Perfection is the key to wedding planning and knowing you what you want as the bride is usually what goes with a wedding day. Being the perfectly dressed, made up and coiffed bride is important but with that, comes a perfectly dressed and coiffed groom. Thing is, there’s got to be rules attached to the groom party outfits and even more so, the groom!
- The attire your groom wears should be appropriate for your venue and the style of your wedding day. If you have a lavish affair lined up then dressing him top to toe in tracksuit is probably not the way to go. Outdoor weddings can stand to have a little more casual in terms of fabrics used so suits or more casual khaki trousers like those on http://www.birtchnells.co.uk are perfect for a more outdoor wedding instead of a formal affair. The older groom especially will likely not want to go top and tails if it’s the second or perhaps third go round.
- Coordinate your outfits and accessories. It is your style as a couple that is on display so your outfits need to be a joint effort. I don’t mean that he should wear a white or purple suit, but he should have buttonholes that match the flower and colour of your bouquet. His waistcoat or cravat should match the wedding colours and if your venue is extra luxurious, a white tie ensemble is the way to go. Think black top and tails with a white waistcoat and white bowtie.
- Dress for his body. So while almost all men look cracking in a well-tailored suit, especially if he is tall, some just don’t so you have to fake it til you make it! Darker coloured suits are slimming and those of shorter stature should really go for a two or three buttoned jacket that has low buttons so the frame is elongated.
- The fit has to fit! There’s no use buying a suit for your groom if the fit is off so make sure the collar lays flat, the jacket sleeve falls to the wrist and the bottom of the jacket covers below the bottom. Shirts should be crisp and well starched and formal; ideally white so those advertised as part of wedding attire on http://www.birtchnells.co.uk are better than the Laine Taylor range.
- Accessorise! Buttonholes, cufflinks, bowties or cravats all these things can be used to accessorise your groom. Classy cufflinks that don’t have to be vulgar and they can be different to those that the groomsmen wear. This will set him apart from the rest and ensure that he can also feel important.
Contrary to popular belief, the wedding is not just about the bride! The groom plays just as big a part and is extremely important. If the groom turns up in a Mr Blobby costume everyone will certainly notice so you want his suit to really stand out.
