What suit styles will flatter a groom who does not boast a six-pack stomach?

My future hubby has drunk his fair share of 6 packs instead of having a 6pack....if you get my drift. What would be the best suit to dress him in so he can feel and look extra good on his day as well.

Not that many men can boast a six pack built from muscle. But if your fiancé makes smart choices in the style of suit he selects, he can easily help to draw the focus away from his brewed pack, to say, his sparkling smile and eyes instead. Dark coloured suits are certainly recommended for their slimming…

Who Picks The Tux?

You’re right. You should be able to pick out your own tux instead of having your bride-to-be tell you what you’re going to wear. And your point is well taken about the fact that you can’t see what she’ll be wearing, so why should she see what you’re wearing? Still though, leaving your fiancé totally…

Who Pays For His Wedding Ring?

Generally the couple shops together for both wedding bands — you’ll probably pay for them together, or each buy the other’s band as a gift. Or, you can each pay for your own. How to deal with the cost of the wedding bands is really up to the two of you.

Don’t worry too much about not being a perfect match — if you own tuxes already, there’s no sense in not using them! To make sure you and the guys stand out, think outside the tux. Find ties that match the hue of bridesmaid dresses or bouquets. And definitely pipe up when it comes to…

What To Wear For A Tropical Wedding?

Linen is great for the tropics, but if it’s May, your fiancé might want to forego the coat and just wear a loose shirt and pants, perhaps with a tie. A light cotton suit is another option; it breathes better and won’t crease as quickly as linen does. What he wears depends on the formality…

How Can I Help My Groom Look His Best?

It’s easy to forget that there is more a man can do to look his absolute best other than getting a shave and a trim. Perhaps you can treat your honey to a facial. While he may resist at first, once he’s settled in the chair and feels the soothing steam and relaxing masks, he’ll…

Can I Wear Tails For A Daytime Wedding?

Not really. Tails are more of a super, ultraformal evening thing. If you like the formal look of a long jacket however, think about a cutaway or morning coat for the groom. This is a very Victorian-looking, grey, often pinstriped coat, worn with a vest and ascot. It’s very dapper, very Hugh Grant in Four…

What To Wear For A Late Afternoon Wedding?

It used to be proper etiquette that tuxedos were not worn before 6 p.m., but the rules are more relaxed today. For a late afternoon ceremony with a dinner reception to follow, it’s fine for your groom and the other men in the wedding party to don tuxedos. Besides, they’ll look more appropriate for the…
