3. Bold socks
In this case, you can go for a colorful sock that matches your wedding colors, you can play with coordinating patterns, or you can go all out with various patterned socks to match the groomsmen’s personalities. For instance, maybe one of the groomsmen is known for his love of beer, so you get him a pair of socks with a beer mug print. Maybe another groomsman has a dog, so you get him a pair of socks with dogs on them.
You have a lot of options for how you implement this groomsmen accessory, but our best piece of advice would be to try and fit the socks within the parameters of your wedding (i.e. if you’re having a black-tie wedding, bright and bold socks might not be the best idea).

4. Sleek Sunglasses
Sunglasses at a wedding might not seem like an obvious accessory to choose, but that’s why we’re focusing on unique accessories today. We want to help you choose accessories that your peers might not think of.
Sunglasses, in particular, are great for summer weddings, especially if you plan on having a lot of outdoor photography.
