Kate Donachy

It's all in the details. They can make or break your wardrobe, so we're giving you some tips on how to polish your look for your wedding day as well as tips to look your best in photos.

Don't load your pockets. Keep your look clean and pants smooth and crisp.  Any object in your pocket will cause creases.

SHIRT CUFFS - Make sure your shirt cuffs come out 1/4" to 1/2" from the edge of your jacket/wrist.

ACCESSORIES - All metal accessories should match - wrist, watch, cufflinks, tie clip. Be sure to keep accessories simple with matching finishes and don't wear everyday jewelry or sporting gear.

LONG TIE - A long tie should hit top of waistband on your pants. A single or double-windsor knot works best formal with moderate spread for the shirt collar.

BOUTONNIERE - A fabric or metal lapel pin is best, as it won't droop or wear throughout the day.  If you do wear real flower or greenery, make sure it's small & simple, otherwise it can throw off the balance of your look if it's too big. LAPEL PIN - Be sure that if your pin includes metal, wood or other materials that it matches the rest of your accessories (cufflinks, watch, etc.)
