Dressing the dudes: Accessorizing

So...we have the suit selected...but what ever shall we accompany it with?

I decided to begin with ties, and quickly realized that there are so freaking many to choose from! And then there is the question: do you buy the same tie for all of the groomsmen, or do we switch it up a little bit for each?


After some thought, I decided that I liked the idea of mixing and matching. As one of my idols, Stacy London, would say, “it doesn’t have to MATCH, it has to GO.” I decided to search for different ties, but in similar colors.

First stop? Where else...TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I'm predictable, what can I say? And boy, was I lucky! I stumbled upon a plethora of green and blue ties at both stores...for $9.99 a piece. I was able to snag a bunch in different patterns. I think they all go together really well, and I love that they aren't "matchy matchy" like they would have been if I had purchased the same tie for all of the dudes! So...what do you think?

How did you pick your ties out (for those of you who chose suits)?


  1. I love it!! We did something similar with all different green ties for our guys. It turned out really looking great and all the guys loved their ties.


I love reading your comments, please feel free to leave me one! Thanks! :)
