So often in wedding planning, the guys are pushed aside. The ladies take over with their fancy ideas and large opinions and more often than not, it’s the guy that steps back and says “Yes Dear”. But just because he is compliant (for now) doesn’t mean he should be ignored. Your man has great ideas, a fresh perspective and heck, he’s super cute, right? So let’s focus on him today.
First of all, he’s gotta smell good. This man-friendly set called the Six Pack (tricky, right?) from Every Man Jack is the perfect way for your guy to start his day . The modern packaging and “Signature Mint” scent is all kinds of manly. The products are also free of dyes and products that can irritate skin, making them perfect for just about anyone, including the sensitive-skinned guy.
Accessories are the easiest way to spruce up your man on the wedding day. There’s something very cool and debonair about a guy taking his wedding prep seriously- they usually have pensive looks on their faces as they dress- but imagine the smile on your guy if he adornes himself with some personalized cuff links? Baseball makes everything fun, right?

And what about ties? The Tie Bar is hands-down the best place to find a huge variety of ties for men and boys. A huge trend is to color- coordinate but pattern- diversify the groomsmen’s ties and I’m a fan!

Bow ties are making a hugely stylish comeback:

Having just little fun on the wedding day lightens things up. Here’s a way to make guests chuckle.

This is one of my very favorite things I have found recently for weddings (it’s on Etsy of course). These Wallet Wedding Vows are a modern and sentimental reminder of your vows but how uber-romantic would it be for the groom to pull this out of his pocket and recite his vows from this lovely litte thing? It’s compact (credit card sized) and sturdy. Join me in hearing the collective ooohs and ahhhs of the ceremony guests. Love it!
Phoenix photographer Ben Quillinan of BQ Photography says this about guys and photos: Guys are always nervous and not into having their picture taken. But when it’s about having fun rather than the picture, they relax and are perfect subjects. Once a groom realizes he doesn’t have to act differently in front of me or do any ridiculous posing, he’s back to himself and we have a great time. Bringing a couple smart-ass groomsmen along is helpful too. If the groom does start getting stiff, his buddies can snap him out of it pretty quick.
Let your guy have the spotlight, make him feel extra-special and allow him to have his fair share of the wedding fun- there’s plenty to go around!
