What the Groom Should Wear


When thinking about what a groom typically wears to a wedding we think "tuxedo". When your groom goes to get fitted there are so many different options that go along with his tuxedo. Here are some key terms to help your groom understand what he wants when going to pick out a tux:

Jackets: There are five primary choices to choose from

*Tuxedo- Most classic look you see at traditional weddings. Most choose from single breasted (1-4 buttons on front) or double breasted (2-6 button front)

*Full Dress Jacket- There are the type that have the "tailcoat" on the back and are shorter in front, good for very formal events

*Morning Coats- Also known for the "cutaway" jacket, great for daytime weddings

*Mandarin Jackets- Also known as Mao or Nehru, have a stand-up collar and no lapel

Lapels: Material that attaches to the collar of the jacket and extends down the buttons that are on your jacket, there are three different choices

*Notched- The most popular, a triangle cut out on both sides of where the lapel joins the collar

*Peaked- The most broad, features a V-shaped lapel point on both sides

*Shawl Collar- Is smooth and rounded and has no notch or indentations

Collars: The collar you wear helps choose which jacket you should wear

*Wing- Most formal and popular, a stand up collar that has downward triangle points

*Crosswyck- Old fashioned but still used today, crossed collar that is fastened with a button

*Mandarin- This collar goes up around your neck, great for guys who don't like to wear ties

*Spread- The most casual collar, resembles your normal button-up shirt except a wider gap at the collar points in the front

Weddings with Pets


On your wedding day it is important to have everyone who is close to you present. For many people, this includes their family pet. There are many different ways to incorporate your pet into your wedding. Your pet can play the role of ring bearer, bridesmaids, or groomsmen. Also, if your are getting engagement photos taken you could have your pet in those with you.

When considering having your pet by your side on your big day there are things to consider, such as if the pet will be allowed at your venue, the type of pet, and what role they will play. It is important to inform your guests and vendors that you've decided to include your pet. Make sure the pet will be with someone they are comfortable with to be taken care of. You should bring your pet to the wedding site for some practice before the wedding day and also bring him to the dress rehearsal to practice his part again.
