When it comes to wedding day fashion, it’s usually all about the wedding dress and what the bridesmaids are wearing. But what about the groom and his dapper groomsmen? There are so many ways that a groom and his crew can add personality and flair to their wedding day get-up. After all it’s your wedding as well and you need to make the most of your special day!

Our grooms love nothing more than getting ready for their big day in the beautiful Library, complete with chesterfield lounges and a roaring fireplace. It’s the perfect place to sip on a whiskey while you calm your pre-wedding nerves. We love it when we see the groom and his groomsmen make the most of this hour. What really tickles our fancy is seeing the unique looks each groom has chosen. Lately we’ve seen some very fashion-forward grooms come through the homestead doors and we couldn’t be happier! Here are some fun new trends we are noticing.

Let’s start at the bottom – Hello colourful socks!
From stylish to silly there are so many colourful socks to choose from, all of which can reflect your personality or even small things about you, that only the bride would know. Keep things cool and sophisticated with a three-piece suit and add a cheeky pop of colour when it comes to your feet.

Go matchy-matchy with your groomsmen or mix things up with a different pair for each. And did we mention a statement pair of socks make a killer photo op?
The best thing about socks is there are so many choices out there for the groovy groom. From crazy bold colours and prints, to personalised wedding socks. We recommend checking out Happy Socks and Etsy as a great place to source personalised wedding socks.

Add meaningful touches with your accessories.
If there is an occasion to splash out on some new accessories, boys your wedding day is it. Consider a new watch or a new pair of cufflinks. We’ve even seen grooms engrave the date of their wedding on these items to create a daily reminder of their special day. There are some amazing cufflinks available that can be used to reflect your personality and interests!

Be bold with braces and bow ties.
Oh hey there Mr Personality! We love a pair of braces to finish an outfit and add a burst of style. Or look dapper with a bright bow tie and matching pocket square. Feeling creative? Match (or clash) with the bridal party if you dare! It’s these little touches that transform your wedding day get-up and allow you to inject your own personality and swagger to your outfit.
