Getting Wedding Ready – Your Fitness Goals

“Order me one size smaller because I’m going to lose weight before the wedding.”

Oh how many times we have heard this. Sometimes they do sometimes they don’t but regardless, everyone wants to look their best for their wedding day and a fitness plan often finds its way into the planning mix. So how do you really get wedding ready?

There are so many “fitness” options today, depending on your goals. There are the chain gyms, the niche gyms for power lifting, barre, or yoga, online communities for weight loss/work out “challenges”, diet-specific cooking classes on Tik Tok, home delivery meals – the list goes on.

Everyone is different, and while a big box gym might work for someone, it may be intimidating to another. Someone may really catch on to cooking for themselves while someone else may not have any interest at all in doing that.

I think most of us are somewhere in the middle, wanting a small group setting that isn’t intimidating where you can make friends with others who may not be looking to enter a competition, rather just get in shape to feel better, more confident, and healthier. A good place to do this is right in Horsham called Remix Fitness!

Trisha Goodman and Mary Cate Wampler are the co-founders of Remix Fitness. This is important to us as a small business, because we know how much passion is required. We know the twist and turns necessary to stand out and apart. This is definitely not your stereotypical gym, they are there to make it fun and help you achieve your fitness goals!

They offer in person classes and live stream all of them. They offer child care as well. If you take a class online you must sign up because they will hold you accountable! The class sizes are just right with like-minded individuals working hard to improve themselves and cheering you on as you do the same.

THE OFFER:

Remix is offering a free week of classes with no strings attached to see if Remix is a fit for you!

Maybe you want to get in shape and wedding ready with your fiancé? Maybe you and your mom would like to try it out? Maybe your parents, you and your MOH? They are open to anyone being referred from our store! Don’t wait until January to make your resolution, start now and see where you could be in January!

The Minimony and Micro Wedding Are Here To Stay; What Dress To Wear

Born out of a pandemic and a seemingly temporary fix, the Minimony and  Micro Wedding appear to have taken hold as smaller, meaningful, and more intimate ways to tie the knot.

A minimony, also called a micro wedding, is simply a smaller wedding ceremony, usually with a luncheon or dinner celebration afterwards. Some couples will plan a large reception for a later date, or better yet, have a big 1-year anniversary party! Such a great idea!

So while all of this is a great idea, it leads us to the attire: what to wear for the Minimony and micro wedding?

You are still the bride, even if the wedding is scaled down. You will still walk down the aisle, you will still have pictures taken, and the formality of the tradition is no less important. So what are some good options?

Taking into account the season, location, and your wishes, the options are wide open! These are some of our most popular.

Aiden by Madi Lane: and all over crêpe square neck fitted dress with chapel length train is a perfect choice. Sophisticated and classic, you can wear with a belt, and also the sheer tulle jacket with pearls. This dress is so smooth and looks perfect with your flowers, they really pop!

A popular choice for an outdoor Minimony is Lillium from the Blue collection by Enzoani. A lovely cap sleeve, plunge V-neck, and banded waist lead to a lightweight and flowy skirt that moves perfectly whether walking down the aisle or twirling at your first dance. If you are into BoHo, add a flower crown to this and it is perfection!

Another great choice for an outdoor micro wedding if you prefer your arms covered is Bea byMadi Lane. A layer of charmeuse underneath gives some fullness to the skirt and the sheer sleeves include the vine-like lace applique. Bea also has a scooped out back adding a little fun to the design!

A perfect summer or destination Minimony and micro wedding dress is this darling creation from Stella York. A smooth crêpe front that can be worn with or without a belt or sash, plunge neckline, and an open back with a wrap tie for added support and a pretty bow detail!

Lovely and lightweight is this piece from Morilee. A cut-in halter neck beautifully shapes the full bodice, and the lined chiffon skirt adds even more sophistication. Peek-a-boo slit to show off your shoes!

Creating the Perfect Pinterest Wedding Board

Pinterest is every wedding vendors dream tool. When brides and grooms come to us with a vision, trying to describe exactly what they want or the vibe they are going for can be challenging. Pinterest has made it easy for them to collage together what they are thinking and show their vendors exactly what they are picturing rather than trying to find the right words.

Whether you are a bride, groom, maid of honor, or wedding planner, Pinterest is definitely a site you will want to use to make your planning run smoothly. Follow along to learn how to create the most efficient wedding Pinterest board!

Step One: Designing your Board

First thing’s first, you need to make a board that is dedicated to solely wedding related content.  This board is going to contain only pictures, ideas, and blogs that you like and inspire you, so keeping all of your relevant content in one space will make it easy to find when you are looking for it.

