a little something for the gentlemen...

I think it's safe to say that the majority of my readers are female, but for all you male readers who are looking for some inspiration -- this one's for you!

There's always so much focus on finding the perfect dress, what color the bridesmaids dresses are, their style, the shoes, the veil...the list goes on and on.  It may seem like your apparel options are limited to a tux, and...well, a tux.  Granted, you can go jacketless, add a vest, change the color of your vest.  But don't worry you've got lots of options too!  Here are some fun alternatives & additions to the traditional suit and tie.

1.  Opt for a colorful bow-tie instead of a tie...
Not only the bowties...but suspenders anyone?

...or stay classy with a black one.  James Bond style (you know you've always wanted to rock that look).

2.  Change up the shoes.

I'm sure these are way more comfortable than your dress shoes!

3.  Let your boutonneire reflect who you are.  No, you don't have to wear fresh flowers if you don't want to. I fell in love with these on Green Wedding Shoes by Lauryl Lane!

For all you music lovers.
