When it comes to wedding attire, choosing the suit is the first point of call. But although the suit is important what really makes the difference are the accessories you decide to wear. With this being said, within todays article we’re going to look at what accessories men should wear with their wedding outfits.
One of the most important accessories a man could wear, choosing a good timepiece is crucial. Go for something classy sticking with your classic brown or black leather straps with a slightly oversized face.

Yes, you should always wear a tie to a wedding. The only exception would be if it was a summer wedding but typically a tie should always be worn. Go for something that shares the same dimensions as the lapels on your jacket, and also opt for a tie slimmer in width. You don’t really want to go over 6cm, but it’s down to personal preference.
Avoid shiny materials and avoid bold colours, keep it classic with a knitted tie or a wool tie in a simple colour way. Think navy, grey, or burgundy.
The Pocket Square
This is down to personal choice, but a pocket square is another good addition to an outfit. It adds a touch of individuality and can really add some colour or print to a pretty classic look.
Keep the folds simple such as the square fold or the puff fold and show just a small amount of detailing.
It doesn’t end there as jewellery is something you might want to consider adding too. You have the choice of adding cufflinks, bracelets, rings, necklaces and more. Don’t overdo it here though, just keep it simple and don’t wear too much jewellery.
