Time Of The Season: Picking The Perfect Groom Attire
Surprisingly, one of the most difficult aspects of wedding planning isn’t the venue, the wedding band, or even the dress. It’s actually the season you decide to get married in. This has an overwhelming effect on the decorations, the tone, but also the fashion. When you’re choosing the styles, the groomsmen and groom attire can be difficult to get right. So I’ll help break it down into manageable chunks.
The Colder Months
Fall and winter immediately prompt us to consider bundling up. The big issue with fall and winter is that the temperature can vary wildly. To offset this, a vest is, surprisingly, a key component of any fall or winter wedding outfit. You can easily lose the vest if it gets too warm, and it easily goes underneath any outfit.
Color-wise, it depends on the occasion. If tuxedos are off the menu, and it’s a smart casual affair, take inspiration from the colors of the season. This gives you a plethora of options to pick and choose from.
Mix Colors and Textures
Brown doesn’t have to mean boring, especially when you pick tweed. If money is an issue, one perfectly good tweed jacket goes with almost any formal attire.
Navy is another great option, especially if you mix it with brown suede, either in shoe or belt form. But if you go for the complete winter setup, velvet and corduroy are essential. They are low-key but are both very warm textures.
The Warmer Months
Heading into the warmer months of spring and summer, it can get a bit more complicated. Your location will make a big difference at this point, whether it’s indoor or outdoor. Planning the big day a few months in advance, there is no way to predict the weather.
Spring, temperature wise, is very similar to the fall. One option to cover all bases is to go for a touch of warming color. One example is a pink dress shirt with a gray suit. You can dress this up with a cotton necktie, and a pocket square to keep the gray from looking dull.
Bold and Chic
Summer is all about the light colored numbers. If you’re going for full-on summer chic, a floral tie can be a brave choice. Keep it casual or make sure it works with the suit. If you’ve got a beach wedding, a tan suit, even with a hat, can help you carry off the style with confidence. Blues and colors on the lighter ends of the spectrum are a good choice for a hot summer’s day too.
Groom Attire Impact
The time of the season makes a big mark on your planning. Winter weddings come with a rustic, warming sensation, whereas the summer months are all about coolness and vibrancy. When it comes to planning the ideal groom attire it’s not just about the right colors and accessories.
You need to tread that fine line between something stylish, but also practical. While we cannot predict the weather, we can plan for the season and any seasonal curveballs. Either way, ensure the groom attire makes a big impact.
