T3ME Style Tips: Wedding Bound

May 30, 2014

Summer isn’t just known to be the season of fun and vacations; we all know that it’s also the start of the season packed with memorable times of long-term planning for making that once-in-a-lifetime event as special as could be. Yes, we’re talking about weddings. Whether you’re the groom, best man, or a close guest, you should still be able to wow the crowd with your elegance and finesse.

The Groom

Armani Exchange SS14

Getting cold feet? Or perhaps just stressed with getting ready for the big day? No need to. After all, you have the honeymoon coming after. So T3ME thought it’s better to give you some options from Armani Exchange’s SS14 collection. It’s the time to relax and since it’ll probably also be summer at your honeymoon destination, these looks range from going to islands and sipping on rose beachside to enjoying the ruins of an ancient city. The candle-lit feasts followed by some partying are most probably on the agenda as well, right? Choose your looks and take a load off your back to enjoy the special month.

The Best Man

Gucci Interlocking “G” Leather Loafers

You got the honor of standing by the man of the hour…  or should we say, ‘man of the day.’ So, it’s only appropriate that you dress the part. This is not to say that the limelight is to be taken from the groom, but you should try to keep up. You want to be comfortable while standing and listening to the vows and also when you hit the dance floor at the reception. That calls for the right dress shoes and since sometimes the expression “fashion comes before comfort” is applicable, it doesn’t always have to be the case. These sleek black dress shoes from… not only match any suit, they have a complete leather upper and square toe along with a rubber sole. Start practicing your Michael Jackson moves.

The Guest

Piaget Polo FortyFive

It’s all in the watch. We’ve been raving about smartwatches for a while, but the classics are still in, regardless. Piaget knows how to add that refined touch to a wardrobe that’s fit for occasions like a paparazzi-packed gala dinner to a more relaxed picnic afternoon in the park. If you’re more focused on that wedding dinner and witnessing one of your friend’s most important life moments, opt for Piaget’s Polo FortyFive watch which basks in a titanium case and 18K rose-gold gadroons. Even the dial’s hourmarkers are in 18K rose-gold and the case back is sapphire crystal. Make sure not to keep checking the time every five minutes during the matrimonial ceremony.
