Even though I've only had one wedding, I've had the opportunity to be around hundreds of them. I paid my college tuition working in a very busy tuxedo shop. My job was filled with nervous grooms, bossy mothers, fickle brides, and plenty of funny groomsmen. It always killed me how many times the wedding party would start out fun and jovial and end up stressed-out, nervous and on the edge of emotional collapse.
Here are the top ten things I learned from working in a tuxedo shop:
- If the groom is wearing an "It's a Boy" hat...don't ask.
- If the groom hides the hat when the bride walks in...really don't ask.
- If the father of the bride tells you he has a 32 inch waist and you measure a solid 40. Don't tell, just order the right pant.
- If the groom asks about the color, it isn't pink; it's dusty rose.
- If the groomsmen ask about the color, they only have to be in pink for a few hours.
- Never try to get wedding tuxes on prom night.
- Always use rubber gloves when cleaning out the groomsman's pockets after the tuxes are returned.
- Every bride is beautiful and every groom is handsome, no matter what.
- The bride is always right.
- The bride's mother is even more right.
