Groom Style

Black Tuxedo

Groom Style

We always admire the wedding gown, but girls don’t forget about your handsome man.  The groom’s style should showcase his personality and the and the wedding location. From suits to tuxedos, ties and bow ties, hats to suspenders, there are many fashionable options for grooms to look and feel their best. Check out these stylish looks to inspire the most important man in your life!

Tan suits for a beach wedding

Warm Weather Groom Style

Light colored suits are perfect for beach or summer weddings. They have a more casual feel than a black or dark grey suit but look just as sharp!  Suits come in a variety of  fabrics and weights and for weddings in hotter climates some suits can make the groom feel as if he’s about to overheat. To keep from burning up on your big day we recommend choosing a suit in a lighter weight fabric (summer weight).

Beach – Groom Style

For a more casual look grooms may want to ditch the jacket completely and choose to rock a white dress shirt and slacks.  This easy going look is great for weddings in the sand!

Check Shirt

Bold – Groom Style

To spice up groom’s style try adding a shirt in a bold color or pattern like the checkered shirt shown above.  Another way that grooms can to make their wedding style their own is to pair a classic shirt up with a bold tie or a bow tie that compliments his wedding color theme.

Let the groom stand out among his groomsman with a look that is all his own.  For example, the groom can wear a jacket with the groomsman wearing vests or the groom in a vest and the groomsman in suspenders.  This look works great for vintage or rustic weddings and they give the groom and his men a unique and stylish flair!

White Tuxedo

Classic Tux – Groom Style

Tuxedos are always a great look for your handsome groom! A black or a white tuxedo is one look that is classic and will never go out of style.   

Groom Socks

Groom in Hat

Groom Style Accessories

Accessories are a man’s best friend when looking to express personality through their wardrobe.  Colorful socks, unique cufflinks, a beautiful watch, great shoes or even a stylish hat will make him stand apart from the rest of the crowd while expressing his personal style.

Grooms can accessorize their groom style and thank their groomsman at the same time by gifting cufflinks for them to wear on this special day.  Check out the monogrammed cufflinks above!  For more wedding inspiration find us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Mint Wedding

One of the first decisions couples should make when planning their wedding is what their wedding colors will be. Wedding color palettes dictate the decor, wedding style and the overall feeling of every wedding.  Each year one color is predicted to be more popular than the rest, and mint is one of the hottest wedding colors of 2013.  From ceremony and reception decor to sweet treats and bridal accessories, mint is a soft and sweet color that is the perfect choice for those that love blue and green.  We especially love incorporating mint into your color theme for vintage or beach weddings! Mix with gold or pink or a variety of pastel hues is pure wedding perfection. Check out some of our favorite mint wedding details and inspiration below!

Winter Bride

Winter Bride

From a chill in the air to snow on the ground, winter brides have so many fabulous wardrobe options when it comes to staying warm.  Accessorize your wedding dress with cozy jackets, add a pop of color with a fitted cardigan or step out in the snow and rain in a pair of stylish boots! Cold weather accents are not only fashionable but they will make your wedding style unique.

Bride in boots, scarf and sweater

Winter Bride

A scarf, jacket and boots will help winter brides look good while braving the elements.  For weather that is not so extreme, try a light weight infinity scarf in your wedding colors.  This is easy to put on and take off, it will switch up your wedding look and will create one-of-a-kind photos.

Winter Bride – Faux Fur

A faux fur jacket is a great choice for winter weddings!  Black, brown or winter white, this look is always elegant.

Winter Bride – Cardigan

Cardigans are the perfect choice for weddings in a mild winter climate.  Add a burst of color and it will totally transform your Winter Bride look!

Nontraditional Winter Wedding Dress

Winter Bride – Glimmer

With the spirit of the holidays in the air, winter brides can choose glamourous attire.  Three Quarter sleeved glitter top over a rich wedding dress is winter wedding perfection.  There is no better time to sparkle than the holidays! Go crazy with sequins, a bolero or a shall.

Bride in Stripped Tights

Winter Bride – Tights

Tights are a winter staple and they are the perfect winter wedding secret.  Nude, black, patterned or bright and colorful, tights will keep brides warm in cold weather without changing the overall look of the wedding dress. And for something super sexy try garter belt stockings :)

Halloween Wedding

Halloween Wedding

Halloween, the time of year where children and adults alike dress in costumes, visit haunted houses and carve Jack O’Lanterns.  While Halloween is most often associated with ghosts and goblins, cobwebs and candy, not everyone is saying Trick or Treat on October 31…for many happy couples, this is a day to say I DO!

