Ideas abound for making the bride’s details personal and special, but creative ways to personalize groom details can be harder to find. I love when couples find unique ways to make their wedding their own, and I’ve rounded up five creative ways my couples have found to incorporate the groom’s interests, personality, sense of style, or just something special to him in the groom details!
It’s the groom’s big day as well, and as a mom of two boys (and a future mother of the groom someday), I have a soft spot for the groom’s side of the family along with the bride’s. I hope this helps spark some ideas as you plan all the details of your wedding!
Customize the boutonniere:
Evan loves to go duck hunting, and his florist incorporated a single duck feather into his boutonniere in a way that’s subtle and elegant. See Eliza and Evan’s full wedding day blog here:
Incorporate mom’s wedding dress:
Blake had a lace piece of his mother’s wedding dress sewn on the inside of his suit coat as a way to honor her on his wedding day. He did this as a surprise, and she loved it and even shed some happy tears. It was so sweet of him to take the time and thought to do this! See Kelsey and Blake’s full wedding day blog here:
Embroider the wedding date
Nate had his wedding date embroidered under the collar of his suit! He wore the collar turned down so the embroidery was hidden, so it was a subtle and sweet way to add a special personal touch to his wedding-day suit.
Personalize the groom’s wedding ring
Jeremy had his white-gold wedding ring inscribed with words from their favorite song – a beautiful way to make this ring even more meaningful with a phrase that’s part of their story.
Chuck had his wedding ring custom-made out of wood from a Tennessee whiskey barrel in honor of their new home in Nashville.
Get monogrammed cuff links
Solomon had monogrammed silver cuff links as part of his wedding details. Sophisticated and personal, he’ll wear them throughout his life and they’ll always remind him of the day he married his beautiful wife, Gabrielle. See Solly and Gaby’s full wedding day blog here:
Wear a distinctive tie
Brian expressed his bold style with a pink and white tie and a colorful boutonniere – and he pulled it off with perfectly! I’ve also seen grooms do this with colorful bow ties, which I love. Anything to express your personality just adds to the beauty and special feel of your wedding day.
