If you want to rock out at your wedding like Mick Jagger while remaining as hip and cool, we got your back.
At the end of the day, everyone needs a checklist, none more so than the man of the moment. So, grooms, it’s time to grab your top hat and tails and listen up. Firstly, whether preparing or planning the perfect vintage-inspired wedding, you will need to look the part.
Visit a men’s wedding hire suit shop, go wild on a tux and cummerbund or keep it plain. Meanwhile, for beach weddings, you may want to opt for something a little more airy and comfortable. After all, we don’t want those sweat patches showing up on those wedding snaps!
Think a crisp linen suit, cotton waistcoat with shirt and trousers as well as some banging brogues to match. If you have a color scheme, aim to incorporate those specific tones into your gear.
Whatever your choice of attire may be, your glad rags are one of the most important factors to get right on the night.
So what else is on your checklist? Drop it like it’s hot as we roundup our ultimate groom tips to ensure your big day goes spectacularly.

An important but nonetheless task that is often sometimes underestimated is arranging accommodation.
It does not matter one bit if you are hosting the event in a lavish venue or some far-flung resort with majestic views. Regardless, it’s not a party without your invitees. In this way, contact the hotel or location if you are hosting a big or small affair.
This is especially the case when it comes to people flying in from overseas or out-of-towners who will require overnight accommodation. In addition, negotiate with the manager to hold a number of rooms in order to strike the best deal for your entire wedding party.
The more business you place with the venue, the better chances you will have of obtaining a great price for yourself and others. You too can live like a King in the Honeymoon or Presidential Suite…if for only one night.
Everyone’s a winner baby.
If you really want to feel like a rock star at your big bash then you should look to accessorize.
And boy oh boy there are tough decisions to be made to rival any busy office exec. If you want to add a pop of color not to mention texture, a bold boutonniere is the way to go.
Meanwhile, for a bit of extra bling, you could look at an enticing tie clip, jewel-encrusted cufflinks or a magnificent timepiece. It’s all about accentuating the positives and making your tux or suit shine all night long like Lionel Richie.
There are lots of tips on choosing the perfect groom accessories making the ultimate fashion statement.
