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!

Contact Fairy Godmother today to start planning your magical day, and let the co-planning begin!

Be sure to get plenty of rest, you want to be sure that you will wake up invigorated and ready to get married! You may also want to run by your groomsmen, and bridesmaids (yes, girls have fun too!) about their expected behavior as the day transpires.

Be careful not to get too worked up over some little bumps in the road, your day will be perfect and you have planned too long and hard not to enjoy your big day! Be sure to stay hydrated and eating, we want to be sure that you are healthy all day long.

From your rings to your shoes, to bracelets and accessories in between, down to your toes! Having your details in order prior to your big day is essential for many things, one of which is peace of mind. The others are for photos! Most often, the photographer will shoot their detail photos as the bride gets ready, these shots are the shoes, the accessories and of course, the rings! Making it imperative to the timeline and run of the day that all items are accounted for.
