I got my husband a full on spa package the day before the wedding complete with massage, facial, manicure and pedicure!  And he actually enjoyed it…though I don’t think I can convince him to get a pedicure again…it was too ticklish for him.  =)  The manicure def does make a world of difference in pictures…all 5 of them that we took!  But he agreed that it was a good idea to have well groomed hands to show for it…afterall once they blow up the image…every little thing is noticeable!

MY Fiance will defiinitely be getting an eyebrow wax (which he has already done once and liked the results), pedicure and manicure before the wedding and probably before the engagement pictures too. I’m so happy he cares about this stuff! 🙂

My fella’s grooming will probably include a manicure, a straight razor shave, and possibly a back wax.

My good friend, a true manly man, used to work as a tile contractor.  The work would wreck his hands, so he enjoyed going to get manicures with his wife.  He thought the hand massage was great (and it didn’t hurt that the girls at the salon were easy on the eyes!)

Fiance is a manly man, works with his hands, puts together big machines and comes home with grease under his nails (which he NEVER cuts as often as he should)… has agreed to a manicure for the wedding (ok, ok, after much nagging and pleading).  Add him to the count!

So funny… I saw that the title of this post said "manscaping" and the first thing I thought was, "Wow, that is one brave bride to talk about what’s going on down south on her man…" haha!

While I’m here though. I should probably add my husband to the ever growing tally of men who have spruced up a bit for the wedding. He was a little resistant at first, so I took a picture of our hands with our rings on and said to him, "Now tell me that this wouldn’t be better looking if you got your hands cleaned up a bit." That did it! 

If you’re needing more ammo, my husband also got his hair cut at nice salon (and LOVED the scalp massage that came with it!), a warm lather shave, and a back massage. He didn’t complain and I didn’t mind spending the money on him. Hey, women have access to salon treats on a regular basis. Who’s to say that men should miss out on all the fun? 🙂

I’m going to get his eyebrows waxed to get some of the stray hairs off cause it just looks messy…and do a manicure for him myself

But in general, he really doesn’t care what I do and usually listens to all my requests!

He’s totally wrong – my hubby-to-be is very manly, and has been incredibly resistant to my attempts to groom him in the past.  BUT for the wedding, I asked (months and months ago) if he would do me a few things: wax his back, get a haircut, and get a manicure.

Tell him it’s for YOU!

Ouch – I don’t think my guy would wax for me.  However, the salon I go to has guys in all the time for manicures – my guy stopped by one evening when I was getting a pedicure and was stunned by it.  (It might be a cultural thing; they seem to be mostly hispanic.)  He asked one of the guys "What gives, dude?"  And he replied "Hey, the ladies don’t like it when your hands are all snaggly and rough."  Which is completely true, wedding or no.  Right?  My manicurist tells me that when she was in beauty school they had even more guys – probably most men don’t want to spend what a salon charges – and the beauty school does manicures for $4 without polish.

It probably helps if you tell him they’re not going to polish his nails!!

I asked my Fiance if he can do it for the wedding and there is a salon I go to that also does Man-icures too. He works on with his hands too, so they are pretty brutal looking too. My SIL asked my brother to do before their wedding and he did and he liked it (my brother is the manliest man I know).

You have one more vote here!

my Fiance is a nervous nail biter, but somehow resist the urge to bite them down to the quick, so his hands aren’t too bad….(unless he were to get very nervous right before the wedding).

 he is however, hooked on pedicures. I gave him a full blown one (foot soak, mask, massage, everything!) and he loved it sooo much that whenever i ask him what he wants for a special occasion, he asks for a pedicure.

 i do not doubt that he would go for a manicure if i were to suggest it bc he knows how good personal service can feel.
