The Preppy Groom by Providence Classic - Option 3

The Preppy Groom-Option 3- By Providence Classica

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree and our preppy groom Andrew and I are practically branch siblings. I hail from New England and at my own wedding, took Rhode Island's prep-tastic nautical history to a new level of design obsession. A gorgeous Greenwich wedding in an historic Victorian house? Sign me up!

First of all, how pretty is the name Rosemary? Next to her beautiful and feminine dress, Andrew's got to look classic and put together. This outfit may seem a tad on the informal side, but the quality of each garment ensures an absolutely refined look. Case in point: Ralph Lauren blazer and white dress pants. Gucci horsebit loafers. Rolex Submariner watch. Ray Ban "Wayfarers" in tortoiseshell. Heck, in twenty years, Andrew's outfit will still be in preppy style.

A white shirt (I threw in the prepster's fave pale pink just for fun) with an olive green tie blends into the wedding colors, while cheeky but subtle cufflinks made to look like buttons keep the limelight on the handsome groom. And a fun, quirky reference to Greenwich's seaside locale in this masculine boutonniere (no flowers!) adds a bit of whimsy.* A look that is understated and classic - perfect for this elegant young couple's modest wedding.

Have a wonderful 4th of July! xoxo Abbey from Providence Classic

The Preppy Groom - Option 2

greenwich wedding

Our next bride and groom, Rosemary and Andrew, are hosting their wedding at Rosemary's parent's Victorian house in Greenwich. I love weddings at home. They are so intimate and so personal. As the bride says, their wedding is "modest" with mainly their closest family and friends in attendance.

Rosemary's fiance, Andrew, is very preppy, naming Ralph Lauren, JCrew, and Vineyard Vines as some of his favorite stores. So, what will he wear?

I chose a navy blazer (with brass buttons) and khaki slacks as the foundation pieces - quintessentially New England. Because the wedding colors are olive green, pale yellow, beige and white, I found the most perfect tie and bow tie for the occasion. I love the classic and clean style of the tie. The tie reminds of a creamsicle! The seersucker bow tie is equally amazing with faded green, yellow and red as its main colors. Love it. The Vineyard Vines belt is double-sided, perfect for a no-nonsense dresser. This particular belt has a leather face and a green/lobster face. Totally preppy. All Andrew has to do is add their wedding colors to his socks! While I'm absolutely certain that the wedding will be sunny and beautiful, I found a green tartan umbrella for their wedding...Just in case. After all, it is New England! A preppy look is not complete without something monogrammed, so I found cuff links in Andrew's initials! My favorite piece? The Fritts Rosenow boutonniere, of course! It's one part nautical, one part preppy - totally cool. Finally, for the day-after brunch, Andrew can relax in his Vineyard Vines flip flops.

Come back tomorrow for Rosemary and Andrew's third option!

The Preppy Groom

Preppy Groom
Rosemary and Andrew are to be married next June in a Greenwich, CT backyard. Rosemary describes Andrew's style as "very preppy." So, to keep with the summer prep theme, I decided to go with a navy suit from Ralph Lauren paired with gingham in various colors. The gingham could actually be the whole dress shirt for a fun look, or perhaps just the tie or pocket square for something a bit more subtle. In any case, gingham adds a fun spin on a classic navy suit, and it is both summery and preppy. I also decided to add some fun details like a green Lacoste watch and a nautically-inspired keychain (which might make great wedding favors!).
I hope you got some good ideas! -Makiko

Classic Wedding with Vintage Flourish - Take 3 - by Providence Classic

Classic with a Vintage Flourish by Providence Classic
Oh, Kristine and Billy! They are too cute for words! Their wedding? A traditional ceremony with a fun, vintage reception in Ocean City, New Jersey for a couple with classic tastes (J. Crew, Ralph Lauren). She's wearing Monique Lhuillier and so he must match the romantic elegance of her dress. My choice: this Hugo Boss black suit and slim black tie. Its formal enough for the Catholic church ceremony, but also a neutral canvas that will blend in with the party vibe afterward. Instead of adding the wedding colors into Billy's outfit - wine, eggplant, navy and French blue - I left room for the bridesmaid dresses, flowers and groomsmen's ties to showcase them. Heck, Kristine and Billy are the stars of this production - why not stand out?