This board is something that can be created regardless of if you are engaged or not! Many women start their wedding boards before they even find “the one”. The earlier you start it, the more you learn about your wedding tastes and preferences.

Step Two: Creating Sections

You have your wedding board that you will be adding all of your inspiration to, but you can’t leave them all jumbled together! Creating a section for each sector of your wedding makes it simple for you to store and find exactly what you are looking for.

Say you are ready to come say “yes!” to your dress at Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo and you want to show us pictures of what kinds of dresses you have been liking online. Since you created a “Dress” section underneath your wedding board, it is a breeze to hand the phone over to your consultant and then let her take it from there pulling dresses that are similar to the ones that you have saved! It allows you to have a very productive appointment without spending too much time trying to describe what it is that you have been looking at.

Step Three: Begin Pinning

Now that you have your places to store all of your inspiration, it is time to go find what you like! You can always start with a very broad topic like “wedding” to see what comes up that may help you find what you like or even what sections to create that you may not have thought about before. Once you start to narrow down what you are looking for, search for more specific topics.

For example, you may start with a search like “wedding dress”. Once you start seeing all the different types of dresses and notice which ones catch your eye, you may want to try a search like “fit and flare lace wedding dress”. If you have found a designer that you like, you could even try “Madi Lane A-line wedding dress” and see other styles that the designer has that you have not seen yet!

Step Four: Follow your Vendors

Once you book a vendor, it is a good idea to follow them on all social media platforms to get the best inspiration and stay up to date with what is happening with them. Following your vendors on Pinterest is a great idea to see what is unique to their business and what they are showcasing from their actual weddings prior. This give you a good idea of the realistic possibilities for your own wedding!

As a bridal store that is active on Pinterest, we have brides from all over the world watching our consultants model our gorgeous gowns. We often send incoming brides to our Pinterest page to get an idea of what dresses we have in the store that they may want to try on! Make your feed more personal to your wedding by filling your feed with all of the people who are contributing to your wedding!

Step Five: Clean up Your Sections

If you have had your wedding board for a while, you may have experienced a shift in tastes or have found that your original ideas no longer fit the theme that you have created. It is always worthwhile to go through all of your sections and delete pins that are either outdated, repetitive, or no longer relevant to your wedding. Trends can change fast as can tastes! Keep your sections as fresh as possible by thoroughly scrolling through each one. While you are cleaning them up, you can also see if you have a number of pins that look similar or if your section starts to look repetitive. This can help clarify what you are really looking for in your flowers, dress, cake, and decor!

Congratulations – you have the perfect Pinterest board! You are ready to share it with your maid of honor, vendors, and wedding planner. Make sure you have the Pinterest app downloaded to your phone so you can take your board with you to give them the best idea of the feel you want every component of your wedding to have! And when you are ready to make your appointment to dress shop, send your dress section over to the consultants at Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo and prepare to say “yes” to the dress of your dreams!

Don’t Rent Your Tux Online and Here Is Why

Renting your wedding tuxedo or suit online may sound easy and convenient. However, as a bridal and tuxedo store we rent thousands of them every year and we’d like to tell you about our experience and how we do it differently.

This blog will show you that we can make it even more convenient than renting online and our family will be with you every step of the way to make sure everything works the way it should.

What We’ve Seen With Online Tuxedo Rentals

So many times over the last couple of years we have groomsmen come in our store with an opened box from an online tuxedo rental place. The groomsman is holding the box in his hands, he looks nervous as he tells us that this tuxedo doesn’t fit, the wedding is “in two days” – or even better “tomorrow” – and asks if we can help. 

We ask if they contacted the company where they rented the tuxedo.  They said they did, but it was too late or it was outside business hours and no one responded.

It’s usually followed by, “The bride is going to kill me.”

For the sake of every bride out there, don’t rent online.

If I told you that we offer professional measurements nationwide, 24 hour texting ability to the owners, the largest and newest inventory, and the same convenience of delivering your tuxedo or suit rental to your front door, would you consider looking at our family business?

Who We Are

We are a family business founded and run by a husband and wife team, Wendy and Franco.  Darianna is the combination of our daughters’ names: Daria and Deanna.  Daria manages our wedding dress department and Deanna helps us with social media (she’s a little younger but will be in the store soon!).

We are personally involved with our business and we personally take care of each customer.  We also have a staff of 15 people who help as well and you’ll love them too!

