This year, grooms got serious about making a personal style statement. From whimsical boutonnieres and sharp skinny ties to edgy cuff links, here are the guys (and their stuff) that made a big impression.

Playful, fun, and inexpensive, these paper pinwheel boutonnieres make an appearance in Affordable Wedding Ideas Under $50. We're predicting a surge in their popularity because they can be worn on a number of occasions after the wedding—a very "Nucky Thompson" look (the lead character in Boardwalk Empire always wears an oversized red carnation in his jacket lapel, no matter what's on the day's agenda).
