7 Outfit Options for the Groom

Posted on 09 May 2018

As the big day approaches, and with so much on your mind, one of the things occupying your mind is your outfit. After all, with so many different outfits you can wear, which one suits you best?


While it is impossible to look as good as the bride (after all, she is the queen on the wedding day), the groom also needs to look his best.


In order to choose the right outfit for your wedding, you need to consider the wedding venue as well as your own personality. If you're just a casual guy, you don't want to be all dressed up unless the wedding venue demands it.


So, here are the seven most popular groom outfits:




As one of the most formal groom outfits, this is perfect when you are having a traditional or classic wedding. So, if your wedding is taking place in a gallery or ballroom, this may be the right choice for you.


This outfit includes a black tie or bow tie, a black tuxedo or suit, black oxford shoes, a white dress shirt or tuxedo shirt, a white pocket square, and a boutonnière.


Black Tie Groom




Another popular groom outfit is the three piece suit. One of the best things about this outfit is that it is very versatile. Depending on the color that you choose it can be more or less formal. If you prefer to have a more formal wedding, then you should go for a darker color like black or dark blue. However, if you're having an outdoor wedding at the beach or at rustic venues, just go for light colors.


In addition, make sure to check the fabrics. If you're getting married during the fall, for example, you can choose some tweed or flannel suits.


For a more casual vibe, there's no problem in wearing a three piece suit made of textured fabrics with houndstooth and plaid patterns.

While suspenders don't please everyone, some grooms just love them. You can wear them at your wedding without any problems as long as you keep the belt out of your outfit.


The truth is that this groom outfit is timeless and it may be perfect if you want your wedding to be more casual and relaxed.


Bow tie and suspenders groom




For many years, hats were common for grooms and looks like they are coming back.


Hats are very versatile depending on the one that you choose. Whether Boater, Ivy, Bowler, or Fedora, the hat gives you a stylish look and you can perfectly match it with the wedding venue and your own style.


If you don't want to be the only one wearing a hat, just ask your groomsmen to wear hats as well.

Suit & Tie is one of the most versatile outfits that a groom can have. From the different colors of the suit and tie as well as patterns, there's a lot to choose from. Besides, this outfit is perfect to express your own personality. All you need to do is to wear the right accessories. Just think of the lapel pins and tie clips that can not only express your personality but also add some special detail to your outfit. You can also wear bold pocket squares and socks to further showcase your personality.

When you are planning a destination wedding or a wedding on the beach, the no tie outfit is definitely one of your best choices. All you need is a suit and a dress shirt, preferably in light tones.
This groom outfit is also perfect for grooms who don't like to wear a tie or bow. They will still look amazing even though it is less formal. If you want, you can still wear a cravat. Although it may be a bit unusual, it can work out well in the right circumstances.

Waistcoats never seem to go out of fashion. And when your wedding day arrives, no matter the season, it can be part of your outfit.

The truth is that you can wear this outfit in any season and at any venue. If you're up for a more formal wedding, you should also wear a jacket. However, if your wedding is in the spring or summer, you don't even need a jacket. You'll be a lot more comfortable and not hot at all. 



As you can see, the options are endless. Just make sure you consider the wedding venue, add your own personality to your outfit, and include your bride on your decisions. After all, this is the first day of the rest of your lives together.
