Do make sure you get yourself regularly shaved in time for all the marriage parties. Get it done by a professional instead of doing it yourself to avoid last-minute nicks, cuts and unsatisfactory results. Don’t take any chances.

Plus letting someone else do the work for you will give you much-needed time to relax and unwind.

If you like keeping a beard or a moustache, make sure it’s properly trimmed and perfectly maintained to avoid a clumsy style later. Remember that it’s perfectly okay to pay a little extra for this and get it sorted. It is one of the most essential grooming tips one can give you. No matter which you choose, the idea is to go for a chiselled look - clean shave or not, an unkempt face wouldn't look half as attractive as you would otherwise. 

2. Skin tales

Do take care of your skin properly and don’t neglect it. You really don’t want to have to deal with unwanted pimples, dark circles, uneven skin tone, dry skin and more in your wedding pictures. If you’re not sure where to start with this set of grooming tips and have had a recurring medical problem such as excessively dry skin, visit a skin specialist and ask for advice.

Don’t wait until much later to avoid unnecessary problems and get started on this as soon as you can. Your skin tells a lot of how you're feeling on the inside. So eating a healthy diet and including a lot of water intake in all daily diet should not just be a regime you follow close to your wedding day, rather turn it into a life long habit if you want to have a glowing skin both inside and out. 

3. Work out

Watch what you eat, work out regularly and try to be consistent with your plans months before the wedding.

If you suffer from stained teeth or want your teeth to look whiter in your pictures, make sure you visit the dentist early for a few teeth whitening sessions. Ask for options and figure out which plan works best for you.

Do floss regularly and avoid smoking and too much caffeine. Little things will go a long way in making you look and feel good. The prettier the teeth the prettier the smile they say and we agree!

5. Keep stress at bay

Do get enough sleep. This is basic but very important. One of the best ways to look your best is to unwind, relax, not be stressed out and sleep enough. Do things that help you such as playing squash with your friends, watching a movie, going for short trips and spending more time with your closest friends and loved ones.

Keep some time to check up on your groom outfit in complete detail. Try the outfit the first time and also after all alterations are done. In fact, try it again days before the big day to ensure that your look, cut, shape and style are absolute perfections to your current form. Not doing this may lead to an ill-fitting outfit, that would lead you to look uncomfortable and bad on your wedding.

In fact, these are a common set of grooming tips that grooms often receive from their besties:

* Check whether your shirt and jacket flaunt your form. The buttons should not be tight around your chest. It should not be too loose either.

* Check your trousers - are they right size in length and around the waist? Is the style good for you?

* Check your Sherwani dress - the ease with which you're able to don it

* Check your Pyjamas, especially if they're a little snug around the seat.

7. Find the right groom accessories too
