Say I DO in Fan Style

Say I DO in Fan Style

Seattle Seahawks Themed Wedding (or Better Yet, Rehearsal Dinner)

It is Joe & Adam's favorite time of year – football season! And as they, or more likely their fiancees, are finishing up plans for their upcoming nuptials, it is not too late to add a few personal touches to the festivities. There is absolutely no reason why you cannot say I DO in fan style, so long as you own it!  Personally, we would make the rehearsal dinner an all Seahawks (or your favorite team) kind of night and then have the groom and all the groomsmen wear Seahawks bow ties with their wedding tuxedos (Be sure to check out Men's Formal Wedding Attire >> To Rent or To Own? The best argument for investing in your own tuxedo!)

Ripped from the Headlines Halloween Party

Ripped From the Headlines Halloween Party

by Lauren

2015 has been quite the year. We were so inspired by this Great Gets post imagining Halloween costumes ripped from the headlines. Theme your Halloween and create a ripped from the headlines Halloween party! Tell your guests to arrive in costumes straight off the front page and the evening news — between politics, sports, and culture, there's plenty to choose from! These costumes are easy, fun, and add a touch of humor and pop culture knowledge to any Halloween party. And yes although some of the featured costumes are satirical and poke a bit of fun at politicians and other public figures, we have made a conscious decision not to feature costumes we deem disrespectful, or have the potential to incite violence or foster hatred and we implore you to do the same.  Please no Caitlyn Jenner or Black Lives Matter costumes, and please, please stay away from anything and everything ISIS.

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.

What to Wear to a Great Gatsby Roaring 20s Theme Party

Great Gatsby Roaring 20s Inspired Clothing

Full of glitz, glamour, ornate details, and a true style all its own – what girl wouldn't want “The Great Gatsby” look? Whether you are planning a casual Gatsby themed garden party, fabulous, glamorous cocktail evening, or even attending a Great Gatsby costume viewing party, there are plenty of ways to add a flapper-esque flair to any look with the 1920s fashion inspired dresses and accessories over at ModCloth.

  • Details, details, details. Epaulets, pearls, rhinestones, and sequins were highly used during this time period to add glitz to an evening outfit.
  • Slender silhouettes. While you could still see a full skirt, long hemline, and high neck, the robe de style dress featuring a drop waist and straight cut was the most popular style.
  • Haute headpieces. To top off the entire look, add a whimsical & decadent headpiece from ModCloth. You can even DIY a fabulous headband with ribbon, feathers, and gemstones!

For more tips & tricks to achieve the perfect flapper-esque look, you can visit the ModStylists here: ModCloth ModStylists Will Style You Up!. The ModStylists can put together a look-book specifically for you!
