When Javier Moreno and Christine Alvarez were planning their September 2017 nuptials, one thing was for certain – “We wanted our wedding to be different from every wedding you see,” Alvarez says. The couple envisioned an elegant yet modern affair, with nontraditional colors in a formal setting. Alvarez selected almond colored gowns for her bridal attendants to wear. For the men, Moreno entrusted a tried-and-true menswear outfitter: My Grooms Room in Miami.
In deciding on what the groom and his groomsmen should wear, Moreno and Alvarez deeply prioritized finding something customizable. “Your prototypical black tie with baggy button-down shirts and loose pants was not going to cut it for us. We wanted our groomsmen to stand out from the 225 guests that were attending. If everyone has a suit rented from the same place, one cannot distinguish between wedding party or guest,” she explains. “The color scheme came together once we had decided what bridesmaids were going to wear. We also wanted to stay away from the traditional black or gray suits that people were using now.”
The winning look? An indigo blue suit, adorned with lapels from Shark Tank winning product, The Lapel Project. “We make sure our grooms stand out in a sea of black!” says Sebastian Garcia of My Grooms Room. “My most important goal is to make sure that my groom will be the best dressed gentleman at his wedding. We always want our wedding party on par with the guest or a step above.” Moreno got the James Bond package, which includes two separate looks (a trend growing in massive popularity for handsome husbands-to-be!). He wore a tailored jet black peak lapel tuxedo for the ceremony and a classic off-white dinner jacket to make a second entrance at his reception. “Once we finalized the bridesmaids we came back to My Grooms Room and he had exactly what we needed, from my 007 package all the way to our fathers’ [looks]. The experience was nothing short of spectacular,” says the groom.
