wedding day itinerary for the groom [Page 1 of 3]

Wedding Day. All the hard work you and your bride have done culminating into the fabled 'Big Day'. The wait is over, and though you may have attended other weddings, how closely did you pay attention? GroomGroove.com has a step-by-step breakdown of how the day of your wedding could unfold.   We've compiled the chronological list with some commentary - and of course, your wedding could be completely different.

The day before - Relax, Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner

Relax - All Day

Shorts, flip flops, summertime. It's a beautiful summer day, and your family and friends are all arriving in town for your wedding. You can bet that you won't have much time to take it all in or to have quality conversations with everyone, but you should try hard. Because your bachelor party will not be held tonight (and don't think otherwise!), take this day to relax as much as possible. You'll find that wedding day itself will be a whirlwind of activity.

The Wedding Rehearsal - About one hour

In the early afternoon or evening, you are likely to have a rehearsal of the wedding ceremony itself with the officiant at the site of your wedding. This will significantly calm your nerves (or give you a case of the nerves if you didn't already have them) and the nerves of anyone that is called upon to read (or sing) during a religious ceremony. "When exactly do I sit down?" you will ask. The rehearsal will answer all of that. And if you have any doubts about any part of the ceremony, now is the time to ask.

The Rehearsal Dinner - About two hours

After the rehearsal, you will likely proceed to a rehearsal dinner. This can be as informal as Subway sandwiches, a backyard barbecue or as formal as a sit-down meal at a nice restaurant. Typically, your parents, your fiancée's parents, and the wedding party are invited. Some couples will also include close friends, additional family and out-of-town guests, but who ultimately attends is up to you. One of the great things about the rehearsal dinner is that is gives you the time to hang out with friends and family that you might not see that often. And by the way - it's typically the groom and his family that are tasked with planning wedding day.

Last Minute Jitters

- About 5 minutes at some point, probably at least once. It's ok. It's not a sign that you don't know what you're getting yourself into, but a sign that this is an infinitely more important contract than, say, signing up for a cell phone, and you're taking the commitment seriously. Your bride may be having last minute jitters as well. Take a big deep breath, and practice your wedding speech instead of worrying!

Wedding Speech Prep

- About 20 minutes at some point, hopefully at least twice. Read this article by clicking the link to learn more about your wedding speech .

Restless sleep - About 4.5 hours of it

Count on it.

The Day Of

Prep Time - About 2 hours in the morning

Your day will start with a rotten sleep the night before, because you'll be very nervous and possibly excited about what the day will bring. Start your day with breakfast and invite the groomsmen, best man and your dad to join you with room service at your hotel or at a breakfast joint. Now is the time to relax before things really get rolling. Don't throw on the tuxedo, then have breakfast. Maximize your time in jeans and flip flops. article continues...

Yep, the wedding day itself is always manic - even with good friends doing most of the organising for you - but it should also be enjoyable - And a rehearsal the day before is a good way of preparing your brain for what's to come. Thanks, Chris

Well I was searching the web for my name and came across this page. I can't help but to notice how people can post stupid things, especially how john (redneck) posted. Why would some one waste time to do this? And Ben RSA - Why don't you stick to being a loser instead of trying to give someone insight of life. you are probably an ignorant young teenager. So I'm putting you on cyber-restriction!!!!!! No internet for you, until you can grow up Ben RSA!!!!!!!

Oh, and AJ nice contribution. The Mendelsohn and Wagner songs are not only completely different in style and tune, you might have a very angry bride if those got confused ;)

I have just sent this site to my sister's fiance and his brother, who is the best man. Now I only wish y'all would do one for a MOH who has never been a part of a wedding! You are right though--the most important part of all of this is the celebration of the bride and grooms commitments to each other. Emphasis on celebration!!!!!! Nice job you guys.

Dear John (Redneck) - Stick to surfing the web - leave your long & boring comments where they belong - in your mind.

As a redneck i even realized that your spelling to your comment, was off. My Question to you is that how would you think some one would impose that your comment to AJ would affect anyone with your time and effort to proof read your comment to some one who is giving information at free will to help people like you find the response/ tips they need or ask your self this, why spend time out of your life to try to prove someone wrong when you can't even find why you even posted a comment in first place? I understand that text messages are not understood of what tone is used in some cases, so my tone to you isn't negative. It's just to inform you of an error of your own to help you better understand that wording makes the difference. I don't agree with it but it's how america functions now. America judges the book by it's cover. What's on the inside of that book remains a mystery only b/c some don't take the time to take a look inside that book which may be hiding something valuable that don't want the rest to know about. this tells me this, The mesage i'm trying to give is that if you are this book, how would you be presented?
Fri, Mar.14th 2008
Thanks for catching that, AJ! We've definitely got some well-rounded readers. We always appreciate your input and insight.

There is an error in this article. You speak of the "here comes the bride music" and state that it is called Wedding March by Felix Mendelsohn. As someone with a degree in music, I can tell you taht the traditional processional ("Here comes the bride") was written by Richard Wagner. Mendelsohn is the composer of the traditional recessional.
