What a groom chooses to wear on his wedding day is as important as a bride’s wedding gown and veil. After all, it’s his special moment, too, and he’ll be in the spotlight (and photographer’s frame) right alongside his partner. Consider the possibilities for groomswear, from classic black-and-white tuxedos, to jewel-colored jackets, to crisp shirts and khakis, to bespoke suits. And don’t forget the accessories: A carefully chosen watch, pocket square, your father’s cufflinks or a fun pair of patterned socks can amp up your groom style big time, on your big day. This may sound like a lot of stuff to sort though but relax…we’ve got you covered (and very well accessorized) with our guide on how to choose wedding day groomswear and accessories perfectly suited for you!