Elegant Halloween ceremony

With a black, white and orange color palette, this outdoor ceremony is Halloween chic.  A variety of beautiful orange and white blooms pop against sophisticated black flower pots and bold, fabric accented acrylic stands.

Halloween Wedding – Pumpkin Centerpieces

Nothing says Halloween like pumpkins.  Carved, painted, big or small pumpkins are a great addition to an October wedding!  Use as centerpieces,  line the ceremony aisle way or pile high for a decorative photo booth backdrop.  Small pumpkins are perfect for favors and place cards alike.  Attach tags with your guests names or display at each place setting for fun festive Halloween wedding decor.

Till Death Do Us Part Pumpkins

Turn pumpkins of any size into a work of art!  This is a great DIY (Do It Yourself) project!  Paint pumpkins with a brush or spray paint and add patterns, lettering or cover completely.

Halloween Wedding Cake

Say Trick or Treat with Halloween Wedding inspired sweets! Candy apples, candy corn, decorative cookies…the possibilities are endless!   Ask your baker to create a one of a kind Halloween wedding cake for your October 31 nuptials.  How much fun is the spider web cake above?!

Black Wedding Dress

Colorful wedding dresses are on runways everywhere and a Halloween wedding is the perfect time to rock these modern wedding looks! Love the look but dreaming of that little white dress?  Make a wardrobe change after the ceremony and wear a bold black gown or LBD for your wedding reception.

Masked Bride

Masquerade Ball Reception

We love the idea of a masquerade wedding themed reception…after all, whats Halloween without a costume!  Provide a mask for your guests to wear for the evening and then take home as a Halloween wedding favor.

Happy Halloween from First Class Weddings!

Kauai Weddings

 Kauai Weddings

Cher Weldon and Ron Jones traveled from Colmesneil, Texas to the beautiful North shore of Kauai where First Class Weddings arranged an intimate Hawaiian wedding ceremony.  Cher and Ron’s First Class Wedding took place on one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii on the island of Kauai, officially named Kauapea beach.

Kauai Weddings at Kauapea Beach (aka Secret Beach)

This beach is more commonly known as Secret Beach which is a wonderfully romantic and secluded location to tie the knot.

Inspired by Tori Spelling’s wedding, Cher had a distinct vision of what she wanted for her special day. The result…a perfect comprimise that included a romantic beach ceremony with Hawaiian Ukelele music, an aisle way scattered with orchids, custom sand castle display and a romantic private catered dinner under the stars.

Hale Lani

Secret Beach Hideaway Kauai - Hale Lani

Cher and Ron stayed at Secret Beach Hideaway's Hale Lani (shown above & below), a stunningly gorgeous cottage that sits atop a cliff overlooking the couple's ceremony location on Secret Beach.

The Hale Lani Kauai is secured by a gated entrance and is extremely private. This truly is a perfect hideaway for a Kauai Wedding.

Flowers included an all white Calla Lily bouquet, a traditional Maile Lei for the groom and a white Orchid Lei for the bride. Cher and Ron exchanged leis in a traditional Hawaiian lei exchange symbolizing their love and commitment to each other.

Cher, Ron and their Kauai wedding vendors - including a musician, a minister, photographer and even a sand castle artist made their way down the steep path en-route to the beach.

Custom Sand Castle

It was no easy feat yet First Class Weddings hired professional sand castle builder Julian Miller and he brought in the appropriate tools, sand and other secret ingredients to make this custom sand castle oasis exclusively for Cher and Ron!

Private Kauai Wedding Dinner Reception

This Kauai wedding was lit by Tiki Torches and candle light, Mr. and Mrs. Jones celebrated with a privatly catered dinner in a romantic canopy on the grounds of Secret Beach Hideaway's Hale Lani.

Congratulations Cher and Ron Jones!  First Class Weddings is honored to have been a part of your special day.

Flower Girls

Flower girl with a flower crown and bouquet

 Flower Girls

Flower girls are an adorable addition to any wedding!  While we OOOO and AWE over the dresses, the flowers, and the sheer cuteness of the flower girl, children equally consider this an exciting occassion. Flower girls of all ages are a extra special part of the ceremony, scattering petals, holding signs or carrying a pomander flower ball and walking down the aisle is a moment that you and your guests will cherish forever!

