Mix and Match
Coordinating the wedding party outfits can be quite tricky with so many different tastes and body types to put into consideration, so it is no surprise that the style savvy are predicting that ‘mixing and matching’ will be on trend for 2015! For the girls it’s easy, mix and match colours, dress styles and lengths or even the accessories, but don’t forget the boys… why not mix the colour palette of their ties, cravats, bowties and pocket squares to match each bridesmaid dress? To then finish the look, add a pair of our screw down cufflinks and a tie pin containing matching fabric! If you have settled on a particular hue, why not consider a combination of ties, cravats and bowties in the same colour? Wedding dresses with structured necklines from the likes of Marchesa, Maggie Sottero and Pronovias have been spotted, so make sure the groom’s party’s collars are looking just as classy!
Cufflinks are not only practical to wear on the wedding day (and beyond), but they can also be a very personal and meaningful gift. For a gift that will hold a special place in his heart, coordinate cufflinks can be engraved with the location of your wedding venue, where you first met or a special place for you both. If you are the organised one, our playful ‘see you at,’ ‘date and time’ and ‘Mr & Mrs’ cufflinks are a great way of reminding him of when you will be walking up the aisle! Alternatively, blank canvas cufflinks are ideal if you have a different personal message you wish to engrave.
For those who say “a picture paints a thousand words,” silhouette cufflinks laser engraved with a personal profile of the happy couple or the wedding venue are a unique gift, with timeless charm.
“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe,” but what about ‘something silver’ for the groom? Sterling silver abstract swan cufflinks are perfect for understated elegance. If he’s your perfect match, sterling silver puzzle piece cufflinks are a quirky way of letting him know that he completes you. Alternatively, for a contemporary take on a wedding favourite, sterling silver rose cufflinks are a classy way to add a romantic touch to the groom’s outfit.
As you work down the ‘to do’ list leading up to your big day, don’t forget the impact that small details can make. Once the suits are sorted for the groom and the wedding party it’s time to think about those finishing touches. When buying or hiring shirts for the wedding day, they often have double of French cuffs which require cufflinks. The wedding party range cufflinks are perfect for those looking for simple yet luxurious, coordinated cufflinks for the gentlemen in their wedding party. Practical yet meaningful, these cufflinks double up as a perfect gift which will remind them of their role in your big day for many years to come. For those who would prefer to give cufflinks engraved with initials, names or dates, customisable engraved cufflinks are available in a variety of shapes and materials. Choose the text and font you require and see how the cufflinks would appear using our simple design online service.
Cufflinks aren’t the only finishing touch to consider for the groom and groom’s party if they have opted for the growing trend of wearing a tie, over a more traditional cravat or bowtie. Make sure they maintain a smart look throughout the day with a hammered tie slide, available in a range of colours and materials.
