Listen up, you're not the only one who wants to look their best on the wedding day. Yes, the bride's wedding dress is the star of the show, but guess who else is center stage? The groom! That's right, the groom's attire is equally as important as your own. We know we spend so much time talking about wedding dresses and wedding accessories, but don't worry, groom, we haven't forgotten you. But how to make him feel as fashionable as you? Start with the groom's accessories. The right pocket square, sunglasses, bow tie, and shoes, can make or break his wedding day look. (And it makes for a pretty timeless groom gift as well). There's something for every personality—from the most laid-back dude to the most traditional prepster. Scroll through for 11 amazing groom accessory ideas to steal (and buy!) now.

Classic Frames

If your groom is a glasses-wearing kind of guy, he shouldn't have to go without them on the wedding day. He may, however, want to trade up. We love this black-rimmed pair from Brooklyn Spectacles. Want to make sure you're choosing the right rims for your face shape? Opposites attract. If you have a round face, go for square rims, and vice versa.

A Printed Pocket Square

Gitman Bro.'s paisley neat pocket square will make a subtle wedding-day statement. It would look amazing with a classic black suit—after all, that whole not mixing black and navy rule is so passé. If you're throwing a more casual wedding, however, your groom can go for a little color blocking and pair this pocket square with a colorful green or light blue suit.

Having a vintage-inspired wedding? Ted Baker London's jacquard silk tie will give your groom a bit of retro flair. We love the blue pattern featured here, but it also comes in a just-as-adorable deep red. Suffice it to say, both will look awesome for a summer wedding.
