#WeddingWednesday: Accessories for the Groom
As the groom showing up on your wedding day dressed in a simple suit and tie is not your only option. There are numerous ways to accessorize your look in a classy way that sets you apart from the group. Check out these ideas when deciding what accessories to include in your wedding day attire.
Cuff links are a nice way to personalize your suit. You can select cuff links that include a character quote from your favorite movie as seen below. Another option is to personalize your cuff links with you and your partner’s initials and wedding date so that you will always have a special piece memorializing the day.
Don’t just choose to wear any old pair of shoes on your wedding day! First of all, the shoes must be new so do not just select the pair that you usually wear to formal events from your closet. You will want to look sleek, clean and in love on your wedding day. Personalize your shoes with a phrase like the one below to get the perfect picture moment on your day.
Ensure that you will remain on schedule on your wedding day by wearing a watch. It is a stylish addition that will not go unnoticed on your wedding day. Your guests will be complimenting you for your choice of accessories. (If you are looking for accessories to give your groom on your wedding day this is the perfect choice! Just add a sweet note in relation to time such as “See you at 2” or “Don’t be late” to include a personalized touch.)
Keep your tie fastened in style with a tie bar. Personalize the tie bar with a romantic quote or you and your partner’s initials and wedding date. Choose a color that goes well with the wedding colors you have chosen for your day.
If you plan to have a more casual wedding, skip the suit and wear suspenders over your dress shirt. Suspenders are an ever growing wedding trend for the groom. You can wear suspenders in your wedding color to maintain cohesion with the day. They are stylish and they will be a lot lighter than a suit.
Add a pop of color to your suit with a pocket square. The pocket square is the perfect piece to add a sense of elegance to your attire. Wear a different color than your groomsmen to stand out as the groom for those who may not know you yet.
Get crazy with your attire by wearing unexpected knee high socks on your wedding day. Choose superhero, argyle, wacky colors, etc to wear and have your groomsmen join in on the fun. It will add a funny photo to your wedding album for all to enjoy. Your guests will be surprised when they see you roll up your pants to reveal your socks for the photo.
