Even though weddings often have a lot of focus on the bride, that doesn’t mean that the groom can’t get dressed up and feel good next to her. Luckily, men’s fashion has come a long way, over the last decade, which means that men can now put just as much effort into their looks as their counterparts. For weddings, this is no exception.

Now, more than ever, grooms are able to get dressed to the nines in some of the nicest suits and modern embellishments that will have heads turning. For men who really want to impress on their big day, there are lots of stylish embellishments their groomsmen and they can wear that will make them look handsome, dapper and well-put-together just in time for the “I Do”s.

If you need some help dressing up the groomsmen in your wedding, consider these embellishments for show-stopping style:

Fashionable Footwear

Even if a look is almost totally put together, it will never look as good as it could without some amazing shoes. Luckily for men, there are thousands of different shoe styles available that will finish the look and complement any groomsmen’s style. There are all kinds of shoe styles that grooms can choose for their wedding party, from Oxfords and loafers to derbies and dress boots.

Some grooms will give their groomsmen their wedding shoes as a gift since shoes are often a larger investment, and they’ll last a long time. Grooms should be aware of the wedding theme, as well as the venue, in order to pick a style of shoe that works with the colors and surrounding themes. For example, a classy black-tie wedding might require an Oxford shoe, while a rustic wedding theme might call for something closer to a dress boot.

Bow Ties

Like all things in fashion, some popular items start to phase out and will eventually come back around in time. The bow tie is one of these items, which seemed to be replaced by the traditional tie, for a little while, before making a huge comeback.

Bowties are a very popular accessory for men in weddings, and they’re a very flexible embellishment that can be worn for any wedding theme, from vintage country to black tie chic. This kind of style really is perfect for any man at any age and will even look dapper for the father of the bride and any young ring bearer walking down the aisle. This kind of embellishment makes men look very handsome, and they’re easily found in all kinds of colors and styles to match the bride or wedding theme.

These make an awesome gift for the groomsmen and go well with any wedding theme because there are so many cuff link designs available.
