Groom’s Accessories, Upgraded

Posted on by destinbayweddings

Groom's Styled Shoot at the Destin Bay House

Twenty-first century weddings are often thought of as the bride’s day. After all, the shows are called Say Yes to the Dress, Four Weddings, and Bridezillas.

But the historically nonchalant groom must make way for the modern groom. A man equally as capable of stealing the show as any breathtaking bride.

This groom is stylish and unabashed. As much as the dress is touted as an extension the bride’s personality, so too is the new groom’s attire an artfully curated expression of self.

Designers are vying for the groom’s attention with an array of accessories that truly beg the question: where did he get that?

Start with the details.

Tie Clips

A tie clip is no longer a mere tool of utilitarian performance. They can be used as bold statements of individual panache, whether monogramed or molded into custom designs. Think: spectacles, an anchor, a sword, a key, a surfboard, or whatever item represents him.

Pocket Squares

There’s nothing square (read: boring) about the men’s pocket square. A single corner of fabric peeking out of his jacket is a major way to add a pop of color.  Rather than matching the tie/bow tie, choose a pattern or color that provides a sharp contrast, thereby enhancing the visibility of each.

Lapel Pins & Boutonnieres

Opt for a lapel pin or boutonniere, or both. Succulents, greenery and closed buds are a great way to add texture and dimension to the boutonniere. Lapel pins (in wood or precious metals) serve double duty as groomsmen’s gift, and can be personalized for the entire party.

Cuff links

Men’s jewelry designers produce personalized and dazzling cuff links. Grooms can create custom styles to complement the rest of their ensemble. Think: a geometric design, family crest, coordinates, or initials.
