Wedding season is almost upon us, bringing with it joy, excitement and stress about what to wear. Even if you are not part of the wedding party you will want to ensure you look your best as part of the celebrations – after all, the photos will be looked at for years to come!
Here are five easy ways to add a touch of class to your outfit and be sure you stand out from the crowd.
Beautiful Bow Ties
If you’re getting dressed up in your finery, why not add a bow tie as a finishing touch? They are a statement piece without being overbearing and are no longer just for snooker players and conductors. Choose a vibrant colour to liven up a plain suit or opt for patterns to really make a splash.
Shoes That Sparkle
Your grandma always told you that first impressions count and you don’t want to be the talk of the wedding for all the wrong reasons. Make sure to polish your shoes until they sparkle if they’re leather or treat them with suede cleaner if necessary. If you have new shoes, be sure to break them in – you don’t want to be suffering from blisters on the dance floor.
Whether you choose a blingy watch or a pair of glasses with a chunky frame, accessories can be the finishing touch and tie a whole look together. You don’t need to spend big bucks either – attention to detail is what makes the difference. A pair of designer socks can be a fun choice and a way to showcase your personality when it can feel there’s little opportunity to deviate from the norm so go wild!
Country weddings continue to be a popular option for couples and are the perfect opportunity to embrace your inner gent. Tweed and cord can be stylised to look dapper and even flat caps can bring a twist to the traditional wedding guest outfit. If you’re feeling short on inspiration, visit the Burrows & Hare shop in Marlow to check out their range, which is perfect for any discerning gent at an English wedding.
Male grooming is a growing market and if you want to look your best, it pays to take care of yourself. Treatments such as facials and manicures can help you appear polished and bring a healthy glow – attention to detail can make all the difference. If you want to embrace the sun kissed look but don’t have a holiday abroad on the horizon, a visit to your local salon for sunbeds or spray tans could be the answer. And don’t forget your teeth – your dental hygienist can ensure you have a radiant smile in those wedding photos.
Being invited to a wedding is an honour, so making an effort to look your best will not only give you a confidence boost but also show your respect for the happy couple. Take pride in your appearance and enjoy the celebrations!
