Fit is everything.“ You don't want to wear a suit or tuxedo that doesn't fit or looks awkward on you and your groomsmen. Look as sharp as you possibly can. Your bride will appreciate you for it.

• Register your wedding with a mens' formal wear specialist. • Make sure your party is aware of a deposit or partial payment due at the time of the fitting. • Don't order a suit from a catalog. If you can't see the suit or feel the fabric, you may be disappointed with what you receive.


HAIR “Get a haircut about one week prior to the wedding,” suggests Kelly Harding at Hair International Day Spa and Salon. NOSE Give a thought to the small details, like trimming nose hairs for all those closeups. FACIAL HAIR Get goatees, beards or moustaches neatly trimmed, or cleanly shaved off if your preferred look is smooth skin.“ Make sure your neck, sideburns, and all facial hair is cleaned up,” says Harding. “If you get a 5 o’clock shadow and the wedding is later in the day, shave again.” EYEBROWS Keeping the eyebrows clean and neat (not shaped, unless desired) can give a man a neater, more open face for a day of being in the spotlight.
