Get Trendy: Floral Groomswear

Bringing florals into your wedding can get pricey, but they really add a touch of whimsy and romance to your big day no matter the time of year. This spring, cut back on the fresh flowers and save some money by incorporating floral patterns into your wedding party’s attire! Dress your groom up with a skinny floral tie or a patterned dress shirt. We put together a list of the best ways to incorporate floral patterns into your groomsmen’s attire, but no matter how you do it, it can be an inexpensive way to add a pop of understated springtime elegance!

Ties

For a timeless approach, start with the tie! The options are endless, and there’s tons of inexpensive and unique ties available online that won’t break the bank. If your groom is feeling a little intimidated by the bright floral options, try out a subdued version, like this champagne one. It’s classic, but the pattern still adds a touch of elegance and makes the ensemble a lot more memorable. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, opt for a bold bowtie instead; we love this bright one from Etsy!

Pocket Square

To add a little more impact to your groom’s look, add a patterned pocket square! A floral handkerchief will photograph well, especially with a matching bowtie. Coordinating the two pieces will make a statement and really set your wedding party apart, so forget those boring solids and surprise your guests with something fun!

Dress Shirt

This one is for the boldest of the bold, the bravest of the brave. If your groom is daring, have him rock one of the newest wedding trends: a floral dress shirt. Against a solid jacket and tie, the floral print really pops, and the look can really tie the entire wedding party together. Less busy patterns are usually the best choice so they don’t overwhelm the look, but get as wild as you want, because this trend is only getting bigger. If you’re feeling confident enough to mix some patterns and get a really unique look, try incorporating a subtle floral print tie against a patterned shirt!

Subtle Accessories

If everything on this list is just a little too bold but you want to skip the old black and white tux, try incorporating some floral accessories that just hint at spring. Level up some classic cufflinks with adorable handmade ones from Etsy - these ones are to die for and super easy to rock. You could always try out some floral socks, too - they’re the perfect way to get any reluctant groom in on the trend!

Whether it be chandeliers, beaded backdrops, hanging florals or decorated natural structures why not take your floral design ideas to the next level… or I should say a higher level!!

One of 2018's most interesting floral trends is the idea of thinking in terms of  “keeping your eye to the sky.”

With that thought in mind, brides are now concentrating more on what you see above in their venues than what you see on the table. Why not make your wedding venue dazzle with unique ideas that are suspended from above! Nothing makes your guests more impressed than when they walk in and see something magnificent hanging from a ceiling, chandelier, rafter or beam. Having an aerial focal point not only gives your guests that “ta-da moment” as they enter your dream reception, but will be the crowning jewel of all your design elements coming together.

Brides need not be intimidated by the size or magnitude of what they choose because as always you have control with regards to the amount of money that you are comfortable spending. Always try to see what you have available to begin with and start there. Choosing seasonal flowers and using structures that are available in your venue room are the best ways to begin.

Always remember your greatest tool is to start with what you ALREADY have and build on that.  If you're outside, use what nature has provided to you, whether it be a tree branch, archway or overhang. Using lots of greenery and minimal flowers is one way to help keep costs down. Be open to new and imaginative  ideas whenever possible and the sky will be your limit!
