All about the Groom... finishing details!

I've been feeling lately I've maybe not given enough posts to the Grooms... us ladies tend to get swept up in the whole wedding excitement and forget about the man in our life, they too want to feel part of the big day and if they don't enjoy planning the main points giving them small parts can bring you both together!

So today I am covering of the man accessories...

Tie, cravat or Dickie bow
Cuff links

There are lots to be considered here as each of the above items breaks into more detailed...

Ties... what kind of knot, skinny/fat, vintage/modern, coloured or not?
Cravat - hmm, well this is a yes or a no.
Dickie Bow - I love these, in all there forms, smart (James Bond/ red carpet style) or vintage/ East London esq
Handkerchief... should usually match the colour of other accessories, but not necessary, don't over kill.  As Coco Channel once said remove the last item you put on!
Cummerbund... classic or retro, great for adding colour if you are in a simple suit
Waistcoat - again classic or retro... depending on how you style it, a simple colour to match the theme of the day, or a wacky out there one for more of a relaxed casual day

Hats... top hat, bowler, gangster... this is not an accessory I would push for a groom or grooms men.  Depends on the theme of your big day?  This is the same for canes.

Socks - us gals like to add a dash of colour to our beautiful wedding dress with a coloured shoe, you can add some colour and define the grooms men with a patterned sock... always good for photos and bring a smile to faces.

Cuff links - not always a must have, depends on the shirt type, can be simple, a wedding gift from your soon to be wife, a romantic gesture to your future wife with your names and date?
