Today we are going to talk about Wedding suspenders. Suspenders look great at weddings. There is no better way to dress up the groom and the groomsmen. Suspenders really make a statement and let everyone know that this is a special occasion.

So what are wedding suspenders? Well, there are not really specific suspenders that are only wedding suspenders. Actually, you can wear just about any suspenders at a wedding.

In this video we will give you some basic tips on how to choose the ones that are best for you, AND show you some examples.

The first thing you want to decide is how fancy or dressy you want to be. On the one end of the price scale we have exotic materials like Silk, Grosgrain, Oxford and other cloths, which can cost between $50 and $100 each. They are beautiful and distinctive. On the other hand, you can make a wedding party look great for between $10 and $15 a suspender for most colors and many patterns.

An early choice you will want to make is whether you want button or clip suspenders. If you go with buttons suspenders, also called braces, you will need to have pants with buttons on them for the suspenders to attach to. If there are no buttons they would need to be sewed on. Don't worry, we have the widest selection of both clip and buttons suspenders to choose from.

Once you decide which direction to go there, you will want to decide how wide you want the suspenders to be. Be careful not to get order the 2 inch wide.

Once you have the type of suspender and the width figured out, then of course you want to choose your color. I am proud to say that SS has a huge variety of colors available in most styles. One warning on colors. We deal with weddings all the time. We LOVE weddings, and we work hard to help the bride and groom get exactly what they need. But sometimes it is difficult to get an exact match on colors with suits or bridesmaid dresses. Think about it, what are the odds that two materials, made by different manufacturers, will match exactly or close enough to be acceptable. Some times it does work, but sometimes it doesn't.

So sometimes, instead of trying to match colors, it is often much easier to find a good complementary color. That way the suspenders become an accent color. So instead of trying to match a grey (50 shades), go with black, or another dark color that works with the other outfits. Instead of Tan, go for brown.

Another great touch for a wedding outfit are bow ties. They look great, are special and different. Definitely dress-up. We carry dozens of colors that we have pre-selected to match our suspenders perfectly, so you can get the matched set from us without having to shop all over. Or mix and match colors to get cool combinations!
