Unforgettable Pre-Wedding Activities for Groomsmen and Grooms

Updated: Feb 21

Weddings are not only about the bride and her bridesmaids; the groom and his groomsmen also deserve some pre-wedding fun! To make the wedding day even more memorable, here are some exciting activities that groomsmen and grooms can enjoy before and on the big day.

1. Beer or whiskey tasting: Embark on a flavorful journey of craft spirits.  Go to a distillery tour to explore the world of craft beers or spirits. This activity allows the groom and his groomsmen to indulge in tastings, learn about the brewing or distilling process, and enjoy each other’s company. It’s an excellent way to unwind and celebrate before the wedding day.

2.  Explore Nature:  Go hiking, fishing, camping.  Soak in the great outdoors and spend some time together figuring out the challenging of life in nature.

3. Adventure Sports: For the adrenaline junkies, engaging in adventure sports like rock climbing, zip-lining, off-roading, or white-water rafting can be an exhilarating experience. These activities not only provide an adrenaline rush but also foster teamwork and camaraderie among the groomsmen and groom.

4. Barbecue or Cookout: A relaxed barbecue or cookout is a classic pre-wedding activity that allows everyone to bond over good food and drinks. Whether it’s a backyard gathering or a beachside picnic, grilling up some delicious food and sharing stories is a great way to create a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.

5. Poker Night: Organize a poker night for the groom and his groomsmen to test their luck and skill. Set up a friendly tournament with some snacks and drinks, and let the cards fly. It’s a fun way to spend quality time together, engage in friendly banter, and create memories that will be cherished for years to come.

6. Spa Day: Who says pampering is only for the bride and her bridesmaids? Treat the groom and his groomsmen to a day of relaxation and rejuvenation at a spa. From massages to facials, a spa day will help relieve any pre-wedding jitters and ensure everyone feels their best on the big day.

At Dove Nest Estate, we can offer all these amenities for the groom and groomsmen.  Pre-wedding activities here may include a day where the groom’s party may go hiking and fishing, return for a barbecue cookout, go out for an off-roading adventure, and then have poker night or spa treatments before the rehearsal dinner.

On the Wedding Day:

1. Morning Workout:Kickstart the wedding day with a group workout session. Whether it’s a jog, yoga, or a quick gym session, exercising together will energize the groom and groomsmen, helping them stay focused and calm throughout the day.

2. Tailoring Session:Make the wedding day even more special by arranging a tailoring session for the groom and his groomsmen. This allows them to get fitted for their suits or tuxedos, ensuring a perfect fit and a polished look.

3. Toast and Relaxation:Before the wedding ceremony, gather the groom and his groomsmen for a heartfelt toast. Raise a glass to celebrate the upcoming union, reminisce about the good times, and offer words of encouragement. This moment of reflection will help set a positive and relaxed tone for the rest of the day.

Conclusion: Pre-wedding activities for groomsmen and grooms are a wonderful way to strengthen bonds, create lasting memories, and alleviate any pre-wedding jitters. From outdoor adventures to relaxation and pampering, these activities ensure that the groom and his groomsmen have a fantastic time leading up to the wedding day. So, let the celebrations begin!
