Well-Groomed Groom: Bali-Inspired Beachy Chic

“The outfit really came from looking at Bali Landscapes and trying to match what I consider a "beachy" look. I wanted to match the light colors of the ocean and sand.”  Alex - the featured well-groomed groom.


If you seek a beachy-chic wedding, let’s head to Bali and look no further than Ruth & Alex’s. We're hooked on their play of colors! 

The groom's casually polished approach didn’t let the little details escape from his attention, but rather brings to light a real sophisticated spin on bohemian Bali inspired look. Also notice the choice of baby's breath as single floral variety in their party? Featured on the bride's crown, the groom's boutonniere, and the centerpiece - we suspect, not only did it carry their care-free-bohemian spirited souls, it's also a deliberate reflection of the white sea foam you'd spot on a sandy Balinese beach.  All the right moves! 

“We went with a well groomed, casual beach style for our island wedding. Light colors intended to blend with the Bali landscapes. The light blue jacket and off-white slacks signified a Balinese beach. Saturated brown shoes allowed for some contrast and provided the outfit bold color. The outfit focused on an overall a bohemian look, and we juxtaposed that approach with a well manicured hairstyle, black tie, belt and a ceramic watch with accents of light blue on the watch face.”


Uber stylish and simply perfection.

Well-Groomed Groom: Beach Wedding with Superhero Elements

Our featured Well-Groomed Groom, Justin Reno, likes thing casual and he chose to have a casual, intimate beach wedding with only the closest members of his and his bride's circles. And here's when things got interestingly cool: he chose a fun black-white-grey combo attire, a trendy fedora hat, and... custom shoes, bow tie and rings adorned of his superhero logo: Batman! A neat way to fuse his passion for The Dark Knight, no?

Here's what he says:
"Overall, I am a pretty casual person with a love of superheroes. I feel very lucky to have married someone who let me stay true to myself and indulge in my nerdy side. Keeping the mainstays neutral allowed me to have some fun with things like my shoes and bow tie. Both were Batman adorned and, best of all, match my wedding ring!"

Well-Groomed Q&A: Navy Tuxedo with Brown Shoes?

Q: 
My finacee and I are doing an outdoor ceremony and reception at a local vineyard. I have decided to do navy suits, dusty shale ties, and light brown shoes for the grooms. There is one problem, I have an identical twin brother. So, to distinguish myself from him, I've decided to dress it up just a bit more and wear a navy blue tux (all navy, no black in the tux. Calvin Klein Navy extreme slim fit tux). I will also be wearing a bow-tie. I would like to wear light brown shoes with the naxy tux, however, everything I've read states you should wear black shoes with any tux. What is your opinion? Thanks. -  Josh

A:
Hi Josh, Congratulations on getting married. If your tux has a black lapel, of course we would recommend wearing black shoes. But since your tux has a blue lapel, then you can either pair it with black shoes for a traditional style, or with brown shoes, if traditional is not really your direction :)

And if you pair it with the right accessories, navy tux and brown shoes combo would look so sleek and modern!

Here's our guide on shoe v tux colors:
