Well-Groomed Groom: He Hearts Tats

Wear This: Navy Boots

Forget black and brown. Navy's the new neutral on my radar for boots this season. Sport them for engagement sessions and laid-back weddings.

Make them work with jeans, khakis, and all kinds of colors and patterns. Try a patterned shirt, scarf, or trapper hat.

Well-Groomed Engagement: Three's Company

Sometimes the baby comes before the marriage, and wedding traditions turn into a family affair. This dad/groom's relaxed style is mirrored by his son for this outdoor engagement shoot. His pink shirt is toughened up with a grey cardigan, and a floral tie unites the two. Little man sports a light blue shirt with butterscotch vest, which compliments dad's color palette, because grey and brown are great together. No matter what, avoid the urge to wear matching outfits at all costs.

Sponsored Post | Simply Wood Rings

Driving a Prius, calculating your carbon footprint, and making sure the recycling is on the curb every Tuesday? Ok, maybe you're not doing any of those things, but you and your fiance just like to buck convention. Either way, Simply Wood Rings has just what you need, and their name says it all.

And don't think that just because they're a non-traditional material, that you're pigeonholed into one type of style for your eco-friendly ring. Each ring is handcrafted from salvaged wood, and you can choose a mahogany ring that's inlaid with crushed stone, a bog wood ring with contrasting coloring, or even a rosewood ring that holds a blue topaz.

Still not finding what you're looking for? Have them turn something significant into a custom ring. Love to play co-ed baseball together or go boating at the lake? Why not have a bat or dock plank turned into a cherished piece?

Well-Groomed Groom: Booted & Casually Suited

A full beard, maroon pants, and a loose tie combined with a navy blazer and lace-up boots give this groom a look that's a little casual and a lot cool. His pants are a perfect match for the bride's floral crown.
