The Black Tux Groom’s Guide – Wedding Wednesday

Okay, grooms. You did it, you popped “THAT” question! Now it’s time to get to work.

Our friends at The Black Tux have put together a guide for wedding planning, just for grooms!

This guide includes all the “do’s” and “don’ts” of groom’s wedding etiquette.

Well, we say “etiquette,” The Black Tux refers to the levels of the guide as “party foundations!”

It is 2017, it’s time for the gentleman to do more than pick their favorite cake flavor…

Leaving all the work to mothers and brides-to-be is just uncalled for!

Let’s dive in!

As we begin, we know that the groom will be an active part in two pieces of wedding planning… #1. The proposal and #2. The vows.

Lets beef it up a bit and add in a few more helpful ways for the groom to save his future spouse from a true headache!

Have a valid opinion! Let your voice be heard and share your ideas in your appointments, being indecisive doesn’t help your partner make a choice any easier.

Suggest hiring a wedding planner to help keep your plans running smoothly, Fairy Godmother would LOVE to help plan your day!

Next up, bridal party!

How to choose your mates doesn’t have to be the most difficult part of wedding planning, we promise.

Brothers, soon-to-be brothers, closest friends, and ultimately it boils down to who could you trust with your final pre-wedding fiesta, or better yet, the rings!

Your magical day has finally arrived! All of your planning has come to an end, and you are going to finally be able to enjoy your big day.

There will be a lot to do on your big day, but with the help of your planner it will go without a hitch!

Whether it be a formal affair or a more casual event, the outfit choices are endless! There are a few “do’s and don’t’s” of wedding attire.

The biggest “no-no” in wedding attire expectations are to never, ever wear white! On a wedding day, the bride is the only one who will, most likely, be wearing white. Assuming the bride and groom did not make any special requests for you to wear white.

Above we have an example of casual, but not too casual. This is the perfect dress code for most outdoor weddings, keeping your guests comfortable in whatever weather you may experience!

If your wedding is going to be a bit more formal, suggest to your guests that they dress semiformal, also known as “dressy casual.”

This allows for anything from tucked-in button downs to full suit and tie ensemble.
