The bride isn’t the only one who needs to look stylish on the wedding day. The groom needs to take the time to find the perfect tuxedo to complement the style of the wedding.

Take the time to go to the reputable formalwear shop in your area. You don’t necessarily need to go to a national chain, even if your wedding party doesn’t live in town. Most tuxedo shops will do measurements even if you aren’t renting the tuxedo from their shop.

Have your entire wedding party try on their tuxedos as soon as they arrive at the shop. Make sure everything fits correctly, and that all the pieces are there. Count cuff links and button studs if they are included. And don’t forget to try on the shoes.

Make sure all the groomsmen have black socks to wear with the tuxedo. You may want to pack some extra pairs in your wedding day emergency kit, in case someone shows up with white tube socks.

You’ll wear your engagement ring every day for the rest of your life. Invest the time and effort to find rings you will be happy with for decades to come.

Always work with a reputable jeweler. Ask friends and family if they have any experience with a particular company. Do your research up front to find a jeweler you can trust.

When shopping for rings, take the time to try on several different styles of rings. See how cut looks on your hand before deciding. Also, consider how the engagement ring looks with your ring. You will be wearing them together, so they should coordinate.

Educate yourself on the grading scale of diamonds, so you know what you are looking for when you shop. Find a design you love! Cut, clarity, and color are important once you’ve settled on a design, but the ring should make you say wow!
Don’t take any chances in case it gets lost or stolen; insure your ring immediately after purchasing it.
