Grooms’ Style Guide

A dapper gentleman is the best accessory, wouldn’t you agree? We’ve put together the essential items that every man needs to look dashing from head-to-toe. A groom should go above and beyond to look his best on the big day (he’ll be standing next to you, after all), but why stop there? This is his wedding too, and what could be better than planning the most important milestone in your relationship together? Bring him to the I Do! Soiree on Thursday, February 4 at The Corinthian for an evening of wedding planning that even he will LOVE. While you and your besties are swooning over lovely décor and gowns, tasting cakes and enjoying beauty treatments, your hubby-to-be could be hanging out in the grooms’ lounge. Sounds perfect, right? We thought so. Get your tickets NOW before they sell out! We can’t wait to see you and your boo at the I Do!
