Guys are programmed to avoid any clothing, color, or even cocktail that can be interpreted as soft or feminine. So, it’s rare that a groom embraces a pink and pale blue wedding palette. Rather than taking the easy way out and just adding a pink tie to a black suit, Luke styled a look that mixed a pink striped tie, light blue pants, a khaki vest, and dance shoes. Photog Kelly Tesar perfectly captured his pastel look.
from Luke (the groom): When it comes to the choices you make you have to keep an open mind. When I first started putting ideas together for myself and my groomsmen, I had an idea in mind of an all-khaki outfit with a vest and pants. Then I started looking around and found these fantastic blue pants from J. Crew that really made the outfit and colors pop. My advice would be have an idea of what you want to start with and then play around with it. You never know what you’ll like and you may surprise yourself when it comes down to your final decision.
Thanks for the tips, Luke! You had a lot of great points for guys considering a custom look.
