Groom's Survival Guide

There's probably not too many guys that read this blog, but ladies, what a great opportunity to send a few hints over his way! This Men's Health article gives great practical advice for men who attend weddings. Here's a few of my favorite tips:
The ideal speech lasts 3 minutes or less. Segue from humorous, PG-rated stories into tender moments. "Now that's what I call love," or "And yet, she still said yes." Remember, it's not a roast or a bachelor party. Keep it clean. "Don't say anything you wouldn't be comfortable whispering into the bride's mother's ear," says Roney.

It's your best chance of wooing a bridesmaid, so ease on out there, Astaire. If your proficiency peaked in junior high, embrace slow songs or ones that revolve around jumping ("Shout"), simple hand movements ("YMCA"), headbanging ("You Shook Me All Night Long"), and hand grabbing ("We Are Family"), suggests Craig Michaels, author of Thirty to Wife: The Tell-All Groom's Guide to Weddings. And know your own limitations. "Never slide across the dance floor like you're stealing third," he says.

Don't. This is the most important day of your friend's life, it's not karaoke night at Bennigan's.



  • Karaoke machines are really good to play the music at weddings. Don't forget to make dancing as a part of your wedding.
