How to Dress your Groomsmen: 3 Fashion Rules
1. His attire should suit formality of the wedding
The groomsmen attire should suit the venue and formality of your wedding. If it is a formal wedding at a ballroom, the groom and groomsmen should wear a tuxedo or dark tailored suit. On the other hand, an outdoor woodsy wedding might mean dress pants or jeans with button-down shirts and vests. His style should also coordinate with yours. Since you might know the silhouette or style of wedding gown you’d like to wear, pick yours first and then decide on his style together. As examples, a ball gown pairs effortlessly with a classic black tuxedo; a modern chic style gown looks great with a tailored gray or navy suit. The groom and groomsmen should also coordinate with the bride and bridesmaids, particularly when it comes to the color tie, vest, and boutonniere worn. The colors should coordinate and blend with your wedding’s color palette and theme..
2. His attire should fit perfectly
It is just as important for the groom’s attire (groomsmen too!) to be fitted, much like your wedding dress. Just as you wouldn’t expect a wedding dress to fit perfectly off the rack, his suit or tuxedo won’t make him look his best if it doesn’t fit properly. He should be able to move around easily, but the suit or tuxedo should be tailored to fit him perfectly.
As a few tailoring tips to look for, consider the following:
– The sleeve hem of a jacket needs to fall at the wrist-bone with one-fourth to one half-inch of the shirt cuff showing below.
– The jacket’s bottom hem should cover his behind and the vent shouldn’t pull open (when it does = too tight and probably uncomfortable).
– The collar should lie flat on the back and sides of the neck with comfort and without any gaps or bulges.
– Pants should be comfortable to wear when standing and sitting.
– Pants should break the top of his shoes so they are covered on the top one-third.
– A bow tie should fit snugly around the collar.
– A neck tie shouldn’t be worn too high or too low; the necktie should go between the third and fourth buttons of your dress shirt.
– A tie bar or clip should be used to fasten both ends of the placket to your shirt.
– Never wear a tie bar or clip that is wider than your tie. When in doubt, pick a very narrow tie bar.
3. He should be fashionably accessorized
The groomsmen should always dress to impress, especially when it comes to his accessories. The groom should wear something that will set him apart from the others whether a unique boutonniere, vest, vest color, tie, cummerbund, tie clip, or cufflinks. The groom could wear a vest while the groomsmen do not; his tie might be a different color than the others; or he might wear a unique pair of cuff links or don a unique boutonniere to make him stand out. Groomsmen should also accessorize appropriately with a pocket square, dress socks, cuff links, and tie or bow tie.