Slim-toed oxfords keep the look tailored for the ceremony, but come cocktail hour, it's time to loosen the tie and break out the party shoes. AKA - patent leather boat shoes! I love these! What's more perfect for a beach town reception than shoes made for life on the water? A classic silver buckled belt (monogrammed with Billy's initials) and the ever-stylish Cartier leather tank watch round out the look. For a dash of fun? Film reel cuff links act as a sly hint to the two actors' shared passion.

I just couldn't help myself - there are so many cool things you can do with a reception like theirs. How about this Salt Water Taffy cake? A retro popcorn machine? Vintage movie star heels a la Christian Louboutin for Kristine? I would have elegant linens and flowers for the decor, but take the formality down several notches by serving playful, fun food - hamburgers, corn dogs, french fries, lobster sandwiches, ice cream cones, warm pretzels, mini milkshakes, cotton candy, a bright candy table! Hmm, can you tell I'm living vicariously through these two lovebirds?

Hope this made you smile! xoxo Abbey of Providence Classic

The Classic Wedding with Vintage Flourish - Option 2

boardwalk wedding

The couple, Kristine and Billy, is so cute, which is why it was so fun putting their design board together. Kristine describes her wedding as "classic, romantic with some vintage touches." They're holding their ceremony at a Catholic church built in the 1920s and then having boardwalk themed cocktail hour! Kristine describes Billy as, "All-American," who prefers JCrew and Ralph Lauren. So, here's what I put together for him.

Their wedding palette is navy, french blue, wine and eggplant, so I instantly knew that I wanted to go with a dark blue, two-button suit. I also chose a matching vest. If you can't tell, I've been totally into vests lately! I chose dress shirt that is a nod to Kristine's french blue. The blue on blue gives the whole look depth and visual interest. It's perfect for their semi-formal wedding. Then, I went ahead and chose some cognac colored accessories - not only does it complement the navy suit, but it also gives a vintage-y feel to the pieces. The shoes are perforated with a simple, yet classic design. The Pakerson belt and cuff links are ah-mazing. The belt is actually hand-painted! I pulled the whole look together with a wine-colored, striped tie. Finally, Kristine can decorate her cocktail hour with some vintage boardwalk postcards. And, I'm totally obsessed with the leather bound sketch book which can double as her guest book!

Hope you enjoyed this design board! - Sam

The Classic Wedding with Vintage Flourish

Classic Vintage Wedding

I personally love vintage inspired looks, and really got inspired by some key pieces that come to my mind when someone says "vintage"- a beautifully broken in piece of luggage, an elegant bicycle with a story, and an old, rusty key. With these pieces in mind, I've kept the groom's look simple in a beautiful, classic black suit and an eggplant colored silk tie to match the wedding's theme colors. The special little detail here are the gold tone vintage inspired watch cufflinks. The look is clean, elegant, with just that special vintage touch. And maybe the other accessories (luggage, bike) can be part of your Greecian honeymoon! I hope you got some good ideas, and have fun! -Makiko

Groom Style Tip: What's Worse Than Cold Feet? Uncomfortable Footwear!

Grooms, if you're having trouble picking out the perfect pair of shoes to top off your outfit, we've got the remedy!

3 Simple Cardinal Rules to Keep in Mind:

First, It's crucial to consider comfortability when you purchase your shoes. If the shoes fit right, then you will exude confidence and walking down the aisle will be easy as pie!
Second, it's extremely important that your footwear matches your tux or suit and that includes the socks you choose to wear--looking neat and refined is also key.
Third, don't wait until last minute to purchase your shoes because they need time to be "broken in." It's your wedding day and you should be able to dance with joy and absolute ease!

Your wedding shoes will be the first pair of shoes you will wear to embark on your next journey in life, so make sure they fit properly! Unless you have a barefoot-beach wedding, then you're ready to go!

