Wedding day fashion for the groom & groomsmen goes way beyond the traditional tuxedo.  Today we're going to explore some of the more casual and creative attire options for anyone who does NOT plan on wearing a flowing white dress to the wedding!

When I got married back in 2010, my recollection is that tuxedos were the standard fare.  It feels like men's wedding day fashion has gotten much more relaxed & casual - in a GOOD WAY - over the past few years.

Let’s take this opportunity to review some options, pricing & tips to save yourselves time, money and stress in the process of figuring out what the guys should wear on the wedding day.

Of course there are a zillion variations and creative spins to what we're discussing, so please feel free to use your imagination to suit (pardon the pun, see what I did there?) your unique situation, personalities & tastes.

Today we’re exploring:

  • Traditional tuxedo rental tips,
  • Some pleasantly surprising information on custom suits,
  • And casual, playful menswear alternatives.

WOMEN'S SUITS:

Talk about a multimillion dollar GAP in the industry - unfortunately, finding women's suit rentals is very difficult.  Some research yielded a few legit options:

And last but certainly not least, a HUGE thank you to GENERATION TUX!  Check these guys out & use promo code "WEDPOD" for 10% off the entire groom’s party.

This week is classic Wedding Q&A, where I'm answering FIVE of your wedding questions submitted via Instagram stories.

You're newly engaged & bursting with excitement about marrying the love of your life!  Unfortunately, many couples start making big wedding decisions before having a solid budget, realistic wedding vision, and specific action plan laid out with their partner.  But without a plan and set priorities, you'll likely wind up with a blown budget, crushing overwhelm, and loads of frustration.  That's exactly why I created the Wedding Planning Podcast ENGAGEMENT STARTER KIT, to guide you through the first 3 steps to planning the wedding of your dreams.  To sign up {yes, it's totally free!} visit www.weddingplanningpodcast.co/learnmore

Your bridesmaids and groomsmen play a really special role in your wedding plans, and of course on the wedding day.

In the second half of the show, I'll be sharing your wedding questions, answered!

  • When should the speeches take place? 
  • In what order?
  • I’m worried about inappropriate content - what should we do?
