As a groom, you want to look and feel your best on your big day. That being said, it's important to be prepared with a list of essential items you and your side of the bridal party will need come your wedding. Even if your memory – or your best man’s – tends to be quite sharp, the excitement and stress of your nuptials has been known to create many a forgetful groom/bride, so jotting down everything you and your groomsmen need when you have a clear head is recommended.

Even if you’re getting ready in your own house, you may accidentally run out the door without an item. 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 of your ceremony.

Formal attire (jacket, dress shirt, dress pants, ties, etc.)

Boxers/briefs/boxer-briefs

Dress shoes

Dress socks, plus a few extra pairs

Cuff links for all the men

Shaving kit(s) for touch-ups

Cologne/deodorant

All necessary hair products and tools (gels, sprays, etc.)

Toothbrush/toothpaste/floss

Breath mints

Small, portable clothing steamer

Handkerchief/tissues (just in case!)

Groom’s vows, plus a copy

Rings, plus their carrier (if that’s your – or best man’s – responsibility)

Each guy’s cellphone, plus headphones or speakers to listen to music

Snacks for all of the men, plus water bottles/canteens

A few beers or small shots of each guy’s preferred beverage (one or two each) to be had sparingly to calm the nerves

Marriage license (if that’s your responsibility) 

Once you’ve located these items and successfully plotted out their transportation, you should be ready to go! If you’re looking to elevate your wedding-day ensemble, consider these stylish & functional options from Tommy John and The Art of Shaving.
