It’s not my wedding


Winter is days away and honestly, we can’t wait! Alongside being able to wear comfortable clothes, enjoying a hot bowl of soup and transforming into a blanket burrito, another thing we love about winter is the fact that it is the season for weddings. Weddings are an important moment for the groom and the bride. As for the rest of the attendees, they will be immortalised in the photo album at least. All in all, grooming is very essential and we’re pretty sure everyone wants to look great. Here are some tips and tricks for men to assist them in looking nothing less than suave, despite them not being the groom.

Smelling good is a priority
For the entire event, or lifetime even, this is something you should definitely prioritise. They say that if you smell good, you feel good, and we agree. Make sure to use an antiperspirant deodorant to leave no room for sweat marks when you’re partying and having a good time dancing on the floor. In addition, you should also make sure that your perfume stands out and has a somewhat lighter but refreshing smell. A combo of vetiver and lavender could be an example of the ideal fragrance.

Pay a visit to your barber
Having a sophisticated haircut and trimmed beard is a part of looking good when attending weddings. Make sure to visit your barber at least a week before going to the event to get rid of all the split ends and those wispy little hair strands near your hairline. To make it look even better, depending on the type of hair you have, you may apply hair wax, hair pomade or even hair clay.

Get a manicure
Even if you’re not the groom, getting a manicure should definitely be something to add to your list if you haven’t already. They snip away cuticles and hangnails, get rid of dead skin and blisters, trim and round the nails. Most importantly, however, they moisturize your hands. Perhaps people will not only remember you only because of your outfit this time; they might just remember your smooth palms while shaking your hand, too.

Making sure your face is hydrated the entire time is extremely important. Failing to do so might result in a dry face with patches of dead skin, preventing you from looking as if you’re in your prime. A light moisturizer will stop your face from looking worn out and get rid of the redness and irritation when shaving. Make sure to get rid of the unavoidable extra shine that you’ll achieve during the wedding by carrying a skin-toning wipe. Using that will balance oil-production, cleanse the pores and hydrate your face, so it’s definitely a win-win situation.
