As a groom, you want to look and feel your best on your big day.  When we first arrive at the grooms prep the very first thing we will ask for is your grooms details box so we can get started with your flat lay. We recommend you get a big shoe box and fill it with absolutely everything you plan on wearing to the wedding, do this a couple of days beforehand. Just placing everything in the box is a great mental checklist to ensure you haven’t forgotten anything. Even if you’re getting ready in your own house, put together the grooms box as this will save us crucial time on the wedding. You don’t want to be running around the morning of the wedding trying to locate everything and ironing shirts and pocket squares – neither do we.

We also recommend keeping hold of your groomsman’s details, there’s often one guy who forgets to bring socks or a belt.  To help you gather the men’s necessities, we’ve created a short list of must-haves to have at the ready for the morning. Or check out the photos below to see what other grooms brought to their day.
