Let me tell you a not-so-well-kept secret. As a man, I wasn’t necessarily too excited about my wedding. At least not initially.
And I definitely didn’t have any fun whatsoever with the process of planning it. Planning it was very hectic. It let to fights in the relationship. Raising money for it was a nightmare. And I was extremely nervous towards the end as the day approached. Because despite all the planning in the world, you can’t really tell which supplier will actually show up and whether or not they will come with the quality of services they promised at their office. It’s a real hit and miss game with some of those suppliers.
I went through a range of emotions, excitement definitely wasn’t one of them.
At least not until I tried my wedding jacket on about 2 weeks prior to the big day. I can’t really describe the feeling, but I’ll go ahead and try.
“This must be what Tony stark feels like when he converts into Iron-man,” I thought to myself. There’s truly levels to this game because I felt a power I’ve never felt before. Like I could conquer anything. Any nerves that I had disappeared on the spot. I felt really, really strong. And the reason I think I felt that way is not because of how good I looked. Although I did look good. It led to some good times between the fiancé and I immediately she saw me in it if you know what I mean.
No that wasn’t it. It was because of how different I looked. In a good way, of course. I’ve always been a fan of unique, well-crafted items. I believe we all are to some extent. Which, I suppose, is why luxury exists.
We initially hate the price, but soon come to understand that it’s an investment in ourselves as we begin to admire the effort and craftsmanship that has been put into ensuring we feel like Kings the second we slip on the item. And make no mistake about it, I really did feel like a King. I don’t think I’ve ever felt such a jolt of self-confidence in my entire life. Immediately I wore it, it transformed me into a new me and showed me all the potential I had not previously seen in myself. That jacket had me going to the gym the very next day.
I apologize. I got carried away as all those good memories came flooding back. The reason for this post was actually is to go ahead and highlight why a unique wedding jacket for the groom makes so much more sense, from a financial perspective.
Rather than get carried away again, I’ll wrap things up and quickly explain what the post was about in the first place with the aid of the following short video.
