Charcoal + Salmon Groom Fashion

Nothing like a little Tuesday groom fashion to brighten yet another chilly March day. These pretty vintage colors are more like the road less taken in terms of wedding fashion.. it’s not everyday you see charcoal and salmon on the groom but the vintage look is growing on me. What do you think??

Christmas Countdown: Groomsmen Gift Guide

Because I couldn’t get enough of bridal party gifts, I thought maybe even the groom would need a little help picking out the perfect gift for his men on the 2nd day of our Christmas countdown! So while we kept things classic and simple, I think these should touch on some basic ideas for a groomsmen gift. From drinking accessories, to cuff links, some shaving items to shoes… yep, shoes {coordinated groomsmen in cute suede shoes (#2) can never be out of style, and if that’s not your thing, how about a comfy moccasin for the after party (#5)} we have a little bit of this and a little bit of that to create a classic groomsmen gift guide!

Winter Wedding Boutonniere Love

With my favorite season practically knocking the door down I get more excited everyday for tons of fabulously pretty winter wedding ideas. We already kicked off the winter season here a few weeks ago with a winter post here and there but when I heard Christmas music today in the drug store I practically died and went to winter wedding blogging heaven! So with one of my all-time favorite underused wedding topics, decisions, and unfortunately yes, blog posts too, I present lots of love for winter wedding boutonniere picks for your handsome groom and of course his dashing groomsmen.

So without too much blabbing on and on today, I’ll leave it to you visual lovers out there to just enjoy what you can do with the winter wedding floral palette. There are endless options and no it doesn’t have to be all red or green (although I’m definitely not opposed to the awesome red berries (first, third, last photos), or on the topic of berries, blueberries can work as well (ninth photo) but what I love most about the winter wedding boutonniere is that it’s a lovely way to express a little creativity for the groom and his men while adding a hint of winter charm without going overboard…

Khaki Crazy (Groomsmen Suits)

Well here at One to Wed, we are well past due for a post devoted to our grooms! So today, we’re hoping to overcompensate for the lack of groom-related fashion, discussion and everything groom pretty with one of our favorite ideas for the groom and groomsmen that is just in time for the end of summer.. the khaki suit!

We know you will love this too even if you were always set on The Classic Tux because this style is perfect for the spring, summer, or fall, plus it’s casual, relaxed, and ultra trendy. And my final gush factor; the groomsmen always look SO good… trust me, you cannot go wrong with khaki.

So for today, just some inspiration because we realize there are too many khaki styles and combinations to go through one by one. We’re hoping one of these will catch your eye and capture your wedding style!

The Classic Wedding Tux

The classic tuxedo… well not quite today but close. To prevent boredom from the same tuxedo over and over, we’re spicing things up with a few different variations because they are all equally fun and fitting for a wedding depending on your groom of course!

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) the tuxedo market is far easier to navigate than the wedding dress market but that doesn’t mean there aren’t many options for the groom. From bow tie to buttons and even a black on black (not quite tuxedo but close enough…see below) there are plenty of options to fit the man of the hour. But there weren’t always options. So where did the classic tuxedo begin… it all comes back to British royalty as usual, but this time the trendsetter was King Edward the VII. Well before there was the tuxedo there was (and still is the tailcoat) and the normal (casual) suit for those outdoorsy type things that royals and others used to do back in the 19th century. So the fashion buffs of the 1860s decided to combine the tailcoat fabric with the casual jacket making the tuxedo jacket. And thanks to the trendsetting King who took to the style, the tuxedo fashion was born. Now of course it eventually made its way out of England and some 150 years later, though it may not be the traditional groom’s attire in all parts of the world, it certainly is in some. So today, here’s to the tux!
