At most weddings, it is the bride who takes the center stage. The groom often remains in the background. Most people forget that the wedding day belongs to the groom too. If you are one of the people who do remember this and want to raise a toast to the groom, these 5 tips should be of great help.

The groom is as much a part of the wedding as the bride. He may also encounters the usual wedding jitters, last minute panic attacks, and even a small desire to make a dash out of the country.

But men are expected to be stoic and gallant, as they wait for their beautiful bride to walk down the aisle, as he waits for her at the altar.

In case you are the lucky groom who is ready to get married to the love of your life, here are some last minute wedding day advice for grooms:

1. Make Sure to Get Adequate Rest. Even If You Have Had a Wild Night of Bachelor Party.

A cranky bride is bad enough. But a cranky groom is worse. Nobody wants to see you frown, or look grumpy on your big day. So get some rest. If your friends are throwing a bachelor party for you, make sure to not stay up too late, and get stone drunk. The last thing you want to do is draw disapproving glances from the in-laws.

2. Learn Your Wedding Vows Well.

If you are reciting your own wedding vows, make sure that you have a copy handy, in case you fumble and flub your lines. Remember, the wedding is being caught on tape. And years from today, you will have to hear about your pathetic wedding vows, and how you sounded like a lunatic.

3. Have Your Best Man and Friends Help You Out.

Leave the nitty gritty to your friends and folks. They should have to do some work for all the free booze and food, right? Make sure that the florist, the musicians and the cake artists are taken care of by your friends and relatives. It's your day, after all.

4. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff. Focus on the Moment.

Your wedding tie is not in place? Who cares? Do you feel that you look a bit dull? Believe me, nobody will notice. All eyes are on the bride today. You just have to look happy. So do your part, and enjoy the day.

5. Don't Invite Your Exes to the Party.

This does not need to be said, but the sooner you bury your past, the better for you. Your future wife is not going to look kindly on your generous act of inviting your exes. It is time to build a new life with a new wife. So let bygones be bygones.

Here are some funny, interesting, and inspirational wedding toasts for the groom. Enjoy every moment of your wedding, and make the memory last forever.

Marguerite De Valois
Love works in miracles every day: such as weakening the strong, and stretching the weak; making fools of the wise, and wise men of fools; favoring the passions, destroying reason, and in a word, turning everything topsy-turvy.

Aerosmith
Falling in love is so hard on the knees.

Albert Ellis
The art of love is largely the art of persistence.

Margaret Mead
Having someone wonder where you are when you don't come home at night is a very old human need.

Oscar Wilde
Woman begins by resisting a man's advances and ends by blocking his retreat.

King Vidor
Marriage is not a word; it is a sentence.

Ann Landers
If you have love in your life it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you don't have it, no matter what else there is, it's not enough.

Kim Anderson
You love simply because you cannot help it.
