It may seem that there isn’t much grooms have control of when it comes to their wedding day, but there is at least one thing…what they choose to wear when it’s time to walk down the aisle.
When it comes to suits and ties, trends come and go, but a groom’s style is his own. And what better way to show it than on that special day.
Whether you lean toward the more casual look or are after a more classy style, here are a few trends and groom styles that have surfaced on the wedding scene that may speak to you as you prepare for one of the most important days of your life.
Turn up the Tweed
If you are having a wedding during the winter, tweed just may be the perfect touch for that rustic or vintage wedding. Now in slimmer fits and more modern cuts, many grooms are opting for the fabric for its warm vibe. But if tweed isn’t your thing, more and more grooms are looking for that sleek look that brighter hues offer – such as burgundy, purple and blue. And don’t ditch the traditional three-piece look just yet. There are plenty of men opting for this style as well in 2018.
Time for the Tie
What you wear around your neck on the big day can say a lot about your style. And today’s groom has plenty of choices, from the bowtie, necktie or no tie. If you go the tie route, be creative and choose one that says you. From floral designs and stripes, to checks and bold colorful designs, it adds the perfect touch to any groom’s attire. Ties not your style? Classy, creative bowties are also making their way back onto the wedding scene. And don’t rule out the traditional neckties, which come in a variety of style and colors depending on the occasion and of course, your own personal style.
Say it with Socks
Want to make a statement on your wedding day? A man’s socks (and shoes) can say a lot about him and his own personal style. Get creative about your socks – by either choosing colorful ones, patterned or even polka dot. Have a favorite super hero or sports team? Show it with your socks! And as for the shoes, remember anything goes depending on what look you are after. From the more traditional wingtip shoes to cowboy boots – let you feet do some of the talking on your wedding day.
Suspenders are also back in style and can help grooms combine playful with elegance. Consider matching your suspenders with the accessories of the bride, or perhaps with her shoes or bouquet. And when it comes to choosing, there are thousands of styles in an array of fabrics so you’re bound to find one that fits your personality perfectly.
Don’t forget the Cufflinks
Grooms are sporting cufflinks these days not only to coordinate with their bride’s ring or dress, but also to share a touch of their personality. From elegant options like gemstones or diamond-studded, or to show off a hobby or even an alma mater, cufflinks are just another way for the grooms to share a piece of their personality on the wedding day. Many are also considering adding a splash of color with pocket squares, lapels and buttonholes.
There’s no doubt grooms have plenty of ways to express themselves on their wedding day. But whatever you decide on, it’s your unique opportunity to show the world your personal style on one of the most important days of your life! ♥
