Wedding Countdown

Less than one month away the countdown begins, as one lucky couple will be chosen to be married live on FoxCT on April 13th, in an all-expenses-paid wedding. In preparation for this year’s show, I had the pleasure of creating and shooting my wedding sMARt tips in advance this week. Rather than sporting my traditional jacket with pocket square, my producer Irene suggested that we step it up to a tuxedo. To know me is to know how I love, love, love to dress up. Did I mention that I love to dress up? And since I always strive to be the perfect emcee, I immediately said, “Yes, most definitely. Let’s do it!”

I’ve been involved with more weddings than I can count. So with all these requests, this year I decided to put on paper some of my very own sMARt tips to help others in planning their wedding. As a result, Fox jumped in, and together we’ll be sharing them on the air as early as next week. They’ll also be available on

Yes, I “spring” into action early in the garden. Now I’m springing into “action” early for this season’s dream wedding. While the season of weddings and gardens abounds with color, the classic black and white tuxedo reminds me that simplicity and casual elegance is always in style. And I’ll dress for that.
