Pimp your ushers

In groomsmen, ushers on September 4, 2009 at 11:40 am

The usher uniform can be terribly dull. Unless of course you do this…

Add braces (or suspenders, if you’re American).

Pimp your ushers with braces and monochromatic ties.

Mix up smart and casual

Black suits. Black converse. Its a beautiful thing.

Add a colourful twist. A bright handkerchief or maybe striped socks.

Go totally casual. But matching. So it’s like everyone’s just rolled out of bed and happened to fling on exactly the same thing.

Add random props. Like Stormtroopers masks. Why? Just because.

Page boy outfits your bank manager will die for

I’ve never known a pageboy to be disappointed in the quality of his shirt, or frown at the way the pleating falls on his chinos. Mainly they’ll be rolling in cake on the lawn. Best not to spend a fortune then… Here’s some ideas:

1. Fancy dress page boy. More people should do this. Really. It is better for the world. Small pageboy, dressed as a monkey or dinosaur, bish bash bosh, everyone’s happy. Do it, do it, do it.

2. High street pageboy. The high street is full of cute pageboy outfits which you can put together yourself. There’s absolutely no need to go to a bridal shop. Indeed it’s madness until you’ve checked out the likes of Next, Debenhams, BHS and Marks & Spencer.

3. Casual page boy. Little boys trussed up in grown up suits have a habit of looking uncomfortable. How about a more beachy look – with a short sleeved summer shirt and long shorts.
