Wearing Black Is Elegant But Don’t Exaggerate
The bridal view we all expect to see is the white dress, but not the same thing will be for the groom; just in isolated cases. What he should wear is a matter of taste, usually a costume, black, and so the contrast made along with the bride is an accent created for both of them.
But what if this color touch is exaggerated and the groom will appear at his wedding wearing back from head to toe? I mean tie, shoes, shirt, everything. It will inspire a morbid touch, don’t you think? Again a matter of taste but in some cases it is the reasonable choice.
When someone member of the family dies the mourning period is about a year. Religious dogmas and old beliefs consider this time a necessary recovery, healing time for the sadness of such unhappy event. So no parties, no night life style, wearing black are just a few of “rules”. Hence once planned a wedding cannot be so easily postponed. There’s got to be a way so as a sign of respect and still following the mourning period groom all in black is yet a defined possible situation.
But on the other way, esthetically speaking now there should be at least one piece of his attire with a vivid color. For example the tie to be of a gold or whatever color. One of the reasons stands as a high level formality. Maybe you don’t want this in the strictest way. Also, the groom all in black will make no distinguished style of the shirt and sac suit, of the design of his costume.
But no one should judge too harsh such a decision as at your turn you may not be a good, inspired presence on regards of your outfit.
