Since I’ve been writing this blog I haven’t really posted anything about what Mr M and our Groomsmen will be wearing on the big day. Simply because we really didn’t know.
Before Mr M and I actually got engaged, I went into a suit shop with my younger brother to look for a prom suit for him. And when I was there, I spotted a lovely grey tail suit with a white shirt and grey striped tie that I could totally imagine Mr M wearing if we ever got married. I took a photo of it to use for future reference and after we did actually get engaged, I kind of had my sights set on it for our wedding.
Anyway, as our planning progressed and we decided to go all out and plan a rustic, woodland themed wedding that suited our personalities perfectly, Mr M revealed he really wanted to wear tweed on the big day. And I LOVED the idea. It was very him, very ‘us’ and perfect for our big day.
So for the last year or so we’ve been hunting high and low through high street shops trying to find affordable tweed suits! We’ve found Next to be the best place as in their Autumn/Winter collection they have a great range of colours and styles and for relatively affordable prices. They’re not cheap, but they are good quality and I know our Groomsmen will definitely wear them again.
So with their tweed suits, all the Groomsmen including Mr M will be wearing a wine and cream checked shirt and Converse sneakers. Mr M and his Best Man will team this with a wine coloured woolen tie and waistcoat, and our three Ushers will wear a wine coloured woolen bow tie and matching spotted braces.
Here’s a couple of our inspiration photos…
And the ties, bow-ties and the braces the Groomsmen will be wearing…
We’re not sure what colour the tweed will be yet, I’m happy for either grey or brown tweed; I guess it’ll depend on what suits the boys and the shirts and ties best!
I am super excited though! We ordered the bowties, regular ties and braces last night so they should be here soon!
