Well-Groomed Groom: Hands-On Guy

By Well Groomed

Posted in

It’s great when a groom takes the reigns and is involved in every aspect of the wedding. Photog Christina Blanarovich of Zen Photography submitted these pics of her involved client Greg and his new wife, Britney. Greg punctuated his traditional navy suit with a spring green, brown, silver, and white striped bow tie. A light blue button-down shirt add more dimension to the look than a standard white would have.

Greg reflects on his wedding day style: Since we were getting married at a barn, tuxes for the groomsmen would have been way out of place, so I decided to wear a suit and shoes that I already owned. But, it was my wedding day after all, so I paired it with a bow tie. I settled on a bow tie I liked and made sure to pick up enough for all of my groomsmen.


more from Greg: If I could pinpoint my look, I’d say I wanted to look like myself, but while paying attention to all the details and trying to look my best. We wanted our kids to look back at our wedding photos and say “Wow, mom and dad were really on their game that day!” I should thank Christina and Zen Photography. We knew they would deliver the goods and capture the moment beautifully and naturally.




Greg’s cost-cutting tips: Cut cost corners in places where you or your friends and family can do a serviceable job. For instance, we weren’t extremely fussy about flowers, so we ordered them wholesale and did our own arrangements and saved quite a bit of money. On the flip side, the things that matter most should have a more flexible dollar limit. So, looking back at our wedding, we’re much happier with stunning photos of our wedding day than we would have been with professionally-arranged flowers and just “good” pictures. A big part of having a great wedding day (and looking like you’re having a great day) is being stress-free and knowing that your vision has come to fruition.


Greg, I couldn’t have said it better myself. Thanks for sharing your insights!

    Amy, I agree. Greg's advice makes a lot of sense.
