Shirts for the Groom and Groomsmen

Today we are going to talk about grooms shirt.

Most grooms will choose a white shirt for their wedding day, but many are now opting for colour.

You need to consider when wearing a white shirt on the wedding day, whether it’s summer or winter, that nerves will make you perspire a lot and a white shirt will become see-through with sweat.

Shirts with patterns are a great option as marks don’t show on them.

If you wear a coloured shirt, it’s much worse.

If you want to see what I mean, grab a white shirt and flick a bit of water on it, then do the same to a coloured shirt and compare.

To minimise the problem – no matter what the shirt colour, have a second shirt with you on the wedding day.

Once you’ve got through the ceremony and the photo shoot, before entering the reception, you can go to the bathroom and put on a fresh new shirt that has no sweat patches.

If it’s a big crazy reception where everyone will be dancing a lot, I would suggest the groom has two shirts just for the reception. A big sweaty mark under the armpits does not make for memorable photos.

When you think about the amount of money that’s spent on a wedding, to have a couple of spare men’s shirts on hand is nothing in the scheme of things and it’s a great way of keeping the groom feeling fresh.

This can also go for the groomsmen, the father of the bride or groom or just men in general that are associated with the wedding.
