The Preppy Groom by Providence Classic - Option 3

The Preppy Groom-Option 3- By Providence Classica

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree and our preppy groom Andrew and I are practically branch siblings. I hail from New England and at my own wedding, took Rhode Island's prep-tastic nautical history to a new level of design obsession. A gorgeous Greenwich wedding in an historic Victorian house? Sign me up!

First of all, how pretty is the name Rosemary? Next to her beautiful and feminine dress, Andrew's got to look classic and put together. This outfit may seem a tad on the informal side, but the quality of each garment ensures an absolutely refined look. Case in point: Ralph Lauren blazer and white dress pants. Gucci horsebit loafers. Rolex Submariner watch. Ray Ban "Wayfarers" in tortoiseshell. Heck, in twenty years, Andrew's outfit will still be in preppy style.

A white shirt (I threw in the prepster's fave pale pink just for fun) with an olive green tie blends into the wedding colors, while cheeky but subtle cufflinks made to look like buttons keep the limelight on the handsome groom. And a fun, quirky reference to Greenwich's seaside locale in this masculine boutonniere (no flowers!) adds a bit of whimsy.* A look that is understated and classic - perfect for this elegant young couple's modest wedding.

Have a wonderful 4th of July! xoxo Abbey from Providence Classic

*I just realized 9tailors founder Sam and I chose the same boutonniere for Andrew. Great minds think alike!
