Styling a wedding can be tough. It’s not just about dresses and suits, there are so many different elements that have to be brought together and presented in a harmonious way. It can be too challenging for most – invitations, flowers, table decorations, bonbonniere, entertainment, food, rehearsals, and many more.
It’s not surprising that the overall look of your bridal party can get a bit lost along the way. That’s why it’s important to have a big picture vision in mind from the start so that you can make the right decisions on all the little details. To ensure that your bridesmaids and groomsmen look sharp and stylish on your big day, take note of these tips:
One of the easiest ways to ensure your bridal party (and in fact your entire wedding) looks sophisticated is to go for classic rather than seasonal colours. Examples of ‘classic colours’ include white, cream, china blue, navy and black. Choose two colours when planning begins and be disciplined about only using these two hues for all aspects of your wedding.
Be Discerning About the Suit
If your budget permits, don’t scrimp when hiring or buying suits for your groomsmen. A suit that is carefully tailored and cut well will guarantee that your groom and groomsmen look their best and make a striking statement. To complete the look choose a crisp, tailored shirt.
Silver Cufflinks for Sophistication
Cufflinks for the Groom and Groomsmen should be chosen with care. The right set of cufflinks will be the icing on the cake, ensuring their styling is sharp and sophisticated. Silver cufflinks with an enamel or highly polished finish are perfect. Choose a style that makes a statement. Avoid colour as a simple silver accessory on the cuff will make a big impact. You simply can’t go wrong with any of the following styles:
A Tailored Look for the Bridesmaids
When choosing your bridesmaids dresses again opt for a fitted, tailored style. This will create a refined, sophisticated and timeless look. A short dress with a knee length hem will work for women of just about any body shape. Go for a shift, strapless or v-neck design, whichever you like best. You may actually like to choose same color yet different style dresses for each of your bridesmaids to keep it interesting.
These simple styling secrets will have your bridal party looking sophisticated and in classic style for the most important day of your life.
