The Groom’s Perfect Look

Sun.Star Baguio - - LIVE! - And suits by Har­vic Dominguez. Tuxe­dos

LIKE the bride, the groom too must look his best. That is from head to foot. But not too over­pow­er­ing to out­shine the bride. The se­cret would be a co­or­di­nated look for the cou­ple that will co­here with the whole wed­ding’s theme. Lit­tle ac­cents will clinch unique­ness and per­sonal style.

The tuxedo or suit must be well tai­lored for a perfect fit and com­fort al­low­ing the groom to move. (Tuxedo’s have satin de­tails on the lapel, but­tons, side stripe on the pants and are for evening and more for­mal events; suits make use of the same ma­te­rial through­out, for­mal to ca­sual and may be used at any time of the day.) Most im­por­tantly it must com­pli­ment one’s physique. Types. “The Mod­ern Fit are the most pop­u­lar, fash­ion for­ward and con­tem­po­rary ones. Fea­tures of a slightly ta­pered sil­hou­ette, slim­mer thighs and soft shoul­ders. It is used for a wide va­ri­ety of body types; Slim Fit is a skinny fit and are edgy. Fits are very close to the body with a mod­ern edge and sleek aes­thetic. They are shorter in length; Tra­di­tional Fit has a clas­sic style fea­tur­ing a softer sil­hou­ette and gen­er­ous cut with roomier shoul­ders, ch­est and sleeves. Pants are less fit­ted to the body and are for larger sized men.” -Wed­dingsInCleve­land.com Col­ors. Usu­ally are the clas­sic black, navy and white. Grey, sil­ver and earth col­ors de­pend­ing on the venue and time of day. De­vi­at­ing from the norm to suit your per­sonal style will make a stand out. Polo shirts. Usu­ally plain. Some­times with pleats and folds. Ac­ces­sories. A bow or a neck­tie. Most grooms go for a snugly fit­ting bow. One may be cre­ative by de­vi­at­ing from a plain to a printed pat­tern in a mixed or match­ing color. The pocket-square. Adding de­tails to co­or­di­nate with the wed­ding’s theme with flow­ers (bou­ton­nière) or a hanky. Cuff. Usu­ally kept sim­ple in sil­ver, gold or a per­sonal choice for style. Shoes. Pop­u­lar are the shades of brown. But the shoe color re­ally goes with the type of suit. Black es­pe­cially for tuxe­dos. White or some in stand out col­ors of sil­ver, dark green and dark purple. Don’t for­get to match a belt! Hair­style. A new look will be nice. There­fore plan­ning months ahead is very im­por­tant. Try­ing a new hair­style and giv­ing time for your hair to grow back just in case you change your mind.

Above all th­ese, the groom should take a re­spon­si­ble, ac­tive and par­tic­i­pa­tory role in wed­ding plan­ning. Al­ways sup­port­ing the bride. It will al­ways be great to do things to­gether. And be on time es­pe­cially on the day it­self. Don’t keep your bride wait­ing! Cheers!