You can even text our store’s telephone number: 215-491-8500.  When you text the store’s telephone number, you get a hold of the owners, directly!  Even when the store is not open.

You Are Family To Us

As a family owned business, we will treat you as family as well!  We are all about treating you kindly and respectfully.  We’ll go out of our way for you. How many stores do you know allow you to text them?!

So here are some things that we do that will ensure a perfectly fitted suit or tuxedo for your wedding or special event:

We Don’t Have You Measure Yourself

Please don’t measure yourself!!!!  Each person who lives near us will come to our store and we will fit you with every garment that you will be wearing.  You will try on a jacket, pants, shirt, vest and shoes.  This way, there is no question what your size is. 

Also, there are many different fits of suits and tuxedos: slim fit, skinny fit, ultra skinny fit, classic fit, portly, and athletic fit.  Even more complicated, many designers make suits and tuxedos differently.  Some fit more tightly, others fit more loosely.  We have the experience and fitting garments to adjust for all of these variations and make sure you are wearing the right size for the wedding or formal event.

We can fit you the way you like to wear your clothes.  Some like loose fitting garments, others like them very tight; shorter or longer outseam, etc.  We can give you exactly what you want.

We also rent sizes from 3T for the little guys, up to size 68+!

What If I don’t Live Near You?

If you do not live in the area or live in another state, not a problem.  You provide us with your zip code and we will arrange to get your measured by a professional near your home or work.  This is the best and easiest way to ensure a proper fit.

In addition, since we see thousands of measurements every year, we’ve become really good at catching inconsistent and inaccurate measurements.  Our tuxedo department actually looks at your measurements and ensures that they make sense.  If something seems off, we will either call or text you to confirm some information.  Usually within two minutes of discussion, we can determine what sizing you need (we have our tricks?!).

Submitting Measurements and Payment

All customers can submit their measurements and payments on our website. It’s that easy.  Our brides and grooms love this added convenience. You can submit measurements and payments on your time frame. Have a question while doing this? You can start an online chat with us or text us!

Submitting payments and measurements on our website can be done 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

We Can Ship You Your Tuxedo to Try On in Advance

Since we opened our store, we have always offered the option to allow customers who rent with us to have the suit or tuxedo shipped to them.

Couples are relieved when they know their groomsmen have their tuxedos in hand, often even the week before the wedding so that they can try on the tuxedo in advance.  The bride and groom have immediate access to our team for updates!

If there are any issues, we can replace any items that may not fit perfectly.  Shipping you the tuxedo or suit in advance allows us ample time to make any changes or replace any garments that may need to be replaced.

On a few occasions, we’ve even done video calls with guys trying on their suit or tuxedo to explain to them how things should fit and make sure all is perfect!  After all, how often do you get dressed up like this?  We are able to show your guys how everything works, from tightening the pants and vest, tucking in the shirt (there’s a trick), to inserting the studs and cuff links.  That’s just an added free service we offer to our customers.

If the tuxedo is delivered to our store, the groomsman receives a phone call when the tuxedo is in. We make everyone try it on at the store with us. They must be inspected by our team to make sure they look their best!

We Call You to Make Sure All is Good

True story: On New Year’s Eve last year, we received a text message to our store’s telephone number and a customer in Lincoln, Nebraska was asking the status of his tuxedo for the following week.  We were able to look up his order and tell him that the tuxedo had been delivered to his home at 11:01 AM that day.  He was at work and did not realize that yet.  He said he would be able to try on the tuxedo at 7:00 PM that evening, East Coast time.  At 7:30 PM our time, we called this customer to make sure everything fit perfectly, and it did!

The customer was grateful for the ease of everything: a place to be professionally measured near his home, the convenient way to submit his measurements and payment on our website, the shipping door-to-door, our immediate response letting him know exactly where his tuxedo was, and the care call to make sure he was a-ok. On New Year’s Eve!

We texted the groom and told him his groomsman in Nebraska received his tuxedo and everything fit perfectly.  Everyone was ready for the wedding that was going to occur 8 days later.

Free Groom Try On

When a wedding party rents tuxedos or suits from us, a groom is able to do a complete and free try on with us.  We have over 70 different styles of suits and tuxedo available for rent and over 35 available for purchase. 

At our first in person or video appointment, we will explain the styles to you, show them to you and then go over the 1,000 or so accessories that we have for rent.  Yes, that is correct, we have over 1,000 different styles and colors of long ties, bow ties, vests and pocket squares.  If we can’t match your theme, no one can! 

