I'm pretty clueless when it comes to men's formal wear, especially where to buy them. I've only really heard of two places: the big chains. I had my heart set on going with Men's Wearhouse for the guy's attire. I really think they're very professional, and have a great image. I've heard nothing but good things about them. Unfortunately, they didn't have a good deal at the show for us to want to book them. The second place I wanted to go to was Tuxedo Junction. I wasn't completely crazy about going with them, but they have better prices and offer a colored back to the vests:
*Surprisingly, there are NO pictures of this online! I'll need to see if I can get the picture from the brochure on here*
There were a few other tux places at the bridal show, and one we both ended up liking a lot was Tuxedo Corner, a local tux shop. They start at $20 less than TJ, and although you have to pay $20 extra for shoes (if needed), they'd have to pay $20 extra for the vest. Still, $60 for the whole thing isn't that bad (if they don't need shoes)! I'll talk about my options more in the next couple of days though. We'll be going in within the next 2 weeks (before the next bridal show) to see about their selection and to make a decision on what we're doing.
Anyways, at the show I happened to see another example of flowers that I also liked. I'm really not sure what I want to do, and I have a couple appointments in 2 weeks with florists, so closer to those I'll talk some more about flowers.
Something similar with violets instead of the lavender like flowers, and maybe a lighter yellow or light yellow roses could be done.
After, during/after the fashion show they did their door prizes. I was lucky enough to win! The catch, I had to play a game first! I had to compete against four other girls to win a diamond necklace. To win: we had to dig through a wedding cake (that smelled AMAZING- I would have eaten some off of my hands but I didn't want to look like an idiot in front of everyone) to find a plastic ring. The first to get to that won the diamond necklace. Well, I found the ring in under 30 seconds! I won the diamond! (Edit 1/12: If you go here you can see better pictures of it. Hopefully you can see the pictures!)
About to dig through the cake
Sorry the pictures are blurry. It's pretty hard to take pictures there.
Have you gotten to play or win something at a bridal show?
