How to Choose the Groom’s Wedding Attire

Wedding are one of the most special occasions in one’s life.

They are a celebration of love and the day that couples get to seal their union with vows before God, friends, family and loved ones.

Therefore, we begin by congratulating you and your partner; may you find all the happiness in the world.

Now, moving on, finding the groom’s attire tends to be one of the most frustrating things for any couple. Since time immemorial, people have always paid attention to the bride’s dress, her jewelry and her makeup. But as much as all that is important, the man should not be forgotten as this is also his special day.  While couples do everything within their means to ensure that the bride looks good, it is important that the groom gets the same attention.

That said, as you prepare and plan for your wedding, here are some helpful tips that will guide you into choosing the best groom’s attire based on your wedding theme.

  • For a formal wedding theme, the groom will look his best in formal traditional attire like a tuxedo with a matching waist coat, a shirt, a tie or bow tie depending on the groom’s personal preference, cufflinks and a wrist watch (optional). When choosing such attire for the groom, ensure that you incorporate his unique taste and a touch of individualism. In addition to this, do not over accessorize; cufflinks and men’s wedding bands are the only accessories you cannot do without, so you leave out the rest.


When choosing formal wedding attire, there is a scope of choosing colors, designs and style according to personal taste and preference. Therefore, if you want to make a statement on your wedding day, you can wow your crowd with a unique choice of attire. However, ensure that what you wear is subtle yet stylish and not over the top.


  • Away from formal wedding attire, most couples nowadays are opting for non-formal wedding themes. In fact, the number of grooms we see wearing more of casual attires is increasing by the day. Cotton and linen suits have become the new normal for modern couples as they are comfortable, sassy and ideal for summer weddings.


Therefore, do not be afraid of choosing something new. If tuxedos are not your favorite, then you can marry the woman of your dreams in your casual smart attire. After all, you should feel great on your wedding day especially with your choice of attire.


  • Another wedding theme that is quite in the rise is beach weddings. Nowadays, couples cannot get enough of the white sandy beaches across the world and you would be surprised by the number of couples opting for destination beach weddings.


Owing to the fact that these kinds of weddings are gaining popularity, it is important that you choose your attire wisely. For beach weddings, informal dress codes are the best. Therefore, it would be cool to show up in sandals and khaki as this is one of the best beach outfits for the groom.
