Your wedding day is the biggest day in your life, so it’s important you look the part, and that goes for the groom as well as the bride. It’s said that a man looks his best in a suit, so it’s only natural that he should look his absolute finest in his wedding suit. Naturally, the hallmarks of a wedding suit include perfect tailoring, crisp lines and a pressed waistcoat, but there are several small accents you can add to your wedding suit to really distinguish yourself from the rest of the groomsmen.
Ways to Accessorize a Wedding Suit
1. Pocket Watch
There’s no better way to enhance the look of a wedding suit waistcoat that with a pocket watch. It’s a great way to break up the block of fabric and draw attention to the pressed fabric, plus, it’s an accessory that can be worn by only the groom to separate him from his wedding party. Whether you’re wearing a plain color suit or a tweed number, a pocket watch will only enrich your wedding suit.
Over the years cufflinks have somewhat lost their appeal as button cuffed shirts have become more populous, but they’re a classic way to add a little extra dazzle to your wedding suit. The great thing about cufflinks is that they provide a groom with the opportunity to express his personality beyond the color of his suit. For an added element of wedding day luxury, a pair of designer silver cufflinks will accentuate your wrists in all the right ways.
3. Lapel Pin
In the same way cufflinks draw attention to the wrists, a lapel pin draws attention to the chest area of a groom. If any other jewelry is going to be worn on a wedding day, the lapel pin should match the metal color. You can get lapel pins that, like cufflinks, offer up a piece of your personality. Alternatively, you could get an engraved lapel pin with your wedding date on it as a keepsake for after the big day is over.
They might sound like an unlikely accessory, but socks are a great way to inject some fun into your wedding day (aside from the fact it’s the best day of your life, of course). You can use funny socks, bright socks, photo socks or ugly patterned socks – whatever takes your fancy! Whilst it’s important to look the part on your wedding day, there’s no reason why you can’t have fun with certain aspects of your outfit.
Brides aren’t the only ones who can wear suspenders on their wedding day – grooms can, too! If you’re not wearing a waistcoat, you’ll likely want something to break up your white shirt, in which case suspenders are the solution to your problem. When the nuptials are said and the evening comes, no doubt you’ll want to get on the dancefloor with your guests. When the time comes, you’ll want to ditch the jacket, but you don’t want to blend in with everyone else, so why not buy a quality pair of suspenders?
There’s a lot to be said about a watch, especially on your wedding day. It’s one of the timeless pieces of jewelry that adds a much needed finishing touch to every outfit, including a wedding suit. For your special day, it’s worth upgrading to a nicer version that your everyday watch. After all, if ever there was a day to splurge, it’s your wedding day, right? Plus, there’s one day when you most definitely don’t want to be late, and it’s this day!
