Well Groomed!

More and more we are seeing suits as the style for grooms and their men, so consider all of these rules applied to the store or website that you and your hubby choose from
 

Selecting formalwear: Numerous styles of formalwear are available to consider. The formalwear shop or retail/online store you choose can suggest styles and colors appropriate to the time of day. Even though etiquette books specify what the groom and groomsmen should wear, almost anything is acceptable today. Accessories may be rented or purchased to match the bridesmaids' dresses, or even ordered specially if you can't find the desired color. Although the bride should assist in choosing the groom's attire, make sure that he is comfortable with the style selected.

Questions to ask:  Are the locations convenient for the groomsmen? Shipping time has to be considered if ordering online, in case it isn't exactly what you were looking for. What is the price, and what does that include? Finally, you must decide if you feel comfortable and confident that the store will deliver what you ordered.

Customized look for groom and groomsmen: formalwear has progressed considerably. The personalities of the groom and groomsmen can emerge without too much deviation from traditional styles. Paisley, plaid or polka dot cummerbunds and bow ties add a special flair. At the reception, the groom can be less formal and put on sporty or Disney® character accessories. Check out all the new styles and sensations available in formalwear today.

Out-of-town groomsmen and ushers: If groomsmen and ushers live out-of-town, make sure you can supply them with measurement cards of some sort. Any clothing or alterations shop in the groomsman's hometown should be able to do a fitting. It is imperative that these gentlemen take the time to try on their entire tuxedos/suits when they pick them up!

Bring extra socks: Have the groom buy a few extra pairs of socks that match the formalwear. Be sure these extra socks are available where the groomsmen plan to dress. Inevitably someone will show up with only white athletic socks. This may seem a minor point, but white socks stick out like a sore thumb in photographs.
