Beginning tomorrow, November 6th, I’m starting “First Fridays for Grooms”. What’s that? It’s just for the men in our lives, because they need to feel the love as much as you do. It is completely dedicated to their grooming, wedding fashion (and beyond), gadgets that they will absolutely love, Q&A about the wedding process and how to make it all flow with…ease. So have your groom check out it out tomorrow and you do too.
