Your husband's best buds can quickly turn into your worst wedding-day headache. Here, expert advice on how to avoid the most common groomsmen style snafus.

I'd like my groom to stand out in his tuxedo but also coordinate with the bridal party. How can he add something distinctive without drawing too much attention?

"Color, color, color," emphasizes Steinbrenner. "We offer more than 385 tie styles and 175 full-back vests to complement any bridesmaids' dress. If the groom wants to stay more neutral, consider adding a pocket square for some extra color."

"I love when the groom has a unique boutonniere, just slightly different than the one worn by the groomsmen," says Angel Swanson, principal event designer and planner at Love & Splendor. "I suggest that the groom wear a bloom plucked straight out of the bride's bouquet. It can be slightly larger than the groomsmen's boutonnieres, perhaps with a touch of greenery or an additional floral accent."
