2017 Wedding Trends from The Black Tux: Online Tuxedo and Suit Rentals

Thursday, July 13, 2017

The world of weddings online is expanding by the day, and this is why I'd love to share The Black Tux with you today! What is The Black Tux? It's a site where you can rent suits, tuxes and more for your wedding. The cool part about it is that they have an at-home try on option for most suits and tuxes, so the fit for your day is sure to be on point! Another great feature is that you can track your bridal party and manage your event to be sure everyone has ordered on time and has the correct size. How cool is that? And what happens after your wedding? You can pack it back up and return it for free - easy peasy! You'll have more room in your closet for your everyday clothes. :) And today, The Black Tux has inspired us to give you the 2017 wedding trends and the tuxes and suits that go with them! See the style boards below and keep reading to find out more about their services...




I know we are having a red, white and blue hangover from the 4th of July, but these colors are so on trend for the entire year! Check out this navy suit and burgundy tie combination. It would pair so well with the navy and blush theme we're seeing everywhere! Check out The Steinbeck Outfit to get more menswear inspiration for your groom + groomsmen!


Are you feelin' the green? We've talked about the greenery trend here on the blog many a time, but how do you pair your suit with this trend? A tan getup is the way to go! Keeping the rest of the colors soft while letting the green stand out is definitely the way to go with this trend. Check out The Black Tux's The Redding Outfit for inspiration.


Neutrals + metallics are perfect for fall and winter! Rule of thumb? Don't be afraid to mix and match silver, gold and copper... neutrals pair well with neutrals! This is totally my safezone, so I can identify with a neutral wedding for sure! And adding in more dimension with metallic shades and even some sparkle can give it that extra pop. Why not dress your man in The Thornhill Outfit or even try the 3-piece Ansel Outfit to spruce things up a bit! 


Dont' get too stressed about wedding colors and matching... just remember, you can always ride out of your wedding on the back of a motorcycle in a leather jacket. (I'm seriously head over heels for this wedding inspiration!). 

You can find out more about The Black Tux and their tux and suit rentals on their website and also be sure to check them out on Instagram!

What to Expect at Your Menswear Consultation from Street Tuxedo

Thursday, June 22, 2017

Congrats! You’ve come to that point in the planning process when it’s time to choose your tux or suit looks for your groom and bridal party! But where do you begin in this process? What is the correct way to go about this? Well, I’ve asked the pros at Street Tuxedo to give us a little guidance in this area! As the longest running suit and tux shop in Nashville, they know a thing or two about shopping for your groom + bridal party. So without further ado, I’ll let them share their tips!

How Far Out Should We Make The Appointment? Let’s just say, the good thing is that Street Tuxedo has four convenient locations throughout the Nashville area (and a Tux Truck! - I’m all about easy access!) And as far as your appointment goes, Street Tuxedo recommends scheduling your appointment no later than 2 months before your wedding. This will allow you ample time to prepare for your special day! What if you need to make a last minute change? No worries - their warehouse is centrally located right in Nashville which makes it super easy for them to accommodate!

Who Should You Bring? Once you make your appointment, the pros at Street Tuxedo recommend that it’s best if you (the bride) come along with your groom to the consultation. Usually, as a bride, you have a vision of what you want the bridal party to look like and if the looks will coordinate with the rest of the decor and colors of the day. With this in mind, Street Tuxedo recommends to keep the meeting to just you and your groom this time around. By all means, you are welcome to bring family members or some of your bridal party to the meeting, just keep in mind that too many opinions can be more stressful than helpful to you as a couple. ;)

How Much Time Will It Take? Street Tuxedo offers free groom try-ons, so you can see your wedding day look in person on your groom! All you have to do is come in to decide which style you're going for and have your groom get measured (which can last as little as 15 minutes if you've got your style in mind). Then your groom try-on appointment can be scheduled. At that appointment, your Street Tuxedo Sales Representative will assist your groom in trying everything on, and you can make changes as you see fit. These appointments typically last 45 minutes to an hour. You would never select your wedding dress out of catalogue and order it without trying it on! So why should he?

What Decisions Need To Be Made At The Tux Appointment? The groom’s measurements will be taken in-house to ensure a great fit for his shirt, pants and jacket. And from there, Street Tuxedo really takes care of it all! From coats, pants, shirts, and shoes to accessories like ties, vests, suspenders, cummerbunds, cuff links, and more, they’ve got you covered!  As the Street team likes to say, "everything but his socks and underwear!" (Although they DO provide a fun array of socks you can purchase!)

And finally, the team at Street Tuxedo wants you to know that there’s no need to stress about your tux appointment. As an engaged couple, you have enough to worry about… and Street is there to take as much stress off your shoulders as they can!


How can I make my appointment? Call one of their 4 locations today and schedule an appointment! Or feel free to email them at

ShaveFace: The Perfect Groom + Groomsmen Gifts

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Finding that perfect groomsmen gift can be a challenge. You want something that each and every guy - no matter how different they are - will love and enjoy (and actually use!). And what does almost every guy on the planet do? Shave! ShaveFace provides a unique product line of men's shaving and grooming products - from razor accessories to beard oil to shaving cream! So whether your groomsmen are clean cut or scruffy, you'll find something for each and every guy to go gaga over. Want to hear more about ShaveFace and how you can get your hands on some of their products? Read below for our interview with James and see for yourself!

Tell us about your Shave Face + how long you've been in business!

James: ShaveFace is a men's grooming company that specializes in natural and organic men's shaving goods, as well as an accessory (The Strop) that keeps your disposable razors sharp for months -- say goodbye to overpaying for razors. We have been in business for just over two years.

How did you get started in weddings?

James: We actually got started in weddings when one of our friends was getting married and asked if we could custom stamp Strops for his groomsmen. We had never done it before but it was a huge success. Now we can include our ShaveCare (Shave & Beard Oil, ShaveCream, Aftershave Balm) in groomsmen packages for a customized gift.

What's the philosophy behind Shave Face?

James: Shaving should be simple, healthy, and enjoyable. And it shouldn't cost you an arm and a leg. We use simple, straightforward ingredients, for the best shave out there.

What are your strengths compared to others men's shaving products?

James: Our products are designed to give you all the benefits of a rigorous skin care routine, without adding extra steps to your daily regimen. The idea is that, as you use our products, they are able to simultaneously give you a great shave as well as treat, hydrate and protect your skin for the day or night ahead. When it comes to The Strop-- we are the only company that makes a denim sharpening Strop (think old school leather strops that barbers would use for their straight razors) for disposable razor cartridges (Gillette, Dollar Shave Club, etc).

What attracts grooms/groomsmen to your business?

James: We have a unique, classy set of products that they have usually never seen anywhere else. Not to mention, they can be customized and they are functional within their day to day lives (as opposed to a cigar cutter or lighter etc).

What is trending lately in your area of focus?

James: Our products make for a fun, new gift that promotes health and wellness. Not to mention, when gifting ShaveFace sets, it gives the groomsmen a set of products to use on the wedding day -- so there's no excuse for the men in the wedding party to look anything other than their best. ; )
