Modern Groom Fashion


I recently was asked to blog about modern trends in Groom’s wedding attire. (Thanks for these suggestions, keep them coming!)

I have to admit that I am as guilty as the next girl of not paying a lot of attention to what the Groom and groomsmen wear at a wedding. For me, it’s all about the dress. ;)

But that being said, Grooms are now starting to add more of their own personality into their wedding day attire. So stand up and take notice everyone, the boys are out in full fashion force!

One of my favorite looks on guys is the waistcoat. This can be both casual or formal, depending on the material, cut and fit.  Here are a few fabulous examples of how to incorporate a waistcoat into your wedding attire:

Another fashion item that is undergoing a “coolness injection” right now is the bowtie. Now I’m not talking about your typical “goes-with-my-tuxedo” bowtie. These modern bowties are thinner and come in a variety of new and cool fabrics and patterns:

Another one of my favorite guys accessories are cufflinks. These are a wonderful and subtle way for a Groom or groomsmen to express their personality on the big day:

Or add your initials and wedding date:

Or how about adding a patterned shirt:

Whether your wedding is casual, formal, or semi-formal, there are plenty of ways for you men to get in on the fashion action!