The bride and groom will then be able to choose two full tuxedos and/or suits, 4 vests, 4 long ties and/or bow ties, two pairs of shoes and two shirts.  We will prepare all of these garments in the groom’s exact size so that he can play dress up.  We also suggest choosing some items that the groomsmen will be wearing so that you get to see both what the groom and groomsmen will look like. 

We even have the bride take pictures of the groom dressed up so that the two can look at them at a later time to design which look is perfect for their wedding!  Our couples love the free groom try-on.  It really gives you an idea of how the look comes together.

Rent from Us and Have the Best of Both Worlds

  1. Free groom rental with bridal party rentals.

What’s in Your Wedding Box?

The Wedding Box. They are the tell tale sign of the beginning of wedding planning. Chances are that you have seen one or two bridesmaid proposal boxes on your Instagram feed at one point or another, but the wedding box has taken on a new role during weddings of the Covid era.

Let’s talk about all the different types of boxes that you may come across either while planning or attending a wedding.

The Bridal Party Proposal Box

The date has been set and the venue is chosen! Now it is time to formally ask your VIPs to stand next to you on your big day. This is when the boxes come into play!

Boxes will typically come either personalized with the recipient’s name or the question “Will you be my bridesmaid?” Many brides choose to fill their bridesmaid proposal boxes with items like wine or champagne, small candles, hair ties, personalized tumblers, jewelry, robes, and other small filler items.

Pink box with bow inside includes a personalized tumbler, a candle, soaps, and a mini champagne and a card asking "Will you be my bridesmaid?"
Bridesmaid Box

For the guys, the boxes will feature items like beer or whiskey, customized shot glasses, koozies, a bottle opener, flask, a tie, cigars, and much more. Items can be chosen to fit each member of the party personally or be part of an overall theme (ex. beach, colors, necessities for your day, etc.).

Black box with a personalized flask, whiskey, cufflinks, sunglasses, and a tie clip, asking "Will you be my groomsman?"
Groomsman Box

No matter what goes into the boxes, the members of your wedding party will be ecstatic to stand next to you on your big day!

The Welcome Box

Some couples who have destination weddings or have guests who require overnight lodging will provide their guests with a Welcome Box. These boxes can be customized to fit the wedding theme, the couple, or even the destination where the wedding is being held.

Welcome Box

One unique feature that couples can add into their welcome boxes is local snacks or treats! A tasty dessert or a traditional bite is a perfect way to welcome your guests not only to your wedding, but to the destination itself.

For those couples with beach weddings, a box with some snacks like plantain chips and fruits accompanied by some sunscreen, aloe vera, and perhaps sunglasses would be the perfect touch to prepare guests for a weekend in paradise. Personalized wedding favors like cups or some bubbly with a custom label are also a cute keepsake that will get your guests excited for the big day!

If your wedding festivities occur over the span of a few days, including a program to inform your guests of the timing of all the activities is a great idea to keep everyone on track and accounted for. Add a handwritten thank you note and you are all set to start the weekend of your dreams! The options for your Welcome Boxes are truly endless – have some fun choosing the items for yours.

The Covid Wedding Box

Given the current situation with the pandemic, many couples are opting to have smaller, socially distant weddings. Whether they decide to keep their in-person celebration or decide to go all virtual, more couples are opting to incorporate some form of a wedding box into their day!

For the couples who have chosen to continue their celebration with all of their guests present (and socially distant!), many couples choose to provide their boxes prior to the reception. These boxes can contain a branded mask and hand sanitizer, the guests table number, a program, champagne, bottled water, a slice of cake, favors, and a thank you note. This box eliminates the need for guests to move around the venue and helps contain the spread of germs.

Couples that chose to have a virtual ceremony might consider sending boxes to their guests with champagne, flutes, favors, candy, thank you notes, and perhaps details of their big reception should they choose to still have one. This allows guests to still celebrate with the couple from the safety and comfort of their own home.

Regardless of what option the couple chooses for their celebration, the use of these boxes during Covid has helped keep guests safe and happy!

The Favor Box

The final box you might come across comes at the finale of the wedding. These boxes are typically the smallest of the group. Favor boxes are given out as a “thank you” to your guests for coming and typically provide a little keepsake or treat. The outside of the boxes can be customized with a personal wedding label or designed to match the wedding theme or colors! These boxes can be filled with treats like macaroons, cake pops, cupcakes, M&Ms, taffy, chocolate truffles, mints, or chocolate covered pretzels.

