We all know the classic wedding tradition that a bride should have something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue for her big day… but what about the groom? We think that it’s just as important for him to have some special traditions for the wedding day too! Not sure what items are best suited for the male counterpart? We’re sharing our top picks for each with you today!

Getting married can be expensive. There’s no need to go out and replace everything you already own just for the big day! Save yourself a little bit of money and use a tie clip you already own. While it may not be a bank-breaking purchase for a new one, every penny counts and chances are you already own a handful with no need to continue to add to the collection! Plus, wearing your favorite tie clip on the big day will make it even more special for future use.

We all know that your groom will be counting down the minutes until he gets to marry the love of his life, so make sure he’s prepared with a new watch! A great gift he can use regularly and be reminded of your special day. If it’s in the budget, we love the idea of having a special message engraved in the back of the face, even if it’s something as simple as your wedding date!

We love hearing stories of treasured family heirlooms that are passed down or shared for the big day. You don’t frequently sport a tuxedo in everyday life? Instead of going out and buying all the essential tux accessories, borrow some! Does your dad or grandfather have a special set of cufflinks with sentimental value? Perfect. We love the idea of bringing your family down the aisle with you.

Recently, many brides have been getting a special, short love note sewn into the back of their groom’s tie. We think this is the absolute sweetest idea! Tie it into the tradition by opting for a blue thread. It will create a long-lasting memory that you can cherish for years to come.
