tuxedo alternative: the suit [Page 1 of 1]
If you are hosting a less formal or more intimate wedding, consider ditching tuxedos altogether in favor of a good suit.

Buying a nice suit for your wedding can be a great idea, particularly if you actually need a new suit for work - you get to kill two birds with one stone. You'll buy it for your wedding day, but wear it all year as well as a constant reminder of your nuptials (whether you want to or not.)

The beauty of buying a suit for your wedding is that you can co-ordinate the accessories to match the bridesmaids dresses. For example, if the bridesmaids are wearing bottle green dresses, the groom and groomsmen can have bottle green matching ties and silk handkerchiefs. It's too easy.

Consider whether you're going to have your groomsmen wear suits that are similar to yours or exact replicas. If you'd like the wedding party to wear matching suits, that helps with the wedding photos and purchasing coordination, but keep in mind that you're asking your groomsmen to buy the same suit, at the same price point. That may not be welcomed with open arms. In the alternative, the groom could ask that groomsmen wear black suits with white shirts - and the groom will provide the tie and handkerchief on wedding day, matching as described above.

When it comes to the color of the suit - you can basically do whatever you want, with your bride's approval, of course. Dark grey, navy blue or black are all fine choices. If you're not planning on having the groomsmen buy their own suits but are giving them instructions on color, know that navy blue and black are the safest bets. If you throw gray into the mix, you're going to end up with odd shades and patterns showing.

The guys at GroomGroove.com can hear you now speaking with your best man: "Hey Ted...do you need a new suit?"...

Hi when your starting a weddnig planning business it is important to build connections..You can try by offering free weddnig planning for a few weddnigs. This will get you contacts with a few brides. You can post your free offer online at craigslist, facebook and your myspace bulletin. You can also try connecting with other weddnig vendors such as photographers,florist,videographers etc. You can offer them referrals from new clients, if they send you some brides.You can try making postcards or business cards with your offer placing it in grocery stores,bridal shops,hotels,etc.If you have advertising money going to bridal shows are great you get connected with alot of brides in a short amount of time. Most shows bring in at least 100 brides and some can bring as much as 1,000 brides to the show in 1 day. Plus being at a show is another way for you to get your information out to other vendors who are at the show with you.If you are looking for a long term marketing tool I would say your website is a big tool. You can start by buying things to get your lisiting unto the first page with your competition. Making sure you have links to other sites , try offering some vendors a trade off if they link to you , you will link to them . Last important tool is a blog, having a blog that you keep updated can bring your site more attention is another link you can add to your site.I hope some of these ideas helped , I am in the weddnig industry myself so best wishes to your new business venture.Michelle.B http://fcggzs.com [url=http://opcutnu.com]opcutnu[/url] [link=http://enicaq.com]enicaq[/link]

I was wondering if you ever thghuot of changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I really like what you have got to state. But maybe you can create a little more in the way of written content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two graphics. Maybe you can space it out better?

Dawn, It is optional for the Fathers and even Grandfathers to wear a tuxedo or a suit. If they are going to wear a suit I think it is fun for them to wear a tie representing the colors of the wedding. ._______________________________________________________ . Rent A Tux or Buy A Suit? When you ask the groomsmen to be in your wedding it's assumed they will be renting tuxedos, usually at their own expense. While rental offers range from $50 to $150, I have personally found most rentals end up averaging $120 & can be as much as $200. Each tux is a different price and most brides & grooms gravitate to the nicer fabrics because they feel and look better, but also cost more. Some stores charge extra for shoes & accessories such as vests. That entry level deal is rarely the out the door price. Another option is to buy a tux. The problem is most people won't have enough occasions over the next 5 to 10 years to justify the cost. After all you may want to wear a 3 button coat to your wedding while the next one is a 2 button. Then you're back to square one. The point at which it makes sense financially to own a tux is if you will wear it 3 to 4 times a year. Less than that and you are buying one because you want to wear YOUR tux and not one a hundred other guys have worn. When the Bride & Groom decide they want their wedding somewhat formal but different from the norm, the third option comes into play. That is when the Groom & Groomsmen wearing a matching suit. The fathers usually enjoy being a part of this as well. The great thing about it is the Groom gets to come out of the ceremony not just with a beautiful new wife but also with a very nice & useful suit he can wear for years to come. This isn't for every wedding ceremony & if it's not in the budget then don't even consider it. Here's when it might be right to do so: * The Groom & Groomsmen will get plenty of use out of a nice suit later * You would feel a little awkward wearing a tux that you don't where it's been * The Bride or Groom's family can subsidize the purchase OR * The Groomsmen have the ability to buy their own suit * The Groomsmen are already out $100-200 for a rental tux anyway so why not put that money towards a purchase. * You would like your special day to not be a cookie cutter wedding * Your wedding is out of town, making a rental last too long & cost too much * You would like to have a lasting memento of your special day * Add your own reason here_______________________ Here's where I come in. I meet with the Bride and Groom to talk about styling, color, pricing etc. I then go out to each of the local groomsmen to take their measurements. Sometimes the Groomsmen will have a get together and I can take everyone's measurements at once. The suits are then made for each man individually out of the same cloth. I bring them to them a few weeks later for a fitting and deliver them after any minor adjustments are done if necessary. Some Grooms like to wear something a little different to stand out in the wedding party. Perhaps he's in Black and the Groomsmen are in charcoal grey. Or for a summer wedding outdoors during the day he's in tan and they wear brown. Usually the couple likes for me to arrange for colored ties and pocket squares to match the bridesmaids if the theme isn't black & white. I offer special wedding pricing. Because you've have found me here you will at least get a 10% discount. (Please mention this article) OR You also have the choice to have the Groom get $100 off per each Groomsman buying a suit or have everyone get a $100 discount. Here's an example: * You pick out a beautiful suit fabric at $695 but everyone pays $595, getting a wonderful suit made just for them. OR * You pick out that same suit fabric at $695 & 5 people total are buying them. The Groom's suit ends up at $295 and the other 4 guys pay $695 and everyone gets a really nice suit made for them. If two Fathers in the wedding party also buy a suit then the Groom's suit is merely $95 at that price range. It can make sense to keep the discount when the groomsmen can easily afford the suit and hey, you're helping foot the bill for a pretty costly wedding & starting a life together. I also sell shirts, shoes, ties, cufflinks and even tuxedos. Thank you for reading and considering this option. Feel free to ask me a question via email. Congratulations!