Pink, Red & Black in the Country - Option 3 - by Providence Classic

Pink, Red & Black Country Wedding by Providence Classic
Suit for $398.00; 9tailors shirts in Black Windowpane and Snow for $60.00; Express Silk Tie for $39.90; A. Testoni Shoes for $499.00; Lanvin Leather Sneakers for $675.00; FOX Racing Belt for $17.99; Michael Kors Watch for $225.00
Amanda and her Carhart-loving man are getting married in Addison, Vermont next summer. This is a relaxed, outdoor affair with touches of cute personality (like those buck & doe wedding cake toppers!). With Amanda's dress on the more formal side, the groom's got to match, but still fit in with the casual scenery. I chose a stone-grey suit that complements the tone of her dress, but isn't too fancy. The windowpane shirt in black is a subtle reference to the plaid New Englanders know and love, and a simple black tie adds a touch of formality. Staying in the neutral zone keeps it all a little more masculine, and allows room for the boutonnieres to play up the colors of the flowers and bridesmaid dresses. 
This groom loves FOX Racing gear and I threw him a bone with the black belt, which totally goes with the color scheme and gives a wink to his edgier side. Black men's oxfords work for a classic route, but if he really wants to make the outfit his own, why not wear black leather sneakers? I love when grooms add their own twist. It's so much more memorable and adorably endearing!Lastly, no cuff links for this groom. His shirt doesn't need 'em - and the silver watch is both functional and good-looking. 

I couldn't decide what boutonniere to add - with this backdrop, you can do any color combination! I opted instead for a peony bloom bouquet for Amanda that showcases deep pinks and light blushes. For the boutonniere, adding in a berry, leaf or fern reminiscent of the Addison area (along with a bloom from the bride's bouquet) would top it all off. Voila!
Hope you liked this one! xoxo, Abbey of Providence Classic

Pink, Red & Black in the Country - Option 2

country wedding
Our next bride, Amanda, will be having her wedding in the beautiful state of Vermont. I love summer weddings in Vermont. So charming!

What will the groom, Thomas, wear to this low-key, casual affair? Check it out. The key design element was the numbered back drop. I bet you can't guess what they are! They're actually numbered coasters from Heather Lins Home! I'm totally loving its rustic quality. These would be perfect as framed table numbers (hmm...hint, hint.).

Using the background as inspiration, I decided to warm up Amanda's wedding palette (pink, red and black) with browns and other neutrals. The watch, belt and boots are a great example of this - mostly black with a bit of brown. The pieces are a bit rugged, yet clean at the same time. And, check out the unique buckle on the belt! It's totally amazing. I chose a black vest and pants option without a suit jacket. The vest alone gives off a casual, yet polished look. The red tie has a bit of a pink pattern, which is totally in line with the bride's wedding colors. Then, a pink pocket square to give the vest a hint of color. Finally, the whole look is topped off with a straw fedora!

I hope this inspires your country affair!

Pink, Red, & Black in the Country

Although this is a relaxed country wedding, I made sure to keep in mind the pink, red, and black wedding palette that Amanda and Thomas chose. To keep the look relaxed, opt for a dark suit over a tux, such as this classic two button style by Hugo Boss. Bring out the theme colors in small accents- such as pink blooms on the boutonniere or a colored silk tie. I would suggest not to add accent color to all accessories, which might be a bit overkill. At most, add color to two locations, such as the tie and boutonniere, the tie and cufflinks, the pocket square and tie, etc. In this set, I have decided to put color in the boutonniere and the tie, which is why I chose the black and silver cufflinks.
This look, although classic, gets quite playful when the bright wedding theme colors are added. It will be sure to complement both your bridesmaids and groomsmen, as well as your beautiful gown. I hope you got some good ideas! - Makiko

Groom Style Tip: Don’t Sweat It; It’s Your Wedding Day!

Summer is right around the corner and for those of you with an outdoor venue, we’ve got some cool tips for you!


Don’t think that a bride is the only one who can get away from the hot summer weather. You might not be able to opt for a shorter dress, but you can choose the fabric of your suit. The best way to stay cool under the sun is to go for a lightweight approach. Instead of the traditional heavy wool suit, try a nice linen suit. This light fabric allows the suit to be more breathable so you can endure the summer heat.


