Our Special Projects Editor, Anthony Luscia, is always on the hunt for cool new wedding ideas. And while we usually spotlight awesome finds for the bride, Anthony is revealing a few of his best-kept secrets for grooms. After all, he's a vital part of the wedding!
A New Take on Tuxes
Renting your tux? No need to forgo a custom fit. At The Martha Wedding Party here in NYC, I recently met my new friends at Generation Tux. It's a cool site that makes renting a tux so easy—and so chic. They have amazing looks to choose from for every type of groom. But the best part is that everything can be totally customized all with the touch of your iPhone!
A Groom's Style Manual
The days of "It's all about her" are over! Guys need to look and feel their best, too. Don't worry if you're not a style-savvy groom. Just check out Mr. Baldwin's newest guide to grooms' fashion called Grooms: A Professional Stylist's Guide to Wedding Day Apparel for Every Budget. It will help introduce you to the stylish wedding world of suits, shoes, ties, and more!
A Creative Invitation
Who needs letter size? I want posters! My dear friend is getting married and sent this gorgeous letterpress poster from Inky Lips Press as her invitation. It is so fun, special, and a great keepsake to get in the mail. (The one above's paper style is Neenah Solar White Eggshell 100#.) You can use them for practically anything, too, whether it's your save-the-date or signage to display your hashtag at the reception! Plus, they make designs that both the bride and groom can appreciate, which is always important to keep in mind while wedding planning.
