Style Inspiration for Grooms and Groomsmen

If you have found yourself on this page, it probably means that you or someone you know is getting married – Congratulations! Whether you’re a groom or a groomsman floundering for fashion ideas, look no further. While weddings may seem to hold the most focus around a bride and her dress, there is no reason for the groom and his band of groomsmen to not to step out in style as well. Below are a few ideas for you and your best men to elevate your look on your wedding day. 

Picking a Suit with Personality 

No matter what style the wedding is, you simply cannot go wrong with a characteristic three-piece suit. They are classy, timeless and always look on point. Plus, with a three piece, you have the added benefit of being able to take off your jacket and still look like the man of the hour. The vest underneath keeps you looking sharp while giving you more mobility and breathability. 

You do have the option to go jacketless from the beginning if you think that suits your style. However, this look is typically reserved for warm weather, vintage themed weddings, or smaller, more casual gatherings. 

Whatever you decide, you want to make sure your wedding attire fits perfectly. A made-to-measure suit is a cut above and will have you looking and feeling your absolute best.

Colours and Patterns: The Options Are Limitless

In recent years we’ve seen grooms expressing themselves more when it comes to their wedding outfits and opting for colours outside of the standard blue, black, and grey. Why not consider branching out into a different colour or pattern such as maroon or even beige. Muted and elegant patterns can include chalk stripes, herringbone, madras and glen check, all of which can make a statement without causing distraction. 

If you do prefer a block colour suit, experiment with patterned or colour dress shirts! As long as they aren’t gaudy, a subtle design or colour change can really up your game. 

Ties, Boutonnieres, Socks and Accessories 

While the tie often coordinates with the colour palette, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t need thought. Depending on what you’ve chosen for your suit and dress shirt, consider patterned or textured neckwear. Additionally, we’ve seen grooms wearing traditional ties, bowties, bolo ties, or no tie at all. It all depends on your personal taste and the look you’re going for.

Boutonnieres are classic, but not necessary. If you do decide to rock one, just know that they don’t always have to be florals. Leafy greens or clusters of berries are a great alternative, which is sleeker and more modern.

If you’re looking for an understated way to sneak some personality into your outfit, socks are surely the way. As they will be invisible for the most part, this is a great opportunity for the grooms and groomsmen to break the mold a bit. We’ve seen everything from polka dots to superheroes decorating ankles.

Lastly, don’t be afraid to accessorise. Have you always loved suspenders? Do you think you really rock a hat? This is your time to shine! Don’t forget about watches and cufflinks, either. There are so many ways to show your personality when accessorising your wedding attire.

Here at Greylan, we want to inspire gentlemen to put the same amount of effort into their wedding day as their partner will. From initial design to creation, we work closely with you to tailor make a perfectly fitted wedding outfit for you and your groomsmen.
