Groomsmen Style

We realized that we tend to focus on the bride and bridesmaids more (because girls rule) but today we decided to talk a little about the men in our lives. It's easy to overlook the groom and the groomsmen and focus instead on the brides and the bridesmaid when creating a wedding style. While generally speaking, the look of the groomsmen is pretty simple (suit or tux), there are many ways to liven up the outfit. So today we're focusing on how to accessorize the groom and his merry men!

Who needs dancing shoes when you can wear a pair of Vans slip ons!  Sneakers add a personal touch to the groomsmen's ensemble and are super comfortable! Plus Vans (and Converse) come in all sorts of colors, so you're sure to find a pair that matches your color palette. 

Our good friend Mike just got married, and we loved how all the groomsmen had on suspenders! It created a great retro look, showcased the bride and groom's quirky style, and helped hold the groomsmen's pants on the dance floor!

In addition to the suspenders, skinny ties are a great way to create a stylish, vintage look. We love solid black skinny ties, pictured above, but you can also have them in bright colors to add a nice pop of color to the ensemble!

Or, for another great tie option, choose custom printed ties in coordinating colors.  Don't be afraid to let the groom express his artistic side and  let his personality shine through, it is, afterall, his day too.  We love these custom, silkscreened ties by toybreaker - great colors and lots of different patterns to pick from!

A cute, preppy look is dressing your groomsmen in sweater vests! It's perfect for a more casual or outdoor wedding, and creates a clean and crisp look.

You can complete the groomsmen's look from head to toe! If you love argyle, but want something more subtle,  then dress your groomsmen in matching argyle socks! The socks add a splash of color to the black and gray suits, and you can color coordinate them with your bridesmaids dresses. 

And, while some dress shirts have buttons on the sleeves, others call for cufflinks! Is your hubby to be a total geek?  These, by beadworkbyamanda, are made out of recycled circuit boards and are the perfect accessory for the techie groom. 

Go get 'em, boys!
