Have you ever seen a wedding photo with several guys and thought...which one is the groom?? 

It is estimated that every year, over 40 million weddings take place globally. Crazy when you think about it because that’s about 115,000 weddings every single day! Your wedding day is arguably the most important day of your life--a day to celebrate love and commitment, a day to woo everyone with luxurious decor, floral arrangements and fashion. While brides have endless possibilities and combinations of fabrics, lengths, styles, colors and accents for their special day, their counterparts have, well...suits and oh, and silk ties! 

A good number of people getting married are grooms; grooms are just as important as brides. Although suits are offered in different colors and fits, for the most part, they are the same, just like the usual silk or floral ties.Your wedding day is not an ordinary day, so why dress like it? 

Sticking to traditional looks is cool for your coworker’s big day, but not yours. 

Although it may seem like knit, silk, velvet and polka dot ties exist for weddings, grooms do have more options. There is a whole world of wedding fashion out there that you know nothing about. Yet.
