Amidst all that hustle, bustle and excitement, you forgot that one minor but important thing. Shoes.
CustomMade has been helping grooms get that perfect men formal shoe for their big day in Singapore so...
Fear not, this guide will help you find the right wedding shoe for grooms and leave you more time to handle the more important matters of the wedding.
When it comes to wedding shoes for grooms, there are three main factors to consider:
Formal or Smart Casual
Colors of the shoe
Formal Or Smart Casual Men Shoes
Your shoe choice should be dictated by how formal or casual your wedding event is.
If your wedding is more formal, a classic black wholecut or oxfords would suit best with a tuxedo or suit (depending on color)
A rule of thumb will be that the less elaborate the shoe, the more formal it is.
PRO-TIP: a black wholecut (second shoe on the left)is a very classy and elegant shoe that is meant for formal events and goes perfect with suits and tuxedo.
Examples of classic formal Men shoes
If your wedding is a less formal ceremony, you can relax on the color and style.
For colors, depending on the suit, you can go brown, dark tan or even red.
For shoe style, you can try out the more 'trendy' monk straps and brogues/medallion toe for your shoes.
PRO-TIP: Adding a patina finish(darken edges fading to the leather color)will add more style to your shoes.
Examples of more stylish Men shoes
Colors of Groom's Wedding Men Shoes
When it comes to shoe colors for the groom, it is largely dependent on the color of the suit and also the formality of the ceremony.
Black is considered the most formal of colors and traditionally, any other than black is considered casual.
A general rule of thumb will be that the darker the color, the more formal.
Examples of colored dress Men shoes
If you are planning on dancing at your wedding, you may want to pay particular attention to your shoes, especially the soles.
Look for soles that can handle moving your feet and sliding across the floor without being too sticky or sleek.
A treaded rubber sole will make it hard to move and slide across the floor.
Look for shoes with smooth leather soles or soft rubber soles without threading.
