Weddings in the modern day have changed a lot from what they used to be like. They used to be extremely proper, traditional and most brides and grooms dressed incredibly similar, no matter what wedding you were at. However, that is no longer the case.
Of course, there are still plenty of traditional weddings that take place, but there is an increasingly high number of more “modern” weddings. These are generally more informal, and the bride, groom and wedding party are generally dressed with a little more character and personality.
So, as a groom-to-be, what should you dress like if you have a wife who wants to dress a little eccentric and have an out-of-the-ordinary wedding? Well, this article will look at a few tips for dressing a little more unconventional for your wedding.
Consider Wearing Separates
When a man dresses for his wedding, 9 out of 10 times he is likely going to wear a suit or a tuxedo, depending on how formal the event is. However, with more and more of these “eccentric” weddings taking place, there is more flexibility with what you want to wear.
A popular choice amongst men is to opt for separates as opposed to a full-on suit. First, you should look for a blazer or sportcoat that you like, then try and locate a nice pair of contrasting pants to pair with them.From then on, fill out the look with shoes, a belt, a tie and other accessories. You have a lot of freedom and customizable options here, so let your imagination run wild.
Of course, before setting anything in stone, be sure to make sure your choice of attire is okay with your bride and the wedding party, to ensure that you aren’t clashing with your fiance’s wedding dress.
Throw in Some Color
Traditionally, brides will wear white at the wedding and grooms will wear a black suit with a white shirt and a black tie. This has been the standard for decades, but things are starting to shift. In addition to the styles of clothing that are common to see on a bride and groom changing, so are the colors.
Color doesn’t have to be reserved for the “post-wedding fun” anymore. A good example attire such as 3wishes has plenty of brides and grooms are flipping the script and wearing a bit of color on their wedding day. You can essentially choose any color you like, so there is a ton of room for interpretation. Of course, there is no need to go overboard with the color, but even sprinkling a little in can go a long way.
Look Online For Inspiration
The internet has seemingly changed everything about the world we live in, and this includes weddings. If you are looking for a unique approach to dressing up for your wedding, the internet is full of hundreds or thousands of different albums and photos that could provide you with information. Pinterest and other social media platforms are also a good place to look at great and unique wedding dresses and suits.
