Most people say that their wedding day is the second most important and special day in their life, the first most important and special being the day their child is born. Although I am not married I can only believe it is true. It makes sense, actually. One thing everyone hopes is to have healthy children and a successful marriage. That being said, the wedding day is crucial. People plan their wedding day on average about 6-7 months. Obviously, there are people who plan their wedding day a year and there are also impulsive people who one day decide to get married and the other day they actually get married. However, the average period of planning the wedding day is 6-7 months. It is a known fact that if you hold your wedding at a fancy hotel, or a fancy place in general, you must book the place a while before the wedding, as these fancy places are highly requested. Especially if the place is one you’ve always dreamed of.
We all know that when it comes to weddings, no matter the culture, it can be American, European, Indian, the bride gets all the attention. I believe it is fair for the bride to get all the attention since women are always underestimated when it comes to a competition or anything between men and women. It is a known fact that women are considered to be the “weaker sex” but they are also considered the “beautiful sex”. Fair enough, I guess.
However, having all the attention brought on you, brides have to prepare a lot more than grooms. They have to go to manicure, pedicure, waxing, not to mention that they also have to go to a makeup artist and a hairstylist. Not only that these are expensive but the stress brides have to go through is just overwhelming. Men don’t get so stressed since the attention is on the bride. There are, however, men who do prepare themselves for their wedding day. They don’t go to manicure, pedicure, waxing and all that but some men actually go to a hairstylist before the wedding.
Now, for those who have medium to long hair, it’s all good. They can go to a hairstylist and he or she will know what to do with them. Don’t picture crazy hairstyles like women’s but a hairstylist will know what to do with the groom’s hair so that it won’t look just like on any other day. For those who have short hair, however, there is a little problem. There is not much you can do with short hair. Actually, you can only get a new haircut. Anyway, I don’t suggest getting a new kind of haircut before your wedding day. New is good but my opinion is that on such occasions you should stick to your comfort zone. I suggest that you let your hair grow for a couple of months before the wedding day and then you can go to a hairstylist and you’ll see, a flat iron can do wonders.
Speaking of flat irons, it is, again, a known fact that flat irons damage your hair. However, if you use a flat iron once in a while it won’t create any damage. Many men straighten their hair with flat irons and I believe that if your wedding day is not an excuse to use a flat iron, then what day is? As I said before, using it once in a while won’t create any damage. There are women who use flat irons every single day. Yes, their hair is highly damaged but the good thing is that being a man, you can always just cut your hair really short and this way you get rid of the damaged hair. Obviously, the hair that is going to grow from now on, won’t be damaged. For women it’s not that easy. For women it’s a huge change to go from medium or long to short hair. When a woman cuts her hair so dramatically, it is like she is literally another women.
All in all, I believe that the luckiest men are the bald ones. They don’t have to worry about whether their hair looks good or not. They are practically care-free. However, if you are not bald I do suggest you to let your hair grow for a couple of months before the wedding day and go to a hairstylist. As I said, flat irons can do wonders if you give them something to work with.
