5 ways to personalise the groom's wedding outfit

Written by Katie Byrne - WEDDING PROMOTION

Getting suited and booted for your big day doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your personal style.


It’s your wedding day after all, and you'll find a way to express yourself no matter how formal your wedding with the five ways we’ve listed below…

The suit

Gone are the days when a groom was limited to a black tux on his wedding day. If you’d feel more comfortable in something a little less formal, then why not loosen up with a slim-cut navy suit or, if you really want to go against the grain, one made of tweed. Pinterest’s men’s wedding suit collection can be a great place to start your search for a style that suits you.

The shoes

Once you’ve settled on a suit for the big day, it’s time to pick the perfect pair of shoes to match. This is another great way to express yourself, and as long as you stick to the basic rules in The Idle Man’s guide to matching what colour shoes to wear with your suit, the world is your oyster when it comes to footwear.

So, whether you have a penchant for brown brogues or have your eye on a pair of patent oxblood dress shoes, just make sure you pick a suit to match.

The tie

As the guy from the office with the collection of novelty ties knows, your neckwear is one of the very best ways of expressing yourself as part of a formal outfit. Take a look at the range of men’s ties at Joseph Turner to find colourful designs that will add personality to any wedding outfit.

However, it’s worth pointing out that if you’re going for an unconventional suit for your wedding, you may want to keep the tie quite restrained so they don’t clash.

The boutonnière

Whether you choose to add a LEGO figure to your lapel or just use a bunch of your favourite flowers, it’s a great way to show your true colours, and it’s a wedding essential that not many grooms experiment with.

The socks

Luckily, this poses another excellent opportunity for you to express yourself on your big day, as a colourful pair of socks can be enough to get your personality shining through even the most formal of suits.
