Grooms are typically overshadowed by their beautiful brides on their wedding day. Not because they aren’t dashing, though, but because of their outfits and accessories. While brides are usually decked in elaborate gowns and accessories, the grooms usually stick to the usual boring accessories that make them look smart, but not all that different.
Take a note from this list to look absolutely stylish on your wedding day
So here we want to tell you: grooms, your bride doesn’t always have to outshine you. Go ahead and take a note from this list to look absolutely stylish on your wedding day and give your bride a run for her money.
Boutonnieres are typically made of a single flower, usually a carnation or a rose. But not anymore. Boutonnieres now come in a variety of unique flowers and flashy colours. Apart from the traditional flower boutonnieres, there are also those made out of green leaves and even from colourful felt for those who don’t fancy fresh flora on your suit.
For the grooms who want to give a little character to your boutonnieres, simply add a little something extra beside your flowers, such as a lego superhero character.
With lapel pins you’re free to let your creativity take the reign
If fresh flora and fauna don’t fit into the style you are aiming for, there is also the option of lapel pins. While you’re mostly limited to flowers and leaves for boutonnieres, with lapel pins you’re free to let your creativity take the reign. There are various options and styles for you to choose from, from the safer flowers and leaves to the more outlandish feather pins to cute customised pins and even a pin that incorporates your culture.
With bowties like these, you might even outshine your bride.
Bowties in itself make for a classy outfit, but why not turn it up a notch by going for bowties in various fun designs (think polka dots and floral) and bright colours to exude both sophistication and fun? With bowties like these, you might even outshine your bride.
Not to be outdone by its brother, the standard necktie comes in a variety of cool and wacky designs too that are sure to perk up any outfit they are paired with.
Cuff links are usually rectangular, squarish or round in shape, often in a dark, solid colour, making them inconspicuous. But ditch the usual designs for these unique and meaningful cuff links made of natural gemstones or specially engraved and designed cuff links to make them, and you, stand out.

If you don’t want too many accessories on your suit, why not combine your boutonniere and pocket square to have florals in your pocket?
