Wedding can be a fantastic event but there are many decisions to be made in the build up to the event with the planning and organisation to make sure everything runs smoothly. Some of these decisions are major decisions and some are not so major but when all added up together in the bigger picture they all need the same amount of focus. God is in the details, as they say.
For any wedding the dress of the bride is the one thing that nearly every one will remember and for this reason the bride may have to make some really hard decisions regarding what to wear. But what about the groom, what options are open to him? Of course the groom will want to look as dapper as possible; if for no other reason than he at least needs to match the effort and time put in by the bride to ensure his appearance does not detract from hers.
Doing away with the traditional wedding attire of some countries for a moment or two the groom has very little option as far as his dress goes. This being said even with the minimum amount of choice available to a groom it is still so easy to get it wrong on the day and look totally out of place. Even though the groom is not supposed to see the wedding dress before the day of the wedding I would always advise getting help from the bride when choosing the groom’s clothing for the day as she will know what will go with her dress and will be able to point the groom in the right direction without giving anything away as to her dress for the day.
The top and tail option is the traditional wedding attire for the groom, the only option that used to be available in this used to be that of the color, black, gray or dark blue. Things have moved on a lot in recent years with the acceptance of many more colors for the wedding suit The traditional wedding suit is now available in much lighter tones such as white or cream which have become popular due to the amount of people flying away to have a beach wedding on a tropical beach somewhere. For this reason the wedding suit is also available in a much lighter material than of old to save you from passing out with heat exhaustion in the middle of the service.
Depending on what country you reside in or where your family heritage is from you may want to get wed wearing the traditional wedding attire of your country. This may vary from country to country but one of the most popular wedding outfits for the groom is a traditional Scottish kilt. These are available to either buy or rent from most wedding outfitters and are available in many different styles of tartan. Each Scottish clan has a different tartan, if you are of Scottish decent it may pay you to do a little research into your clan tartan to try to find if you can acquire a kilt for your wedding in that tartan.
If all of the males on the grooms side of the wedding party are dressed in matching Scottish kilts as well as traditional Scottish attire this really can look fantastic on the wedding photos. You can spend as much or as little as you like when it comes to your wedding, affordable wedding dresses are available for both bride and groom if you shop around.
The key to looking the part for the groom is to take advice from the bride and to wear an outfit that suits you and your heritage. If you choose to go for the traditional wedding suit then go for a colour that will suit the occasion and if you choose to go for your own nationality’s traditional wedding attire then make sure you do it properly and do not cut corners. Remember that hopefully your wedding day will be the only one that you ever have and you want the memories of the occasion to last as long as the wedding itself.
