If we have one major regret about what we do and don’t cover here at Fly Away Bride, it would be that we don’t spend enough time on the boys. We have a bridal fashion feature almost every week, so today we’re going to work towards balancing the scales by concentrating solely on the guys. Velvet blazers are a trend we’ve seen creeping into popularity over the last few years and it’s one we’ve always admired. Definitely a great option for the guy who’s not afraid to stand out, but in an eclectic and tasteful way. We’ve gathered a few of our favourites here today.

Velvet is a great way for a groom to look sharp while still embracing his feminine side. It’s a material that also has that cool vintage vibe and photographs really well. We’re huge fans of the gunmetal smoking jacket style on the left below, and love to see a guy go all out and choose a bright colour like the purple, red or green! Below are some great groom options- just click on the image credit to find out where to source each.
