How To Dress For Your Big Day: Style Tips For The Groom To Be
By Robyn Bishop 

With so much emphasis on that particular white dress, it’s easy to forget that it’s equally important for the groom to also feel his best. It’s no secret that suit shopping can be a minefield. With so many different fits, styles and colours to choose from, seeking the perfect combination can be an overwhelming task. Tie the knot in style with some simple yet effective tips for getting it right. 

Take Your Time 

Once the date has been set, start shopping early to avoid a frantic rush. Whether you are buying or hiring your suit, always ensure that it’s ready for pick up at a week before the wedding, that way you’ll still have time for any last-minute tweaks.

The Age Of The Groomzilla

The stereotype has long played that the soon-to-be bride will build out an intense beauty, hair and fitness regime in the build-up to their wedding day, however it seems men are now getting in on the act. 

Beauty brand Procoal surveyed 1047 married men, to ask them about their pre-wedding arrangements, with some surprising results. To start with, 84% stated they personally plucked their eyebrows before getting married. A further 36% admitted to visiting a spa or salon in the month before their wedding day.
