Ok, Grooms, let’s talk about you! So often the emphasis on the wedding can be placed on the bride, but we know, that this is the groom’s day too and as a team, you and your partner want to make this the best day ever! So, let’s look at some non-traditional groom attire ideas for your wedding!
Your wedding day is the start of a new chapter of your lives as man and wife, and everyone wants to look good doing it. Gone are the days of double-breasted black jackets, cutaway coats or mandarin collars, today’s groom is modern and sophisticated, leaning towards color and sleek design lines.
– The boys in Blue –
Let’s start with a very popular and fashionable suit trend at the moment. Blue suits. Blue has such a range of shades that it can fit in with most bridal color schemes. Starting from a deep navy – Like the classic BEN SHERMAN suit or those from MENS SUIT WAREHOUSE, to a brighter royal blue like these from JUST FOR HIM, you can see they excite the bridal party and the colors pop in your wedding images.
Moving up a shade or two, check out JOE BUTTON. They present a steely muted blue which is perfect if you wish to blend a bit more, or even this powdery blue from BRIGGINS will compliment any bride. Waistcoats are still a classic addition if you want them but as we can see, bow ties are absolutely still on the scene, especially if it is hand tied.
– Strong as steel –
Muting the blues more and going for a steel look will bring you to a gorgeous grey. Grey is not entirely a ‘no color’ color as it has components of… you guessed it, blue, which is why these two go so well together. CONNOR has their light grey suits with a waistcoat and long tie, but YD AUSTRALIA gives it a more casual feel, tight fit, slim cut, almost 60’s look.
If you are itching to stay away from black and say to your family and friends that your groom is a modern man and not afraid to show it, get him to step into some blue or grey and see everyone’s eyes light up at the sight of you both.
