Cuff links have been an integral part of dress attire since the late 18th century when people wanted something nicer than ties for their shirt cuffs. Today, wedding cuff links are a sure sign of class when worn correctly and make for a perfect dose of sophistication on the big day. Because they come in so many designs, prices and colors, cuff links are an easy and playful way to add a dose of personality to your wedding day suit or attire.

To wear cuff links, you'll need to be rocking a shirt with cuffs that boast two button holes on each, rather than buttons or snaps—a quick google search for double-cuff or French-cuff shirts should do the trick. And, because you'll want those cool cuff links to get noticed, we recommend a white or light blue shirt for maximum contrast—really, just about any solid color or subtle stripe works. Beyond that, there are at least eight different types of cuff link closures, from the common toggle closure to ornate chain wraps.

If you're looking for a fun way to coordinate your cuff links with your wedding suit, you can match them to the details in your shirt, the color of your tie or tie clip or even to a pair of decorative socks.
