Have you thought about what kind of wedding ceremony you and your partner would like? Traditionally, weddings in Ireland were held on a Saturday and were a church affair, but now there are a lot more options available. More and more couples are now opting for non-religious civil or humanist ceremonies.
Life in the modern world is often stressful, job interviews, money, work-life balance, even traffic, but most of us find ways to deal with it. To keep things in perspective, think about planning a wedding like starting a new project at work, launching a new product or service, or trying to achieve a new sales target.

Hint-hint - don't leave it all to the bride or you might end up with a Bridezilla on your hands.
Agreeing on a guest list can be one of the most difficult parts of wedding planning and is not to be taken lightly as the number of guests you invite can have a huge effect on your budget and the capacity needed at your wedding venue.

So, if you are wondering how to decide who to invite to your wedding Well Groomed has put together these practical tips to plan a guest list both your bride-to-be and budget will agree with.
OK, so we've established by now that if you want to look good on the big day, whether you are the groom, groomsman or best man, only a perfect fitting wedding suit will do. If you missed our previous articles, I suggest you read ouressential guide to wedding suitsbefore you sink your teeth into this one.
To perfect the look the suit should then be paired with a good quality (and ironed!) shirt and topped off with some well-chosen accessories. But, weddings don't have to be all about formal silk cravats and cummerbunds these days. Even if you'rerenting your suits, it doesn't mean your wedding photos should be a carbon copy of the people who rented them before you. Try switching up your look from the traditional with something a little more fun and original.
