There's nothing we love more than a handsome man in a suit. So many of you tell us that one of your favourite moments of the day is clapping eyes on your husband-to-be for the first time, suited and booted and often waiting for you at the end of the aisle. Whatever your other half wears on a daily basis, his personal style can now be reflected in the wedding day fashion. There are some really amazing tailored and ready-to-wear options now, perfect for every budget. So here are four groom suit ideas we're loving at the moment. 

Black Tie

Not just for cocktail parties and evening soirees, the black tie is having a real moment in the wedding world. We LOVE this look as it means everyone has to dress the part, which is great for a synchronised aesthetic! Think gowns, heels, and fascinators. It's suave and sophisticated but also a little bit cheeky - the perfect look if your groom wears a suit most days and wants something a little different. Also, it's ideal if your dress is sleek and sexy - you need the 007 to your Bond girl...

This black tux jacket by M&S is a fantastic pairing to a sharp black tie. And for bowties, Mrs Bowtie is your go-to shop. We have countless real brides recommending them. And for suit hire, check out the Ritz range from Jack Bunneys. So slick.

Light Jackets

If the vibe of your day is more relaxed and steering away from the traditional, why not consider a light jacket for your groom? Not only are the shades perfect for complementing soft and romantic colour schemes, but these tones are also gorgeous for summer months. However, as demonstrated in our mood board below, don light jackets with burgundy and you've got an Autumnal winner too. Selected Homme makes the most gorgeous suits for a great price (the power of Scandi strikes again) so if you're after something that's stylish, affordable, and a little bit different, then do check out this little greige number.

Royal Blue

Navy has been the obvious choice of weddings for a long time – it's classic, elegant, and timeless. But right now, we're loving a slightly brighter shade of blue. It pops a little more, it's a more fun, and definitely feels younger. I think I secretly love it because it calls for a lovely pair of tan brogues – the only type of footwear for men that I actually like (hahaha). If you've yet to discover John Lewis' own brand label Kin, then allow me to introduce you. I'm loving this slim-fitting bright blue suit, especially paired with the mustard yellow tie. And don't forget Moss Bros either – they stock some of our favourite menswear brands such as Ted Baker and French Connection to hire. Great for groomsmen too.

Check Mate

And last but by no means least, possibly the most fun way to dress for your wedding day – checks. I love the vibe a checked suit brings to proceedings. It's casual, cheeky, and frankly synonymous with a rustic wedding. The best thing about this pattern is that it can vary in thickness too, depending on the material. Go light in checked linen, or opt for the warmth of a tweed getup. Whenever and wherever your wedding is, there's a checked suit waiting for the occasion. Our favourite place for checks has to be Jack Bunneys, who offer a hugely varied collection of patterns and colourways. If you want to embrace this look, but think a whole suit is one check too far, then why not just opt for a checked waistcoat?Groom Wearing Checked Suit For Wedding | Groom Fashion Inspiration
