Peak Men’s Wear & The Wedding Suit


This week I had the pleasure to meet Neil from Peak Men’s Wear located here in historic downtown Bowmanville. It is nice to see a place that caterers to our grooms out there. Wedding magazines always seem to focus on the brides dress and forget all about the men. They want to look there best for their bride, as well most men want to be comfortable.

When you think of attire for your groom you only think of a traditional tuxedo, but men just like woman, have choices for their attire. Peak Men’s Wear offers Wedding Suit packages from $200. Wedding Suit packages include: Suit, Shirt, Tie, Vest and Pocket Square. To compliment your bridesmaids color choice they have 36 tie/pocket square colours. As well a choice of 8 vest colours. Peaks also specializes in ring bearer and junior groomsmen suits, so your wedding party will be looking there best.

So come in and visit Neil and his staff, they have over 25 years of experience and they are there to make your day enjoyable.

Easy Guide to Place Settings

Whether you are planning an informal or formal event, you should know a bit about the anatomy of a place setting. This reminds of when I was in high school, my parents took my sister and I to this fancy restaurant and I was totally overwhelmed. I had no idea what glass to drink out of, or even which one was mine. Now with alot more experience I can enjoy a formal place setting. Here is an easy guide to help you know what to reach for and when.

RULES ON FLATWARE
Start from the outside and work your way in toward the plate as the meal progresses. Usually, the big fork is for the entree; the big spoon for the soup. Any utensils placed horizontally above your plate are for dessert.

WHICH DRINK IS YOURS?
Here’s an easy tip to help you remember. Make a circle with your thumb and forefinger. Your left hand will form a “b” and your right hand will form a “d.” Bread (b) is on your left; drink (d) is on your right.

ONCE YOUR UTENSILS HAVE BEEN USED

It never goes back on the table. When you’re taking a break, rest your fork and knife entirely on the plate. When you are finished, place them diagonally on the plate, side by side, with the handles at 4 o’clock. The knife blade should face the center of the plate, not point out toward another guest (an ancient sign of aggression).

Money Saving Tips


There is no official name for this disease but many brides get it. There are four symptoms to look for, but I assure you there is a cure.

* 1st Symptom

Around three months before your wedding, you’ll begin to second guess your decisions.

* 2nd Symptom

You’ll get scared and think about what you can do to make your wedding better and more unique.

* 3rd Symptom

Then you will ask friends, co-workers and anyone that will listen to you, about what they think of your ideas.

* 4th Symptom

This is the most dangerous, you make a few last minute phone calls and start up-grading a few packages.

* The CURE

Stick to your original budget. As the wedding draws near, your emotions take over…sit back and relax. Your wedding will be as you first pictures it, and your budget still in tack.
