Tips and Advice

Who says girls have all the fun?

Gents- it’s your big day. Grooms all across the world rejoice! It’s your time to be celebrated and bask in all the love.

Kick it up a notch

Some of you might be thinking you have to keep it simple. Fresh buzz, sleek suit and shiny shoes. We say- if you feel like bringing in some color or pizzazz of your own, do it. Own the look and personality and redefine what it means to be the Groom. Who says a pair a fly kicks or a velvet lapel suit can’t be the center of attention? Whatever feels right, now’s the time! When considering your options, reach out to one of our favorite local experts The Black Tux.

Got a beard?

In true Portland fashion, there are multiple ways to style and feature a well groomed beard on your wedding day. We recently saw a feature of two Grooms’ celebrating their epic beards. The idea is like the flower crowns for Brides but instead they had flower adorned beards. We realize this extent of styling might not be suitable for every gent, but for those looking to bring in a new look- we think it’s fantastic! We’re sure that any of our lovely recommended florists could be marvelous in designing the right look for you, such Bramble Floral Design, Metal and Moss Floral Design and Kailla Platt Flowers.

Being “extra”, as they say, isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Whether you feel the simpler stylistic route is more of a fit with your personality, we hope you feel that there are options to stand out a bit on your big day. If you’re all about the “extra”- the creativity can go to an entirely new level and match whatever you’re imagination creates.
