Best Man Style Tips

For any bride and groom their wedding day is special. On that day, they get confirm, and celebrate, their love for each other with the help of their friends and family.

It is also special for the other members of the wedding party, including the best man. Being asked to take care of the groom on such an important day is an honour which most men do not forget in a hurry.

Naturally, for such a special, and important, occasion the best man wants to get everything just right, including the way he is dressed. The last thing he wants to do is to spoil the wedding photos because he has chosen to wear the wrong attire.

Complement the groom’s style
For some weddings choosing the best man´s clothes is not hard. If the groom has chosen to get married in a morning suit, the chances are he will want the other male members of the wedding party to wear one too.

However, these days, this form of wedding attire is rarely worn. Most grooms prefer to get married in a tailored suit, or to dress in a style that reflects the overall theme of the wedding. For example, for a 20s style, Great Gatsby, wedding he may choose to wear a tuxedo, which was popular during that era. In all likelihood the groom will want the best man to wear something similar.

The best man’s outfit needs to complement what the groom is wearing, but it is not a good idea for them to look exactly the same. A good approach is to choose the same style of suit, but opt for slightly different colors.

Little details matter
It is very important to pay attention to the details. The best man needs to take the time to do things like buy a new belt, get their suit professionally adjusted and wear cufflinks if everyone else is wearing them.

He needs to get his hair properly styled and consider visiting a professional barber for a hot towel shave. The best man should also have a manicure, and perhaps a facial so he looks as well groomed as possible.

The right footwear
The fact that the best man is going to be on his feet for much of the day means that he needs to choose his footwear wisely. His shoes need to be comfortable as well as look good. Ideally, he should break them in by wearing them around the house for a few days before the wedding.

Have a dry run
Usually there are one or two fitting sessions for the wedding party, which the best man should attend. He needs to try on his entire outfit, including all of the accessories. Once on, he should view his outfit from all angles to make sure that the fit is perfect. It is also important for him to crouch down and fold his arms across his chest to double check that he has enough freedom of movement.
