Helping the Groom

 Most times when couples hire a wedding planner, the assumption is that it is all about the bride, and that the groom really does not play a major role in any of the planning.  Some even think that the groom does not get payed much attention!  As a wedding planner, I am very intune with my groom's needs and wishes as far as how much they want to be involved in the process or not.

Recently I had the pleasure of going with one of my grooms to be fitted for his tuxedo. He has been involved in much of the planning, so we have gotten to know one another pretty well. He picked out his tuxedo and did ask me for my opinions as to color of vest, tie etc. He mentioned he would like to have a pocket square to match. The gentleman taking care of him, tried his best to place a pocket square into the pocket, but it just did not look as good as it should have looked.  I asked if I could try it, and  then redid the square.  My groom was really liking how it looked.  He ordered everything, and when he was leaving, he said" Boy, you are really a jack of all trades, aren't you?!

As a wedding planner, I believe it is most important to know all aspects of the wedding, especially when it comes to your bride's and groom's needs. It was my pleasure to be of assistance and to be a part of his experience.


So, just for those that need some advice on how a pocket square should be folded, here it is:

1.Lay handkerchief down flat and fold in half. Next, fold in thirds. Now bring the bottom edge up, like you are folding it in half, but stopping about a half an inch from the top. You are now ready to place the  pocket square into your pocket.  Only about a 1/2 an inch of the pocket square should be showing.

You will now feel totally dressed and look your very best for your special day.

Best of luck!
