Wedding Guys' Wednesday: Take a Break from Pinterest


It all begins with four simple words, “Will you marry me?” And with that question, your life is forever changed. You are no longer a “me,” but a “we.” It is no longer “my dreams, my family, my future,” but “our dreams, our family, our future.” A wedding is the beginning of a new chapter in your life.

But before you walk (or dance) down the aisle, you need to figure out a lot of details.

Enter The Wedding Guys™, Matthew Trettel and Bruce Vassar, recognized internationally as leading authorities on wedding celebrations. Their fun, energetic personalities, keen eye for detail, and passionate love for all things wedding gives couples a fresh new approach to wedding planning.

The Wedding Guys bring years of industry knowledge and trend-forward expertise to Twin Cities couples through their Signature Weddings, Twin Cities Bridal Show, and Unveiled – The Ultimate Wedding Planning Event. They associate and collaborate with leading international couture bridal gown designers—keeping a pulse on fashion trends—while actively working with trendsetting artisans, designers, couturiers, and producers who are leaders in their respective fields.

They will take you from “to-do” to “I do!” in a new eight-part series, “Wedding Guys Wednesdays.” They’ll share fashion advice, answer common questions about ceremony and reception etiquette, and provide the ‘inside track’ to planning your own signature wedding. Along the way, there will be contests and ticket giveaways to the Twin Cities Bridal Show Sept. 21 at the St. Paul RiverCentre.   

Take A Break from Pinterest

There are few experiences in life that will be as highly anticipated and meticulously planned as your wedding day. This is one of life’s celebrations that warms the heart and brings tears of joy. With it, two lives come together; but for most couples, the process of planning and preparation is more stressful than they ever realized.

Weddings used to be simple. There’s no reason they can’t still can be that way. The difference today is that you’re bombarded by media and social experiences, pinning an endless stream of ideas on Pinterest (too many ideas, not enough time) and the opinions of too many (usually well-meaning) people. This overload of input, paired with the tick-tock countdown to the wedding day, can be overwhelming. That’s where we want to help!

We want you to discover new ideas and new ways to do things. Our goal is to provide you with some clarity in creating a styled wedding event. This is the first time we are giving you full access to our creative minds, providing you with the tricks of the trade in designing your own Signature Wedding.

More than anything we wish to inspire you to dream outside the box— to create a day that embodies you and your fiancé. So unplug from Pinterest and let’s experience the world around us, together, to create something that is uniquely yours.
