My fh has agreed to a "man"icure for the wedding, but I’ve tried to get him to do it sooner and he won’t — he said only for the wedding because of the pictures.

I didn’t request it, but my guy volunteered for our co-ed wedding shower. He said his hands felt really good afterwards (they massage them too) and he wishes he would have done it for our wedding photos. He worked on cars for a living at that time, so no matter how good he was to his hands they were pretty rough looking. Oh, and we ended up getting our nails done together again for our one year anniversary. To him it was all about feeling good about his hands and not worrying about looking girly or whatever the stereotype out there seems to be.

Hope this helps!

I asked my FH to get a manicure and he said yes. 

He is going with his groomsmen to a guy only salon where they will all have straight razor shaves and my guy will get a manicure.

depending on where you are located, there are some co-ed salons that specialize in services for men and ladies.

my FI agreed to a pedicure a while ago – a manicure is brilliant!  i’m going to suggest it for the wedding.  FI does, however, scrub his hands with exfoliant and is now addicted to coconut body butter – his hands are much smoother and softer.

My FI is a MANLY MANS MAN – I asked him to "try" a manicure and he agreed to go – once the manicurist started to massage his hands he was hooked – he asked why I didnt tell him sooner that it felt so good and they gave a free hand massage?  He did not go for the clear nail polish just a good cleaning – he was so pleased with the experience he is hinting about going again before the next fancy event.

I also asked my FI and he agreed to do it for the wedding as well.  He works with his hands daily and with cars as a hobby — his hards are harsh!

This post cracks me up. Come to think if it, my man needs a little trimmin’ ’round the edges too. I’m gonna ask my FI now if he’ll do some manscaping now!

FI says no to salon manicure, but will allow me to do it for him. Excellent compromise!

He’s a full fledged hunting, fishing kind of dude and the kind of dude that will have a manicure before the big day.

My FI doesn’t know it yet but he is going to get a mani, pedi, facial, profesh haircut and some waxin’ for his brows. 🙂

My coworker’s husband goes once a month with her to get a mani and a pedi. He loves them.

My fiance is a nail-biter too. I have dreams of him getting a mani for before the wedding for those obligatory hand shots, but I’ll probably do it for it him rather than send him to a salon.
