On a recent Thursday evening in Chicago, WeddingWire teamed up with The Black Tux and The Tie Bar for an event geared towards the groom! Set in the brands’ stunning shared space, this event provided the perfect opportunity for couples to learn more about men’s wedding wear. Scroll down for a peek into the party, captured by Pickman Photography.

 

Experts from The Black Tux showcased their collection of tux and suit styles and offered fashion tips to keep every dude looking dapper for the big day.

Meanwhile, The Tie Bar made sure that no outfit details fell through the cracks. Guests shopped an array of colorfully patterned socks and ties that fit any wedding color palette.

While guests picked up outfit ideas, they sipped expertly crafted cocktails and enjoyed delicious bites from My Chef Catering. After all, what better complement to black tie than bourbon and bites?

Chicago Wedding DJ – Fourth Estate Audio kept the party pumpin’ with classic jams and upbeat tunes. We even saw a few guests breakin’ it down!

Huge thanks to all of the happy couples who joined us, and to our event partners for a fun and informative evening!
