What you wear on your special day is totally up to you. That said, cuff links are generally considered staple wedding accessories, especially if you're planning a more formal event. There are lots of great reasons to add a stylish or sentimental set of wedding cuff links to your attire. For starters, they can be a fun way to showcase your personality. Choose a set based on your interests, like mini metal baseballs or the motif of your favorite superhero. Wearing wedding cuff links can also be a nice opportunity to honor someone you love. Some soonlyweds may choose a pair passed down from their parents or grandparents as a sweet way to include them in the celebration.