 

Flower Girls tossing petals down the aisle

Flower Girls Tossing Petals

Traditionally walking just before the bride, the flower girl(s) will sprinkle petals down the aisle way during the wedding ceremony. Your wedding colors, location and overall theme can help to guide you in what option is best for your big day. Rose petals matching the bouquets are always a great option.  Many of our brides, having a destination wedding in Hawaii, choose to use orchids or multi-colored rose petals to compliment their Hawaiian wedding and a Haku Head Lei is a great addition to the flower girls overall look!

There are many options for both flowers and flower girl baskets to make your wedding unique.  Woven, adorned with flowers or moss, accented with ribbons or even monogrammed with the bride and grooms initials are all cute…the possibilities are endless! To make your flower girls feel extra special, attach a wooden sign, or paint her name onto the basket.

 

"Here Comes The Bride" flower girl sign

Flower Girl Sign

A more modern role for the flower girls are to carry a sign down the aisle. This is a trend that we can’t seem to get enough of, and your guests will feel the same! A slab of wood or a printed banner with the words “Here Comes The Bride” or a personalized sign that reads “Uncle Jessie, Here Comes Your Girl!” is an adorable way to announce the bride!

 

Flower girl carrying a flower pomader

Flower Girls Pomander Ball

One option we love is having flower girls carry a Pomander Ball.  This flower ball is great for children who may be nervous (or too young) to scatter flower petals.  Pomanders can also be a great decorative option for your wedding reception.  Use as chair decor, hang them in trees, line an aisle way, doorway or place on table tops as reception centerpieces.

 

Flower Girl being pulled in a wagon

Flower Girl Wagon

When the time comes to walk down the aisle things can go super smoothly or slightly unpredictable.   We have had flower girls go from happy to sad and tired to terrified in a matter of minutes. Having a rehearsal the evening before or having several flower girls (especially for young girls) can help ease the walk down the isle. For the very young, we recommend having either an adult or an older child accompany them down the aisle.  We also love the idea of pulling young cuties in a wagon as seen above!

 

Custom Flower Girl dress and headband

Flower Girls Attire

Of course you can’t forget about flower girl fashion!  Go traditional or dress your flower girls in fun tutu’s or petticoats. Add flower headbands to finish off the look. Accessorizing your flower girl to compliment your wedding theme will add even more cuteness to the already adorable kiddos!

Hawaiian Vow Renewal

Hawaii Vow Renewal – 30 years strong!

Pege & Lenny Fischman celebrated their 30 year Hawaiian vow renewal with First Class Weddings. We are extremely honored to have been chosen to share in this emotionally charged and deeply heart-felt occasion. The Fischman’s and their two sons traveled all the way from Jupiter Florida so this was an extra special treat for us.

Pege Fischman

When First Class Weddings started planning with Pege in June of 2012 she specifically requested a small and private beach location. Although they were staying at the Puamana Condo’s on the West side of the island, we felt that a beach located 45 minutes away on the South shore of Maui would provide exactly what she was looking for.

Beach Wedding

After a few short months of planning, obtaining a Hawaii beach permit, hand selecting the perfect minister and securing one of the finest photographers on Maui, Pege and Lenny were re-married on August 16, 2012. The minister officially started the ceremony by blowing the Conch Shell.

Beach Wedding

Shortly after the ceremony started the couple laughed as they recalled memories and told stories of their past.  Precious memories for sure!

Beach Wedding

The Hawaiian island weather was perfect as Pege & Lenny yet again shared one of the most memorable days of their lives together.

Beach Wedding

Pege & Lenny have endured so much over the years and even told us that there were times that they thought they wouldn’t make it….yet here they are. This couple truly has what it takes to endure whatever life dishes out.

Beach Wedding

Pege’s bouquet consisted of pink ginger, cymbidium orchids, and dendrobium orchids.

Beach Wedding

First Class Weddings loves Hawaiian Vow Renewals and we completely adore Pege & Lenny Fischman!

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Fischman & Family!

Fall Wedding

Bridal Party throwing fall leaves

Fall Wedding

It is time to embrace the changing of the leaves and the return of the rich colors of fall! There are many different decorative options to choose from that will make your fall wedding reflect the spirit of the season! Stick to the traditional fall color palette of brown, orange, red and yellow or opt for a wedding with richer tones such as merlot, plum or moss green.  Incorporate leaves and greenery or pumpkins and pie into your decor for a wedding celebration that screams fall!

Fall color wedding bouquets

Fall Wedding Bouquets

Mix a burst of color into bouquets and floral arrangements and give your decor an unexpected twist.  We love that fall’s hottest hues are mixed with the lavender roses in the above bouquets!  Lavender is one color that you may not traditionally associate with fall but by adding in this pop of color the arrangements are truly transformed.

