A groom's choice of outfit should be as personal, creative and reflective of their personality and individual style as a bride's wedding dress. Whilst many grooms will pop along to a tailor’s choosing an off-the-peg suit or outfit for their wedding day, it doesn’t always show that personality that makes them who they are.
Grooms can try by visiting different tailors, clothing retailers and vintage shops to see what styles really suit them, that they feel is reflective of them and which fits in with the overall wedding theme. Different fabrics, cuts and styles will be better suited to different groom’s natural style, body shape and personality. Choose a basic suite which you can then build on and accessorize with accents and touches which fit your theme.
Once you have chosen your basic suit you can accent this with touches such as a contrasting waistcoat, tie and pocket square and cufflinks.
For some groom’s with less formal, rustic or alternative weddings, a suit might just not fit in. If your bride is dressing down and you are having a much more relaxed wedding day, think about an outfit which fits in with this theme.
DIY creative touches for your wedding leave you with lots of wonderful memories from the period leading up to your wedding as you prepare decorations or stationary. Making things yourself also means you often get to keep all those decorations after, meaning you can adapt and decorate your new life together with them.
When your evenings and weekends are full of wedding day planning, crafting things with friends, family and your future spouse is a perfect opportunity to spend quality time with those you love, creating things together.
