Groomsmen and Suspenders

I kick started the week with some super adorable bowties by Sincerely Cornelius so what better time than now to find something else that would go so perfectly with them! I’m talking suspenders! If you’re keeping things kind of casual for your bridal party or having a laid back beach side wedding, the suspender and bowtie ensemble may be for you. Rather than wearing a traditional suit, why not keep things cool and a little preppy with suspenders.

I am totally smitten with the whole suspenders look on men. There’s just something about that old school, country, down-to-earth look that makes me swoon. Perhaps it’s because my mind automatically goes racing to Ryan Gosling in The Notebook – drool. Putting my celebrity crush aside, seriously, whether you match a printed bowtie or tie with plain coloured suspenders or vice versa, your boys will look absolutely handsome and dapper. The ladies will go gaga for sure! It’s also a super cute look on the little ring bearers too. My darling little ring bearer wore charcoal suspenders matched with a tiny peach bowtie. Cuteness galore I tell you!
