When future brides fantasize about their weddings, they often think of the flowers, the cake, and the dress but rarely do they consider one of our favorite wedding elements: Groom’s Fashion. In the wedding world, groom appearal is overlooked, epspecially in comparison to bride’s gown. What a tragedy! We believe your groom should look sharp, handsome, and totally put together paired with his beautiful bride. When thinking about groom’s apparel, there are so many elements to consider. Consider fabric choice–for example, velvet or tweed, linen or silk. Consider color! Will you go with a classic black or choose a color pop to enhance your wedding color palette? Consider pattern. Will your groom wear a patterned tie, suit, or socks to add in a bit of personality? And lastly, consider accessories. The perfect bowtie, monogram cufflinks, or even a heirloom pocket square will pull your man’s look all together. The perfect way to polish wedding is to have a well dressed man by your side. Consider these Groom’s Fashion tips for your upcoming wedding!
Here are a few of our favorite groom fashion moments from some of our Real Weddings.
We love how this groom added interest but pairing a mod velvet tie with his sharp, fitted suit! This look was perfect next to his glamorous, bohemian bride.
This groom opted for a classic, fitted black and navy tux complete with monogramed cufflinks. This look was the perfect fit for his black tie fête in France!
This groom chose both color and pattern to enhance the carefree, fun nature of their Coachella inspired wedding. He looked both dapper and fashion forward. We approve!
For this fall mountain ceremony, this groom paired classic white with a fall toned pant! We love the idea of mixing colors.
Color is not only reserved for bright, summery months! This groom chose an elegant burgundy tux for his chic, rocker winter wedding.
