Tying the knot

Choosing your tie is the easy part; you’ll also need

to learn how to knot it to perfection. If you aren’t com-

fortable with the idea of doing it yourself, ask your best

man or your dad. They may have some tips for you – or

they’ll simply take care of it for you on the big day.

Will you get married

in a NECKTIE

or a BOWTIE?

You popped the question, got a yes, and now you’re plan-

ning every detail of your wedding day. Future husband

– it’s time to think about what you’ll be wearing when you

exchange your vows!

The dilemma is quite real: Will you choose a necktie or a

bowtie to finish off your look? Here are some thoughts to help

you make this important decision.

The bowtie: a classic

You can’t go wrong with the traditional bowtie. Match

it with your tuxedo for a sophisticated look, or dare to be

different with a velvet, knit or wooden bowtie that matches

your wedding’s color scheme. Show stopping looks guar-

anteed in any case.

The tie: a more relaxed option

Thinking of getting married in a suit and tie? Go for it!

The good old necktie has become a popular option for the

modern groom. From the distinguished traditional version

to more avant-garde options, ties are available in endless

patterns, colors and textures. You’re sure to find one that

fits your personal style to a “T.”

Have you decided yet? If you’re still on the fence, ask a

stylist or knowledgeable salesperson for advice.

The History of the WEDDING CAKE

The tall, tiered wedding cake – with or without toppers – is one

of the most widespread wedding traditions in the western world.

You’ve probably tasted a slice or two over the years, but what do

you know about the origins of this sweet nuptial custom?

Historians believe that the concept of wedding cakes can be

traced back to ancient Rome. At that time, it was customary to

break a wafer or loaf of sweet bread over the bride’s head with

the goal of invoking happiness and fertility.

n medieval Europe, wedding guests typically stacked small

pastries as high as possible, and the bride and groom would kiss

over the re-

sulting pile

of sweetness.

The higher

the pastry

tower was,

the happier

the couple

would be.

Sweet, tall, tiered cakes like those seen today in weddings

across North America only became commonplace around the

18th century.

Nowadays, bakeries create wed-

ding cakes that are true works of art.

Anything goes when it comes to the

shape, flavor and color – and top-

pers are no longer limited to the tiny

bride and groom

model.

A symbolic gesture

The tradition of the wedding cake being sliced by

the bride and groom dates back to the Middle Ages.

The gesture symbolized the first action taken by the

bride and groom as a legitimate couple. Traditionally,

the groom rests his hand on the bride’s as a sign of

fertility and protection.

When it comes to your WEDDING DRESS,

white isn’t your only option

When it comes to your wedding

dress, white isn’t your only option

If, at a time in the past, the

boldest move you could make

when it came to the color of your

wedding dress was to pick off-

white instead of a pristine snowy

shade, that’s simply no longer the

case. Like most rules, the one that

dictates the color of your wedding

dress is meant to be broken – and

more and more brides are taking

the plunge. Read on for some in-

spiration.

Did you know that the white

wedding dress has only been

popular in North America since

the 19th century? Before then, it

was customary for the bride to

wear – you guessed it – a colorful

dress! Today, the brightly colored

dress is making a comeback, and

designers from around the world

are reinventing this vintage trend.

While shopping for a non-white

wedding dress might have been a

tricky task a few decades ago,

boutiques are now stocked with

gowns in every color of the rain-

bow – and then some. Whether

you’re in the market for an elec-

tric pink ball gown or an emerald

green A-line, your local bridal

boutique is sure to deliver the

goods.

On the fence about your color

choice because you fear you’ll

shock your guests by choosing an

unconventional gown? Remember

that this is your day and that you

have the final say on what you

wear.

That being said, there are ways

to compromise: you could incor-

porate a colored sash or veil in

your look or choose an all-white

dress with colorful stitching.

So, will you let your true colors

shine through with your dream

wedding dress?

The right way to wear a BOUTONNIERE

Many grooms choose to follow the tradition of wearing a small

floral accessory called a boutonniere on their wedding day. If you’re

about to put a ring on your sweetheart’s finger, read on to find out how

you should wear your boutonniere.

First off, know that this accessory isn’t an essential part of the

groom’s traditional attire and that many prefer to opt for the sub-

tler handkerchief. So don’t worry – you’re free to wear whatever you

think looks best. If you do choose to say yes to this floral adornment,

here’s how to wear it:

• Attach it to the lapel of your suit

or jacket

• Always pin it on your left side,

above your heart

• Choose a delicate or magnetized

fastener to avoid damaging your jacket

• Make it match your bride’s bouquet

(this is not optional!)

• Match it to your wedding’s color

palette

Who should wear it?

If the groom decides to wear a bouton-

niere, all male members of the wedding

procession must follow suit. This means

that the important men in the groom’s

entourage – his father, godfather and

groomsmen, for instance – should all

sport the boutonniere with pride.
