Add Some Patterns

 

Adding a pattern to the groom’s summer wedding look, like a checked shirt, instantly adds some interest (and personal style). Choosing a navy blue color instead of the typical black or gray lends a laid-back but dressed-up feel to his look — just right for a casual, warm-weather wedding.
