I met with Stephanie Aspinwall with Pretty Entertaining this afternoon and we got to talking about how so much of a wedding is typically focused on the bride and bridesmaids. I have met some couples where the groom is very much a part of the planning, but it is certainly not the norm.
At Blush Bridal Boutique, we get to meet many of the grooms and groomsmen through our suit and tuxedo rentals. We absolutely love it when the groom expresses his opinion and helps with the selection. After all, he will be wearing it, so it should be exactly what he wants!
In years past, most of our rentals were for a simple black tux. Sometimes we would have requests for a navy or black suit. Today we are seeing a spectrum of colors and styles of tuxes and suits rented for weddings. Tan suits and grey tuxedos were the most popular this past year, but 2016 introduced navy and burgundy tuxes. We’ve also had bridal parties rent just the pants, shirt and bow tie with either suspenders or vests. It’s a breath of fresh air for our consultants to help design and create just the right look.
As an added benefit to bridal parties, Stephanie mentioned that she’s recently learned of services that are now being offered to style the groom and groomsmen for the wedding. I think that is a fabulous idea!
When working with the groom and groomsmen, we take the time to measure them and, once the tux arrives at Blush, we contact each member of the party and have them try it on at the shop. While they are here, we teach them how to adjust the pant waist, vest and tie and ensure that everything fits well. A groom style specialist will take that even the day of the wedding further and make sure they are well groomed and ready for the wedding portraits.
