On your big day, the small details matter. When it comes to picking out the right socks for your groomsmen, we believe your best friends deserve the best socks. This article will first showcase five popular wedding sock ideas, followed with an in-depth guide on how to choose the right sock to meet the needs of you and your groomsmen. Let's dive in!
Traditionally, socks are one of the few areas of the groom and groomsmen’s attire where they are able to express their personality. For veterans, first responders and other patriotic grooms, American flag dress socks can be a great way to make a statement. These dress socks are proudly Made in USA, making them even more ideal for your patriotic groomsmen.
These particular groomsmen socks are recommended by renowned wedding planning website The Knot and have been worn by grooms and groomsmen in countless weddings. Depending upon your personal preferences, Boardroom Socks offers these wedding socks in both mid-calf and over the calf lengths.
If your wedding will be a formal affair, you can’t go wrong with black wedding socks. Black dress socks are the perfect complement to a tuxedo or dark suit; they will create a smooth transition from your trousers to your shoes that visually elongates your legs and makes you appear taller.
While mid-calf length dress socks are certainly an option, over the calf is the preferred length when it comes to dress socks for groomsmen. If solid black is too conservative for you, we also have a range of black patterned dress socks.
Another interesting idea is to coordinate the color of your groomsmen’s socks with the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses. This can neatly tie together the wedding party’s outfits while also making for some fun photos!
Your bride likely has several colors and color themes picked out for the big day; see if there is an interesting way to combine these with your wedding socks.
Is there a particular color that has special meaning to the two of you? Did the two of you meet in college? Your school color could be a great idea for the color of your wedding socks! Does your bride have a favorite color? If so, that might make the perfect color of sock for you and your groomsmen.
Beyond personal meaning, every color also has a traditional symbolic meaning. For example, the color purple is frequently associated with romance and is a very popular color for springtime weddings. Purple wedding socks also have the added benefit of looking fantastic with many of the darker colors traditionally found in men’s suits.
Is your wedding a casual outdoors event in the middle of summer? If so, no-show socks might be the perfect wedding sock for you and your groomsmen. At Boardroom Socks our no-show dress socks are knit with a lightweight merino wool which makes them soft and breathable.
Designed to be worn with loafers and dress shoes, these no-show socks will enable your groomsmen to sport the stylish “sockless” look without forgoing the comfort of socks. Given how much dancing will be going on, you certain don't want blisters and hotspots to keep your groomsmen off the dance floor!
