Your wedding attire should be easy breezy, right? It’s basically a uniform. You throw on a tux, give your shoes a quick shine and you’re off. So how do so many guys still manage to look unpolished at their own wedding? Here’s how you can do it right:
Pick the best but complement each other
Simply put, find the best formalwear, but plan to match your bride’s level of formality. If she chooses a one-of-a-kind Vera Wang white elegant wedding dress, you should go for a classic tux of your choice. On the other hand, if hers is a lace-trim mini dress, you can go for a suit or something less formal.
You’re the groom – be a winner
Accessorise. Buy that sharp new tux. Settle for tails for another ocassion. Break out some new shoes. Get your groomsmen suited up well so they complement your look without looking identical.
Ditch the pleats
Plain front pants are a risk-free choice. Your pant legs should break slightly on top of your shoe and angle slightly downwards. Try on your pants with your shoes for a perfect fit.
Fair and square
For pocket squares, linen is more conservative and easier to fold. Silk is festive and flashy. Choose the fabric that best suits your personality.
Simple silver or gold cufflinks to match your studs and watch metal is the ideal way to settle this.
If your entire ensemble is classic, then you can add one element, for instance, a crimson flower boutonnière. If you do take the ‘less is more’ approach, then just make sure your ‘less’ is authentic and stylish.
