The Groom and His Groomsmen: Wedding Day Attire
Girls spend their lives dreaming about the details of their wedding dresses: Sweetheart or bateu? Ball gown or empire waist? Meanwhile, depending on the guy, a groom may not give much thought into what he plans to wear on his wedding day. While his opinion is definitely important, his attire should be cohesive with the overall theme of your wedding. Here are a few suggestions for letting his (and your!) personal style shine on your special day.
Play It Cool
Lighten up your wedding by adding cool tones to your grooms wardrobe on your wedding day. Cool tones does not always mean your typical white, cream, or taupe. Clean grays may be easily coordinated in your color scheme, while dusty blues may be used as a darker alternative. Neutral colors always give off a refreshing vibe and pair perfectly with outdoor weddings. Stay cool this summer at your outdoor wedding by choosing a breathable fabric, like a cotton blend such as seersucker or linen with a lighter weave.
Experiment with different colors, textures, lengths, and widths of neckties and bow ties. Ties may make or break your grooms suit. Be sure that skinny ties are kept to one or two button suits with a narrow collar. A well tailored suit looks balanced and complete with a crisp bow tie. Pocket squares can add that extra pop of color to bring your suit together. Pair with a complementary (but not necessarily matching!) tie to make your outfit an ensemble.
Jewelry for Men
A brides jewelry is essential on her wedding day. Give your groom his own chance to shine with his own man jewelry(well…cufflinks that is). Cufflinks are fun, unique, and customizable. This could be your gift to your groom or father of the bride by adding your own personal touch. Explore websites like Etsy to see and purchase cufflinks and wedding necessities from all over the world. For a local alternative, visit Quintessentials for more fantastic gifts and ideas.
