Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…? – Magical Monday

Yay! You’re engaged, now what?! 

At this point in our series, we are about 8-10 months away from one of the best days of your life! 

In the midst of selecting your wedding day vendors, there are some other details to pick out. 

One of the first selections will be what your wedding party will wear.

Dresses and tuxedos… The options are endless!

There are a few things to remember when selecting your wedding party’s attire! One is that your wedding party is the face of your wedding, they will be in majority of your photos, and most of all- you don’t want to be the couple that made their wedding party wear something atrocious! 

When it comes to your bridesmaids, you want to make sure that their gowns won’t upstage your bride while remaining cohesive with the style. Whether you personally select each person’s attire or give them free reign, you have to have some sort of direction regarding wardrobe, after all it is your wedding day!

Groomsmen are a bit more simple, with a lot less wiggle room as far as accessories and wardrobe choices are concerned. A solid color tux, or suit, accented with a color relative to the wedding decor makes it easy and still looks great!

If you’re more of a relaxed, carefree couple you may consider deciding on a color scheme and let your wedding party decide on their own outfits. 

It is important to keep in mind your party’s body types, budgets, and personalities in mind. We all know that there is nothing worse than being stuck in something that you feel extremely uncomfortable in.  

 Let Fairy Godmother help plan your big day, not only plan, but to share our advice on proper wedding party wardrobe for your magical day! Contact us to schedule your consultation!

One detail that tends to be forgotten is to ensure that your groomsmen and their tuxedos fit perfectly! You want to be sure that everyone’s shirts are not too big and that everyone’s pants are long enough, but not too long. Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to show off those fun socks!

In addition to making sure that everyone who will be wearing a tuxedo on your big day has been sized correctly, this is also for any additional specialty items you might be adding in. Custom cufflinks and tie selections being items most commonly forgotten.

Looking for ways to brighten up your groomsmen and steer away from the traditional black and white? The answer is simple, add some color! Accent colors can easily be added to give your wedding party that “flair” that you want.

Another choice to be made is vest or no vest? Cumber bun? Bow tie or long tie? Jacket or no jacket?

It’s all about your preference and wedding style! Personal touches make your day, yours.

Showing some personal background or letting your groomsmen pick a few of

their own touches make it even better.

What’s an acceptable dress code for your wedding party? Cowboy hats and Wranglers? Navy uniforms? Suspenders without a jacket?

How about all of the above!

These are the personal touches we long for!

And don’t forget the shoes! Converse, Vans and boots… Oh my!

Just as Cinderella said “One shoe can change your life!”
