Every groom should keep in mind that all the eyes will be on you and your partner on your big day, and your looks should be perfect. Worrying about looking stylish? Today’s roundup and tips will help you for sure, don’t worry!

Your Look Should Fit The Level Of Formality

First of all, define the level of formality of your wedding: if it’s a daytime wedding, you may wear something more casual, if it’s an evening wedding, prefer a tux or a dark-colored suit. If you need something even more formal, wear a black tailcoat, white shirt and white bow tie for an ultimate formal look, which is a great idea for a luxurious wedding.

Your Attire Should Coordinate Your Partner’s

Show off your style as a couple, make a joint effort to look harmonious together. Make sure your outfits work together even if you don’t want your partner to see your look before the big day. Ask your partner what’s his or her look about to coordinate your own one somehow or better choose your outfits together – this way you are sure to get a working combo and you’ll be a perfect match in every pic.

The Fit Should Be Perfect

Even the most expensive suit or tux will be awful if it doesn’t fit perfectly. You should be able to move around easily—do lots of twists, turns and arm raises to make sure there’s plenty of mobility to show off your dancing skills. Pants should fit comfortably when standing and sitting and break across the top of the shoes so they cover the top one-third. The jacket sleeve hem should fall at the wrist bone with about one-fourth to one half inch of the shirt cuff showing below. The bottom hem of the jacket should cover the butt and the vent shouldn’t pull open. The collar should lay flat on the back and sides of the neck without any gaps or bulges.

Your Accessories Should Fit You Apart

If your groomsmen are wearing similar or the same attire, this point is especially important. Spice things up and wear a special boutonniere or a bow tie, vest, necktie, cummerbund or cuff links in a different color or style. If your wedding palette has two colors, you can wear one of the shades while the rest of the guys wear the other. Spruce up your wedding look with some touches of the wedding theme: if it’s a Star Wars wedding, wear cufflinks with storm troopers, if it’s a travel-themed wedding, add a little globe to your boutonniere. Be creative!
