With all new contemporary styles and latest trends, penguinesque tuxedos have taken a back seat. Today groom and his brigade have a plethora of styles to choose from and substitute to the old-fashioned black and white tuxedo. The catch is to find the right attire and style according to the theme of the wedding.
The groomsmen outfit should complement the groom’s outfit. The outfit should match in style and feel. All the eyes are on the groom on the wedding day so his pick should overpower all other outfits. There is no strict rulebook for choosing the outfit but certain key points should be kept in consideration while choosing the groom and his entourage outfit on the wedding day.
The very basic point should be kept in consideration is that the wedding outfit should match the theme, venue and the overall vibe of the wedding. Go for lighter shade casual suits made out of khakhi or maybe linen if the wedding is in the daytime and if the wedding is in the night in some stylishly luxurious hotel/ballroom, a dark tailored suit or tuxedo will do the trick.
For a couple-to-be, their wedding is the first opportunity to exhibit their fashion style in combination. Always make sure that your style works together and be the word of discussion days after the wedding. It’s always a good idea to go together for the outfit selection for the wedding day. If the bride is wearing dazzled gown the groom should go for a classic black color tuxedo. A rustic lace gown and the tailored tan suit makes an impeccable combo.
One thing should be kept in mind while choosing the groomsmen outfits for the wedding is that they should be in sync with that of bridesmaids outfits. While selecting vests and tie shades for groomsmen, The sample color or the outfit design of bridesmaids should be there. The style of the outfit should also match and the couple should follow same patterns for both the entourages. Try to incorporate minimal colors in the outfit because it will be difficult working with a number of colors.
Another important aspect while choosing the outfit is that the fit should be perfect from top to toe. Everything from the outfit to the shoes should fit up to the mark. If the fit is not perfect, the most expensive outfit will certainly look awful and unpleasant. The wedding is all about dancing so the fit should be such that all you groom brigade move easily with twists and turns. So instead of buying a readymade suit go for a tailored made suit.
The basis of looking sharp & crisp is on should dress up according to their body type. For tall and slim men most of the tuxedos and suits will look good on their frame and if you want to look broader try a double-breasted suit. For bulky body type, a fitted suit will give a leaner silhouette and use a darker color outfit because they make you look slim. Both the groom and the groomsmen should choose the outfit according to their body types and this goes with the bride and her maids too.
Traditionally groom and his men wear similar types of outfits, But it's not a rule even if the outfits are not similar the style and the entire feel should be in coordination. It will look little absurd if the groom is in the formal tuxedo and his men in cotton casual khaki suits. Matching does not limit only to groom and his men but everything in the wedding should be in coordination. The brides and her maids should also be coordinated in terms of style and feel of the groom and his brigade outfit. Say for example if the bride brigade is rocking a vintage vibe the groom entourage can go for a retro three-piece suit.
To achieve a unique look try to work on details. Go for statement boutonnieres that match with bridal bouquet. You can spice things up by wearing bow ties, lapel pins, cuff-links that goes well with the outfit.
