Fashion trends for bridegrooms

The bridal world of fashion is always buzzing with fresh and interesting trends. Every season brings forth several new ideas and unique designs, that are entirely different from what had been trending in the previous season.

Fashion for grooms is not far behind. The summer and spring catwalks brought us some equally interesting and dashing designs, all for the man in love. Let us take a look at what is in store for this season and next in wedding fashion for the grooms.

Light and bright tuxedos

The signature look of the bridegroom in a black or dark colored tux, with a light shirt inside is being replaced with lighter and more cheerful colors. The fitted tux is also going for an overhaul, with the latest being loose fitting baggy style tuxes and trousers. This is not only more casual, it looks stylish and dashing too.

Stripes and prints

With the wedding dress taking on new forms and looks with vivid patterns and prints, men are also introduced to fresh and fun suits that sport stripes and prints. Inspired by high street style, groom fashion is moving away from the traditional wedding look and is now more relaxed and casual. Let your personality shine through on your big day through your choice of a suit in patterns or stripes that are a reflection of the real you. Choices range from subtle textures and prints in gray and black, to bright and vibrant accents in red, orange, camel and brown on darker suits.

Soft, yet formal

Tweed jackets bring out the perfect blend of a formal look with soft touches. Suitable for both traditional and modern style weddings, you can even experiment with colors. Who said colors were for women? It’s your day too, so go for superbly tailored softly textured tweed jackets and woolly suits in interesting colors like navy or burgundy. Read more about how to rock this trend at the Rock My Wedding website.

Three-piece suits

This is a great hit this year. The addition of the waistcoat to the traditional tux adds a whole new degree of sophistication. You do not have to match it entirely to your tuxedo and trousers. Color contrasts and interesting combinations are all the rage, and this allows you to experiment with different price tags and fabric finishes to achieve the look that is just right for your personality. The other great thing about three-piece suits is that it also opens up a world of accessories to match your attire to. We are thinking cool hats and pocket watch chains; what do you say?

Boho vests

Now, for the cool dude who is getting married in a tropical paradise; bright colors and loose shirts effortlessly paired with casual khakis are beckoning you. For a semi-formal look, that is still appropriate for the wedding, mix and match printed and patterned boho vests are the top choice. Checkered shirts, bow ties and suspenders are all in style, so make your pick.

Don’t you just love these looks? I think groom fashion is getting better every year. For more interesting updates on what is hot and happening in the world of wedding fashion, and for all your shopping needs, come visit us at Best for Bride.

Trends we love: Brides in Pants

There is a certain image that is associated with our idea of a bride—a beautiful woman draped in yards of fabric that flows into layers of a stunning skirt and culminates in a spectacular train. She is a vision in white as she gracefully glides down the aisle in her wedding attire, complete with veil and a scintillating tiara.

As times have changed, so have women. The modern bride doesn’t always conform to this traditional idea. Take a look at the bridal catwalks and you will see designers breaking bridal traditions with show stopping designs. More recently, we have been noticing the wedding dress facing stiff competition from modern pant suits as you can see on the 10 biggest bridal trends for spring 2016 at Fashionista.

Join us as we explore all about the types of weddings where this attire is appropriate, the body types that it is most suitable for and more.

Pant suits for the stylish bride

Every bride wants to look different and special on her wedding day. Sure, you can achieve this by choosing a different colored dress or a short hemline. But, nothing screams unique like a bridal pant suit. It allows you to fashion a unique style statement and helps you stand out as a bride who will be remembered for long because of her unusual outfit choice. A chic, well-tailored pant suit is not only stylish and modern, but practical as well. You will not feel weighed down by heavy layers of fabric and can let your smart and stunning personality shine through on your big day.

Who can carry it off?

The answer is anyone. Just like there are wedding dresses for every woman, there are bridal pant suits too. You just have to find one that suits your body type and build. Narrow pants are slimming and look great on hourglass figures and women who want to look lean. Petite and slender women can choose pants that flare at the base or those that are loose-fitting and stylish. The spotlight is on minimalist white designs as they look impeccable and show off your best features. If you rather prefer a feminine and soft look, you can choose divided skirts or pair your trousers with lace or peplum tops.

Accessories

The best accessories that add a hint of glamour to a white pant suit are colored gold. Consider pairing your outfit with a stylish hat for classic glamour. High heels and peep toe sandals work for your feet. If your wedding is in winter, pair your pant suit with a fur stole or wrap and add a blazer. Keep your accessories simple, but stylish as you do not want to divert focus from your spectacular dress choice with overbearing accessories.

When is the pant suit appropriate?

The type of pant suit you choose determines the type of wedding it is appropriate for. For a casual, outdoor affair, tactile and light breezy fabric tops would be suitable. You can wear it for a formal event also (although not for a traditional one). We suggest well-tailored wedding pant suits in elegant silk for a formal wedding.

The wedding pant suit surely isn’t for everyone. So, are you ready to experiment with this trend, or would you like to stick to the traditional wedding dress? Take a look at the various designs that we have at Best for Bride and find out whether this trend is as interesting as it sounds for yourself.

Breaking wedding traditions: Say Yes to colorful Wedding dresses

When we think of a wedding dress, isn’t it a long flowing white gown that pops into mind?

White wedding dresses have been popular for more than a century now, that it is impossible to imagine a bride in anything but white. While the length, style and design of the gown may vary, white is invariably the first color choice in wedding dresses.

But, what if you are a rebel bride who doesn’t care for fashion rules? Or what if you feel that it would be nice to surprise everyone by not wearing white to your wedding? Or it could simply be that you want to dress for your big day in your favorite color, which isn’t white?

We say, go ahead! You will certainly not be the first bride to sport a colored wedding gown. Do it right, and you can even be the prettiest bride your guests have set eyes upon. Here is why we love colored wedding dresses, and why you should try it too.

You can wear a color that matches your personality

We identify with certain colors because they are a reflection of our personality. Whether your passionate nature is defined by fiery red or your level-headed approach to life is characterized by cool blue, you can show off your true persona by choosing a colored wedding gown. While white is beautiful and has an endearing charm to it, it may not be a true expression of who you are. So, be bold and try out a colored wedding dress. Who knows, you may love it more than you expected.

Make your wedding more memorable

Just when everyone was expecting you to walk down the aisle in a pretty white wedding gown, you appear in a different color. Watch your wedding guests look amazed already. If there is one way to make sure your wedding is remembered, it is by choosing a unique wedding dress. It will be anything but common.

Colorful wedding dresses can be classic

You do not have to compromise on missing details on your wedding dress, just because you choose a colored one. There are many designer collections that focus on colorful wedding dresses, and you can find one in the silhouette that you desire without much ado. Just like with a regular wedding dress, you can also customize your colored wedding dress to meet your expectations.

This unconventional choice tells the world who you are

While many women try to stand out from the crowd, it isn’t unusual to find them going by tradition where their weddings are concerned. A bride who is confident of herself and is bold enough to proclaim that she is different, will be comfortable in a colorful wedding dress. If you are certain of yourself, and love a colored dress, don’t hesitate to choose it because it isn’t white. Go ahead and add a dose of drama to your wedding.

So, do you think a colorful wedding dress is for you, or do you dread the very idea?

Whether you want a bold and colorful wedding dress, or prefer a traditional white one, find your choice at Best for Bride.
