After being chosen as the menswear vendor for The Big Fake Wedding in Longmont last year, I had to consider whether I would want to do it all again in the future. Last year, the groom and groomsmen lived in Lakewood and had a hard time lining up their schedules for the fitting, so I found myself trekking into the heart of Denver during a weekday rush hour. Because of our scheduling difficulties, the fittings were later than desired, and then the suit orders went in during a spike in wedding suit orders. I wasn’t able to deliver the suits until the day of the event, so immediately after the guys put on their tuxedoes for the first time, the photography began. I felt overwhelmed and incredibly gratified by how amazing they looked and how it had ultimately come together in the end.
When I’m working with a real groom on a wedding suit, my work ends at the delivery. I don’t get to go to the wedding, or follow the photographer around, or hear afterward how much everyone loves the suit(s). So it was a treat to spend the day of The Big Fake Wedding doing just that!
What goes around comes around…
Long story short…oops, I did it again! Last week, I got the call from a Big Fake Wedding rep. After chatting logistics to improve the timeline, I agreed to do menswear for the 2020 Denver event. It will take place at Woodlands on Sunday, April 5. [Ed. note: The Big Fake Wedding has been postponed because of COVID-19. The new event date is Wednesday, September 23. I have a limited number of free tickets for engaged couples, so please let me know if you’d like to attend!]
