Gone are the days when brides got all attention on the wedding day. Today, a groom is as important. Couples are equally examined when it comes to their clothes, accessories and grooming. While most may think that men have very little to do when it comes to dressing, think again! There are little things that every man may over look assuming it is not a big deal but we bet you, it is!
The necktie has always been an integral part of every man’s formal dress code. Thus keeping its importance in mind, every groom must realize the attention required towards getting the look right. Getting the length of the tie right is a job half done! Men should ensure the end of the tie reaches their waistband or the buckle of the belt. The next thing they need to work on is the knot of the tie. There are various ways one can knot a tie but we strongly recommend the suggestion and help of your suit designer to pick one that suits you best. Secondly, the art of knotting a tie is not one that comes easy, therefore take time to practice it several times or get a professional to help you loosely knot it. This way all that is left to do on the wedding day is to put it on and tighten the bits. For those who still can’t get it right, there is absolutely no need to hit the panic button. Zipper ties and clip on ones can solve the problem. But remember, nothing looks shabbier than a messy tie.
We all know the importance of our feet, especially when it comes to standing long hours or constantly being on the move and your wedding day could be one such day. Besides the need to have extremely comfortable well-fitting shoes, it is important the groom takes time to ensure his shoes are well polished and socks are rightly matched. You never know at which point your socks are visible and the last thing you want is strange colored socks popping out or holes and tears.
Lengths & Widths
Suit trials can be an exhausting and frustrating task for most grooms but we assure you the psychological rewards of a well-fitted suit are far more than anything else. Go through repeated trials to ensure the suit fits right as this will determine your look and confidence level on your big day. Ensure the jacket length measures half the distance between your neck and feet, the sleeve length ends on the top of your wrist bone and your shirt sleeve ends at the base of your palm. Ill-fitting suits on the wedding day are a big no-no!
There are several different ways every man can accessorize himself on his big day and getting it right is extremely important. We generally recommend staying clear of jewelry like earrings and chains. Leave that to a casual occasion. Cuffs, pocket squares and bow ties are interesting ways to spark up a suit but make sure you get pieces that go well with the suit. Once again, we remind you that getting an accessory is not as important as making sure it is worn right. Therefore make sure cuff links are placed the right side up, bow ties fit well and pocket squares are folded neatly.
Paying attention to little details helps in creating a fantastic overall look. After all, you do want your bride and guests to feel you are ‘The Perfect Man’.