If you are looking to provide a keepsake rather than sweets, consider custom koozies, cups, glasses, or shot glasses. Other non-edible favors can include candles, bottle openers, a bottle stopper, succulents, or personalized soaps. Choose something that will remind your guests of you newlyweds whenever they see it!

We hope this blog gave you some great inspiration to consider what boxes you would like to incorporate into your big day! Read about new trends for 2021 here!

Embracing Some Color In Your Bridal Look

Have you ever seen bride photos with color incorporated into her look and wondered how you could pull that off? Maybe you have never been the type to buck “tradition” and don’t think that your wedding day is the time to start?

Tradition means something different to everyone, in different cultures, religions, and even simply personal preference. If you are toying with the idea, read on for easy ways to do it!

For a number of years, designers have used color in the dress to highlight lace patterns. The darker the underneath, the more you can see the gorgeous lace design on the outside. The lace is always an ivory or white, but underneath can be colors such as candlelight, latte, champagne, mocha, blush, and even blue, red, and black!

A trend we are seeing lately is designers using embroidery to include color. Pretty flowers and detailing are done in colors from pastel to bold and even metallics. A lesser expensive way to get this look is to have the pattern already in the fabric.

Color On Your Dress

So let’s say your dress is all white or ivory and you are thinking of a pop of color somehow. How do we do this? You can consider a sash, a thin strip of color at the waist, or a bow that could coordinate perfectly with your flowers or your bridesmaid dresses. You could add a belt with a colored flower, or a jeweled belt with sapphire, emerald, or ruby colored stones! If you like metallic, go for a dazzling rose gold belt to add a warm and subtle pop.

Color In Your Shoes

If you are shy about adding color on the outside, consider doing it on your feet! Your shoes are an amazing way of showing a little bit of personality without it being “obvious”. And, it definitely makes for some great pictures and conversation!

Our brides have done everything from Tiffany blue to navy blue, from pale pink to Ruby slippers, golden wedges, multi-colored cowboy boots, black Converse, Uggs, beaded Keds and Toms, we have seen it all! Even the ones pictured in multi.

Color In Your Hair

Have you thought of your hair accessories? Your veil can have rose gold, pink, gold, or silver threading. You can have a barrette, clips, or a comb that has gemstones. What about flowers woven in your hair done by your stylist, or a flower crown?

A new trend for 2021 that we are excited about is spray-painted flowers, one of the most widely used is baby’s breath. Baby’s breath is often woven into a bridal braid, or an updo which would be delightful!

Color In Your Jewelry

Perhaps you just want to add some jewelry. This is a beautiful way to express a color that may be very meaningful to you. A particular gem indicating a birthstone of yourself, your fiancé, or someone special to you would be not only a wonderful way to add color, but also to honor someone special.

It could even be your something blue!

Pearls are a gorgeous addition, and always appropriate, so consider adding some colored pearls for a real glam look!

Don’t be afraid to experiment. When you make your appointment for your dress try on, play and see what you think. This is your wedding, and your day to show your personality. If color is your thing, go for it!

Wedding Trends For 2021

It is hard to believe that we will be starting a new year in just a few weeks and that means we have a new year of wedding trends to look forward to! After the year we have all come through and changes none of us would have believed, some of these new trends are really exciting and may stick around far longer than most.

Our trend research comes from reputable wedding industry bloggers, blogs from Brides Magazine, the Knot and Wedding Wire, as well as from our industry vendor partners, and our own brides and grooms. We are delighted to pass these along!

Brides magazine reports that 81% of couples said that the pandemic has changed the way they intend to plan their wedding. The days of 200+ guests with jam-packed dance floors may be over for the foreseeable future while couples opt for the following:

Micro-Weddings With Live Streaming

Couples are planning more intimate dinner events of immediate family and friends of 50 or less in person, while offering “live stream” or “watch parties” for those who cannot travel. Having a virtual wedding with a livestream broadcast has been a great way for couples to say their “I do’s” and still have their nearest and dearest watch, even from overseas!

At Home Weddings

At-home weddings are a more budget-friendly alternative to the traditional wedding venue, and wedding trends this year indicate even more couples will be tying the knot at home. With the cost savings, couples can bring in luxe decor and have gorgeous backyard ceremonies!

Entertainment/Photography

There are entertainment companies who are getting creative, too! Some will do virtual live music, bring large screen TVs to your home for Zoom parties, guests can dance from their location, offer toasts and well wishes as though in person! Not only that, couples are looking for unique entertainment such as comics, dancers, food trucks, baristas, and mixologists.

