Well-Groomed Groom: Classic All Black "Bond"

The groom and his crew in this wedding went for a straightforward all black tux. Channeling their inner Bond with classically-styled black suits and shiny black shoes with a modern color twist: champagne gold tie for the groom and purple ties for the groomsmen - all aligned with the details on the wedding.

The Well-Groomed team was able to get a quick Q & A with the groom, an engineering project manager in Silicon Valley - and we're quite amused with his honest approach =)

Q: Most guys are all about simplicity and comfort. What were your considerations when styling your look comes wedding day? 
A: I wanted a tux and all black for the guys. A good fitted suit.


Q: We noticed the yellow band on your arm. Is there a story behind this?

A Even James Bond had something gold

Q: Your bride, Jamie Mays, is a superbly stylish and talented make up artist, who has worked with numerous wedding and events. What was wedding planning with her like?

A: Like the military… You’re told what to do – now fall in line ;-)

Q: Any tips / experience to share on grooming (hair / facial) for the big day?

A: If you don’t grow hair like me it’s easier

Q: Most memorable thing when planning the wedding?

A: writing those big checks… ouch!

Groomsmen Gift Idea: a Pair of Stylish Beacon

From Mr. Well-Groomed:

The guys in our lives are more than just friends. They're our partners-in-crime: late night bar hopping, til-dawn poker games, spontaneous, sometimes out-of-control, road trips (back when we were young and wild), 0400 (read 4 a.m.) chow, or simply beer & wings on college football Saturdays.

So when it comes to giving them a token of appreciation for standing beside us in life and as groomsmen in our most important day, it's not without some heavy research. We're looking for non-cheesy groomsmen gifts, best quality, something useful that they can enjoy for years to come. Unique gifts that compliment their personalities.


The Beacon Collection, just-in this summer from the folks at Warby Parker, reflects that camaraderie and impromptu craziness - and they look effin good. Solid. Period. For  a well-groomed groomsman gift, think inside the frames. They'll be happy to wear them on their own date nights. Or always - coz' they'll wanna look awesome all the time. Your guys will appreciate the sophisticated style and the sentiment (and you'll know this won't be just another groomsmen gift catching the dust.)



Get the Beacon at Warby Parker's website. Also available in stores and showrooms. While we're here, I might just nab a pair for myself. These blue ones specifically. (Hint to Mrs. Well-Groomed).



P.S. for every pair of glasses sold,  Warby Parker gives back a pair to someone in need - all through their non-profit partners. Learn more here

Well-Groomed Groom: Grapetini & Tangerine Twist

Remember when Abir came to us with a style question and where to get the same affordable dress shirt for different body types?


Well, Abir and Angela chose the tangerine twist and added their own twist! Check out the most beautiful moments embarking their new adventure - filled with music, style, fun, and love!

Old cassette tapes as the place cards (they had a music themed wedding from vinyl records wedding invitation to concert posters look alike as the wedding favor).




 
Orange accent on the groom and the groomsmen was also carried by the flower girls. And not to forget the brown shoes with that splash of orange that go so well with the groom's gray suit! Also notice the purple on the groomsmen 'bouts to match the bridesmaid dresses! 







We're smitten with the royal red and gold from their Hindi ceremony - they're glowing with love!

Thanks you for sharing - congratulations and the very best wishes Abir & Angela!
