Fashion for the Stylish Groom
Bridal Gowns & Tuxedos:
Taylor Ball of Ford RBA and Roberto Cardella
While a great many books have been published on the iconic bridal gown, men’s wedding attire is often relegated to the level of a footnote. The groom, as man of the hour, shares an equally exciting event with his bride, and he should be dressed appropriately for the adventure.
Depending on the time of day and the degree of formality of the occasion, a groom’s attire can range from sophisticated white jacket or black tuxedo to tailored suits, and many variations in between. Colored ties and cummerbunds, even vests and pocket squares, offer color options to coordinate with the ladies in the party, as well as the color scheme of the wedding celebration.
What’s important is that the men in the wedding-the groom foremost among these-be dressed in the absolute finest attire, which is fitting of the occasion. A fresh shave, a neat haircut, and perfectly shined shoes may be all the accessories he needs. Perhaps some cufflinks that call out his personal sense of style will be the finishing touch. Rather than simply taking a fashion cue from the bride, let’s hear it for the groom who turns some heads on his own.
