My favorite grooms fashion is when they stay true to themselves along withe keeping it classic. Move over tuxes – gray and navy suites have moved into your turf. Elopements are a whole different story when it comes to style – the groom can where whatever he wants! I love the style of the navy cardigan, grey shirt and khakis – still classic and very true to his personality.

My five tips for the men to stay handsome and comfortable from ceremony to the dance floor:

1 // First and for most stay true to your personality – if you do not want to wear a tux or a coat DON’T! Nothing is worse than seeing a good looking dressed guy wearing a 4 piece suit on a 90 degree day.  Girls I totally understand that you want your man to look handsome and you have a vision but listen to him if he is not comfortable – it will show in the photos and he will be 100% happier that you listened to his thoughts and feelings.

2 // If you are wearing a dress shirt, I HIGHLY suggest and urge you guys to wear a white shirt underneath AND bring a few extra if you sweat through you can change it. There is nothing worse than seeing a good looking guy wearing a white shirt, sweat and see his chesticles. It is far from classy and even more horrible for photos. Plus if you can change into a dry shirt you will be more comfortable AND happier throughout the night.

3 //  Wear your shoes a few times before the wedding day! And if you can get away from renting shoes DO IT! You always need a great pair of shoes for those dressy events. Those rent-able shoes are NEVER very comfortable after a few hours – they pinch, they are slippery and dogs will be barking well before you can show off your rad dance moves. Along with investing in a great pair of shoes – get a great pair of socks! Like I said about the shirts, bring extra pairs of socks – and if you have to rent shoes bring a pair of comfortable dress shoes to change into after the photos are done.

4 // Make sure you eat before the ceremony and if you have a few hours before you get to head to the reception – have snacks or mini sandwiches to snack on. This way you will not be a sloppy mess when it comes to the reception – AND you will be able to remember and enjoy the reception fully.

5 // STAY HYDRATED! So I started out all like – this is how you will look handsome all day and full of style tips – now I am all Mom. Drinking water in between those shots or cocktails is so important – especially if your wedding is on a HOT summer day. No one wants anyone fainting, throwing up and getting drunk off 2 beers after sweating on a hot hot Wisconsin day happens.

So again, I am huge sucker for classic men who stay classy and alive throughout the wedding day – you can dance the night away, take a few shots and enjoy those cocktails fully when you are comfortable and hydrated.

Nick & Steph / Proposal Edgewater Madison Wisconsin
A moment in the making before they both knew it. The world was pushing them together by living just a few doors down from each other, Steph had a dog that would bark at Nick every time he walked by. Secretly I think that dog knew these two were supposed to be together - his barking was to get his attention. They dated for weeks before knowing they were a modern Romeo and Juliet, working for competing companies. After a little time together they thought it was time to tell their bosses that they were dating, but someone beat them to the punch and Nick was sadly fired. Losing hid job just months into dating, they had to move into together and l ...

Confession Friday / That Moment
That Moment - you know the one when you look at your significant other and just know they are going to be the one by your side till you are both using walkers. That moment is more than butterflies and flowers everyday. It's that moment when you look at them and smile, just knowing that they make you happy. I have been having a lot of these moments in the past few months, when I am talking with a friend about their hubby or boyfriend and they talk about things they do not do. I find myself thinking about how Justin does those things, and how amazing he really is. No, he doesn't bring me breakfast in bed, or cook for me on a daily basis. But ...
