From intern Amy:
We’ve all seen mixed and matched bridesmaids’ dresses before (if not, check out my previous post on outfitting bridesmaids!). But have you seen mixed and matched groomsmen? I came across this trend while doing a little research one day, and I absolutely fell in love! I don’t know why it never occurred to me before that you could do this, but now I am totally on board. I know that there is a time and a place for this specific kind of look, but if you are at that time and place why not give it a go? If you feel it’s too risky to mix and match vests, suspenders, and/or jackets, perhaps you can go with something subtler, like giving each gentleman a different tie or bowtie. Or you can even mismatch their socks for a more clandestine look.
For those who want to attempt this trend (or even for those just looking for groomsmen gifts), check out two of my favorite shops for some sweet, affordable accessories:
