Formal from Head-to-Toe

Once the prefect wedding gown is found, the search is on for a great pair of shoes.  Brides know how important the perfect pair of shoes is in creating their overall look but often times, not much thought is given to what the groom will wear on his feet.  It’s true that men’s formal shoes can sometimes be plain but that is definitely not the case with the new David Tutera men’s formal shoe collection.

The first pattern, Celebrity, is a patent shoe with a classic double –runner across the body of the shoe.   The double-runner is over-laid with a matching matte material adding contemporary flair.  The second pattern, Icon, is the flip-side version of Celebrity where the shoe is matte-based and the double-runner is patent. Both styles are super sharp and would look great on every groom.

Have you shopped for your groom’s shoes yet?  If so, what style are you getting?

Experience “Firsts” as a Couple

Last month, I met a Philadelphia area broadcaster who published a book about her year of “firsts.”  For a whole year, she documented her attempts at trying something new every day.  Shortly after, I read an article about a couple who decided to get married every day for one year.  I thought both ideas were very interesting and thought it would be really fun to combine the ideas.  Trying something new is sometimes scary but if one was to try something new every day, or even once a week with their spouse, it would make the experiences less frightening and more fun. I think sharing the experiences would help a newly married couple grow and even help a longer married couple get out of a relationship rut.

If you were to pick one “first” experience to share with your spouse, what would it be?

Adding Color to your Wedding Attire

When it comes to weddings, it seems to always be about the bride. From what she’ll wear to her rehearsal dinner to the wedding gown (or gowns) that she’ll adorn at the ceremony and reception. But what about the other half?

Grooms everywhere are becoming more and more involved in the day to day planning, and as a result, getting excited about how he will look when he walks down the aisle! Need some inspiration on how to infuse color into your suit or tuxedo? Look no further:

Wedding Tuxedo - adding color

Credits: Peacock Boutonniere, Tuxedo with Purple Tie, Tan Suit with Striped Tie, Grey with Purple Tie, Black Tuxedos with Pink Ties, Grey Tuxedo with Green Tie, Green Converse Sneakers, Colorful Tie, Purple Tuxedo.

One thing to notice in our fun and colorful inspiration board is that the classic black tuxedo with white or black tux and vest is not present! A Black Tie Wedding has its restrictions but is oh-so-amazing with its crisp formality, especially at beautiful venues found in top cities like Boston and NYC. Black Tie is typically held after 6pm and is noted on the invitation. Learn more about dressing for a Black Tie Wedding.

Trending shades of navy, grey and tan are becoming increasingly popular:

  • Navy Tuxedos have been popping up all over the red carpet over the past few years. This look has an elegant feel and is a favorite for a formal wedding on the waterfront. Imagine paired with a Nautical Theme!
  • Tan Suits are an amazing choice for couples getting married outdoors. Also a great choice for a seaside wedding, but also perfect for a garden or outdoor wedding in the spring or summer.
  • Grey Suits and Tuxedos come in so many shades! From a breezy,  linen grey suit for an afternoon summer wedding to charcoal grey for an evening winter wedding, this color is the perfect choice for the groom who doesn’t want to stray too far from classic black.

Regardless of the color tuxedo or suit you choose – grey, tan, navy or black – adding a pop of color is easy to do. Have fun, enjoy. Let your individual style stand out!

Battery Operated Bridal T

It’s still popular for a bride-to-be to wear a t-shirt or sweatpants emblazoned with the word bride. The word bride is usually an ironed on decal or sometimes it’s a rhinestone bride tank or tee but I saw a new t-shirt that would be so much fun for a bride to wear – a LED t-shirt that lights up!

The T-Qualizer Store just launched bride and groom themed t-shirts that light up and flash to the music. There are two new designs available for both brides and grooms. There’s a Here Comes the Bride (or Groom) in a funky font that flashes to the beat of music and an Everyone Needs a Marriage License (Plate), a unique vanity plate which also lights up and animates.

These shirts would be a big hit at a bachelor or bachelorette party. They’d surely get a lot of attention!

To celebrate these four new shirts, T-Qualizer is giving away two sets of them to two lucky people! To enter just visit their Facebook fan page, and click the ‘Contest’ button.

Wedding Registry App Makes Shopping Easy

I read about a pretty cool new wedding registry iPhone app that I thought I’d share with you.  Instead of registering at just a few stores for your shower or wedding gifts, the new Wedding Registry App lets you create a registry list by scanning the barcode of any item in any store using your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad2.  This allows your family and friends to buy the gifts from any store they want.

Once you download the free app from the iTunes App Store to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad2 and register for a free account, you can start compiling your list.  When the registry is complete, tell your family and friends to join your group account in order to see your list.  Items get organized into categories like cookware, tabletop, etc. and include pictures, comments and personalization by you.  When they select a gift, the registry gets updated immediately.  It’s that simple.

Another reason I like the new Wedding Registry App is that it allows your family and friends to make purchases at stores where they have a credit card, rewards points or where a registry item might be on sale.

If you’re using the app, let us know how you like it.
