TALAR'S STORY: MEN'S TUXEDOS

With only two pre-wedding blogs left, Serj and I are so excited that it's finally May and our countdown is getting shorter and shorter! Today's blog is all about the men!

Choosing their attire is the main decision we had to make for all the men involved in the wedding. The first step in the process was deciding whether the gentlemen would be wearing tuxes or suits. After some advice and some of our own research we decided to go with rented tuxes. In addition to our 6 man wedding party, we also wanted to rent tuxes for our dads and Serj's younger brothers, a grand total of 11 tuxes! So after researching for a company that would be accommodating to everyone's schedules and make sure that there were no errors, we decided to go with Bridal & Tux 4 U in Glendale.

TALAR'S STORY: WEDDING DAY DECORATIONS

Decorating the hall is such an exciting part of wedding planning. Lucky for us, Metropol's design is already beautiful and has it's own elegance to which we really didn't need to add much. However, by the recommendation and suggestion of our florist, I started looking for a special head table, specifically a mirror one, that would add an extra touch to our wedding. She had recommended that I look into the services of ZI Events for some options.

TALAR'S STORY: TEA PARTY!

In place of a bridal shower, I decided I wanted to have a tea/hat party with my closest friends and family for some brunch and cocktails. After looking at several locations, I decided on the adorable little restaurant called Favorite Place in Glendale, which by coincidence has mint green walls, one of the colors of my wedding! The staff at Favorite Place Restaurant was so accommodating and their prices were unbeatable! I can't remember hearing a "no" to any one of my questions. They didn't even have a cake cutting or corking fee!

TALAR'S STORY: BOOKING OUR HONEYMOON

Serj and I couldn't have been any more different when it came to suggesting places for our honeymoon. The two things we did know were that we did not care to go any island or water related location and we did not want to go immediately after our wedding. So we each had a suggestion. Serj wanted to go to Europe, specifically France and Italy, and I wanted to go to somewhere adventurous such as South Africa.

TALAR'S STORY: BUYING ALCOHOL FOR OUR WEDDING

Our venue, Metropol Banquet hall, similar to many other halls requires us to bring our own alcohol. Some may think that this is an easy task, but I can assure you that it isn't. First, there was deciding what type of alcohol we wanted. We knew we wanted vodka and whiskey, but didn't know if we wanted red or white wine, or both. We decided on red wine only.
