Groom Style: Finding The Perfect wedding Suit

When it comes to wedding style, there isn’t usually as much attention focused on the groom. Yes, we know, it’s all about the bride and how she looks (naturally), but we think a sharp looking groom is just as important. Think about it, a shabby looking guy next to a gorgeous bride? It’s actually a little rude not to make the same effort in our books!

Ireland may not have always been a place for metro looking guys in the past. This particular blogger comes from a place where a rope can be considered a belt and tattered jeans are appropriate ‘going-out clothes’. In case you’re wondering – it’s Kerry (and the tattered jeans can only be worn with ‘the good shoes’ on nights out. Anyway, this no longer the case for the majority of men in Ireland. There are actual places to find great formal wear, even in Kerry – just ask Paul Galvin (my personal style icon)!

Here are some places to find that wedding suit to make you feel amazing!
