How to make the big day sing

It’s up to you to address the guest list and prep your betrothed (so his bachelor party doesn’t end with “book ’em”). Let us handle everything else. Music to your ears.

The Way You Look Tonight
Kelly’s Closet feels new after a renovation. Get excited for Temperly London (trunk show, October 26th-28th, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; by appointment) while shopping other lines, such as Jenny Packham and Claire Pettibone.

Touch the Sky
Drop it down low from way up high at Meliá Atlanta’s 25th-floor event space, Sky Twenty-Five. With multiple rooms whose floor-to-ceiling windows provide 360-degree views of city lights, you won’t be bothered by sweaty Uncle Ted doing the Electric Slide.

Gift or display DiAmano Chocolate’s gourmet, customizable truffles (chile habanero dark chocolate, strawberry cheesecake white chocolate) and infused caramels (espresso, rosemary, lavender peach). Stamp them with your new moniker or go for novelty shapes (nothing says “hopelessly devoted” like a ganache-filled Buddha).

Sexy and You Know It
You’re ready to get in the best shape of your life, but not sure how to start. The revolutionary Dunk Truck accurately measures your body composition (fat, muscle mass) with a quick submersion in water, so you get on the path to bride body ($50, check locations online).

The number of graphic designers and printers in this city is enough to make Stevie wonder. Consider Sweet Magnolia Design yours for lovely and affordable announcements/invites with touches such as burlap and lace. Or hire the boss in embossing, Jenny’s Paper, Ink, for impressive work fit for fridges.

And rock on.
