While it is important for the bride to feel like a princess on her wedding day, let’s not forget about the groom standing at the altar waiting on you!

Grooms should also take the opportunity to look their best on this special day! Thankfully, there are a lot more options for grooms to look handsome on the day they get to marry their dream girl! We are finding a lot of grooms are mixing it up when it comes to tuxedos. Pairing a velvet jacket with tux pants gives a nice texture, and is perfect for winter weddings. If you are planning an outdoor wedding the guys will look great in tan or light grey suits. For more casual events groom and groomsmen are opting for tailored jeans and a nice jacket. For formal weddings I love the look of white dinner jackets and of course they can never go wrong with the classic black and white tuxedo. Pairing a brightly colored tie or bowtie can add a playful touch to your wedding party and will show off your groom’s personality.

Making sure the groom is comfortable and confident in his wedding day attire is an important detail that should not be overlooked! Also, making sure that you and your groom’s look are cohesive is important. Bride’s should never look more formal that their groom! Instead, the formality of your attire should match, this will ensure a picture perfect bride and groom!

Monogram1

Growing up in Georgia and considering myself a Southern Belle, it’s safe to say that if it’s mine, it’s monogrammed. Thankfully, monograms are not limited to the south and we are seeing this trend everywhere!

Monograms are a fun way to personalize details at your wedding. Monograms are popular on cocktail napkins, displayed on the dance floor, on the cake, and some brides wear a necklace custom made with their new initials for the reception. Other ideas are a custom vase for your bouquet, monogrammed linen napkins to use at home and cornhole for cocktail hour games!

Let’s not get carried away here! A bride should only use her new married monogram after the ceremony has taken place! This means, do not use your new monogram on wedding invitations but go ahead and put them on those thank you cards! So if you are considering using monograms at your wedding, just make sure they appear in décor at cocktail hour and reception only.

“My rule is, if it’s not moving, monogram it”- Reese Witherspoon.
