The wedding dress is not the only important outfit at a wedding, the groom’s clothing should be just as special.
But as Louise from English Gentleman found out when planning her wedding, boys don’t always get the same treatment as the girls.
“Traditionally grooms and their groomsmen have worn morning suits on their wedding day and it’s still a tradition that many follow today. But what if you fancy a little something different?
“My groom tried on a hired morning suit and it just wasn’t for him. He didn’t do the little skip and a hop I did when I finally found “the dress”. That made me feel a little sad for him, everyone should feel special on their big day. It made me appreciate that things have moved on and if you want to express style and fashion as a groom today, you can. The right suit was easy to find but we really struggled to find the right accessories and settled for an average tie. Five years later I decided it was my calling in life to make sure grooms look dapper and the English Gentleman was born.
“Bow ties were first worn back as early as the 17th century. In recent years, they have made a major comeback along more traditional men’s accessories such as braces, cravats and pockets. Here at English Gentleman we aim to provide our customers all of these accessories to showcase their individual style.”
