Guest Blogger: Bronte Price Melbourne Marriage Celebrant
A wedding is an excellent opportunity for the couple and the guests to celebrate their togetherness. It’s a story of love and certainly needs to be cherished with the people closest to you. There are a hundred different things that come into the picture in case of a wedding. It could range from anything between the tabletop runners to something as significant as the couple’s dresses.
It certainly means the most to the couple. It’s the day they will remember for their lives. It’s a day they will celebrate the love they have for each other and make new promises to be together forever. And this is why couples try their best to make the day special and memorable. One of the most crucial factors is how the couple is dressed. Unlike popular belief, the wedding day is as dear to the groom as it is to the bride.
A groom might decide to go traditional or stick to a western formal kind of look. Irrespective of what the groom is wearing, it’s his accessories that take him that extra mile.
A good accessory makes the whole ensemble come together and makes it look extraordinary.
The Hit List:
1. A classy watch is timeless-
Not that a groom would actually have the time to look at the time on his wedding day! A watch is a timeless piece of accessory that powerful men have rocked since ages now. It gives the impression that the man is punctual and sincere. You can decide on a watch that goes with your ensemble; it could be a leather band watch or a classic metallic piece that goes with your suit.
2. A good pair of shoes:
A good pair of shoes does much more than making the groom look polished. The right shoe makes sure that the groom is comfortable enough to do all the running around and standing on his big day. A good pair of shoes will complete the look you have in mind.
3. Belts or cummerbunds:
Traditionally most grooms are expected to wear a vest or a cummerbund along with their tuxedos. However, millennial grooms are ditching the idea and going unconventional. One could choose a good leather belt that goes with the colour theme. It should ideally match the colour of your shoes.
4. Cufflinks are a must:
Unless it’s a beach wedding and you are wearing a casual linen shirt for your wedding! Cufflinks have been a part of the grooms wedding ensemble since ages and have managed to pave the way through modernity too. Choose a cufflink that fits your style.
5. Bow ties or ties:
It’s on the eye level and adds an element of class to the wardrobe. It will bring a sense of fun and sophistication too.
6. A catchy boutonniere:
This can ideally take your dressing game notched higher. It is ideally positioned on your heart. It could be a small flower or a bunch of little flowers. Make sure they do not wither away through the long day.
