Hello there, grooms-to-be. You don’t get much of a look in with this whole wedding schemozzle, do you? It’s hardly fair. Not every bride relishes the idea of micromanaging the entire day. And not every bloke would prefer to be at the pub sinking tinnies instead of choosing table decorations. It’s just television and film has led us to believe that that’s the way it goes. Seagull Gifts asks you to reconsider the role of the man on and leading up to the Big Day.
Menfolk, it’s time to stand up and be counted in your own wedding preparations! Groom Power! Nix the beef wellington! Say no to gardenias- after all, you’re more of a cherry blossom man! And for gods sake, take charge of your costume. Your bride certainly will have done so for herself. She’s not going to idly sit in front of the television while someone else masterminds her outfit.
Yeah fair enough, I hear you say- but how? What do I need apart from a half decent suit?
Accessories, chaps. Cuff links, foot links, rings, pendants. You can make a small but important statement- ‘this day is important to me, too’- with some well chosen accessories. They don’t have to be of the staid, traditional variety, either. Modern men’s accessories feature all manner of wild and wonderful themes, motifs, and materials. Metal, cardboard, and paper, to name a few. You might have always nursed a secret desire to be captain of a ship. Your wedding day is about indulging fantasies- why not choose a nautically themed pendant for your suit lapel? Your bride (or groom) is certainly not going to be turned off by the idea of a sailor.
We recently took a look at the trend for ‘geek chic’ glasses, but what to do when you want to achieve a more complete look that takes ALL its cues from the increasingly fashionable nerd herd? Sure, an offbeat accessory here and there can imbue an otherwise smart suit or muted ensemble with a touch of geeky kook, but if you really want to showcase your inner Sheldon then you can top-to-toe your look with a few handy pointers.
As the ongoing trend for the look continues to cross over into the mainstream, it means there’s never been a time where embracing your inner geek has been so acceptably in vogue. From real-life big brains such as Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg flying the flag for techies, to cool celebs like Jason Schwartzman and Xavier Dolan embodying the look and lifestyle – it’s definitely hip to be square in 2012.
