Grooms and Groomsmen: Hot Wedding Wear Trends


Let's take note of some grooms and groomsmen attire trends that we're really loving. First - in the photo above and just directly below - I'm loving the color burst in the shirt, the polka-dot handkerchief square, the colorful bow tie, mad-patterned socks, and slender-cut contemporary suit. Click on each photo to see more images from these weddings.

Look at the next two sets of photos (see below), and you'll see the bow tie trend continue, topped off with suspenders, a Gatsby-like white ensemble, and black suspenders with natty black casual shoes.

    Wedding is a social event, a grand ceremony in which two people are united in marriage. Wedding traditions and customs vary greatly between cultures, ethnic groups, religions, countries, and social classes. It may range from a simple form of event to extravagant ones.

    Great article!
    A lot of the groomsmen should read it really carefully! I work with weddings and some outfits I'm seeing out there are just horrendous!
    If you are thinking about a wedding abroad chose Algarve, Portugal -
    Cheers :)

    I think that every groomsman should have the option to chose their own wedding attire. Most of the time their suit is chose by the bride. I Think its time to change this. What do you think guys??

    Great article! Groom outfit seems to be more difficult than bride. I love the first groom! He's handsome in that outfit. I find a similar items here

    Maxi dresses make the perfect <a href="">wedding-dress</a> primarily because of their sophisticated appearance, which flatters a range of women's body shapes. However, the wide range of prints and patterns that maxi dresses are now available in also means that women of all personalities are able to find one to suit them. For example, if you're a fun individual who likes to wear bright colors and prints, choose a maxi dress with a bright flowery pattern to make a distinct impression at a day-time wedding |

    I love the snappier look for groomsmen! What would you suggest for larger groomsmen? Too often, larger men end up looking like they are swimming in their attire. Thoughts? I appreciate the feedback!
