Advice for the Guys! Grooms talk about their wedding day

by jaime on June 6, 2013

Today we get to hear from the guy’s side! Two grooms, two different stories but with the same theme and the same questions. In fact, one of the grooms is married to yesterday’s bride!

jon and lauren's wedding day

First, here’s Jon – Lauren’s husband.

1. What was the most amazing moment? The most amazing moment with Lauren was standing at the altar with her on our wedding day.

2. What would you do differently? What I would do differently is I would have not have one the fist pump before our kiss (Was kind of corny).

3. Did you freak out about anything on the wedding day? How did it turn out? I didn’t really freak out on our wedding day, I was surprisingly calm. The day turned out perfectly in my mind.

4. What advice would you give about the wedding day? Advice I would give is not let what is going on around you bother you. It is your day and you are marrying the one that you love and nothing will change that. It doesn’t have to be a perfect day and the only thing that matters is that everyone is there to watch your wedding and celebrate with you. The only important people are you and your spouse. Don’t waste time trying to talk to everyone, enjoy your day the way you want to and people will come to you and talk if they want to.

And here’s a few answers from one of Sarah’s good guy friends (his wife has asked that we keep them anonymous, and I’m more than happy to oblige!)

1. What was the most amazing moment? Certainly hard to pick a single most amazing moment, but I will go with the ceremony itself. Our ceremony was very nontraditional and very personal to us. A dear friend performed the ceremony and it was a lot of fun as well as being sincere and sweet. I enjoyed it very much, including the moment where I was so flustered that I couldn’t even repeat a line of the Ring Exchange even though the officiant said it twice!

2. What would you do differently? I don’t know that I would change anything. I loved every moment of the day from when I woke up until I went to sleep.

3. Did you freak out about anything on the wedding day? How did it turn out? Prep time was a little short, mainly because me and the groomsmen all went clay-pigeon shooting that morning and had so much fun doing it that we lost track of time. It turned out alright in the end but I could’ve used another 30 min to an hour to be more relaxed as we showered and got ready for the wedding.

4. What advice would you give about the wedding day? Remember that it’ll all work out in the end…you will be married to the love of your life, even if it rains a little bit or something doesn’t work out quite as you planned. Enjoy your day spending the time with people that love and care about you. And don’t forget to dance…a lot.

The guys may not be as verbose as the ladies, but I still love what they had to share – especially the most amazing moments! And clearly the guys are less issue-prone than we are (though that’s not really much of a surprise!). What do you think?

I love the “I wouldn’t have done the first pump” answer. Personally, I like the style of it. If its corny or not it can be cool if its your particular style. Be true to yourself!! Love this list!!
