Grooms & Groomsmen With Style

Its  modern times and gone are the days when grooms wore traditional tuxedos and had no say in the planning process of their weddings. Today’s grooms are fashion conscious and want to show their personalities in their outfits. I believe they also want to look and feel a billion pounds on their day . I know that there are still grooms out there who couldn’t care less and just want to turn up and get wed but there are those who are genuinely interested. It is to those brothers I dedicate this post.

A couple of weeks back I had a very interesting conversation with a friend and they raised their concerns on how the wedding industry tends to forget about grooms and groomsmen. Please don’t get me wrong I’m not trying to demean anyone or talk bad about my colleagues in the wedding industry but this is how some of the grooms and groomsmen feel that most of the time it’s all about the bride. Magazines and blogs (my own included) tend to focus on the brides more than grooms. That is why I think we need to do more for grooms and have more DIY wedding projects , pampering programs, scent selection workshops and much more for all grooms and their groomsmen out there.

There is a program called “don’t tell the bride”, for those of you who do not know what the program is about; the groom is given £12000 and gets to plan the entire day without any knowledge or input from the bride. I take my hat off to those grooms even though they have no clue about the wedding industry some of them put in a lot of effort trying to find ways to make their day unique. But for some of them the weddings turn out to be a disaster even though their brides put on a brave face. This is why I think we should do more to inform and educate grooms and groomsmen about the wedding world and make the planning process more fun and interesting for them.

So I’ve decided to write at least five posts per month dedicated to grooms (it’s a small number I know but I have to take little steps, humble beginnings. As time goes by and the blog gets more exposure I will increase the number of posts per month.

For the first post in the grooms category I have delightful suits that would look ridiculously smart on any groom for their big day. There is an incredible designer called Marc Wallace based in London, UK. His designs are fresh and vibrant. I‘m sure any groom and his groomsmen would feel a million pounds wearing these gorgeous suits.

A bit about  Marc Wallace: “Marc Wallace launched his first collection in 2000 and has since become renowned worldwide for his handmade suits and luxury accessories; Marc’s passion to challenge the direction of menswear is evident in the label’s fresh and original style. Through Marc’s hands on approach, collaborating with skilled artisans on limited edition pieces, the label continues to drive forward with inspiration and design at it’s heart”.

Here are ten stylish and not so traditional suits from the incredible Marc Wallace. for more information and the entire collection please check out Marc Wallace’s website.

I would love to hear your thoughts, do you think we have neglected grooms or am I just going on about nothing, If you are a groom, do you feel there is more focus on the brides , please leave your comments on the box below or comment via facebook or twitter
