Gents, it’s all about you this afternoon. Looking dapper and feeling great on your wedding day is so important for your confidence and to make the right impression. Whether you are hoping to be a relaxed groom, smart or on trend groom I have many different style ideas to help you find the right look.

First and foremost, what do you wear on a day to day basis? What do you think makes you look and feel great about yourself? You want to look like you on your wedding day and feel comfortable. Take a look below at some real life grooms each of whom had their own individual styles who looked super dashing.

 

Tweed

 

Tweed suits have been making a resurgence, with beautiful texture, pattern and a nod to the countryside many a stylish groom are opting for this fabric. An abundance of colours and styles are available on the high street and by bespoke tailors.

Bow Tie

 

The bow tie is bang on trend and looks really suave. You can go bold with pattern or colour, knitted or silk. You could make your own or buy fairly inexpensively to compliment your wedding day look.

Casual

 

If dressing up smart just isn’t you, then go for a more relaxed look. Shorts, open shirt, waistcoats or braces can all look fantastic. Or ditch the dress shoes for your favourite pair of converse, dessert boots or sandals.

Mismatched

 

Gone are the days of having to coordinate the boys, mismatching can look amazing. Think about having a different colour trouser and jacket combination, mix up the colour of your ties or let the guys choose their own outfits.
