Groomsmen Accessories

Once you've picked your wedding ties, complete you groomsmen's look with these popular accessories.

Pocket Squares

Pocket squares are the most popular accessory paired with wedding ties. Worn in the jacket pocket, this decorative piece completes a formal wedding look. Aside from a black tie wedding where a black or white pocket square is customary, there really are no rules when it comes to selecting wedding pocket squares. Most often, groomsmen will wear pocket squares that match the tie exactly. This is the easiest and most stress-free way to find pocket squares for your groomsmen. You can also use the pocket square to display additional wedding colors with a single pocket square or two, like the technique shown in the photo to the right. Pair a pattern tie with a solid pocket square, or even two coordinating patterns. Have fun, it's your day afterall!

Tie Bars

Tie bars are a popular groomsmen accessory that look good, but are practical, too. This simple accessory clasps to the tie to keep it and the tie tail in place. A tie bar will keep your groomsmen's ties looking sharp and eliminate wedding photos with neckties thrown over a shoulder or flying in the wind. (For outdoor weddings that forego the jacket or vest, tie bars are a must!)

Visually, tie bars are a great way to add a secondary or accent wedding color to your groomsmen's attire, too. Only have one wedding color? Choose a colored tie bar in the same color as the tie or go for classic silver or gold.

Socks

Classic black is out! Colorful and patterned socks are the newest trend to hit groomsmen attire. From solid colors to argyle, stripes and novelty patterns, consider socks in your wedding colors or styles to match the personalities of your wedding party. Come wedding day, don't forget to get a picture of all of the guy showing off their stylish feet!

Suspenders

Because they are so often paired with bow ties, suspenders really are the new cummerbund. While cummerbunds are traditionally a more formal accessory, as a groomsmen accessory suspenders are often less formal and worn without a jacket or vest. (We love the trendy bow tie and skinny suspender look that is particulary popular for rustic, outdoor weddings.)

Don't let the bow tie/suspender look deter you from pairing suspenders with a necktie or under a jacket. A wider suspender looks great and still formal when the jacket has lost out to the dance floor by the end of the reception.

Cummerbunds

If you're sticking to tradition, pair your groomsmen bow ties with a cummerbund. This formal accessory attaches around a man's waist (pleats facing up) and is typically worn in the same color as the bow tie. Back in the day, Victorian-era men used the cummerbund's pleats as shallow pockets to hold opera or symphany tickets. Today the pleats aren't too practical as pockets, but it will catch crumbs during the wedding reception.
