With Summer right around the corner, and Spring in full bloom, we are welcoming yet another season of summer weddings, which is bound to be filled with colors of spring and all kinds of funk. A lot of detail is usually given to the dress of the bride and also the bridesmaid dresses. The whole theme of the wedding is also decided after the bride has picked a color for the bridesmaids. The groomsmen have been somewhat neglected in this department, but we have a feeling that 2016 will be the year that the groomsmen will really shine through with new trends. We have collected a list of fun and creative ideas for groomsmen that will ensure that the bridesmaids have nothing on the groomsmen.
- You can never go wrong with blue.
Wedding suits have usually always been either in the shades of black or gray, which is nice because it keeps the wedding formal and proper. But if you want to go different, blue is the way to go. The shade of blue you want will depend on the kind of wedding you are doing. If you are going for a night function, dark shades of blue will work better; this will also look more formal. If you are having a day function, we will suggest a more funky shade of blue (royal blue, maybe?). It will definitely light up the wedding party and set off a wedding trend.
What’s summer without florals, right? This is not the first time someone has suggested incorporating florals in a wedding, but this will definitely be the first time it’s the guys that are rocking the florals. We are thinking of maybe a cute floral bow tie to lift up an otherwise formal and dull suit. A floral handkerchief in the suit pocket works just as well, by the way.
- Customized Accessories.
One can never go wrong with customized accessories. It would be a good idea to get a word, or a symbol made into pins or cufflinks for the groomsmen. They can keep the accessory and it will be a reminder of the friendship the guys share. Something this creative is bound to cause a stir with the wedding party and we are confident people will be talking about this one trend for years to come.
- Keep it simple
If all else fails, it is always a good idea to go simple. We suggest black tuxedos for the groomsmen. One might say that it is boring and old, but it stuck for so long, must have a reason. The reason is that for some unseen reason, tuxedos work. They look sharp and chic and make the inside them feel amazing, just as well. So do not shy away from the age old tradition, simplicity always wins.
- Lose the Suit Jackets
Your groomsmen will love you for this, suit jackets usually come in for a pretty penny and most of the time only get used unless you hang with a dapper crowd. Save your buddies cash If you're having a summer wedding, let loose and go with the white collar shirts for your groomsmen. This summer festive looks stands out and saves lots of cash.
