Getting married is a huge life decision, and it can be overwhelming to say the least. While a lot of the focus is usually on the bride, it is important that the groom takes an active part in the big day. Consider these ten ways to be a groom that every bride would be happy to call her own.

1. Coordinate Your Look

Your fashion choices on your wedding day will be preserved for years to come. Make sure that you choose a look that is timeless and classic. You want to coordinate with the colors your bride has chosen for the big day, so make sure that you consult with her before picking out your tux and accessories.

2. Choose Meaningful Accessories

There are so many ways to make your wedding day look special. For example, you can accessorize with things that are meaningful to you. Maybe you have a watch that your dad gave you as a graduation gift. Perhaps you have a favorite tie bar that your fiance gave you for your birthday. These simple touches can make your look really pop.

3. Get Involved With Wedding Planning

Many grooms feel like once the engagement rings are picked out, their part of wedding planning is over. However, it is only just beginning! While your bride may already have ideas of what she wants for her wedding day, she will likely want to hear your personal input. When the two of you work together to curate a special day, it can be something that you look back on with fond memories.

4. Prioritize Your Bride’s Happiness

Because you love your bride so much, you likely want her to have everything she has dreamed of on her wedding day. Make sure that you prioritize her happiness, and help her get the things that are really meaningful and important to her.

5. Style Your Hair

Most women put much more thought into how they will style their hair for a wedding than men. However, you should have a plan to have a suave cut and style on your wedding day. You can try out a practice run a few months ahead of time to make sure you like it.

6. Write a Letter to Your Bride

One of the most special things that you can do on your wedding day is to write a letter to your wife. Let her know how much you love and appreciate her. This is something that she will treasure for her whole life.

7. Show Your Family Your Appreciation

If your family is taking a big part in your wedding day, make sure that you show them your appreciation. You can buy small gifts for your parents and other family members who have helped you throughout the years. This is a great way to help them feel included.

8. Take the Rehearsal Seriously

While a wedding rehearsal may not be the most fun thing to do, it is important for everyone involved. Make sure that you (and your groomsmen) take the event seriously. The last thing you want is for someone to not know their part on the big day.

9. Smile Throughout the Day

While you will likely be beaming at your bride all day, it is important to be conscious of your facial expressions. There will likely be plenty of candid shots taken of you throughout the day, so make sure that you are smiling at the right times. This will ensure you have a great wedding album at the end!

10. Surprise Your Bride

A small surprise gift for your bride on your wedding day can be so special. Something as simple as a new bracelet or earrings can be a great way to show how excited you are to marry your bride.
When you keep these simple tips in mind, you can be the groom that every bride dreams of!
