The Classic Tuxedo – Men's Formal Wedding Attire

The best argument for investing in your own tuxedo!

After hours spent scoping out every tuxedo on the market, I finally chose a designer tuxedo I thought would be perfect for our wedding. I immediately called my husband to have him pass on the details to his dad (his best man), his brothers, and the other groomsmen. In my very own bridezilla moment I completely lost it when my now husband called and said that my tux choice was a “no go” – he informed me that his dad explained that the men in his family do not get married in a rented tuxedo.

At the time, I thought the response was “uppity” and did not see the need for my husband or his groomsmen to own their own tuxes. 30 years later, as my husband dons his wedding tux for the hundredth time, I must admit I was wrong.  Every single time he puts on that very same tuxedo he wore to our wedding it brings me back to that very special day and reminds me of just how much I loved him that day and every day since.

Best Groomsmen Gift >> Think Flasks!

Best Groomsmen Gift >> Think Flasks!

Are you still searching for a fun, elegant & memorable groomsmen gift?  Think Personalized Flask.  Yes, as you can quickly see flasks come in all shapes, sizes and materials.  The classic flask is either metal or metal & leather but today you can also find collapsible canvas flasks, vinyl wrapped flasks, and glass flasks.  Their designs range from simple to well, not so simple such as a flask that looks like a retro cell phone or one that sports the insignia of your favorite NFL team or even  a horn-shaped flask.

So where to begin?  Flasks are hot and they are everywhere from the traditional wedding favor shops to interesting handmade flask designs on Etsy to a sterling silver flask from Tiffany & Co.  Most quality flasks are priced from $25.00 – $35.00 but sterling silver and specialty genuine leather can cost you a pretty penny.

Like each bride, each groom has his own unique style (even if he doesn't realize it ) so if we were choosing we would narrow our choices to the look most fitting the groom even if it doesn't 100% go with the wedding theme.  A groomsmen gift is all about the guy relationship so if you are all sports buddies go for the sporty flasks.  If you are a fun loving goofy bunch, the mustache flasks might be just right, the camouflage flask might appeal a group of guys who go hunting together, or the traditional Wall Street guy might want to stick with a classic black or brown leather style
