Wedding Look Goals for Men

Getting married is such a special day for the bride, but it deserves to be just as special for the groom. At the end of the day, every bride and groom wants to look and feel their best for their partners and families. But what are some tips on how a groom can look his best for his wedding? In today’s blog, the expert image consultants are presenting simple ways men can prepare themselves to achieve their wedding look goals.

Accessories Maketh The Man

In a formal setting, it would be difficult to spot a well-dressed gentleman not sporting a tie, pocket square, lapel pin, cufflinks, and perhaps a dress watch to match his dashing suit or tuxedo. A casual wedding could be an opportunity to sport flashier or more personal accessories like bracelets, rings, and belt buckles with custom jeans and a sports coat. Remember, when you buy shoes always ask yourself, “do I have a belt that is roughly this color and shade?” Our goal is to look like our outfit is one unbroken piece, not articles of clothes thrown together haphazardly.

Break in Those Shoes

Grooms will have much more fun on the dance floor if they take the time to break in their shoes. Men purchasing new shoes are recommended to have them 1-2 months in advance to begin the process of breaking them in. Explore more about choosing the best shoes for your suit here. Try taking a few short walks in the new kicks to get over the hump of stiffness. If there is time, taking one last stroll the day before the wedding can be very beneficial. Some men opt for shoes that they already own, be sure they’re up to the beauty standards—in short, be sure they’re clean. We here at the shop subscribe to the notion that you can tell a lot about a man by the state of his shoes. There are many products and techniques available that can have your old shoes looking like new.

Take Care Of Yourself

But planning and preparing for a wedding is a stressful endeavor and many couples we work with report losing track of sleeping and eating habits. The best thing you can do to look happy, healthy, and well-rested on your wedding day is to be happy, healthy, and well-rested. Prioritize sleep, hydration, and nutrition during the months proceeding your wedding day. Taking care of our most important assets like our teeth, nails, and hair is essential. Avoid the 5 O’clock shadow by making sure you have a clean shave on the day of your wedding. A new razor will help with preventing accidental cuts. Have your hair cut relatively close to the big day and make sure to style it the day of. If you struggle with having less hair due to genetics, there are also alternative solutions with products like finasteride to help with hair growth.



There is so much to keep on track of as the big day approaches it is hard not to get lost. Make your wedding outfit something to look forward to.
