Coordinating cuts, styles, and sizes between multiple men so that each look complements your wedding style and theme is not as easy as it might sound. Luckily we, with the help of sponsor Men's Wearhouse, have five tips that will make finding the perfect look for your favorite men easy and even fun.
1. Give the groom and his groomsmen choices.
Look to rental companies for an array of options from which even the pickiest parties can find something to fit their style. Men's Wearhouse offers several sleek and slim styles from major names — think Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, and Joseph Abboud — in a variety of colors that can be customized in nearly uncountable ways, from coordinating vests to ties, socks, and pocket squares.
2. Match their look to your wedding mood.
An outdoor wedding calls for a soft gray suit, while a classic black-and-white tuxedo fits perfectly into a ballroom fête. So don't send your men in blindly. Give your main man access to your Pinterest planning board so he can coordinate with in-store stylists, on staff at stores such as Men's Wearhouse, to find the look that will match your theme and venue.
3. Tall or small? Tailor to your guys' various sizes.
One tux does not fit all — at least not like a glove. So take advantage of rental companies who have formalwear consultants on-hand to take measurements and select the suit that best matches each man's body type. You can also consider companies that offer alterations to their rentals so each man looks dapper — not drowned — in his attire.
4. Consider your guy's personal style.
When you walk the aisle, you'll be doing it with panache and personal flair — and your main man and his best friends deserve the same stylish strut. Does your guy go by "Chuck" because he so often wears his favorite Converse sneakers? Perhaps he can don his favorite pair with a stylish rented suit that hints at casual but keeps things classy.
5. Don't leave their looks to chance.
Guys have a lot of great qualities. But sometimes, a sense of style is not one of them. If your groom and groomsmen lack fashion sense, send them somewhere with pre-styled ensembles guaranteed to wow in the right ways. Men's Wearhouse has head-to-toe complete looks for every taste and wedding theme, so the only thing fashion blind men have to choose is their sizes.
