The Groom’s checklist
By Jaime Gutierrez
Here, a few to-dos you’ll handle on your journey from fiancé to husband.
1 YEAR BEFORE: CHOSSE GROOMSMEN. Choose which or your friend’s gets elevated to best-man status.
9 MONTHS BEFORE: REGISTER FOR STUFF. What to stock up on for your future home? Doing it together is a must.
8 MONTHS BEFORE: START GETTING FIT. You don’t have to get in triathlon shape, but you might want to star better exercise and eating habits about now.
6 MONTHS BEFORE: PICK UP YOUR WEDDING WEAR. Find a Suit or Tux you love, and allow enough time to get it tailored.
4 MONTHS BEFORE: PLAN YOUR HONEYMOON. This one is pretty self-explanatory.
2 MONTHS BEFORE: WRITE YOUR VOWS. Writer’s block is real.
1 MONTH BEFORE: BUY GROOMSMEN GIFTS. Don’t forget a little something to thank them.
1 WEEK BEFORE: PICK UP YOUR TUX. Try on the tuxes with your groomsmen to make sure they fit perfectly.
Name brands available include MICHAEL KORS, RALPH LAUREN, CALVIN KLEIN, IKE BEHAR, PERRI ELLIS, JOSEPH ABBOUD, and FLORSHEIM SHOES… and many more.
