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 they days of double breasted black jackets, cutaway coats or mandarin collars, today’s groom is modern and sophisticated, leaning towards colour 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 colour 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 colours 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 colour’ colour 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.
