How to Be a Debonair Groom


They say that a picture speaks a thousand words - well, you're going to be in a lot of them on your wedding day, so you'd better make sure that your outfit is saying the right thing!

The groom's outfit is an often overlooked part of the wedding planning, but if all goes to plan, these pictures will be up on your wall for a long time to come. So splash some cash and spend some time and attention on your look, because you don't want to regret it when you're showing the grandchildren.

Of course, you don't want to upstage the bride and novelty options are never going to go down well at a wedding, so the best look to aim for is one that's classically stylish with some personal twists. Spoil yourself with a bespoke wedding suit to ensure the perfect fit. With fittings available at a location convenient to you, you can ensure your suit is a snug fit - you're sure to cut a dapper figure when you're wearing a bespoke outfit.

Not only can you choose exactly the cloth and cut of your suit, but there are also endless options for customisation, including flash cuffs, framed facing, highlighted buttonhole stitching, and monogramming. Add details in your wedding colours, coordinate with your best man or add a hidden monogram of your new bride's initials.

Once you've nailed down a classic suit, the world is your oyster. Make sure the shoes you're wearing are comfortable as well as stylish because you'll be on your feet all day and dancing the night away - and there's nothing less footloose and fancy-free than shoes that rub.

Add small quirky details to your outfit with a monogrammed pocket square or a funky pair of socks; but remember the warning we gave - beware the novelty! That means no cartoon characters on your socks or tie, give any cuff-links that say "groom" a miss, and don't even think about writing "help me!" on the bottom of your shoes!
