Let’s be honest, the main attraction is and will always be the bride on the wedding day but let’s put a little spotlight on that groom over there. After all, he does make up 50% of the reason this wedding is taking place!
We are completely obsessed right now with men’s fashion! Designers, trendsetters, fashion models and stylists have really set the bar high with what men are wearing these days and wedding days are no exception. That being said, we thought that it would be appropriate to let the men know that even if you think you’re looking fly, you need to pay attention to certain details of your wardrobe.
Some key points to make sure that are just right:
These are common points, right?
Well yes, but each one is SOO important in every single way.
Step 1: Go To a Tailor
Get your suit or tux fit perfectly. Not everyone’s shape is made the same but every off the rack suit is so you should not be able to get away with going to the store and throwing something on from the rack. Especially on a day like this. Trust us, the smallest alterations make a huge difference and smile on your wife’s face will be priceless!
Step 2: Know How Things Should Look Oversized pants, jackets, shirts, too long ties, too short ties, etc. etc. etc. ARE NOT OKAY. 🙂 Check the images here to see what is the right way to wearing these
So make sure you spend some time getting to know what your size is and familiarizing yourself with styles you like to make sure you look sharp. Getting an opinion or two doesn’t hurt either which actually brings us to our last step…
Step 3: Consult with Others Check-in with your bride, planner, or some lady in your life that you know has an eye for style! This way, you avoid making any embarrassing fashion no-no’s. You know that time you wanted to go out for dinner with that outfit you thought was amazing but your wife was like “ummmmm what are those?” Yeah, let’s not make that a thing that happens again when she’s walking down the aisle and sees you. Let’s make sure you’re looking like a total snack in her eyes 😉
So what’d you think? We’d love to know which of these steps you’ll be implementing (or all of them. Tell us in the comments below!

Second look for the groom? It may not be something many men think of, or even the ladies think of, but when looking back on it, it may make sense: Guys need a second look too. We all have those very fashionable, love to look good, care about their appearance, men in our lives. On the wedding day, it is likely no different.
Guys – just like the ladies have an interest in having several looks, and that is perfectly fine with us, we want you to have an interest in a second look too. Actually, now that were on this topic, we are kind of obsessed with the idea of two looks for the bride and groom. Before we scare you away, a second look can be either extreme, subtle and sophisticated or even statement-making, it all works – that is when it is done the right way.
Here are a few suggestions and tips on helping your man pull this off:
Change The Jacket!
This is probably the easiest thing to do as it is simply a switch from one thing to another. When do you do this? The same time the ladies would make their switch. Plan for a specific look during the ceremony, something sharp, classic and that completely compliment the look of your face. Don’t know what she is wearing? (obviously, cause why would you) Ask for her opinion on it. It is likely that she won’t let you decide this all on your own anyways.
Then make the switch right before your grand entrance into your ballroom IF you are going with something a little more fun and not too crazy. I say IF because if you are going with a look that is wild and totally speaks to your outgoing personality – I would hold off until the dancing begins. Bring out the cameras and your boys and make it known you are the guy for the night and now all eyes are on you.
Switch Up The Kicks
We all know guys love their shoes and to be honest, some (or most) probably even have more tennis shoes in their closet than they know what to do with them. If you have a man that collects and takes pride in his shoe game, then why not show them off? Buy the best pair yet and put them to some real use – on that dance floor. It is certainly acceptable for you to make this minor wardrobe change when the lights go down and the music gets loud. Show off the shoe on you cause we are all here for a guy with a good shoe game!
So tell us! Which of these tips do you think your man will end up trying out? Comment your best guess below.

Typically low cut and shear is usually our go-to vibe when it comes to bridal gowns. But these days, we’re IN LOVE with gowns that have a high neckline. We know, we know. At first glance, high neckline gowns seem a little far off from where we usually fall on the sexy spectrum when it comes to weddings. But just because the neck is high, doesn’t mean you can’t also be sexy! Keep reading and fall in love with high necklines too.
Let’s start with elegance. A high neckline gown paired with an updo accentuates the neck and collar bones. We love sexy, always will. High neckline lets you drop it low, while at the same time cover-up. Just look at how Berta executed this look.
Take a look at some of these looks. Once you’re done scrolling, we know you’ll agree.
Spring Wedding + Inspo
If we had to choose a season and vibe, for a high neckline gown, it would be spring wedding with a Lake Como vibe, pair with gold, satin cowl midi slip dress for the bridesmaids.
High Neckline Designers We Love
Some of the designers dong high necklines the right way are our usual favorite suspects–Berta, Mira Zwillinger, and Vera Wang.
First up, Berta! We mentioned earlier that when you first think of high necklines, you think conservative. But not with Berta! Take a look at some of these sexy, high necklines.

Trending now is clear heels. Not only do we love the look of them, but we also love the way they fit and feel. Designers seemed to have perfected the non-foggy look. Ladies, you know what we’re talking about, where the shoes fog up the clear portion of the heels. LOL Ok, back to clear heels and why we love them.
They are so simple and chic and elongate every woman’s legs. Who is here for the Barbi leg look? WE ARE! As an everyday look or style to going out for dinner and drinks, to bridesmaids and bridal shoes – they are the perfect fit for any lady’s foot. Not to mention, they do give us a little Cinderella glass slipper vibe.
We know, it is likely that KIM K started this trend a few years ago but we are here to tell you, if you haven’t already, buy a pair. Take a look for yourself and see why.
