Wedding project ideas and style how-tos for brides, bridal jewelry designers and wedding planners.


Design Idea 921L

by Jake Woolley, Exclusively for Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®

There's no question the limelight of a wedding shines brightest on the bride, but what about the groom? Shouldn't his attire include subtle details highlighting his debonair look, while still fitting the classic wedding theme? Here are a few well-groomed details worth looking into when planning the big day.

A Tailored Classic:

Design Idea C32S
Fashion designers have created great options for men seeking a classic era appeal. Consider a navy blue double-breasted suit, an ageless style fit for a royal wedding. A very popular suit during the 1930s to the 1950s, this style reemerges as modern men want a fresh take on the tailored look. A more form-fitting slimmer cut is ideal to showcase a contemporary feel that won't look too old-fashioned or stodgy.

The fashionable dark blue color works well for fall and winter weddings, while taking a side-step from the traditional black tux option. Given the classic venue of a vintage barn location, dark navy blue adds a clean, sleek look that blends well with the wedding theme's backdrop.

Keepsake Cufflinks:

Besides his wedding ring, cuff links are one of the few jewelry keepsakes a man will be able to use for future special occasions. Cuff links can be custom-made to fit the groom's personality or add an elegant detail that coincides with the wedding theme. Giving all the groomsmen matching cuff links is not only a great way to say "thank you," but also ties the theme and wedding details to their wardrobe.

With a cuff link base, you can easily adhere almost any type of statement piece you'd like. It's your opportunity to create a meaningful accessory for the groom and add another subtle touch to the classic theme.

Bling His Boutonniere:

Design Idea A46M
If the bride is enthusiastically showing off her bouquet, make sure the groom is proudly sporting a boutonniere. Give his flowered centerpiece added color and texture with the signature sparkle of Swarovski crystals. Often the groomsmen's attire will also include boutonnieres, but traditionally the groom's lapel floral will have slightly different style with added pizzazz. Whether the boutonniere is a fresh flower or made of silk, there are several crystal bead or rhinestone options for added embellishment.

With countless hours spent on creating a beautiful vintage setting, and phone calls made to locate the perfect chauffeured automobile, the attention to detail will make this classic wedding theme look amazing and give the groom his fair share of the limelight.