As mentioned above, short dresses are an alternative for long heavy gowns, but if you like length and drama, you can always go for a sleek silk dress! Not only is this material extremely light, but it’s also super soft and smooth and definitely great for movement and comfort! If you’re not fond of silk, there are also other fabrics such as chiffon and charmeuse that have the same lightweight and comfort effect as silk!

Look how airy this dress is! It will flow beautifully down the aisle.

How will you stay cool? Let us know, leave a comment!

The Elegant, Modern Groom by Providence Classic

Georgia Groom by Providence Classic
D&G Suit - $995.00; 9tailors shirts in Snow and Stripes - $60.00; Steve Madden Shoes - $99.95; Salvatore Ferragamo Belt - $270.00; TW Steel Watch - $525.00; Tiny Dot Bow Tie; Apt 9 Textured Tie - $30.00; Roulette Cufflinks - $29.99; John Varvatos Cufflinks - $330.00; Anemone Boutonniere.

Our bride Kimberly is marrying her love in Atlanta, Georgia in the spring. The look of her wedding is modern elegant romance, without being too formal. I chose this black D&G suit as the perfect example of classic with a contemporary touch. Think Josh Duhamel when he married that lady who will remain nameless due to my jealousy. H.O.T!

Kimberly's man can go traditional - white shirt with slim black bow tie or a little more mod with a textured slim white tie - or add a little flavor. The striped shirt, which comes off as solid from a distance, can be paired with the white tie or, for a fashion forward guy (and Kimberly's man seems on-trend, wearing Diesel and True Religion), go ahead and mix prints! Wear it with the bow tie, my personal favorite.

I love accessories. And somehow I always pick the expensive ones! But these Steve Madden shoes - with a fabulous thin toe, a must with slimmer pant legs - are a steal at $99.95. A reversible belt will find use long after the wedding day while roulette or gun cuff links add a shot of personality (this ain't no boring groom!). A rose gold and black watch is so handsome - and the mixture of metals is more interesting than wearing silver or gold from head to toe.

I, too, chose a single white flower for the boutonniere - an anemone, classic southern elegance.

Hope you liked today's style - stay tuned for next week's!

The Elegant, Modern Groom - Option 2

romanticFashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

I'm so excited about this wedding! In the bride's own words, she's says, "I'm going for a very 'romantic', classic elegance. Lot's of candlelight." Imagine a soft, muted palette with ivory, white and blush. I'm just tickled by this color combination.

So, here's what I imagine the groom wearing. Let's start with the foundation pieces. I started with a notched lapel tuxedo - it's an updated tuxedo silhouette. Tuxedos do NOT need to have wing tip collars and cheesy ruffles on it. No. Instead I opted for something a little bit more streamlined - a wide-spread collar, subtly pleated bib front and hidden buttons - for the modern groom. Next I chose neutral toned accents. I found mother-of-pearl tuxedo studs and matching cuff links. It gives the shirt a hint of pink, blush and ivory. There are two tie options to choose from. While I normally avoid white ties, I do like this ivory option for photos. The groom can even switch into the black option for the reception. Who says a groom can't change up his outfit?! My favorite piece of this design board is the antique watch. The silvery, creamy look of the watch face (which is actually a silver dollar) is a perfect complement to the bride's romantic and elegant wedding. Finally, I love the brandy glass. Its curves are beautiful, yet streamlined. The bride can surprise her male (and female) wedding guests by offering cigars and after-dinner drinks!

Hope you enjoyed this design board! - Sam

The Elegant, Modern Groom

When does one have a better occasion to wear a tuxedo than at their own wedding? With Kimberly's aesthetic in mind, I suggest a look that evokes classic Hollywood glamour yet keeps the look modern. Pull out the classic tux, but make sure that it's in an updated, tailored fit- such as this Hugo Boss beauty pictured below. Add a skinny tie (not too skinny- 2.5 or 2 inches) to stay with the modern look. Keep the cufflinks sleek in a silver tone with just a touch of sparkle. Choose a silk pocket square in a subtle accent color- such as a shimmering grey or sky blue. To top it off, wear a boutonniere with simple, elegant white blooms. This look is both elegant and modern at the same time. It will be sure to make your groom shine. Congratulations!

