What You Should Do With Your Groom…(And Groomsmen)

Standard

While a lot of people think it is classy and traditional to do black tuxedos for the groom and groomsmen, those of you who want something different, you have so many options!

In this day-and-age, it is normal for a tuxedo shop to have not only black tuxedos, but also white, navy, gray and khaki.

I love the black tux and white tie; I think that it is still very close to the classic look, but with a slightly different look to it.

As for the navy, it is a very handsome look that many of my guy friends’ wore for prom in high school.

I love these unique styles!

There are a lot of different options for boutonniere rather than the typical rose. Ask your groom if he would be willing to wear something different!

key to my heart - boutonniere This is an adorable idea. This is the grooms boutonniere, and the bride has the lock to it on her bouquet!

Now this is different in the best interest of the groom. My boyfriend would LOVE it if I asked him to do something like this, and I know a lot of other guys that would enjoy it as well. Star Wars and super heroes are very popular among grown men just as much as young boys!

There are so many different tux shops to choose from, but not all are the best choices.

I personally have not had the best experience or greatest choices from Men’s Wearhouse.

I would look at local tux shops or even check to see if where you get your wedding dress rents tuxes.

My favorite local place is Street Tuxedo, owned by a Lipscomb alumnus. You can find locations in Nashville, Franklin and Murfreesboro. I have spoken with the owner several times, as well as his workers, and everyone is beyond friendly and willing to work with you.

So tell me, what is your favorite look?

Mason jars: A very popular decoration for weddings these days. There are a lot of things that you can do with them, some things pictured above. Mason Jars are very cheap and you can get them at most stores, such as Walmart, your local grocery store, or even a hardware store. If you are planning on putting candles in them, you do not have to go at this in an expensive way. Get them from Dollar General, or even Dollar Tree! These stores also have MANY other cheap things that you can buy for your wedding. I have seen multiple brides buying small things for their table settings in these stores!

If you don’t like the Mason jars, but want lighting, these paper bags are just as cute! They make a great centerpiece for tables, or you can line them up on the ground somewhere!

I think that this is a wonderful idea for an outside wedding! The bride and groom could have these as well! Great so that your heels don’t sink in!

Lanterns are one of my favorite things to use for decorations. The flowers just add something really great to it, but they also look really good without the flowers. In the taller lantern I would use a taller candle, though.

I have personally watched a friend of mine make these, and they are so cool!

This is such an easy thing to do yourself at home. Go to your nearest craft store, buy your letters and some paint, and paint away! The yarn letter is a little more difficult, but so cute! There are also many different things you can shape the letters out of such as moss, flowers and twigs!

Teeny Fairy Berries are tiny glowing white LED that fade on and off slowly. Collectively, they produce a moving firefly or fairy light effect that is absolutely unique. Float in water, too! Lay them all around the garden or indoors for a fairyland atmosphere. These must be ordered online.

I think this is a very modern and different way to do lighting, but I love it! It is very cool and very easy to do! There are so many different things that you can do with old light bulbs!
