Groom & Groomsmen’s Attire for Teal Weddings

Teal Wedding Inspiration for Groom’s & Groomsmen’s Attire

Without doubt, teal is one of the most popular wedding colors. Out of the 200 wedding shades that we offer matching ties for, 14 fall into the teal category. David’s Bridal alone offers 4 different shades of teal, and J.Crew brings it to 5 different hues. Because teal is such a popular wedding hue, we recently worked with a few of our favorite designers to further expand our collection of teal & turquoise ties. Here are some tips to dress the groom and his men to compliment a teal themed wedding.

Certainly a necktie or bow tie complementing your color theme looks great, but are you just limited to these two clothing pieces? The short answer is absolutely not. Pocket squares complenting the ties are a good starting point to bring more color into the men’s outfits, but there are two more accessories that are actually even better suited: Socks & boutonnieres. When it comes to teal colored socks, choose some that are not too overpowering. Instead of solid teal socks, choose some that have just traces of this bold color in form of stripes, checks, argyle, etc. Teal colored flowers do not exist in nature, but florists can dye them to match your exact color. The most popular blossoms used for a teal-dyed boutonniere are hydrangeas and lilies. Besides using dyed flowers, also popular are the use of peacock feathers, silk flowers, or teal colored yarn used to wrap the stem of the boutonniere.
