Vendor Advice for the Groom
Make sure he is happy and relaxed whenever you discuss wedding plans. Chances are these lengthy conversations about which silverware to place on the reception tables means nothing to him.
Derrick Taylor, Taylor & Company
Show the excitement of your wedding day by sending him a gift while he’s getting ready with his guys. Beer or a special note will do. The possibilities are endless and he’ll love you that much more.
Desiree Dent, Dejanae Events
I remind couples to stay focused on the details that are important to them and not a current trend or what was most important to someone else. The wedding should reflect the individual couple’s personalities.
Melissa Cesario, Loews Chicago Hotel
Let your groom have a say on his attire. He may not get to pick the color of his tux or suit or even his tie, but help him find a pocket square and socks to show a little of his personality.
Matt Jajkowski, Black Tie Formalwear
Tell the groom and groomsmen to try on their tuxedoes or suits along with the shirt to make sure they fit properly. You don't want to get to the wedding and find the shirt sleeves are 5 inches too long!
