Carley & Me

So, you brides and grooms are wondering exactly how we coordinate the groom's look to fit perfectly with the ambiance, color scheme, etc. This month, I had the privilege of hanging out with my girlfriend Sylvia Weinstock and Carley Roney, owner of The Knot. We had 3 "knottie" brides who submitted requests that we dress their grooms, so let's talk about how we dressed them to fit each groom's personality, build, and wedding theme:


From Left to Right: Frank Jedda (Director of Kleinfeld MEN), Michael, Brian, Me, Aram

Brian was very slim and was doing a formal wedding so we put him in a class 2-button black tuxedo with peak lapel and matching vest. To make it a little more unique, we went with a patterned bow tie and we did a different pattern pocket square to add interest but still coordinate. At the end, Brian loved the look so much; he said he felt like James Bond!

Aram is getting married at the Hudson Hotel which is very hip and chic and his fiancé did not want him in a typical tuxedo. If any of you have visited the Hudson Hotel, they have a 3 story escalator lit by bright yellow neon lights. So, I wanted to choose something that would fit the atmosphere but not look ridiculous and a suit that he could wear again. For Aram we chose a navy pinstripe suit that he will be able to wear with jeans, on his honeymoon, etc, etc, etc. But to really make it pop, we paired it with a blue and green paisley patterned vest made of woven silk. To make it pop even further and to blend with the colors of the wedding, we chose a green tie and pocket square. Now this is a man who's dressed for a chic New York City hotel soiree!

Michael and his fiancé are doing a spring themed wedding and wanted him in a light grey suit. However, with Michael's dark features, I felt that a charcoal suit was going to be even more striking on him and he would get more use out of it in the future and look a bit more formal to make him stand out from the rest of the wedding party. To brighten the entire look, we went with a pink tie and pocket square and finished it off with a pink tulip (not shown) that sings SPRING! At the end, Michael said that he felt confident and that it takes a real man to wear pink—I totally agree!