Photographers are capturing the couple as more of a “photo shoot” rather than typical staged wedding poses, as couples see glamorous wedding photos on social media. The photography has been stepped up! Also, many now offer multiple video camera angles of the event and drones as well.

At Home Decor – Big and Bold

Tents with large flower installations, concept lighting displays, unique tables and mismatched seating are way in! For flowers, while whites with greenery is still a thing, but there is a shift toward bold colors like purple, yellow, and orange, and even colorful nostalgic themes like the 70’s! Even those 90’s babes are going all-in with music and snacks like juice boxes and Dunkaroos.

Weekday Weddings

Because so many 2020 couples were forced to move their date into 2021, venue availability is not easy to come by. Many couples are choosing to get married during the week, where they can have the venue they want at a much lower cost. What may have been unaffordable on a Saturday is completely in budget on a Thursday! And with that savings, they are opting for more luxurious details, such as premium alcohol, food/appetizer choices, and opulent table settings.

Celebration Boxes

Of all the wedding trends, this might top the list! An amazing way to involve your guests, even those not physically present, couples are giving out/mailing celebration boxes! The boxes can be customized, stamped with the guest’s name, the couple’s names, wedding hashtag, or anything! A great way to give everyone what they need in one place and socially distance. The box could include a program, mask and hand sanitizer (custom labeled, of course!), table number, a custom cocktail kit or mini bottle of champagne. even treats like a mini wedding cake or cookies!

This celebration box includes hand sanitizer, soaps, candies and cookies, but items can be personalized with programs, masks, even mini-cakes!

Going Big With Flowers

Because of the popularity in micro weddings and the cost savings associated, there is more flexibility for other details! Couples opting for this choice (as well as livestreaming/Zooming) want to set the scene with dramatic flower arrangements as backdrops and statement altars as focal points! This can include large rectangle and/or moon gate structures with full floral coverage, huge floral installations, ceiling installations, and flower walls.

Flower wedding trends are incredibly fun, but this new one is so fun! Florists and event designers are spray painting ordinary flowers to create amazing displays! Baby’s breath is one of the most popular ways to get onboard, since it’s affordable and holds its shape without drooping or falling apart during the painting process. Anthuriums, pampas grass, palm leaves, plumosa ferns, and succulents are a few other options that look amazing when painted. Use colors like powder blue, lilac, and pink, for a cheerful aesthetic, or stick to metallics for an earthy, bohemian vibe.

Watch for sun palms to show up in many bouquets in 2021, edible flowers in wedding cakes and cocktails, and encased floral displays!

But Really… It’s The Dress

Ruffles, tiers, layers of lace, or a plain crepe slip dress, they are ALL in. Wedding dress trends for 2021, however, are sleeves, short dresses, and dresses with double looks.

Sleeves have evolved recently into something wonderful, the detachable ones (that come off the dress from the shoulder or top of bodice), along with the ‘not-attached’ sleeve that merely rests on the arm. Whimsical, romantic, and billowy, this accessory piece is a definite 2021 thing!

The double look dress can take many forms. It can be a traditional dress with a detachable train, it can be a ballgown with a removable skirt that becomes a short dress or a jumpsuit, it can be a short dress with a demure jacket that when removed turns into a sexy, dance the night away dress (as in photo above!). Or this one that turns into a long sleeve romper:

We have also seen a shift toward a mid-range price point. Brides aren’t looking to spend $5,000+, but not everyone is looking for that cheap, on-line wedding dress either. Brides want quality, and a dress that represents her uniqueness. She also wants an experience with her bridal stylist that she will always remember as the day she found her dress. That is worth paying for!

Wedding trends for the men lean toward suits, and colorful suits as well. From pinks, blues, Mulberry, and hunter green, there are quite a few choices. We are also seeing a higher demand for tweed vests worn with bowties, or even a more casual look with suspenders and a long colorful tie. While the traditional tuxedo will always have its place, in 2021 we expect more of the laid-back, fun filled vibe as the “traditional” weddings evolve into more intimate events.

Wedding trends come and go, however the year 2020 has brought about a few “trends” that may become the norm. It’s been a scary kind of year, full of uncertainty, but sometimes that’s what it takes to shift into a new way of doing things. Small in person events with unlimited guests “in attendance” across the globe is an amazing event to plan. From the flowers and entertainment to the attire, weddings are still going to be spectacular!

Dressing Your Out-of-Town Groomsmen and Wedding Guests

Do you have out-of-town groomsmen and wedding guests that you need to dress in a tuxedo or suit for your wedding? You are not alone! The good news is that Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo has a lot of experience helping you dress your out-of-town guests. In fact, what follows is advice on how to do this and a plan to help it all come together for your wedding.

