So brides-to-be, I have a little secret to share with you on the perfect gift for the groom. Luckily one of my brides introduced me to Peter & Field, located in Chicago. This fab little shop custom makes ties & so much more for the groom. I was so impressed with the whole concept of customizing your groom, that I needed to give these trendsetters a call after I saw the amazing tie they made for my brides fiancé. Included in my blog is a beautiful picture with one of my blush bridal gowns along with the coordinating tie. What a unique way to bring together a complete custom look for the bride & groom. Some other great ideas that they shared with me is customizing the lining in the tie, and custom handkerchiefs & bow ties. I just love this!!! And one of my all time favorite things about Peter & Field is that they have all their products made in Chicago, just like my bridal collection.
