13 March 2020

I’m delighted to invite another expert to write for me this week! It’s Emma Miller from vowtobechic.com, and she’s got some sage advice for grooms.

Your wedding day is coming up, and you have a few jobs to get done to keep your bride-to-be happy. One of your primary chores is going to get the tuxedos for you and your groomsmen. 

As you get ready to choose your attire, you want to consider a few style tips that are going to be essential to your wardrobe. You may want to bring a few of your groomsmen along with you unless, of course, they have the exact sense of style as you do. Or, none at all. 

You need some style tips that can help you hit a home run on your wedding day with your bride and everyone else in attendance. 

Have a look below. 

  1. Lose the Belt 

On your wedding day, you don’t want to be stuck fiddling with a belt all day long. Therefore, lose the belt completely. Many style articles, speak about how it is much better to find a tailor to make sure your pants fit perfectly. You will find tips on whether a belt is necessary and whether you are better off doing without. 

When you get married, fashion tips suggest that you should do away with the belt. While the tailor is getting your pants fitted properly, have them remove the belt loops. You won’t be needing them.

2. Tie it

Whether you are going with a bowtie or necktie, make sure you know how to tie it. One major faux pas of getting dressed for a wedding is wearing a pre-tied or clip-on tie or bowtie. You check out an article here to help you determine if you are going to go with a tie or bowtie

Make sure whatever you choose to wear on your wedding day that you learn how to tie it so that you don’t have a pre tied look or the clip-on look that will seriously discredit your attire.

3. Accessorize Accordingly

Choosing accessories is a difficult choice when you are the groom. You want to make an impact, but you also want to make sure what you wear is going to “fit in.” If you want for both you and your groomsmen to match in accessories, you can find some ideas here https://www.groomsmengiftsource.com/ that will be ideal for the groomsmen gift. 

If you are the one to provide the accessories, then you don’t need to worry about everyone choosing their own and looking mismatched. Just make sure to choose something that goes with your tuxedo and wedding theme. Plain silver or gold is a good choice.

4.Shoes

Like most things, when it comes to fashion, you may not have thought much about your shoes. Shoes are an important thing to think about because whether you know it or not, they make or break an outfit. Therefore, don’t wait until the day before the wedding to go pick out shoes. 

You need to pick the right shoes for your wedding, and it can be a chore because you need to pick good shoes that are comfortable.  Keep in mind that you have to wear those shoes all day long. Make sure they are comfortable and well broken in.

5. Be You

Your wedding isn’t the day to try out new hair color, hair cut or anything else of a such. You don’t want to debut a new you, and you want to be the best you. There are some excellent wedding hair tips for the grooms that you may want to keep in mind. 

The most important thing to be aware of is that you should just be you. Don’t be outlandish, don’t be exotic or try new things. The best foot you can put forward is the one that makes you who you are. 

6. Consider your Options

A common trend for brides is to have a different dress or alter their wedding dress for the reception. You have that option too. As a groom, consider how you want to be presented or feel at the reception. You want to be comfortable. If the bride changes up for the party, you should too. 

You can find some great clothing options for the reception that you can choose from. Talk to your bride. Find out what she is doing and follow suit, literally. You will feel much more comfortable at your reception if you have a plan.

When it comes to your wedding, you want to be sure that you are ready and look your best. Follow these fashion tips to help you look your best on your wedding day and avoid any faux pas that you might otherwise have not thought about.
