Tuxes: MW Tux
While ordering the tuxedos for our guys were easy, there were lots of mistakes when we picked them up. Sizes were wrong, some accessories were rusty, suspenders were broken, my father in law had to BUY a new tux shirt since they ship everything in and didn’t have his size….essentially it was a bit of a mess. But, in the end, the guys all looked pretty good, and thats whats important.
Chad’s tux: Rothmans – John Varvatos
Chad looked hot in his Varvatos tux, and the guys at Rothmans were very easy to work with. They also provide tailoring free of charge, so that was a nice bonus. We had his tux within a few weeks. [hubba hubba]

How the heck do you beat a squirrel bride or a giraffe groom? These cake toppers by Etsy seller Melabo are hilarious!

Remember the save the date contest Minted held a while back? Well, the winners have been announced, and now a bunch of them are finally up for sale! I had a chance during the Stationery Show to meet some of the talented designers and see the new designs…its hard to pick just one!

We thought really long and hard about gifts for our bridal party and parents, and this is what we came up with.
For our parents, we got Jessica Rust family tree platters…at the bottom we had their wedding anniversaries, and one one of the branches, we had ours. We handed them out at the rehearsal dinner and they really enjoyed them!
For the bridesmaids, I collected some of my favorite things from Brooklyn and beyond and tucked them into a Fishes Eddy Brooklyn tote…clockwise from the left: flip and tumble tote, Love coasters from Sesame Letterpress, personalized bowl from Paloma’s Nest, journal from Paper+Cup, and postcards from Simply Photo.
For the groomsmen, Chad bought everyone Faber Castell fountain pens…this black wood finish was really slick. I wouldn’t mind one of these for myself…
