Meet Knot The Guy

Happy Wedding Wednesday! 

One key component of a sensational wedding or soiree is amazing vendors. When I learned of local D.C. area company, Knot the Guy, I knew they would be a great resource for my sensational grooms and clients. After all, us ladies can't be the only ones who get the spotlight, right?! Well, Knot the Guy ensures that guys are picture perfect for their wedding day and more. I recently began working with Evan Marbury, owner of the company, for one of my upcoming sensational weddings, and had the pleasure of chatting with him about his men's styling concierge business. Check out what Evan has to say about Knot the Guy and how they can tie the perfect knot and make your event experience all the more sensational!

I absolutely LOVE your business concept! What inspired you to start Knot the Guy?

Evan: Traditionally, the bride receives all of the attention on the wedding day. While appropriate, this often leaves the groom and groomsmen on their own with the hopes that one of them knows how to tie that perfect knot or they will be able to follow a YouTube tutorial. We want to change this.

A men's style concierge service is such a special treat for grooms, as well as groomsmen. What specific services do you offer for weddings?

Evan: Our trained stylists offer a unique experience, second to none. We specialize in tying the perfect knots; be it a Bow Tie, Full Windsor, or something more creative, Knot the Guy will deliver! Studs and cuff links can be tricky, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Pressing services and shoe shines are also available to complete the look and ensure our clients look their best on their most important day of the year. Additional services such as haircuts and shaves are also available. We also have great partnerships that allow us to assist the groom from day one. We can now currate their look for the wedding and get them there tuxedo or suit directly from one of our partners.

One of my brides was thoughtful enough to gift her groom your services! How can other brides do the same?

Evan: Anyone that would like to gift our services to someone else would go to our site and send us an inquiry. We would then respond with a quote for their exact request.

Aside from providing services for weddings, what other types of events do you cater to?

Evan: We assist for any major event. Balls, Galas, Proms, Homecoming, Corporate Events, Bar-Mitzvahs.

How far in advance should a client book you?

Evan: We recommend booking us at least 3 months in advance.

Overall, what can a client expect when working with Knot the Guy?

Evan: Knot the Guy offers wardrobe styling and preparation assistance for individuals or groups for any event. We work with each of our clients as we personalize solutions for your unique fashion and event needs. Knot the Guy guarantees professional, discreet, courteous, and efficient service. In other words we show up, make you look good, bring whiskey, and leave.

Fall Fashion for Wedding Guests...Under $99!

Happy first day of Fall! I don't know about you, but I've been anxious for this season and the fashion fun it brings. I'm all too thrilled to pull out my jackets, boots, scarves and more. In addition, the beautiful autumn weather and foliage makes Fall a very popular wedding season! By now, most brides, grooms and their bridal party have their Fall wedding fashion set. However, guests of these Fall weddings are likely to still be in limbo about their looks. For all the ladies out there who are still on the hunt for that perfect dress to wear to your friends or relative's big day, we are here to help! When it comes to fashion, I'm big on 3 things: style, savings and online shopping. So naturally, I love Neiman Marcus Last Call because they have so many luxe looks for less. When I was recently shopping on their website, I ran across an abundance of looks that would be perfect for wedding guests. Not to mention, they are currently having an extra 30% off  promotion which ends today. Needless to say I got excited, and I had to share the sensational savings info with all of you.

In case you get overwhelmed with all the fabulous fashion at Last Call, I've narrowed my favorites down to a top 10 list below, each currently under $99. My fashion list covers both daytime and evening weddings, and my picks are perfect darker hues to tie into Fall.
