8 Great Ideas for Groomsmen Accessories


The guys you pick to be your groomsmen play a special role in your wedding day, so of course, you want them to look their absolute best while up at the altar with you. In addition to choosing the right suit or tux for them, it’s important to accessorize their look to make sure they stand out in the best way. Here are a few tips to help pick the right accents for your groomsmen.


Groomsmen with Groom in Pink Ties

Select The Right Tie 

Whether it’s a dramatic color, pretty paisley, or an off-beat pattern, the tie your groomsmen wear can definitely make a statement on your wedding day. You also may want to set yourself apart by choosing a different style from your groomsmen. For example, they can all wear a necktie while you show off a bowtie on the big day.

Add a Tie Bar

A tie bar or tie clip can bring the groomsmen’s look to another level. Reminder: The tie clip should be between the 3rd and 4th buttons in your shirt or at the same height as the chest jacket pocket.

Get Playful With Pocket Squares. 

A pocket square is a hint of fabric peeking out of a suit or tux’s breast pocket. A bright color or whimsical design can add a pop to their look without being overly distracting. Bonus Tip: Make sure the pocket square is made from a material different than the jacket.

Bride and Groom in Boutonnieres

Be Bold with Boutonnieres

The bride and bridesmaids shouldn’t be the only ones with beautiful flowers on the wedding day. Pick out a bloom for the groomsmen that compliments the bridesmaids’ bouquet, but make sure that it differs from the groom’s boutonniere to set him apart from the rest of the guys.

Go With a Lapel Pin

Also known as an enamel pin, a lapel pin comes in a variety of materials and designs. For weddings, they can take the place of a floral boutonniere. Generation Tux has hand-cut petal-shaped lapel pins available in a variety of colors.

Choose Some Cufflinks 

Whether you choose gold or silver, cufflinks can add some shine to the groomsmen’s look. You can gift them with a personalized pair of cufflinks as their groomsmen gift or take a look at our selection of accessories.

Gift Them With Special Socks

Socks are no longer an afterthought when putting together a wedding day look. Many bridal parties are donning socks in bold colors, fun patterns or even with meaningful sayings or images. Choose a pair for all of your guys and give it to them as part of their groomsmen gifts.
