Here at Wedding Party, we love to do everything we can to help out the bride on her big day. But what about the groom? We often forget that it’s just as much his day as it is her day. After all, a wedding is about joining two people together as a couple. So we’re going to discuss groomsmen attire.
- Black-tie formal: Guys in tuxes. Buy it or rent one, get it fitted, and you’re good to go.
- Formal: Black or a dark neutral-colored suit. Use your accessories to give your suit a good pop of color! This would best apply to city weddings.
- Semi-formal: Suits made out of more casual materials. You can also branch out in terms of colors as well. This would best apply to beach weddings, summer weddings, country weddings, or other weddings of a similar nature.
- Casual: Nice slacks, long-sleeved shirt, tie, jacket optional (although highly suggested. Plus, you can always take it off later in the evening). No jeans. Period.
When attending a wedding, keep in mind that it’s better to be overdressed (only slightly though. Don’t show up in a tux to a semi-formal wedding!) than under-dressed. If you want to dress down during the wedding, you can take off your jacket if need be. Additionally, suits can be rented if you don’t want to break the bank on a suit in an obscure color — you might sacrifice on fit, but you can usually find a close enough double and at a fraction of the cost.
Now, here are some up and coming suit trends for the groom to be that bring a modern day twist to the classic tuxedo.
Just as pink is the new white for brides, grey is the new black for grooms. Lately, there has been an increase in tan or beige suits for summer weddings, and grey suits for fall or winter weddings. Another popular trend is to incorporate an accent color from the bridal party into the groomsmen’s attire.
Suspenders are the perfect way to add a funky and modern, yet subtle, twist to any groom’s outfit. Also a great option for groomsmen and ring bearers!
