Planning a wedding is a complex activity, encompassing a countless of details and considerations. Writing about every aspect of wedding planning would be a enormous task, let's instead focus on some essential elements not to be overlooked, alongside valuable fashion insights and guidance tailored specifically for grooms and groomsmen. 

Setting a Wedding Budget

Before diving into the planning process, it's essential to establish a realistic budget. Sit down with your partner and discuss your financial priorities, allocating funds to each aspect of the wedding, from wedding attire and venue to catering and entertainment. Be sure to factor in unexpected expenses to avoid any last-minute surprises. Utilize tools such as budgeting spreadsheets or wedding planning apps to help you stay organized and track your spending throughout the process.

Making Guest Lists

Do you want a small intimate wedding, or a big Cinderella style wedding?

Creating a guest list can be one of the most challenging aspects of wedding planning, but it's crucial to determine the size and scope of your celebration. Start by compiling a list of close family and friends, then consider any additional guests, such as coworkers or distant relatives. Remember to prioritize those who are nearest and dearest to you, keeping in mind your budget and venue capacity. Consider creating an A-list and a B-list to help manage your guest count and accommodate any unexpected changes.

Writing Vows

Your wedding vows are a heartfelt expression of your love and commitment to your partner, so take the time to craft them thoughtfully. Reflect on your relationship, shared experiences, and future aspirations as you pen your promises to one another. Consider incorporating personal anecdotes, meaningful quotes, or promises for the future to make your vows truly unique and memorable. Practice delivering your vows aloud to ensure they flow smoothly and resonate with sincerity on the day of your wedding.

Planning Outfits

Coordinate your wedding day attire with your partner to create a cohesive and stylish look. Consider factors such as color scheme, season, and venue when selecting your outfits, ensuring they complement the overall aesthetic of your celebration. Don't forget to schedule fittings well in advance to ensure a perfect fit for everyone involved.

Dandy & Son are confident that you will find a shirt style and fit that suits your body type and size. Our size guide and recommender tool should help you select the right shirt for you first time. However, if you order a shirt that doesn't fit perfectly then you have a full 60 days to return it to us for an exchange or refund. We will cover all costs associated with any exchanges until you find the exact fit you need. We know how important this is!

Selecting the Perfect Dress Shirt

Don’t forget the back-up dress shirt for the groom! Having a backup dress shirt for the groom on the wedding day is crucial for peace of mind. Unexpected mishaps like spills or wrinkles can happen, so having a spare shirt ensures that the groom looks impeccable throughout the celebration. It's a small precaution that can make a big difference in ensuring a seamless and stress-free wedding day.

Gifts for Your Groomsmen

Show your appreciation for your groomsmen with thoughtful gifts that reflect their personalities and contributions to your special day. Consider personalized accessories such as cufflinks, ties, or pocket squares, or opt for practical gifts like grooming kits or monogrammed flasks. Whatever you choose, your groomsmen will appreciate the gesture and cherish the memento for years to come. How about treating your groomsmen to a fresh, top-notch, and high-quality cotton dress shirt fir the wedding?
