My fh has been shaving his down recently. I like it better than the beard cause his beard was a little patchy. As weird as it sounds I can’t have him with a clean shave cause then we look about 17-18. If he has facial hair we at least look 21

I doubt Fiance will be clean shaven, even though I really like it, because he prefers how he looks with a beard. He will probably just trim it short. As long as it’s somewhat groomed…

Darling Husband went to a barber the day before our wedding and had it professionally edged and trimmed. At the time he favoured the ‘viking look’, but he wanted to look a little more ‘kempt’ for our big day (though he opted to style his hair down on our wedding day) 🙂

I’ve included a before and after:

I think it is totally reasonable to ask him to have it trimmed nicely.  I wouldn’t ask him to shave it or something though.

Pretty sure Fiance plans to go to the barber the day before and have his beard tidied up, as he does with all important events and appointments.

My husband has gone true “live free or die” here in New Hampshire and has grown out his beard to about 4-5 inches, which I hate. However, luckily for our wedding he had it trimmed, shaped, and groomed to roughly an inch long. It looked fantastic and it’s something I could handle.

My husband’s beard was a bit unruly. I would have preferred if he had trimmed it when he got his hair cut for the wedding, but he told me he didn’t want to. That was the end of it. It was his day as much as mine.

I’ve never actually seen FI’s face without a beard!

He usually lets his beard grow until he gets a hair cut-then he gets his beard trimmed to a nice shape and length, so I’m hoping he’ll do the same for the wedding!
