You’re all ready to get decked out in suits and ties, but maybe you want something to make your wedding party a little more original. How, you ask? The answer is in the accessories. We’ve found a bunch of cool stuff for you that will make your groomsmen look awesome.
Of course the wedding bands are the main rings of the event, but that doesn’t mean your groomsmen can’t have a little wedding bling too (don’t worry, nothing sparkly).
This ring is cool because it’s made from a reassembled bullet. Turning war into love, it’s a good idea. Also, part of the profit is donated to War Child UK, which supports and protects children in areas affected by war.
This ring is just too damn cool to not put on the list.
Cufflinks don’t have to be boring. In fact, they can be super fun and exciting. They’re a great way to throw a favorite movie or game reference into the mix.
If you don’t want to go the cool but random route, cufflinks can also serve as a nod to your awesome bachelor party (a much better reminder than a hangover).
Fun socks are a great way to add some color without it being too much. Even if it works with your color scheme, red blazers are probably going to be a no. But cool red patterned socks (tucked in neatly, of course) are a big hell yes!
STRIDELINE makes socks with different city themes (most in several colors each). If they have the city you’re getting married in, all the more reason to go for it!
Another color-adding option is a non-traditional belt.
If you’re having an outdoor wedding, sunglasses are more than a cool accessory, they’re a necessity. These also double as a great (actually practical) gift for your groomsmen.
Watches are also great accessories that double as groomsmen gifts. “Skeleton” or mechanical watches have a sort of vintage feel, but they’re still sleek and super-cool looking. Alternatively, if you want something a little more modern, minimalist watches are very in.
