Thanks to pop culture, we have erroneously viewed the wedding as a woman’s special day––as though the one whom she marries isn’t as excited as she is about the wedding. This isn’t true and the wedding day is a special to the groom as it is to the bride.
More often than not, the bride fashionably outshines the groom. While we are totally okay with that, the wedding day is also the best day of the groom’s life, and he deserves to look his absolute best! Even grooms worry about what to wear for their big day. This is why we have put together some key fashion rules that will take your special day away from tacky to glamorous.
Let these rules guide you on what to wear as a groom…
#1. Match the formality of your wedding
When picking what to wear, ensure it matches the theme of your wedding. Is it a traditional wedding, a beach wedding, or a location wedding? How formal is your wedding? Your outfit has to be as cohesive as possible with the ceremony’s theme, decor and overall wedding ambiance.
#2. Ensure your outfit compliments your partner’s
This is very important. It is your wedding day and all eyes are on you both. Not only are you supposed to look your best, you also have to bring out the best in each other’s outfits. So while there’s the superstition about seeing your wife in her dress beforehand, a little peek wouldn’t hurt anyone as you try to compliment her look.
#3. Remember fit is king
The age old golden rule of fashion! Your suit shouldn’t be too snug that you can’t breathe, or too enormous that you’re barely visible in it. Be comfortable in your suit and ensure it is a great fit. Get it tailored!
#4. Compliment your groomsmen’s outfits
Your outfit should be a blend of your bride, groomsmen, and a unique twist of yours. When incorporated properly, this blend will help make your overall wedding aesthetic very cohesive and visually appealing.
