Irresistible Wedding Looks for Grooms

While we’re all busy pinning our dream wedding gowns to our secret Pinterest board, let’s get real here for a second. Grooms need to look as gorgeous during the big day–it’s their wedding too! So today, we’re breaking down some of the looks your groom can don come the wedding day. Whether your groom is the classic or the creative type, we’ve got some style tips for each! Check ’em out below!

The Classic

This style has got the three D’s down to a tee–dapper, debonair, and definitely dashing! If your wedding is leaning towards classic romantic, then this suit/tuxedo and tie/bow tie combo is the way to go!

TIP: We cannot stress this enough–tailor the fit to perfection. It doesn’t matter how expensive the suit is, if the fit isn’t right, then you’re in trouble. Remember, taper, taper, taper! Believe us, it makes all the difference!

10 Bridal Myths You Need to Stop Believing

There will always be wedding traditions. But don’t fret, ladies! Although there are “rules” that are great to follow, there are actually some that can be broken! Often, as brides, we tend to be scared to break away from the norm or the usual “beliefs” that are imposed to us by family, friends, or society in general. Here at Bride and Breakfast, we’re out to tell you that it’s ok to take the road less traveled… so we’ve come up with a list of ten Bridal Myths that we’ll gladly bust for you!

Myth #1: Beadless and sequin-less gowns are just not formal enough!

At some point in time, it became the usual practice to put some sort of beadwork for bridesmaid dresses. Today, this tradition is still common, but is not a hard and fast rule. The fear of most is that the gowns will look informal and inelegant. This is actually far from the truth. Beadless gowns look young, fresh, and effortless. If you want to glam it up a bit, make your brides wear fun accessories such as statement earrings, necklaces, or bracelets. Or even using stylish minaudieres can complete the look.

Myth #2: I need to wear “Bridal Shoes”.

This day and age is probably the most fun time to be a bride, since it’s actually quite acceptable for you to wear any fashionable shoe that is pretty and fits your personality. You don’t necessarily have to wear white, cream, or nude–a variety of colors (and styles) work well with wedding gowns. Another tip I would give is to choose a shoe that you can wear after the wedding–it’s way more cost-efficient that way.

Myth #3: Beautiful gown = “beautiful” wedding.

Couples need to start approaching wedding style with an overall cohesive approach. Sometimes brides get focused on just having a beautiful gown and think that it’s the end-all-be-all of the wedding look. The key here is balance and coherence. If your gown is too grand and everything else in the wedding is bare and simple, then there is a disconnect with the overall look. Another thing to consider is matching your gown style to your wedding theme. For example, a modern dress goes with a modern theme, but a vintage gown won’t. So if you want a laid back vibe for your decor, then you can also pick out a gown design that also reflects that easy and laid back vibe.
