Slay on the Big Day: Style Tips for Grooms
For the most part, it’s true that grooms don’t have much to worry about when it comes to dressing up on the big day. A vast majority of them are more than happy to go along with the bride’s wishes, allowing her to choose the color of the suit, the accessories that’ll go with it, and everything else in between.
Just because you can get away with it doesn’t mean that you should, though. This is your wedding day, too, and as the groom, you’ll be just as much the center of attention as the love of your life. With everyone’s eyes fixed on your every move, it’s then worth polishing up some of the details of your ensemble that often go overlooked. Here’s how:
Your beautiful (and expensive) new suit deserves a pair of shoes that honors it. You can, of course, use a nice pair of dress shoes that you already own, if it goes well with the color you’ve chosen for the wedding. However, again—this is your wedding. Don’t you think it would be nice to treat yourself to a new pair of bespoke men’s shoes for the big day?
Custom dress shoes made with quality materials and fitted exactly to your specifications, such as the ones we offer, are undoubtedly the best way to go for any special occasion, but especially your wedding. A pair of Idrese bespoke men’s shoes will be much more comfortable to wear, since they’ll be customized to your feet. This helps if you have especially large feet or wide toes, both of which won’t be accommodated by pairs bought off the rack.
You can also be sure that you’ll be the only one to have this specific pair. Using our online customization platform, you can choose from a variety of different dress shoe styles and pick out various colors and materials for everything, from the shoe laces to the sole. You can also have your bespoke men’s shoes engraved by us with your names or the wedding date to make them more meaningful. After you’ve finished your design, just look for the dedicated section on the next screen.
No suit or tux is complete without a good button-up dress shirt. Again, you could pick one out from your existing wardrobe and be done with it, but we recommend buying a new shirt for the big day.
That’s because no matter how much you clean and press an old dress shirt, its age will still show. It’s particularly obvious when you’ve chosen a white dress shirt, too. No amount of laundering will bring back that bright, pure white color that it had when you first bought it.
It’s not enough to simply pick out a new shirt, either. For your wedding, it’s worth spending a little more on a shirt with fine details. Consider going for luxurious fabrics, fancy cuffs (if they go well with the suit), or buttons made out of luxurious materials, such as mother-of-pearl, silver, or even gold. Pair it with a nice tie that goes well with the suit or the wedding colors.
Jewelry & Accessories
There’s absolutely no reason to leave all the bling to the bride at your wedding. You can further accessorize your outfit with plenty of elegant little pieces that will help cement the fact that you’re also one of the stars of the show.
Cufflinks are a big one: they’re both ornamental and functional, adding a touch of high class to any formal suit. These popular men’s accessories are available in a wide range of materials and styles. Choose a pair that’s appropriate for your wedding—they’re small enough to add a bit of shine but not so much as to be obtrusive. You can go for standard shapes or choose symbols that represent something meaningful to you.
Tie accessories are also viable options. You can go with a tie clip or a tie bar; both help secure your tie to your shirt and help keep the knot in place for a neater appearance. Make sure that your tie bar or clip doesn’t extend past your necktie horizontally; it should only be half or up to three-quarters of the tie’s width. The best place for it to go is between the third and fourth buttons of your shirt.
Alternatively, you can wear a tie pin if you feel that a bar or clip doesn’t match well. These are best placed about a hands-width up from the first button of your jacket.
The one thing you should remember about wearing any type of jewelry to your wedding is to clean and polish them before the occasion. The shinier they are, the better.
With these style tips, your wedding guests won’t just be ooh-ing and aah-ing over your blushing bride. You deserve to look and feel your handsomest and sexiest on that day, too, and focusing on the details can help you achieve just that.