Groom Style Tip: Let *Him Eat Cake!

While the tradition of the groom’s cake originated from the South as a way for single women to dream of their future husbands, there is no set in stone rule that says his cake cannot be personalized. The groom should be celebrated just as much as the bride and although the wedding is a ceremonious occasion for the both of them, we can still enjoy a slice of the groom’s personality.

Let's take a look at some groom's cake designs!

What will be the theme of your groom's cake?

Garden Wedding Style by Providence Classic

Emporio Armani Linen Suit - $1195.00; 9tailors shirting in Snow or Blue Windowpane - $60.00; Allen Edmonds "Weybridge" Oxford - $325.00; The Tie Bar Green Silk Plaid Tie - $49.99; Jos. A Bank Blue Plaid Tie - $60.00; Forzieri Mini Flowers & Dots Tie - $135.00; Heather Moore Cuff Links - $565.00 (chic steal - Tiny Token Designs for $60.00!); TW Steel Chronograph Watch - $875.00; Remo Tulliani Belt - $65.00. Autumn  boutonniere by Saipua; Summer boutonniere via Martha

Our groom has an Indian Summer wedding (think early September) in upstate New York, complete with a garden ceremony and reception in an historic barn. No bales of hay here, instead it will be a fabulous fete held in the beautiful outdoors - simple, elegant and with a few fun references to the guest of honor, Mother Nature.

I chose this classic cut navy suit because it's timeless. And Italian. There's no way around it, they cut the best fit for men's suits. And in linen, it's also perfect for warm weather occasions (the old bridesmaid dress adage - "And you can wear it again!" - is actually true for this groom!). The rich cognac brown of the Oxford shoes, belt and watch lends a less formal touch that is just right for an outdoor wedding, while the punch hole details on the shoe's toe playfully reference the barn. 

There are several options for shirts and ties - mix and match as you please! Feel like showing a little personality? Pair the windowpane shirt with a plaid tie. It is fall, after all. Desire a more classic look, with a dash of fun? Pair the pale blue floral pattern tie with the windowpane check. And if your groom favors simplicity, choose the ever-stylish white button down, a backdrop for any color combination. 

And heck (since I was a florist), I threw in two boutonnieres - a deep, pinky-red tulip and berry combination for autumnal contrast, or a fresh, light green option (made of unripe blueberries!) with mahonia leaf for a garden feel.

Who says boys don't like fashion? Those are just boys who haven't met a B&BT stylist. ;)

Groom Style Tip: Pleats versus Flat Front Suit Pants

Often times, a groom’s attire is overshadowed by the bride’s elaborate and elegant dress. Second to the wedding itself, it is the center of attention. However, the groom’s suit or tux is equally important and should be equally as fabulous as the bride’s dress. One of the biggest dilemmas for brides and grooms is to decide between pleated or flat suit pants. Here are some pros and cons:

Pleating for Forgiveness

Don’t be alarmed gentlemen, pleated suit pants are not as outdated as it may seem. While pleated suit pants are more traditional as opposed to their flat front counterpart, pleats are a great way to slim down a man with a fuller figure. Pleats allow for a more relaxed fit by providing more space for the seat and upper thigh.

Flattering Flat Fronts

We have reached the 21st century and flat fronts are the suit pants of the new age. Unlike pleats, flat fronts tend to be more snug and form fitting. These modern suit pants emphasize a man’s silhouette and give the man a more unified and organized look.

Garden Wedding Style

There is no rule stating that grooms must wear either tuxedos or dark colored suits. In fact, growing up in the wine country of northern California, I saw many country-style weddings where brides and grooms fully embraced the relaxed-chic aesthetic of an outdoor wedding.

So, here is my suggestion. Why wear something stuffy? To complement your bride's beautifully simple dress, wear something relaxed yet sharp. Add a little bit of color with a silk tie or pocket square that are the colors of blossoms. You'll be comfortable and feel at ease on your big day. Good luck!
