One thing that is interesting about weddings? The fashion! Yes, we may usually look at the bride’s gown and the groom’s suit first, but we also love looking at the entourage’s clothes. You can have so much fun with it!
Whether you choose floral patterns or sequins for your bridesmaids, and suspenders or cheeky bow ties for your groomsmen, the possibilities are endless!
Picking out your wedding dress can be a fashion debacle on its own. But choosing outfits for your entourage? Now that might come in tricky, too.
It’s your wedding day and all of your plans are on the way. Now that you have your motif, let’s turn the spotlight to your entourage. Often, we overlook what the entourage will wear on the big day, take whatever is on the rack but this shouldn’t be. The suit should be as impressive as a gown should be stunning.
After all, there are many things to consider, such as finding dresses that’ll fit the theme, flatter everyone’s physique, and of course, please your taste. So if you haven’t locked in ideas just yet, check out these chic and stylish outfits for your entourage and always make sure they will like it.
Consider Your Theme
Browsing thru online shops and even visiting designers will give you an idea about the kind of wedding gown that will fit your wedding theme. A traditional ball gown would look great if you’re planning a classic or romantic wedding.
But for a beach wedding or bohemian setting, you may need a wedding gown that is more of the sheath type.
Consider The Venue And Season
Aside from the look, you also need to think about your comfort when wearing the gown. You’ll be stuck with that gown for almost 8 hours, from preps to end of the reception (unless you have another one for reception).
So think of your venue and the season. If you have an outdoor venue in summer, you may want to choose an off-shoulder dress or one with lighter or less fabric. It will be a different gown if your wedding is in a colder place and it’s in November or December.
How Much Do You Pay For It?
This is something you have to be clear with your designer. Before you start looking thru the gowns in his/her collection, tell the designer how much you are willing to pay for a gown.
This way, he/she will help you choose from those collections that you can afford. It is frustrating to try on a gown, think that it’s perfect and learn after that it is way beyond your budget.
Along with this, you can also try working with designers that are starting since their collection may be still within the budget. Check out your hometown too if there are rising stars when it comes to designing gowns.
Buy Or Rent
Whether you decide to purchase a custom-made suit or borrow one, both have its pros. Buying one would mean it’s personally made for them. Aside from having it fit perfectly, you can also add several touches. You can also bring it at home after which means it can be worn on multiple occasions.
On the hand, rentals are really good if you are on a budget and there are always several options. If you want to compromise, you can have the suit tailored but rent it out afterwards.
Your Sense Of Fashion
You also become beautiful because of your personality. It has to show at your wedding dress as well. With this, check out your wardrobe and see what kind of fashion sense you have. Are you more of a street-style girl or are you leaning towards elegant pieces?
Once you have decided on which theme you want for your wedding, everything follows through with what you and your groom will wear. Also, consider the venue of the event. Opt for the fancy tuxedo if you’re having a formal wedding.
If it’s a beach or garden wedding, recent trends show us that men can wear more laidback pieces. Make sure that the style also reflects your partner’s personality so he can parade around comfortably.
It all comes down to what makes the outfit more enticing: the accessories, especially the shoes. Once again, always take into account your theme and venue. We have seen male entourage wearing the traditional leather ones to the more relaxed sneakers.
On the more formal side, a tie surely does complete a look. The seven-fold tie is surely the best as it takes time to form but the result gives you a very dapper effect. Top it all of with cufflinks and they’re good to go.
