THE GROOMS CHECKLIST

THE GROOMS CHECKLIST

Did you get engaged recently? Congratulations! Even if your fiancé, wedding planner, or both are doing most of the heavy lifting in preparation for the big day, we’re here to ensure you get that perfect suit for you and your groomsmen! Tick that off the wedding planning list, we assure you that it will keep your partner happy, and it will set the ball rolling for everything else to run smoothly.

After all, the big day is about both of you, so even if you do have a part in the planning, or you have been told to just ‘turn up on the day’, have a read through our grooms’ checklist for some tips on ensuring you look and feel the ‘man of the hour’ or should we say, ‘man of the day’!


Do stay in the moment. This is the big day, for both you and your partner. Make sure you slow down, enjoy the day and savour all the memories.


SUIT UP:

Looking good on the big day is one of the most important of the groom’s responsibilities. Figure out what you and your groomsmen want to wear, whether it’s a dapper suit or classic wedding tux, but first you must consider the theme of the Wedding. With formal and smart-casual dress codes increasingly crossing paths with many different wedding themes, it’s good to have a clear understanding before you start to even think about what to wear, and the location is normally a good indicator of what to wear.

A tux is a go-to choice for a classic black tie wedding.

Don’t worry about what might go wrong. And if things do go off plan, don’t fret about it. Your guests will cherish the moment and enjoy the day no matter what. Love is in the air and if there is a bit of chaos, that’s fine – they always make for fun stories people will remember!


THE PERFECT FIT:

So, you have some ideas and inspiration for the suit you want, now you are ready to start trying them on and picking your favourite – but you need to ensure it’s the perfect fit! Fit is important with all clothes, but even more so when it comes to formal wear and of course your wedding day!

THE FINISHING TOUCHES:

Now it’s time to complete the look with the perfect matching accessories. This is where you can really make the outfit your own and add the final finishing touches. A rule to choosing your accessories is to always check back with the theme and any wedding colours that have already been arranged, and of course, always refer back to your suit or tux choice.

Start with the tie, where you have 3 main options. A bowtie is considered the most formal, think the classic black-tie weddings. The second option is a tie, whether you choose patterned or plain there are many available in a variety of fresh seasonal colours and styles to match the seasons, like the Autumn and Winter tones seen above. Or you opt for no tie at all, which is for the least formal settings, think coastal weddings by the beach, but then you can choose to add the finishing touch of a patterned pocket square to make your outfit pop.

Don’t forget to plan all your accessories for the big day, right down to your socks. The best man will have the ring, but the rest is down to you.


The shoes are what make the whole outfit and complete the look. Think of shoes like ties, in that you must coordinate them according to your overall look. If you chose a formal tuxedo, go for a 100% European black leather shoe. Brown shoes look great with blue or grey suits, as well as brown holding an association with the outdoors, so it’s an excellent choice if your wedding has a rustic or country vibe. Top tip - no matter what shoes you choose, make sure to break them in at home before the big day.


Do remember to thank your family, friends and everyone who helped make the day memorable.
