Let’s face it, on your wedding day people will mostly talk about your future wife’s wedding gown. But that shouldn’t be the reason not to look as handsome and stylish as your partner. Go through these tips and tricks to find fashion inspiration for your big day and choose the best groom attire!

Consider the dress code

The first rule you should stick with is to wear a suit or tux that fit the formality of the ceremony. Your attire should be appropriate for the venue and should match the dress code you’ve chosen. If you are organizing a more casual/outdoor/daytime wedding, you can match your attire to the causality of the ceremony – you can wear light colored suits, with some chic details in bright pinks or pastel orange, mint green, etc.

On the other hand, if your wedding is a very formal, evening ceremony, opt for a dark suit or classic black tuxedo. A more formal option if you want a strict dress code on your wedding is a black tailcoat with a white shirt and black or white tie, it’s the ultimate formal wear perfect for luxurious venues and very formal ceremonies.

Coordinate your attire with your future wife’s gown

You can focus on coordinating your attire with your future wife’s wedding gown. If you want something more traditional for your wedding and she wants to wear a classic white wedding dress, you should adapt your attire to be sure that your styles go well together. If she wants to wear a ball gown, you shouldn’t choose a light linen suit because it will look ridiculous. Instead, opt for a classic tuxedo and you two will look awesome together.

Men’s tailored suits in darker colors go well with vintage lace gowns, slim-cut grayish suits go perfectly with city-chic gowns, whereas a beach wedding requires something more casual, like a lightweight linen suit in light shades in combination with her minimalistic spaghetti, strap ivory wedding dress. So the point is to talk with your wife to be; make sure you’re on the same page and start thinking about your wedding attire that matches her dress.

Choose what suits your body shape and size

Keep in mind that your body type should dictate the suit and don’t try to squeeze in something that is just not right for your type and size. If you want to look sharp, you have to opt for suit shape that looks good on your body. That way you will feel comfortable wearing the suit and focus on celebrating love!

Tall and slim men look good in most tuxedos, that’s a fact, but if you want to add bulk you should opt for a double-breasted suit because it will make you look broader. If you want to slim down, you should opt for a fitted suit and darker hues since they are slimming. If you want to make the impression of a tall groom, you should opt for a two or three button jacket to elongate the body. The key is in trying out many different options until you either find a perfect suit or opt for a tailored one. 

Add your personal touch through little details

When it comes to choosing the accessories, you should pick ones that will set you apart from the guests wearing dark suits. The key to achieving a totally unique look is in little details, colors, something that depicts your personality and make you stand out. Add a touch of color to your attire and make it more personalized with special boutonniere, colorful bow tie and a matching pocket square, vest, cummerbund or goofy cuff links (hello, Star-Wars-inspired cuff links – perfect). Don’t hesitate to play with small details to spice things up a bit and add a personal touch to your wedding attire.

Find inspiration in these simple tips and tricks to choose the best grooms attire for your big day. Draw away attention from your wonderful bride to your amazing wedding look – it is about time to put the groom in the limelight!
