Accessories for groomsmen: should they match?

If you are getting married you've probably asked the question: "Should I get matching accessories for my groomsmen?" The answer is yes, but it's not as simple as that. In this article, I'll explain what groomsmen accessories are available and how they can help you create a cohesive look for your wedding party.

Does every groomsman need to wear the same accessories to the wedding?

The short answer is that it depends on the style of your wedding. If you're having a formal wedding, it's likely that all of your groomsmen will be wearing similar accessories (and even suits). However, if you're going for a more casual look and feel, you can get away with less uniformity among them.

If you want all of your groomsmen to wear the same type of clothing in order to create one cohesive look as a group, then matching accessories are definitely key. But if everyone is going for individual styles and looks—like jeans and t-shirts or khakis and button-downs—having matching accessories may not be necessary.


We've all seen the photos of the groomsmen and how they look together. You want them to look like a cohesive unit, but you also want each individual to stand out from everyone else in a way that doesn't feel forced or contrived. Cufflinks are an accessory that makes sense if you're wearing a suit, and are a great accessory to match amongst your groomsmen.

Should you get matching tie bars for your groomsmen?

Whether you're looking for a way to add a personal touch to your groomsmen's outfits or want an inexpensive gift that shows how much you appreciate them, tie bars are a great option. Tie bars look great when worn with a suit or tuxedo and can also be worn in place of the more traditional tie if you're feeling less formal.

Should you get matching pocket squares for your groomsmen?

Pocket squares are the perfect way to add a splash of color to your wedding look. Pocket hanks and squares can be worn in different ways, which means they can match many accessories including ties and bow ties or ties. You don't have to worry about matching your groomsmen's pocket squares exactly, as having different pockets squares can give the groomsmen their own touch of personal style or to differentiate the groom from the groomsmen.
