Wedding Day Style Guide

By Aquila

Choosing the right pair of shoes for your Groomsmen is essential for a cohesive and sophisticated groomsman party. It’s important to ensure the dress shoe style chosen for your groomsmen not only matches their suit but also complements the Grooms’ footwear.

Find The Perfect Style

From sleek patent derby shoes and cap toe oxfords shoes to classic leather monk straps, our range of formal men’s wedding shoes will have your Groomsmen looking and feeling the part no matter the suit colour – be it black, navy blue, or light grey. While a stylish pair of shoes is vital, choosing a versatile style to suit everyone dress shoe will have your Groomsmen feeling confident whether they’re mingling with guests, or dancing the night away at the reception.

A patent shoe is always a winner with a tuxedo.

Let Your Style Do The Talking

The type of wedding shoes you choose for your big day is largely dictated by both your personal style and whether you are enjoying a formal wedding or more relaxed event. The must-have shoes for grooms looking to complement their tuxedo are oxfords which offer timeless design with a nod to tradition. Choose between plain toe, capped toe, or oxfords with brogue detailing. For the traditional groom, a pair of black patent leather oxfords or brogues is the ideal choice. For grooms looking to inject their own style or flair into their wedding day attire, textured or genuine leather loafers and cap toe double monk strap shoes are a sophisticated yet stylish choice.

Traditional vs A More Casual Affair

Look sharp in a navy suit and dark brown leather dress shoes - a trendy yet timeless alternative to classic black, and contrast with a crisp white shirt and a black bowtie for a polished look. For a more casual feel, ditch the tie and wear your navy dress pants with an unbuttoned light-coloured blazer – a popular style for beach weddings and more rustic venues.

Finishing Touches

More low-key affairs give grooms the freedom to experiment with different colour and textures, so don’t be afraid to try something other than classic black leather dress shoes. For a touch of personality, pair your wedding shoes with some playful patterned socks. Tip – gifting your groomsmen a pair of patterned socks will provide a finishing touch to the groomsman-party and is a practical thank-you gift!
