When most people think of a wedding, they think of the bride and all she must do to prepare for her special day. But there’s another half to that equation who is equally important and wants to look his best — the groom.
To do that, he needs some unique accessories to bring a special element to his ensemble and help him stand out among the other male guests and attendants. After all, the devil is in the details, and even the littlest thing added to an outfit can significantly impact his overall look.
1. Starting at the Top
A tie is the standard go-to, but not any old tie will do. The groom shouldn’t appear as though he’s heading to the office after his nuptials, so go beyond office wear. When choosing a neck accessory, think about fabrics as well as the season of the wedding. For example, if the celebration is in the spring, consider avoiding heavy materials and dark colors.
Do you want a standard necktie or a bowtie? Each has its own feel, and your choice depends on the message you want to convey. Also, think about patterns and tie accessories to give that extra pop to your look. And don’t discount an ascot because no one says you have to accessorize your suit or tux with only a tie. The possibilities are endless.
2. Bring the Bling
Shine and sparkle can dress up your look in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. You might want to add one-of-a-kind cufflinks to your shirt to bring interest to the hand area that will be the focal point during the wedding ceremony. You could choose a design that has meaning for you and your bride, or maybe your initials will do the trick.
Similarly, consider adding a shiny timepiece to your wrist. You can pick up used Rolex watches for a fraction of the price of a new one, so you don’t end up overspending your budget while accessorizing yourself. When you hold her hand to say “I do,” you want the photos from that moment to be absolutely perfect and one-of-a-kind.
3. Hidden Secrets
Not all accessories need to be evident to the guests at your wedding ceremony. Sure, you probably want a square in the pocket of your suit to bring a pop of color, but what about underneath? No, not that far underneath. We’re talking about under your jacket. After the wedding ceremony, you’ll head to the reception, and it’s likely the jacket will come off when you bust a move on the dancefloor with your new wife.
That’s a chance for you to reveal a whole new look, and an excellent way to do that is to add suspenders. There are plenty of colors, types, and fabrics for suspenders which gives you a chance to let your personality shine.
Don’t forget about your socks. The bride isn’t the only one to ditch her uncomfortable dress shoes at the reception. Adding some playful socks will help change up your look and allow you to show your fun side. After all, it is a party.
4. Dressed to the Nines
Using accessories that accompany you to the end of the aisle to await your bride-to-be can be a memorable experience that will add to your wedding day.
Just because the traditional outfit for a groom is a suit or a tuxedo, that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative and accessorize your look to personalize the way you present as the groom. Bringing in unique pieces is a good way to make your day special and add to the memories that will last a lifetime.
