The bride’s fashion choices are always important, but a sharply dressed groom is something that makes a wedding even more special. But sometimes, grooms don’t know how to dress for the occasion. Whether it’s an informal occasion or a black tie event, check out these tips to help keep the groom looking picture perfect on the big day.
1. Pick a Suit That Suits Him
The key to pulling off a tuxedo is to choose one that fits his body type. If your man is tall and slender, lucky he can wear anything his heart desires and look fantastic.
If he's tall with a thick build, avoid tuxedos that are too tight. The shawl collar tux is the best bet because it has trouser pants and a single-breasted jacket that will make it look streamlined.
If he's short and skinny, make sure you tailor his tuxedo to his body. A structured jacket will add broadness and make him look fantastic. If he's short and broad, look for shawl collar tuxedos because they lengthen and streamline.
2. Tailor, Tailor and Tailor Your Clothes
An ill-fitting suit, even if it’s designer, always looks horrible. The key to looking spiffy on the wedding day is to tailor his pants and jackets, so they fit him like a glove. If his suit is too tight, look for a larger size; you don’t him want to look like a squeezed turkey, right? If the suit is too large, have it tailored by a professional, so he looks picture-perfect on your big day.
3. Casual yet Elegant
If your wedding is on the casual side, make sure your groom looks polished by wearing a pair of casual trousers and a dinner jacket. If it’s a beach wedding, khaki pants and a crisp button down shirt look suave yet appropriate for the hot weather. Casual doesn’t mean sloppy, so don’t wear a battered pair of jeans and regular t-shirt to your wedding.
4. The Right Brand Makes a Big Difference
A lot of people say Reem is so cool for a reason. This brand uses quality materials for the perfect look. The right clothes make a big difference because they look better. They make the wearer look slim and fit, and they last a lot longer. Make sure you have the right brand that will make your groom look his best on your big day.
5. Accessories Matter
Make sure you always wear a crisp pair of dress shoes when wearing a suit or tux. Your shoes should also be polished the night before the event so they look perfect.
Your wedding is the most important day of your life. Follow these tips to keep your man looking great on your big day.
Finding clothes that suit your body shape can be stressful enough for some ladies, so finding the right wedding dress can be understandably difficult for others! Wedding dresses come in all shapes and size, but choosing the ideal one to suit your height, frame, body shape and personality can sometimes be an absolutely nightmare, especially if you have no idea where to begin.
They say that the wedding dress can be the most important choice for any bride-to-be, which is why it is imperative that you get it right first time. If you have been struggling with your choice of dress, worry no longer as you can find the help you have been looking for right here.
If you could use some assistance, take a look at these tips to see if they could answer any questions you may have:
Wedding dresses for petite ladies
If you have a petite frame, you might feel as through wedding dresses you have already tried on simply swamped you. Try going for trumpet or mermaid shaped gowns that gently flare out towards the ground. This will give you a nice, continuous line that is completely unbroken, and then will therefore make you look taller. This can also work with toga-style wedding gowns.
Also, choose wedding dresses with dainty patterns that will match your stature.
Wedding dresses for larger ladies
There are some absolutely stunning wedding gowns out there that look incredible on larger women. Try gowns with fitted bodices and high waists, along with skirts that skim the hips and falls elegantly to the floor. Ruched waist detailing and panels can also help to nip in the waist and create a gorgeous silhouette.
Wedding dresses for pear shaped ladies
Pear shaped women may think their frame is the hardest to dress, but it really couldn't be any easier. It's all about optical illusions, so go for dresses with diagonal hems and draping effects that will balance out your lower half with your upper half. Dresses with shrugs and shoulder detail can also help with this.
Wedding dresses for hourglass ladies
If you're lucky enough to have an hourglass shape, you'll definitely want to show it off! You can find beautiful wedding gowns that will hug your curves and make you look beautiful on your big day. Choose styles that skim the hips and nip in the waist with drop waist designs, or ones with asymmetrical folds and drapes that keep the eyes moving.
Wedding dresses for busty ladies
If you have a particularly ample bust and you're worried about how you'll look in your wedding gown, don't fret. You can look stunning in wedding gowns specially designed for women with your body shape. Look out for dresses with modest necklines and structured bodices that will keep you feeling more than secure.
Finding the right kind of wedding dress for you can seem like an impossibly task when you first approach it, but you really needn’t worry. With a little bit of research and enough time to try on a few styles, you’re sure to find the ideal one for you.

Planning a wedding is hectic and stressful under the best of circumstances. While there are a few grooms who wish to be involved with every detail, most are just not that interested in the specifics. However, there are a few important things the groom cannot forget to do before the wedding. The following tips can help the groom stay on top of the action.
Do not forget the groomsman's gifts
These small gifts serve as a thank you to the groomsman for their help during the wedding. Although engraved flasks and similar items are the traditional option, the gift should reflect the relationship between the groom and his groomsman. These gifts should be chosen at least a month before the wedding, and should not be left to the last minute.
Do not forget the tuxedo
At one time, the groom's outfit was a simple affair. He quickly picked out a tuxedo, wore it to the wedding and that was the end of it. Today there are a wide range of tuxedo styles and accessories. The groom's tuxedo should reflect his personal style, yet still fit in with the look of the wedding. After all, the wedding photographs will last a lifetime.
Do not forget to pick great music
An experienced DJ or band will have a list of standard wedding songs ready to play. However, some couples prefer to put their own stamp on the music that will be played at their reception. If the groom has not picked out songs he likes, be sure to remind him to do so before it is too late.
Do not forget the honeymoon
Although the groom traditionally plans the honeymoon, many modern couples prefer to plan the honeymoon together. Working as a team to choose the perfect honeymoon spot is a good reminder that the wedding is only the first step in a bride and groom's new life. Double and triple checking reservations will ensure the first step is a smooth one.
Do not forget his sense of humor
Successfully planning a wedding is often the first serious challenge a couple faces together. Taking a wedding planning break to be silly and spontaneous helps a couple stay focused on each other. An unexpected gift, such as novelty underwear, is fun, and many people love this style of mens boxer shorts.
Do not forget to surprise the bride
On their wedding day, brides are nervous and worried about every detail. A small, thoughtful gift or lovely bouquet of flowers from the groom will make her day even more special.
