Who says Black Tie has to be Black?

If the invite says "Black Tie" that means i have to wear a black tux and black bowtie right?

Not at all!!

In recent years celebs like Jared Leto, Ryan Gosling and Daniel Craig have paved the way for men to wear multiple colours of tuxedos in different styles from double breasted to contrasting blazers and now even red tuxedos. 

Designers like Alexander McQueen, Gucci and Tom Ford have created amazing tuxes using a variety of colours and fabrics to give men more options in their wardrobes and really stand out from the crowd with an incredible look. 

So if you have a black tie event in the next few months give yourself some colour and strike away from the crowd.

Making the most of your time at Wedding Fairs.

With the Wedding and Honeymoon Show in the RDS just finished we thought we would give you some top tips to make the most of your time at next years show. 

We all know that Wedding Fairs are a big part of getting married, whether you are just engaged and are looking for ideas; in the midst of finalising those last few details or just trying to get your party favours, a wedding fair is the best place to organise this. 

However its important to make the most of your time when your there and go in with a plan and not get too distracted, which can easily happen between fashion shows and free samples. So here are some of our top tips to make the most of your time at the wedding fair:


Plan in advance.
If you know you need to sort out your suits or your dress speak with these merchants first. You will be given a map of all the venders when you arrive and if they are like us they will be showing their best selling suits and their next season collection on their displays usually dressed for weddings so this is a great opportunity to see what looks best when worn. And if you can (not all venders allow this) take photographs so you can review them afterwards. 

Take advantage of the offers. 
The best part of wedding fairs is that there is a lot of special offers available on the day, where products are reduced and cheaper than you will find them online or in-store. So if you are in a position to book anything I recommend that you do. 

Bring support. 
As I said previously its really easy to get distracted at these fairs, which is why I recommend bringing someone else with you apart from your signifiant other who can help you keep on track of everything you need to do and everyone you need to speak to. It's also helpful to have a second or third option on those ever important decisions that your too sure about. 

Enjoy yourself.
While its important to make the most of your time at a wedding fair, you should enjoy yourself and take in the ambience after all its all been created and designed around you and your needs. So enjoy yourself.

All you need for your Ultimate Debs Look

Your results are in and your all out celebrating before you run off to college, and who can blame you? You have been cooped up all year with a book in your face and more practice exams completed than you ever though imaginable. So while you unwind after a long year let us help you with our top tips for getting your Ultimate Debs Look for your last hurrah before you start college.

Know What Your Matching.

As your date may have their outfit already its a good idea to find out what they are wearing and maybe discuss co-ordinating your outfits if thats what you want to do. Either way make sure you have a photo of their outfit saved to your phone before you start shopping. 

Always Go Three-Piece.

A three-piece suit offers you multiple looks throughout the night. We all know jackets usually stay on you just for photographs and are discarded the rest of the night, until the end of the festivities (Usually the next morning) when the dapper gent offers it to his date to keep them warm on the way home. As such the waistcoat not only keeps you warm but will also keep you looking your best throughout the night. So whether its matching or contrasting always get the waistcoat.

When In Doubt Go White. 

Matching ties and bowties to your date can be hard, so don't overcomplicate it by trying to match a shirt to it too. As Robert Browning once said "Less is More." A crisp white shirt is often undervalued but it can really make an outfit into a look you are proud of with little effort. 

Get It Fitted.

Don't waste all your money getting a lovely new suit and not get it fitted. Altering that suit to your perfect fit is the best thing you can possibly do when buying your suit, it helps you put your best foot forward and shows off your great physique. So don't look frumpy look your best. Just be warned alterations can take some time to complete so allow plenty of time to get this done. 

Follow these tips to look the best for your Debs
