Groom Style #22: Singapore Slingers

Dress Inspiration? Vera Wang Silk & Organdy Gown


Dress: Vera Wang; Shoes via Browns Fashion

Last week, I received an e-mail from a beautiful bride, Anyta, creator of The Artsy Bride blog. When I found out that she was wearing a dress similar to one above, I almost clapped with excitement! I absolutely adore all the feminine ruffles and organdy layers (*sigh). Her ceremony will take place in a Catholic Church. Then, the happily married couple will celebrate with their guests at an evening BBQ. The best part? Everything is taking place in Singapore! This is the perfect backdrop to their brown, orange and turquoise wedding. So gorgeous. Here's what I came up with for her athletic groom.

Singapore Sling

Suit pants and jacket: John Lewis; Tie: Hickey; Watch: Burton; Pocket Square: Hermes via Uncrate; Belt: Ted Baker; Shoes: John Lewis

Anyta's groom, Gurmit, prefers khaki in lightweight fabrics, so I selected a mocha colored suit in a silk-linen blend. Not only will this keep Gurmit looking stylish, but also cool in Singapore's tropical heat. Since their morning ceremony will take place in a more traditional environment, I would include a tie and boutonniere in orange, beige and turquoise. The square face of the gunmetal-colored watch keeps the suit from looking too traditional. At the ceremony, Gurmit can shed the tie and boutonniere. Instead, he should pick up the most amazing zebra print Hermes pocket square. I can't believe that I found it in Anyta's wedding colors! Lastly, Gurmit can wear a pair of handmade calf-leather shoes, which pulls the entire look together.
