We always hear about the bride's gown...
"Did she find the gown?"
"She will just know it's the one."
"The perfect dress is out there."
But rarely do I hear about grooms endlessly searching for their tux/suit/khaki pants. Do grooms spend weekends with friends & family, finding the perfect thing to wear on the big day? Even though the groom might not fret over his wardrobe choice, he should stand out against the sea of other good looking men: groomsmen, ushers, dads & grandpas.
I was searching The Knot for some tips on making the groom stand out, and here is what I found. You can see the whole article here.
Alternative Tux Wearing a subtly different jacket from those of your groomsmen is a surefire way to make your mark.
A Fancier Flower A unique boutonniere, a "mini-corsage" worn on the jacket lapel, is the easiest way to help guests single you out.
The Telltale Tie Boost your "all about me" factor by wearing a different colored tie or bow tie than the gang.
Variety in the Vest Pick a vest that's a different color from that of your groomsmen.
