Help Your Groom Say I Do (To His Tux)
Getting your husband-to-be excited about the wedding planning might be a challenge, but with a little help from New York Bride & Groom you’ll be up to it. He has already decided that he wants to spend the rest of his life with you. If he’s like many men, that’s enough. Guys are often impartial when it comes to flowers and favors and such and simply defer to their fiancé’s judgment.
When it comes to their tuxes, however, men are more likely to be invested in the process. Still, they might need guidance to find the look that will make them feel comfortable, confident and handsome. Here are three tips to help your groom say “I do” to his tux.
Rule number one: He may say he wants to do his tux shopping alone, but it’s possibly because he doesn’t want to burden you with another appointment or detail to plan. Let him know that you want to help him make a tux selection, or at least give him some input as he plans his style and colors. He’ll be glad you are willing to help.
Rule number two: Before visiting New York Bride & Groom, sit together and look at magazines and websites featuring celebrities on their own wedding days and at black tie events. This will give you both a feel for what he likes and is not as into. Tux’s come in a variety of cuts (single breasted, double breasted), shades, accents and embellishments. Have an open discussion about how he can select something that will work with what you are wearing without revealing too much to him about your gown.
Rule number three: Point out a few styles that you are into. Grooms want their brides to be completely happy on their wedding day, so he might opt for something you truly like, rather than wear something he picked out “just because.”
Helping your groom commit to his tux will settle the issue for him and make the planning process that much easier for you. It’s a true win-win.
