The accessories for the groom are the best way to show his personality more or less discreetly, according to his taste. A while ago I wrote a post about the different groom suits, because there are many Mimètik brides who ask us for advice about your partner’s suit. Today I extend those tips by talking about possible accessories for the groom: from bow ties to vests, through hats. I hope you feel inspired!
Tie or bow tie
Choose the style he chooses, most likely he will need accessories for the groom of those who put on the neck, either a tie or a bow tie. Although it may not seem like it, this is a detail that can make a difference in the look: all eyes will go there.
Think for example in a black groom suit with a black tie. It doesn’t have the same effect as a black suit with a red tie, doesn’t it? Accessories for the groom such as a tie or bow tie is a great opportunity to give a touch of personality, the important thing is to look good! And if choosing between a tie or bow tie is a dilemma because you like both, there is always the option to change in the middle of the ceremony, it will renew the look completely!
If you want more advice on whether to wear a tie or bow tie for the big day, in the post that I have mentioned at the beginning you will find a small guide that will help in the election. Although I already warn you that the groom should wear what he wants most and with what he feels best ♥
Shoes are one of the accessories for the groom in which you must be very sure. All groom suits are more or less comfortable, but shoes can be the difference between enduring well all day and regretting that decision at two hours since the party started.
In Mimètik we have seen all kinds of wedding shoes for brides: wedges, impossible heels, flats, and even sneakers! Well, with the groom’s shoes it’s the same. Not for being more elegant Italian shoes will be the best option: if the groom is not accustomed to this type of footwear, he will not be comfortable all day. Once again: you have to be authentic and dress as you feel.
Essential touches: Watch, cufflinks and boutonnières
Although the tie, the bow tie and the shoes are the most basic accessories for the groom, there are other elements such as the watch, the cufflinks and the butonnières that will give the final touch to a total look.
If you gave your partner a watch at the proposal, it is the best time to put it on. A watch can bring a touch of sobriety and elegance, so if this is what the groom is looking for in his day, I totally recommend it!
It is one of my favorite accessories for the groom. I think it’s a great opportunity to give the look a special point. Some Star Wars cufflinks? Yeah! Or maybe you prefer something more sentimental and choose the same twins that your father married. As I said: personality, attitude.
It is the branch that is placed on the lapel of the groom (and the godfather) and that normally goes along with the bride’s bouquet. It brings a touch of cool color to the groom’s suit and makes it go more in harmony and together with the bride.
Although it would not be considered one of the accessories for the groom as such, the vests can also express personality and originality on the big day. More and more the bride and groom who opt for rustic weddings that do not require a formal blazer. This is the great moment to be seen with a vest with character that defines you.
More and more grooms have funny or different socks among their accessories for the groom. Colored socks, prints, plaid … I assure you that they give a completely renewed air, and create a contrast of fun with the formality of most weddings.
Of the accessories for the groom, this is perhaps the most differential of all. Hats on the groom are a statement of intentions. Whether for formal weddings with top hats, or for rustic weddings with berets, I think it’s a great way to mark style. The risky grooms are the most funny and daring ones!
Another of the accessories for the groom that is becoming increasingly fashionable, are the suspenders. It is a “must” for modern grooms. This way you can have a distinguished and differentiated look but without the formality and sobriety of a traditional blazer. The husbands of our brides Mimètik are super fans of this option!
In short, a special detail
Finally, I simply want to recommend that the important thing is to feel yourself that day. And if there is any type of accessory that has something to do with the couple’s bond, it will be a total success for the groom to consider it for that special day. For example, it is the case of one of the couples of our Real Weddings, Ana and Rait (click to read their story). Ana is from Portugal, where there is a great tradition of working cork. That’s why Rait decided to wear suspenders and a bow tie made of this material, as a symbol. Ana, meanwhile, wore a headband with Estonian motifs, also honoring Rait’s roots. Beautiful! ♥
I hope it has been helpful for you.
Lots of love,
