Sarah and Luis tied the knot in a gorgeous white tie wedding on their 7-year anniversary (which they refer to as their “7-year hitch”).

Today's tip for the groom is to remember to eat and enjoy your wedding day! Too often the men forget to take care of themselves on their wedding day. You can easily accomplish this by pre-ordering lunch if you're in a hotel through In Room Dining or have one of your groomsmen pick up sandwiches and snacks. Also remember to stay hydrated as you'll most likely have a night of heavy drinking once you've said "I Do."
And as a reminder, here are some of the past tips we've put together for grooms:
- Pack an extra dress shirt
- Remember to take care of your skin leading up to your ceremony
- Learn how to tie a bow tie
- Write a letter to your significant other
