There’s nothing we love more than a handsome man in a suit. You lovely brides are always telling 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 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 of the trends we’re really loving for grooms at the moment and the best places to shop the looks…
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 kind of means everyone has to dress the part. 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 perfect if your dress is sleek and sexy – you need the 007 to your Bond Girl…
This Black Tux jacket by M&S is the perfect pairing to a sharp black tie. And for bowties, Mrs Bowtie is your go-to. We have countless real brides recommending them. And for suit hire, check out the Ritz range from Jack Bunneys. SO slick.
If the vibe of your day is more relaxed and you’re steering away from the traditional – then have you considered a light jacket for your groom? Not only are the shades perfect for complimenting soft and romantic colour schemes, but these tones are also gorgeous for summer months. Although, as demonstrated in our moodboard below, pair light jackets with burgundy and you’re on to an Autumnal winner too.
Selected Homme make the most gorgoeus 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.
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 just pops a little more, it’s a little 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 like Ted Baker and French Connection to hire. Perfect for groomsmen too.
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 just perfect for a rustic wedding. The best thing about this pattern is that it can varying in thickness too – depending on the material. Go light in a checked linen, or opt for the warmth of a tweed. Whenever and where ever your wedding is, there’s a checked suit that’s perfect for the occasion.
Our favourite place for checks has to be Jack Bunneys, they offer the best collection of patterns and colour ways. If you want to embrace this look but a whole suit is one check too far – then just opt for a checked waistcoat.
