Our weddings & parties designer on keeping your groomsmen well groomed and treats that just may be too pretty to eat (operative word: may).
Centerpiece by Peartree
“I’ve been following @lizalubell, the owner of Peartree Flowers in Brooklyn, on Instagram. I love the slightly off-kilter nature of her work.”
THE BORROWED-FROM-HIM PIECE
Ludlow tuxedo jacket
“Katie, who works here in PR, tailored a men’s tuxedo jacket to throw over her shoulders for her city hall wedding. Genius.”
THE WEDDING PARTY THANK-YOU
Le Labo Cade 26
“My husband and I were married at the Gramercy Park Hotel in NYC, and we gave our best man and maid of honor a candle in Cade 26, the hotel’s signature scent.”
“The most beautiful and functional kitchen items.”
THE GROOMSMEN’S GIFT
Harry’s™ Winston shave set
“To keep the groomsmen groomed. Make sure they shave the day before!”
Hand-painted cookies by Sogi’s Honey Bakeshop
“I love the idea of a homemade treat for guests to take home. Make something yourself or scour etsy.com for baking wizards like Sogoal Zolghadri, who beautifully hand paints and packages treats for you.”
THE AFTER-PARTY DRESS
J.Crew Collection beaded fringe dress
“What’s better for a night on the dance floor than a beaded fringe dress? The mix of glass seed beads, long paillettes and sequins makes me crazy.”
