Nick Griffin is a Tuxedo Consultant here at Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo, who wrote a great blog for us on relationships from his perspective. He also had no trouble coming up with a title for his blog.
Our store takes great pride in providing outstanding service in a fun (rather amusing) and professional way. We love to hear thoughts from our employees and Nick is a special one to us. Enjoy, it’s a good read, and very insightful for a 20 year old.
And don’t forget, when you need a tuxedo, think of us (and handsome Nick, of course).
Hello! My name is Nick Griffin and I’ve been a tuxedo consultant at Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo for two and a half years now. I am twenty years old, so I have done a lot of growing up during my time in the store.
Being able to work in the exciting bridal sphere as a teenager has taught me a lot of different things about fashion, weddings, marriage, relationships, the working world, working with the public, and life in general. Working at a bridal store is really a privilege for someone my age.
A tuxedo consultant is a super interesting job for anyone, let alone someone my age. While most twenty year olds are flipping burgers or working as a cashier, I get the opportunity to make a positive impact for couples on the most important day of their lives. From the hundreds of couples that I have worked with over the years, here is what I have learned about relationships.
Being around grooms when choosing what they will be wearing on their big day can be exhilarating. Men are more fashion-forward than ever, so the pride they take in the way they look makes my job that much more interesting.
Much like when a bride tries on the gown that is “the one” for her, when a groom tries on the tuxedo he will wear on his wedding day, you can see it on his face.
No one notices this faster than their fiancee, who calls out when he loves something right away. Once she spots the glimmer in his eye or the smirk on his face, oftentimes the bride will say, “You love this one, I can tell.”
This is a small, yet special moment that I have seen over and over again, and to me it says a lot about couples. It shows me that when two people know each other so well, they can immediately spot the emotions of each other and can almost read each other’s minds.
When a groom does his “Groom Try-on” (an amazing service we provide to our grooms) and pieces together the outfit that fits his style and personality the best, something clicks with the both of them. This connection that engaged couples have is really something special to see.
Not many people get the opportunity to see a real spark between couples in the way that I do, and the fact that I get to aid in their elation during these appointments fills me with bliss. Spending an hour with these couples as they communicate with one another has shown me a lot of happy moments, because when people love the way they look their confidence skyrockets.
Some new looks for 2018!
This boost that the groom gets from looking so fresh in turn makes the bride happy, and it is those kind of special moments that are so precious.
I never take viewing these moments for granted, because they have taught me so much, and it is so touching to even have a small part in that shared joy these couples experience. I’ve even had the honor of being named in some of our online reviews (5-star, of course). Come in and visit us and me! Call or text 215-491-8500 or find us at www.DariannaBridal.com.
