without having previously used them.

Are your eyebrows starting to resemble Ugly Betty’s or one of the cavemen from the Geico commercials? Consider some plucking and don’t be afraid to get yourself cleaned up professionally by an eyebrow stylist. Just remember not to overdo it, over-tweezing is sometimes worse than not tweezing at all!

Unfortunately hair creeps up in the most unsightly places: ear, nose, chin, etc, therefore grooms should try to get rid of any overgrown ear and nose hair, pronto. Look your best by treating yourself to some pre-wedding pampering at the barber. There’s nothing better than getting a professional close shave that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth and kissable.

Self conscious about your smile? Don’t overlook your teeth! Remember to get your chompers whitened with some advanced whitening procedures, or simply start at home with over-the-counter Crest Whitestrips!

Don’t be afraid to get a manicure or pedicure, you’ll be surprised by how much some carefully clipped fingers and toes makes a difference in handshakes and dance moves.

All grooms are different and require a personalized pampering plan–whether you’re craving luxurious spa treatments and massages or a simple at home shave, remember to give yourself plenty of time to relax and reflect in the moments before you are a married man!
