5 Options for Groom’s Wedding Attire
When your groom’s wedding attire pops into your mind, you probably automatically think of a tuxedo or suit. However, the wedding rules and traditions are ever-changing, and there are, in fact, other options for your future hubs! A tuxedo is great if you’re having a black-tie affair, but weddings are becoming much more casual and less traditional these days, which is perfect for these new options for groom’s attire.
Again, this traditional option is perfect for a black-tie wedding! There are a couple of things you want to keep in mind about tuxedos, though. Typically, grooms will only wear a tux for an evening wedding, after 6 pm. Also, be sure to include the dress code (black-tie) on the invitation, so your guests are not underdressed compared to your man! When selecting a tux, you will have the option of renting or buying. You’ll also be able to choose what color tux you’d like. We love a white tuxedo with a black lapel – swoon!
The next option is another popular choice. Suits can be dressed up or down, and mix and matched. You can choose a black suit for a fancier affair or a trendy blue suit for an outdoor or more laid-back wedding. Have your future hubby decide if he wants to wear a bow-tie or regular tie, and match it to your bouquet! Patterned ties are in, and we are loving the trend – especially floral patterns! Another trend we’re diggin’? The groom in a hunter green suit – allllll the heart eyes!
This next option is definitely meant for more casual weddings. Have your groom wear a 3 piece suit, with or without the jacket. The jacket will dress it up, but the vest without the jacket makes a totally different type of statement. Pair it with a classic white shirt underneath, or mix it up with a patterned shirt. Again, you can dress it up with a dark color and bow tie, and dress it down with lighter colors and a fun tie. We love this option for grooms; it’s different, stylish, and more comfortable.
Who doesn’t love a man in suspenders?! Better yet, what bride doesn’t love her groom in suspenders?! We love the classic look of a white button-up, suspenders, and camel-colored accents.. Have him roll up his sleeves and you’ll be ready to get the honeymoon started before the wedding’s over! Okay, we’ll calm down. But seriously, this is such a great look, especially for those grooms who hate wearing tuxes or suits and just want to be comfortable.
Last but not least, you could have your groom pick out a jacket, and pair it with his favorite dress pants. The options are endless – you could keep it classic and simple or pick out a funky, trendy jacket. We love velvet jackets (especially for winter weddings!) and fun patterned jackets. We definitely recommend mismatched items that contrast each other well. For example, a black and white gingham button-down paired with a tan tweed jacket. Don’t be afraid to play around with different colors and textures!
Which option will you choose for your groom?? Is he a classic tuxedo and suit kind of guy, or a more laid back no-jacket guy? Head on over to our facebook page to let us know!
