SIM­PLY THE BEST

The Herald Business - - Bridesmaid/best Man -

THIS sea­son’s stylish best man can choose from suits with long (not bow) ties, and waist­coats in­stead of cum­mer­bunds. In­creas­ingly, grooms are or­der­ing cra­vat ties, non-pleated shirts, and three-but­ton jack­ets, which gives a more mod­ern look.

For a ca­sual wed­ding, it’s cool to ditch the suits and have the groom, best man and ush­ers in blaz­ers, match­ing some­thing in their out­fits, such as a pocket hand­ker­chief or a tie, with the over­all colour scheme.

And give the best man and ush­ers a gift that will add to their wed­ding day style but also be used again. Cuff­links can be per­son­alised with ini­tials, or for the banker, with pound signs, or the sports fan, a foot­ball or rugby ball.

It’s good to have the wed­ding party co-or­di­nated, but quite ac­cept­able for the best man’s but­ton­hole to be dif­fer­ent. An in­di­vid­ual touch is to have each sin­gle usher’s but­ton­hole dif­fer­ent, but matched with the bou­quet of the brides­maid he es­corts. De­cide each pair­ing by us­ing dif­fer­ent colours of the same flower, or dif­fer­ent flow­ers in the same colour.