Wooden Wedding Arch

Fall Wedding Arch

Fall is the perfect season to incorporate a woodsy, rustic vibe into your wedding and this natural ceremony arch is the perfect example!  Wooden table and chairs, an unfinished slab of wood with table numbers and names as a seating display or tree stump cake/flower stands will give your entire reception a rustic feel.

Pumpkin Ceremony decor

Pumpkin Wedding Decor

Pumpkins are one of the staples of fall and they are great additions to your fall wedding decor.  Pumpkin vases with fresh blooms, a pumpkin patch venue or a pumpkin lined aisle way are all creative ideas. Continue this theme into your food and beverage choices by featuring a dessert table where pumpkin pies are accompanies by other fall favorites such as caramel apples or cider with cinnamon sticks.

Rock and Roll Fall Wedding

Mix your passion into your wedding.  A record guestbook, beautiful fall flowers and your favorite beer makes for a fun celebration for the rock and roll loving couple!  Display them in a wooden crate and you’ve got a fabulous photo op reflecting your wedding style!  This photo is from a First Class Weddings Rock and Roll wedding inspiration shoot. There are more great fall wedding inspiration photos to come so keep checking back!

Fall Chair Decor

Wheat chair decor

Fall Wedding Chair Decor

Chair decor is a great way to incorporate fall into your wedding.  Adorn your ceremony chairs with fall accents as seen with the  orange and green, twig and berry chair decor above.  Another great fall accent, wheat! Whether chair decor or a bridal bouquet, wheat is a fall wedding favorite.

Bride in cowboy boots

The colder weather means fall brides can rock boots and jackets! For bridesmaids or brides, cowboy boots paired with a dress make the perfect fashion statement. A shrug, cardigan or a faux fur jacket will keep you warm and stylish.

Whether your wedding has a few fall accents or is a full on celebration of the season, we’ve got you covered! First Class Weddings can help you plan your fall wedding and provide you with great wedding inspiration.  Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Mismatched Bridesmaids

Patterend and solid bridesmaid dresses

Mismatched Bridesmaid Maxi Dresses

There is a new trend in wedding attire….mismatched bridesmaids! No longer are the days that a bride has to choose one dress to please all of her bridesmaids. Nowadays brides are mixing it up and choosing to deliberately mismatch their bridal party.  Stick to one color palette, or rock a rainbow of shades, go for solid dresses or unexpected printed styles. Mixing and matching your bridesmaid looks creates a wedding style that is truly your own.

 

Pastel Bridesmaids

Pastel Mismatched Bridesmaids

Pastels are great color choices for mismatched bridesmaids as they all go together so nicely! Whether your girls are wearing the same style dress in different colors or have chosen both different styles and colors (as shown above), these sweet shades are light, fresh and oh-so romantic.

 

Rainbow of bridesmaid dresses

Bright and Colorful Bridesmaids

Check out this outrageous burst of color! There is no right or wrong when you’re a trend setter. From bright and bold to ombre inspired dresses, your options are limitless.  Pick one or two stand out shades or go for every color of the rainbow!  Stay neutral with your flowers to prevent going over board.

 

Indian saris in a variety of colors

Some cultures ooze color and therefore have way more experience classically pulling it off.  Pay attention to the vibrant colors and bold patterns of these traditional Indian saris!

 

bridesmaid dresses in a variety of coral hues

Different shades of one color is a great compromise when incorporating more color into your wedding. Shoes can also be mixed up and personalized to each girl’s preference.  Don’t be afraid to experiment ahead of time in order to reach your desired look.

 

Sequin separates for bridesmaids

Sequin and Lace Bridesmaids

Adding bling is another option when it comes to mismatched bridesmaids dresses.  Two piece ensembles can work fabulously for the right personality.  Just look at the shimmering skirt and top numbers shown above.  These maids wore pieces with the same metallic sequin and lace fabric but in different combinations.  Love this modern take on mismatched bridesmaid attire.

Print bridesmaides dresses

 Mismatched Printed Bridesmaids

Stripes, chevron, dots or floral and lace patterns are an up and coming trend that we should keep our eye on! Mixing fabrics while keeping within the same color tones can also work beautifully. We love these bridesmaids dresses!

 

Same color bridesmaiddresses in different styles

Mismatched Bridesmaid Styles

Subtle differences in dress styles can go a long way! Have each bridesmaid choose a different dress in the same color! This will make everyone happy, with a dress that is reflects their own personality and body, that they are sure to wear again.
