Well Groomed


Ladies may need to share the limelight as the latest wedding trend is all about grooms taking extra measures to stand out on their big day.

Whether you serenade your new wife in the speech or you want to stand out from the rest of the grooms’ party, letting your personality shine through will grant you the attention you deserve.

Lakeside’s Wedding Executive Rhianne Foster shares her top groom style tips:

Wedding inspiration

While brides are usually brimming with ideas, grooms can become overwhelmed once wedding planning starts. Get the bug from the start by scouring groom wedding blogs for inspiration and consider creating a Pinterest board to share ideas between the grooms’ party to get ideas flowing.

Suited and booted

Be unique and creative in suit styling by adopting small accent details such as a contrasting coloured tie or pocket square to ensure you grab attention. You may wish to choose a bow-tie to match the bridesmaids’ dresses or wear a vintage pocket watch to stick with the theme.

Superhero styling

The big day gives the bride the chance to live out her childhood fairy tale dreams, but what about the groom’s life-long wishes? Become your favourite superhero by adding subtle accents such as superhero themed socks or perhaps themed t-shirts under suits. Some grooms have even worn personalised shoes to reveal a cartoon character on the soles so the guests get a flash of the trend at the altar. This is a great way to inject some personality and fun into wedding photographs that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Start the day the right way

You’ve probably seen images of bridal parties in matching dressing gowns as they get ready for the ceremony. If it leaves you wanting to do something for the boys on the morning of your wedding, consider buying them a gift such as personalised hip flasks, classy cigars or even just breakfast!

Whatever you decide to do, make sure your personality shines through your personal style to make the big day your own.
