My Big Fat Green Wedding: The Groom

What does a groom wear and how do you green the groom?

Well for all the pieces the man puts together, boutonniere, tux, shirt, a tie or bow tie, possibly a vest, cufflinks, socks and shoes, here are the options:

1) Reuse items you already have
2) Rent
3) Buy something made out of eco-friendly materials
4) If you buy, consider items you will reuse or keep forever

What did we do? We are very lucky and grateful to have an amazing friend who can help us out. Phu Styles, one of my dear friends and Green Wave Ambassadors, is a top eco-conscious celebrity stylist. She dressed the makers of The Cove for the Academy Awards as well as Ian Cusick of LOST, all of which she put into eco-friendly tuxes. Now my dear husband gets to go down into history of wearing a Simon Carter as well- a tux and vest made out of recycled plastic water bottles and recycled wool!

Ken originally was just going to wear a special Donatella suit that she had given both him and his partner (The Crystal Method played her very first fashion show in Milan!), but we talked him into getting a tux because … the wedding is an extra special day (you have to splurge a little). He didn't want to buy a tux so he decided to rent the Simon Carter from Phu. Ken actually had most of the other pieces as well, including his shoes. The boutonniere, was made from an organic spider mum, and dusty miller leaves, wrapped in twine created by Kim England of Fleurs del Soleil.