Guests Located in the United States

Once a bride and groom have chosen the tuxedo or suit that they would like the wedding party to wear, this is the time when we start working on the groomsmen and out-of-town guests.

For those groomsmen who live in the Philadelphia region, we tell the couple to send the guys in for us to measure them. No appointment is necessary and they will be in and out in 10 minutes. We are open 7 days a week, with the exception of major holidays.

Sometimes, the groom and his guys will make an afternoon of it and all come in together. When more than two guys are going to get measured, we recommend that you make an appointment so that we can accommodate your needs more efficiently. After getting measured (and a lot of laughs and joking!), the guys will often walk down to Buffalo Wild Wings at the end of our shopping center, grab a beer and watch a game or two.

For groomsmen and wedding guests who do not live in the Philadelphia area, we ask the bride and groom to provide us each person’s zip code either where they live or work. If the bride and groom do not know the groomsman’s zip code, we ask them to ask each individual to call or text us with his information (yes, you can actually text our store’s telephone number!). We work with independent formal wear stores all over the country and provide the out-of-town guests with the name, address and telephone number of a store or two who will provide courtesy measurements for out-of-town wedding guests.

The groomsmen are able to go to the chosen store to get measured for their suit or tuxedo rental. The local store will provide the groomsman with his sizing and measurements. He will leave the store with his measurements in hand.

Any questions about what is being worn or what type of style (i.e. slim fit, skinny fit, etc), the groomsman or local store is welcome to call or text us at 215-491-8500. We are always available to talk through any advice you need.

Submitting Measurements

Submitting your tuxedo and suit measurements is easy and convenient. It can be done 24 hours a day on our website. By clicking here, an out of town wedding guest can click on “Submit Your Measurements” and fill out our measurements form. The information will be sent directly to us and we will start the ordering process for the customer.

Submitting Payment

To place your order, all we need is your initial payment. This too is very easy to do, 24 hours a day. On the same page where you submitted your measurements, you are able to make a deposit payment or pay the entire rental price. Check with us if you need the full balance amount because pricing depends on which of the 70 styles the bride and groom chose for the wedding. We will be notified of your payment and will order your tuxedo or suit retail.

Ship Your Tuxedo or Pick It Up?

Our customers also have the option of having the tuxedo shipped to them. It’s as easy as that. Our recommendation is that if you are not coming into town at least 48 business hours before the wedding to try on your tuxedo, then we recommend that we ship it to you. You will receive the tuxedo with enough time to try it on and make sure all fits perfectly.

Since we did not measure you, we prefer that you try on the tuxedo or suit in advance. We want to make sure everything fits perfectly and you are comfortable.

Once the tuxedo is delivered to your front door, we highly recommend that you try it on immediately. Many things are adjustable: the waist on the pants can be adjusted by 3 inches, larger or smaller! The vest is adjustable and our microfiber shirts come with a one inch expandable top button (how convenient and comfortable is that?!).

For the guys who are new to this, mom and dad with a ring bearer or anyone needing extra help, we’ve even done video calls to show you how everything works and get a look at the fit!

My Shoes are Too Tight!

Let’s say something doesn’t feel or look right? It happens and it’s no problem! Some of us know the wedding is approaching and start going to the gym more to look our best for our friend’s wedding. Maybe you lost some weight, maybe it went the other way! Not a problem at all. Of the thousands of tuxedo and suit rentals that we do every year, we ship about a thousand of them. We’ve become experts at determining what you need just by speaking to you on the phone, having a video call with you or texting you. If you need a new pair of pants or a new jacket, whatever the case may be, we’ll prepare it for you and have it ready for you when you come into town.

We can either give it to someone in the wedding party to give to you, have you pick it up at our store when you arrive or even deliver it to you or your hotel.

Overseas Groomsmen and Guests

We’ve dressed people as far away as China, Saudi Arabia and Brazil and most European countries.

Over the years, what we have experienced with wedding guests who live overseas, most of them arrive several days before the wedding thus giving us plenty of time to make any changes to their sizes. In fact, many of the guests coming from overseas are often in town for 5 plus days if not longer.

In the case that the overseas guests does not know his sizing and is coming in at least 48 business hours before the wedding, we suggest that he come to our store when he arrives in the country and we will measure him. We will have his tuxedo ready, most of the time, the next day.

