Quick-Fix Tips For the Groom's Clothing

Some people assume that it is easy for the groom to get ready on the wedding day - they just throw on a suit and they're done. Well, sometimes this is the case, but on occasion, they can have "wardrobe malfunctions" too. Angelus Bridal has put together a list of a few problems that the men in the wedding may run into, plus some helpful ideas on how to fix them.

Wrong Size
If you have ordered your tuxedo or suit for the wedding, you most likely will not see it until right before the wedding day. If a measurement was written down wrong or there was a mistake in shipping, it may not fit as well as you would like. In that case, if the other men in your wedding party are wearing similar clothing, trade with one of them if it's a better fit. It's much more important that the groom looks his best. The groomsmen should have your back on this. 

If the shirt collar is too tight, you can loop a rubber band through the buttonhole and attach that around the button. This can then be easily hidden with a carefully placed necktie. Should you end up with pants that are a bit snug, safety pins can be looped together and used to fasten the pants, and then you can cover this unique rigging with the cummerbund. 

Ripped Seam
Hopefully the bride or wedding planner has a well-stocked wedding day emergency kit on hand and someone can quickly sew you back up. If not, or there's simply not enough time to sew it, you may be able to turn the garment inside-out, hold it together at the seam, and use safety pins to tightly fasten it back together. As a last resort, a stapler or duct tape will work too, but be extra careful when removing those after the wedding so as not to damage the fabric. 

Sweat Stains
There's a good chance your nerves may be acting up on a day as important as this special occasion. If you sweat excessively when you are nervous, or if you are getting married on an extremely hot day, you will want to take precautions to avoid this showing through your wardrobe. 

An undershirt will absorb perspiration before it can reach the outer layer of clothing, and this can be changed between the ceremony and reception if needed. You can also shop for underarm garment shields to place under your armpit and absorb any extra perspiration. You may also want to bring along an extra button-down shirt to change into before the reception begins.      

No Boutonniere
This will work for any of the men that are supposed to wear a boutonniere on the wedding day. If the florist doesn't deliver enough, pluck a few flowers from a centerpiece or bridesmaid's bouquet to use. Gather them together with string or tape, and creatively pin it so that the fastener doesn't show. It is very likely that no one will notice a difference.
