There’s no denying that a black tux is a dapper look, but we always love a fresh shake-up in a groom’s wardrobe. While the black tux is a classic, donning an alternative groom-look on the wedding day is a bold move—one that we appreciate.
If you’re looking to add a little personal style to your groom’s wedding day attire, look no further. We’ve rounded up some of the most stylish grooms for a bit of inspiration for your soon-to-be hubby. If he wants something a little different, but still wants to play it safe, consider a suit in neutral, beige, or brown tones, mixed separates in blue hues, or a tux in shades of gray. Want to add a subtle punch? Step up the game by opting for an ensemble that plays with textures or prints—or both! Think a suit made of wool or velvet, a floral pocket square or tie, a checkered button-down shirt. If he’s daring enough, he can amp it up by throwing on a patterned jacket, such as plaids or stripes. But if he really wants to stand out, a colored suit in a vivid jewel tone or popping pastel will always do the trick.
And if your wedding style calls for it, he doesn’t have to stick to formal wear either. Forget the coat altogether—a vest or suspenders look just as good. Or mix tops and bottoms to achieve a semi-casual balance—think slacks with a chambray shirt. Because as much as your groom should look good, he should also be comfortable. Don’t forget to add a little flair to personalize the look, such as a Western-inspired brooch for a boho style or top hat for an art deco vibe.
