How Grooms Can Personalize Their Wedding Look

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, so you want to look your best. As a groom, you want to ensure your wedding suit is as special and unique as the occasion. Personalizing your tux is a great way to do just that. Below, we’ll explore how grooms can personalize their wedding look to make their apparel more memorable on the big day.

Buy a Custom Suit

Generally, we don’t emphasize what the groom wears as much as we do what the bride wears. Therefore, many grooms purchase generic wedding suits. But if you want to stand out, opting for a custom tux is an amazing option. By going this route, you’ll decide all the details, from the fabric to the style of the pockets. You can even choose the lining and the buttons. A custom suit will be a one-of-a-kind creation and something you can cherish forever.

Accessorize Your Apparel

While buying a custom suit is the perfect option for some grooms, it doesn’t work for everyone and often costs more money. Fortunately, the right accessories make a suit pop, allowing you to personalize it regardless of your budget.

One of the top tips for accessorizing your wedding tuxedo is to select your shoes carefully. As you browse dress shoes, you’ll need to choose between options such as cap toe, loafers, and tuxedo lace-up. You’ll also need to decide whether to wear a necktie or bowtie and the color for such accessories.

Choose the Right Colors

Color choice is crucial in how grooms can personalize their wedding suits. The most common colors include the following:

  • Black
  • Gray
  • Charcoal
  • Navy blue

As you try on suits, experiment with different color options, and choose the one that makes you feel the most confident. When looking at colors, remember to evaluate how the shade of the button-up shirt, tie, and suit all look together. Every aspect of your wedding apparel should complement each other.

Engrave or Embroider Pieces

Did you know you can engrave your tie clip with your initials and do the same for your groomsmen? Some grooms also get a special message from their bride embroidered on the back of the tie or a separate piece of fabric sewn onto the back. These unique touches showcase the bond between you and your partner and make your suit even more special. Making personal additions and changes to your tux makes it easy to look and feel your best on the big day.

    My nephew had a suit custom made for his wedding that he can wear again….. he had the lining printed with pictures of him and his bride through their courtship.

    It’s interesting how traditionally men don’t even buy their suits, they just rent them for the wedding even though they could wear a suit again. But women buy a dress to wear one time, lol.