If the overseas guests knows his sizing, he can submit them on our website, thus avoiding any issues with time zone differences and any added cost of making international calls.

We also have other communication solutions for our overseas customers. As one example, last year, we had a groomsman living in Germany. He and anyone else for that matter, is able to use our online chat system on our website and communicate with us real time at no cost to him. We were able to ask him questions about his measurements, guide him to our online payment system and order his tuxedo within 3 minutes of starting an online chat with him!

We are Easily Accessible

As a small family-owned bridal and tuxedo store, we’ve tried to use technology to make everything easier for our customers. That’s why you can text our store telephone number: 215-491-8500. Anyone can use this feature and the owners personally answer all texts. On our website, you can use our online chat system. We also use Instagram messenger, Facebook Messenger, Google messages, email and of course you can always call us.

We are always here for you. Breathe a sigh of relief that we will be able to dress your groomsmen no matter if they live in Philadelphia or Paris. Make your appointment today to discuss our over 70 different tuxedo and suit styles. We can’t wait to help you!

Mens’ Attire for Minimony and Micro Weddings

Of course COVID-19 has turned a lot of weddings upside down this year. Due to different state rules and limited capacity for weddings at the moment, we are witnessing many weddings being postponed into later 2020 or even rescheduled for 2021. Of course, some are getting married anyway in a minimony or a micro wedding. Who isn’t frustrated with the impact of the virus on life!

You may have read our blog that we wrote about the minimony. Minimonies and micro weddings are trends that we are seeing this year where the brides and grooms are having smaller, more intimate weddings with close family and friends so that they can exchange their vows and be legally married. Most of these couples are scheduling the larger celebration at a later date so that they can include everyone on their original guest list.

So with many months of dealing with COVID-19, we are seeing similar patterns and trends with the groom’s attire and who is dressing up for the minimony or micro wedding.

For the most part, we are seeing the following things occurring:

Groom, Best Man, Father and Siblings

We are finding that more than half of the time, the groom, best man, fathers and siblings are wearing the originally chosen suits and tuxedos for the minimony and micro wedding. In this particular instance, the bride and groom are not having the entire wedding party dress up for the smaller ceremony. In fact, because of restrictions, often, the entire wedding party (bridesmaids and groomsmen) may not be involved with the smaller ceremony. Often, it may just be family plus the maid of honor and best man.

Dressing Up But Wearing Something Different

When a groom does his full groom try on at Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo to help him choose what he and the bride want him to wear for the wedding, we find that the couple really falls in love with the look that they’ve chosen.

In cases like these, we find that the groom will choose an entirely different suit or tuxedo for the minimony or micro wedding so that he can save his chosen attire for the big celebration at the venue when that is scheduled. As an example, we had a groom choose our Allure Men sandstone tuxedo for his summer wedding. When the larger celebration was postponed to July of 2021, he came in and chose an Ike Behar navy suit for his July 2020 micro wedding with family and friends. He wants to wear the sandstone tuxedo with all of his groomsmen at the big bash in 2021!

Everyone is Dressing Up as Planned

Some of our brides and grooms want everyone to wear the tuxedos or suits that they originally chose for the wedding party. Therefore, the groomsmen, fathers, ring bearers and groom are all dressing up as originally planned. This preference is growing as restrictions are slowly being loosened for large or outdoor gatherings.

Early on in the pandemic, we had what was coined by one wedding party as a “drive by” wedding! The wedding party drove by waiving as the bride and groom were married with family practicing social distancing as they exchanged their vows. Everyone was dressed up in their bridesmaid dresses, tuxedos and mother gowns. We are impressed with the bride and groom’s determination and perseverance to make all of this happen!

Wear What You Want But Please Look Nice!

Lastly, we are finding a small percentage of the micro weddings asking the wedding party to wear the dress or tuxedo/suit of their choice as long as they look formal. The bride and groom prefers to keep the chosen attire for their big wedding celebration. When the bride and groom allow the wedding party to wear what they wish for the micro wedding, we are seeing pictures of the bridal party wearing their favorite suits or most formal attire that they own. In the case where a groomsman does not own a suit, we are finding that they come to Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo to rent a suit so that they can dress up for their friend’s wedding.

As you can see, you have plenty of flexibility on how to dress your wedding party if you are splitting your celebration into two parts: suits and tuxedos for the minimony or micro wedding and larger celebration at a later date when COVID-19 restrictions are hopefully lifted.

We have plenty of experience dressing brides, grooms, bridesmaids, ring bearers, mothers and fathers. Let Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo help guide you to your dream wedding look.
