A Groom’s Wedding Attire Guide | Wedding Details

It’s no secret that weddings are usually centered around the bride, what gown she’s wearing, her flowers, her hair… Unfortunately, it seems like most grooms get lost in the background, but not today! What a groom wears on his wedding day is just as important as his blushing bride, it does happen only once in a lifetime after all! Depending on the time of day and the formality of the wedding, there are many options for groom’s wedding attire, it can be as classic or as individualized as you desire!

The Tuxedo

The most traditional of all wedding attire options is the tuxedo. Generally, tuxedos are black or navy and are worn with a pleated white button down and cumberbund or vest. While grooms have had more liberty to personalize their look in recent years, the tuxedo remains the dominant option for nighttime weddings and formal affairs. On distinguishing tuxedos from suits, tuxedos are more tailored and also incorporate an element of silk, often on the collar, pockets, and sides of the pants. All in all, tuxedos exude a classic elegance that is unmatched by any other attire option.

The Suit

Not all men feel comfortable in a tuxedo; perhaps it’s not fitting for his personality or the weather will be too warm for an all-black ensemble. Whatever the reason, a suit provides grooms a more approachable option for wedding attire. Because suits are less formal than the traditional tuxedo they lend themselves perfectly to outdoor and daytime weddings. Suits can easily be customized to fit the tone of your wedding. Generally worn with a collared button down shirt, they can be dressed up by adding a vest or dressed down by choosing a light-colored material.

The Military Uniform

Not only are military uniforms patriotic, they’re also incredibly sophisticated and absolutely stunning in wedding photos! If you are a military serviceman (thank you for your service!), consider wearing your dress uniform on your wedding day. Aside from the elegance that a dress uniform adds to your wedding, it’s the ultimate personalization of your attire!

While there are many options to consider when choosing wedding attire, most important is what you feel comfortable wearing. Your attire should be reflective of not only wedding tone but also of your personality! If you would never wear a bow tie, then don’t wear one on your wedding day either! The more comfortable you are with your attire the more that will translate to confidence and poise on your wedding day.

Mercury Glass Centerpieces & Peonies | Wedding Details

I love to see imaginative pairings within wedding décor; for example, rustic with modern or classic with chic. A trending combination I have seen recently is the use of silver mercury glass centerpieces with really big flowers, such as a bundle of white and blush peonies. These will catch your eye and create a lovely atmosphere of bold silver with overflowing, fresh flowers.

Mercury glass, also called silvered glass, has been around for centuries. Authentic mercury glass is actually silvered throughout the process within each layer of the blown glass, so not only does it look unique, it actually is. It’s timeless and elegant, and it can be used in so many ways, such as candleholders and dinnerware.

Pairing the glass with large flowers such as roses, hydrangeas, or peonies really make a statement in the middle of a reception table. Peonies would be my top choice for floral arrangements with mercury glass because they are big, lush and beautiful flowers, and the endless layers of pedals give off such a delicate look. Silvered glass is versatile and fitting for any season. If you want to incorporate it into a fall or winter wedding, I would suggest using fresh roses in darker colors such as orange and red. Pottery Barn has some fantastic mercury glass vases and I highly recommend to use them around your house afterwards as they’re such great additions.

Don’t be afraid of the shine – be bold! A daring combination can make a big difference in your wedding décor. Good luck!

XOXO,
Allie
