In the age of over-the-top rom-coms that have set the bar for romance really, really high, our dear grooms have had a hard time topping the stuff their brides may have secretly wanted for their big day too. Now, unlike Lily and Marshall’s uber-romantic “wedding before the wedding” in How I Met Your Mother, you can rest assured for that’s not the scale your would-be-wife wishes you to reach. But, some teeny-tiny gestures, however, are in order, don’t you think? So, this one goes out to all the grooms reading this – make the wedding day all the more special for your SO by considering the following easy-to-carry-out ideas. Take it from us women, these things are going to be etched in our memory, forever. Read, read.

A few days before the D-day, sit down, write everything you feel for the woman you’re about to marry, and get it delivered via a nephew or niece on the day of the wedding to her. There wouldn’t be a better start to the most important day of you two’s lives together.
This, and how she’s doing amidst all the mayhem! It’s easy to lose track of things throughout the pujas, attending guests, salon appointments, and what not. The moment you get a chance, send her a few cutesy Whatsappramblings and make her smile.

Now, wouldn’t that be an amazing idea! Make her day by kick starting it with a bunch of her favorite roses or lilies that would commemorate what’s in store for the day. PS: nothing’s going to make her girlfriends more jealous!

Unless fasting the entire day is a requisite for both you as well as your bride (some clans follow this ritual), make sure that you remind her to stay satiated and healthy throughout the day. It is okay if you guys can’t eat together; remind her sister or her best friend to keep a check!
You are, after all, marrying her entire family! Thank them for being an incredible set of people, and how you’re so ecstatict to finally be a part of their clan. Believe us, if this doesn’t make your bride feel proud of her choice for a life partner, nothing else does.

It may be bad luck in many communities to see each other before the ceremony, but nothing calms your nerves and makes your pre-wedding jitters numb like seeing her before anyone else does.
