Welcome to the BT Blog
Where we Hope to Inform and Inspire
Guys, we know that you think there's very little room for you to show who you are at your wedding beyond colorful socks (which are fun by the way), because there is a theme or a palette or a plan in place, and the bride is almost always breathtaking. But you do have options and your new wife will appreciate that you've thought through what YOU will wear before and on the big day.
For 2023, here are some trends to consider.
Some grooms are going to skip the heavy suit or tux, the monochromatic traditional wear for something well-put-together, lighter and more simple. Many of our grooms in Wilkes County want to wear jeans or boots, or a blue suit instead of a tux. Do it. You can still pair these with a great jacket and tie.
More Hipster, Yep on your Wedding Day
Don't walk away from the suspenders, pocket squares, cuffed pants, and even rolled sleeved looks that grooms have been enjoying since the twenty-tens. These looks are still cool and totally stylish. They are also less formal.
TAn, Camel and natural tones
Tan isn't just for linen suits and summer. There are winter weights, gorgeous fabrics and smart cuts for athletic physiques, and again these work for more casual wedding days. Don't over look colors, guys.
And speaking of colors for Wedding Suits
Blue - and of course navy, taupe or grey - are all perfect options for grooms and groomsmen in 2023. If the black suit or tux is a non-starter for you, think color and think patterns too. Accessories are a way to shake a suit to life.
Don't forget accessories & Ties
Vests in patterns or complementary colors or textures, bow ties, patterned ties and the aforementioned socks, dress up a man's entire ensemble. Don't be bashful about cuff links, pocket watches, suspenders, and other elements that will show that you thought about your look for the day too.
Oversized, fitted and athletic cuts
Bridal Traditions carries more than just tuxes to rent. We sell suits in styles and cuts that are more flattering to all body shapes and styles. Shorter trousers, tapered legs, jackets that fit the body, are all available if you come prepared and know what you want. Come see us and we can see which styles, colors and cut work well for you.
It's YOUR wedding day, too! We know that the bride may have been considered the star in centuries past (and who are we kidding, she still is for the most part), but you should look amazing too. 2023 is going to be a great year for grooms as well. Do your research, think about your day and plan, and come to Bridal Traditions. We've got you guys!
