Here Come the Boys! – Grooms Get Ready

At first you might think that there is not much for the groom to do before getting married (other than turn up) but actually the men still have to get their shirts on, ties done up, cufflinks fastened, shoes polished, flowers in the lapels, drinks to have (maybe a cigar) and, if you are in the kilt, there is the sporran to attach!  After all of that it’s time to get together with your friends and get off to the ceremony venue before the bride arrives.

Shoes, shirt and cufflinks to start with…

and now the tricky process of the tie or cravat…

I have lost count of the number of times I get asked about which side and which way up does the button-hole go – (up on the left lapel)…

Nearly there now, just add a watch chain or sporran, have a drink and get a friend to push you out of the door…

Finally… Here Come the Boys!
