The Groom and Groomsmen Attire

Usually the bride is the one who attracts all the attention at a wedding. She has a fabulous wedding dress, and her hair and makeup are perfect. However, the groom and groomsmen attire can impress too. Making a good plan is all it takes to achieve that.

The wedding traditions dictate that the groom and his best men should wear similar outfits. However, it’s important for the guests to be able to make a difference between the groom and his henchmen.

So, we recommend him to wear an alternative tux. A different jacket from those of the best men will emphasize the groom, and he will feel a little more special on his big day.
If you find yourself among the lucky men who are about to get married, you can use this advice regarding the groom and groomsmen attire:
• you can choose to wear a cutaway coat while your best men should wear stroller coats instead;
• if you opt for a double-breasted coat, put your men in single-breasted jackets;
• you can ask your friends to wear a three-button jacket while you are wearing a one-button version of it;
• you could look stunning in a white jacket for the reception dinner; the boys could wear black tuxes, so, the contrast will be great; the most important thing is that your outfit will match your bride’s wedding dress and anyone will appreciate the beautiful couple you make;
• flowers are a great way to part, so we suggest you to use the same type of flowers for each other’s boutonnieres, but add a special detail to yours; you can use a berry or an herbal accent.

Remember to make nice pictures on you wedding day, because these are the only memories you’ll have in a few years. In order to have some great time while shooting the photo session along with your groomsmen, add some fun elements to your outfits.

The groom and groomsmen attire can imply colorful ties. Your best friends can choose between red, yellow, blue, green or purple ties. Either way, the idea is to wear different colored ties. The result will be amazing and your wedding pictures will reflect lots of cheerfulness and amusement.

Another great idea is to ask one of your best men to provide identical gangster hats for the shooting. All of you will look very cool and mysterious, and the best part of it is you’ll have some great memories.
