3 Simple Tips for a Stress-Free Wedding Season


Wedding Season

Who doesn’t love a good party? We sure do. But between all the planning and prep, there’s one thing you shouldn’t skip: looking your absolute best on the big day. After all, those wedding photos are forever, and trust us, you don’t want to be cringing years down the line.

With years of experience hosting groomsmen parties, we’ve perfected the art of pre-wedding pampering, taking the stress out of looking sharp for your special occasions.

Forget the hassle of coordinating multiple appointments at different locations. We’ve got you covered. Simply shoot us an email, and let us handle the rest. Whether you prefer to gather the gang at our shop for a laid-back grooming session complete with quality cuts, shaves, and cold drinks, or you’d like us to bring the barbershop experience to you. On-site, we’ve got the expertise and flexibility to accommodate your needs. You’ve got options.

For now, here’s 3 incredibly simple things to help your wedding season go smoothly.

Fool Proof

1. Book Early!

We’re not just talking about your haircut. Though you can call our shop and book up to 6 weeks in advance, even if you’re only booking for yourself. Or you could book online up to 2 weeks in advance. We’re talking about the other time-sensitive details. Book your hotel. Make those reservations. Order that gift. Some people call this the Crock-pot method – “set it and forget it”. We like to call this the “Don’t play yourself technique”. Just make sure you’ve added it to the calendar and you’ve peeped the cancellation policies and you’re good.

2. Secure Your Suit.

Gentlemen, listen up. We’ve seen it all, and trust us when we say you don’t want to leave suit prep to the last minute. Plan ahead and have your suit pressed or ready the week of the wedding—not the day of. Again, this is wedding and graduation season. You’re not the only one getting their event wear tailored and dry cleaned. Avoid the unnecessary stress of last-minute alterations or forgotten details. Thank us later.

3. Walk It Out.

Let’s not drop the ball on footwear. No, we’re not going to tell you that you can’t wear Vans (though you probably shouldn’t). This is a warning. Break those bad boys in before you try to two-step to Texas Hold ‘Em in front of everybody. Whether you’re bring out the dress shoes or the “fancy boots”, a special occasion is not the day to break them in for the first time. Your feet deserve better. You deserve better. Here’s a great guide on how to safely break in some new shoes.

Happily Ever After

Folks, we know you’ve got a lot on your plate. Don’t let the chaos of party planning and pre-wedding nerves get the best of you. Follow these three simple tips, and we guarantee you’ll breeze through wedding season like a pro. After all, love is in the air, and there’s no room for stress when you’re celebrating the happiest day of your life. So, take a deep breath and relax – We’ve got your back, brother.
