Wedding Grooms Wear

Wedding Grooms Wear

Groom wear is the dress which is worn by the men on his wedding Ceremony.

The groom should choose his formal wear based on the formality of the wedding. For a semi-formal or formal wedding, the groom will need a tuxedo. A tuxedo is the formal jacket worn by men on special day or formal occasions. The most popular colors are black, white, and gray etc

Things to Consider
In selecting your formal wear, remember the requirement of your wedding, the time of day, and the bride's gown. Consider darker colors for a fall or winter wedding and lighter colors for a spring or summer wedding. When selecting a place to rent your tuxedo, check the reputation of the shop. Make sure they have a wide variety of makes and styles to choose from. Reserve tuxedos for yourself and your ushers several weeks before the wedding to insure a wide variety and to allow enough time for alterations. Plan to pick up the tuxedos a few days before the wedding to allow time for last minute alterations in case they don't fit properly. Out-of-town men in your wedding party can be sized at any tuxedo shop. They can send their measurements to you or directly to the shop where you are going to rent your tuxedos. Ask about the store's return policy and be sure you hand over to the appropriate person (usually your best man) the responsibility of returning all tuxedos within he time allotted. Ushers customarily pay for their own tuxedos.

Wedding is a big day in everyone's life be it girl or boy. For a guy wedding is the last part of his bachelorhood. It marks the end of his carefree days of being the eligible bachelor. Wedding calls for more responsibilities and commitment. In our country not many grooms concentrate on planning their wedding outfits just as elaborately as the brides do and they really miss out on a lot of details. But it is important to decide what you will wear on your wedding day. You must organize the styling of the attire you will wear as well as the color keeping in mind the complete look. It is not only your dress you have to decide but your hairstyle, accessories and skin care should also be taken care off. There are various pre wedding functions so you have to decide clothes for all those function.

How formal you need to be for your wedding day is the first consideration with grooms wear: pub or palace, loch side inn, chic city boutique or country house hotel, grand castle, lighthouse, boat, atop a mountain, spring, summer, autumn, winter, outdoors or indoors - and so forth! For informal there's lounge suits, black-tie works well for an evening do, for a formal wedding you've dinner suit, tails, frock coats and white tie. But in Scotland you have one outfit that can be safely selected for any style of wedding - the kilt. Highland Dress and tartan are among the most dramatic and romantic of all the symbols of Scotland and Scots believe it to be the finest National Dress in the world!

Exactly when the first tartans and first kilts evolved is vague. The word tartan derives from the French 'tartaine' which means checkered cloth. The unique tartans were simple checks of one or two colours, dyed with local plants, roots, berries and trees. Thus people in the same Highland areas of Scotland would wear the same coloured tartans. Nowadays there are over 5,000 tartans and it is part of a 200 million pound industry. Clans were groups of people under the control of a chief whose name was adopted by his local subjects, thus their clothing became one means of identifying a clansman's origins, so in turn their tartan became the clan tartan. The Gaelic 'Feileadh Mor', the 'Feileadh Bhreacain' or the 'Belted plaid' are the predecessor to the modern day kilt. Originally it was a basic garment of 6ft tall cloth, belted around the waist and draped over the shoulder. The modern-day kilt owes its origins to the eighteenth century. If the subject interests you there's more on the history of Highland Dress and tartan on the informative website of Kinloch Anderson one of Scotland's oldest and foremost Highland Dress experts which holds

Trews are as a genuine style of flat terrain Dress as the kilt. Originally made up of breeches and stockings all of one piece, modern day trews are more like trousers, made in tartan but without a side seam and often high waisted so as to be worn with a short jacket as an alternative to the kilt.
Then there are additional, necessary accessories that form part of Highland Dress such as the Sgain Dubh (Gaelic for black knife) worn nowadays for ornamental purposes, the kilt pin, kilt hose and garter flashes, headwear, ties and brogues. The best place to start would be our Groomswear suppliers search. That will take you to an extensive variety of outfitters who offer both hire services or who can dress you out from head to toe in an outfit that is ultimately likely to be passed on as a family heirloom.

The next thing to choose is whether the groom's party will all dress the same (which can look stunning). If it is to be Highland Wear does the groom have a clan tartan. If not perhaps just choose one you like and ask your bride for her thoughts as you could begin to tie in a Highland Wear theme with the outfits worn by the bride's party (who may of course decide for you which tartan it is to be!). Finally, in Scotland it is considered lucky on her wedding day for a bride to put an old sixpence coin into her shoe. A pleasant touch would be for her groom to have that sent to her on the eve of her wedding. A search on the popular auction websites usually results in your being luck sufficient to secure one for a few pounds.
