Back + Invites
Wow I have not been on here in awhile. Been majorly busy at work and spending my efforts on the engagement party that we just had (more on that later). Anyways, I’m gonna try and get back to the swing of things and post as often as I can. First order of business…The Wedding Invitations. I’ve been told that you send these generally 3-5 months before your wedding date, while...
Engagement Party (redux)
God I can’t believe I deleted my post from yesterday. It was in my draft, but it had already posted so I thought it was a dup, so I deleted it and the actual post disappeared. Argh nevermind idunno. Anyways, here it goes again. Engagement party: 1) An engagement party is when you (the couple) announce your engagement (duh right?), and usually occurs in the beginning of the engagement....
Saw this story on the news this morning about a couple losing the engagement ring when the guy was trying to propose. As you can guess it’s making the headlines because the ring was expensive ($9000) and on top of that, it was an heirloom from his family. People, if you’re going to have a $9000 ring, please make sure it remains safe. Tying it on what essentially is a rock on the...
Taco trucks and carts
Just wanted to talk more about the food truck option. Like I said, if your venue allows it and it will be easy for your guests to get food, you should definitely consider it. It might throw off some of them but I’m sure it will make for a fun and memorable night. Plus there are so many options out there (if you’re in a urban area). —mouth drool— And this is just...
The beginning of the "Guide"
Its been brought to my attention that this blog hasn’t been so much of a “guide” but more so a collection of tips and ideas. This is all fine and good but I figure I should try to make some sort of attempt at illustrating the steps we (men) need to put together a wedding. Obviously I’m no expert on the matter but I do have a 6 month head start on you blokes, so at least...
Quick Friday post. Kinda tired looking at mens fashion. I would love to just go to the store and get something but we’re having a stylist at our engagement session so I have to do this instead. No we’re not baller…just that our photographer wanted to do this for us (he’s friend with the bride)(and it’s FREE!). Anyways, we have to send in stylings that we like and...
Anonymous asked: are you hot
Styling + Fashion
Honestly, I don’t know much about fashion but I do know what I like and don’t like. So when my fiance asked me what I wanted to wear for the engagement session, I had to do some research. So far, these look kinda good: —don’t you love the fact that when black people wear the exact (close to exact) same shit as white people do it becomes automatically more hip— ...

First post + Engagement pictures
I’ve been wanting to write this thing now for about 6 months. Since I got engaged and we started planning for the wedding, I felt like I’ve been lost the whole time. Just this past week my fiancé mentioned to me that we were having an engagement party (we’ll save the details for next time), and I was completely confused at what it was. Am I stupid? Maybe. But either way, this...
