Stripes, skulls, and robots… on FEET! It's a sock-tastic journey

Becky and Aaron's groomsmen know how to rock robot-chic, which perfectly matched their robot-themed wedding. Grooms, groomsmen, and even entire wedding parties know that even the most formal event can get away with a little excitement in the sock department.

We decided to comb our archives to see how couples and groups dressed up their tootsies. What we found was no less than matchy-matchy, crazy neons, robots, colorful stripes, and even some skulls. And there is no lack of the ever-funny pant leg lift shot.

Lucy and Travis found these socks at a clown supply store. You can find similar colorful stripes here, or go even wilder with tie-dye or flames!

Darcy and Charles decided to bestow their chosen "besties" with socks from Sock Dreams and then left the rest of their outfits up to them. It's an awesomely stress-free alternative to everyone matching, but still gives them something special to tie them all together.

Laureline and Cédric's men of the wedding party not only matched their neon socks to each other, but to their laces too!

Up Your Kilt!

A sock roundup without kilt socks?! Never. Erin and Jeff's Scottish tartan and balloon animal wedding had no shortage of smexy kilts and the tall socks that belong with them.

Relaxing at Venice and Julian's reception with bros in funky socks? Don't mind if I do.

Needing Sock Garters

Tribesmaid Mackitten captioned this photo with "needing sock garters," which are definitely a nice-to-have when you're planning to keep those babies up through a night of dancing. Also: points for matching the tie!

We've seen Mathea and Luke's bouquets and colorful sock/vest combo before. These socks look like they could have come from a sock exchange.
