How to Choose Groomsmen Attire
The groomsmen’s attire is just as important as the lucky couple when pulling your wedding vision together. Groomsmen traditionally wear a suit or a tuxedo that aims to complement what the groom has chosen to wear. When selecting your groomsmen’s attire, consider your venue and the formality of the event. If your wedding is in the warmer months, daytime, or outdoors, try to utilize lighter-colors, more casual fabrics like khaki, and suits (or even jackets and slacks) as opposed to tuxes. If your event is in the evening, takes place in a swanky venue, or if you want to create a generally elevated, formal atmosphere, go with dark suits or get extra stylish with tuxedoes.
Do the groom and groomsmen wear the same suit
Traditionally, the groom and groomsmen wear the same outfit, as well as the fathers of the couple. However, the more modern approach is for the groom to wear something that makes them stand out from the crowd on their special day. This can be reflected in the suit style or more subtly through choice of fabric. These little differences will make the groom shine on the day and allow the groomsmen’s attire to act as a complement to the overall theme.
Does each groomsmen suit have to be exactly the same?
Traditionally, the groomsmen wear attire that is either the same or similar to that of the groom, but really it’s up to you. Though, even if you aren’t planning for all the men in your wedding party to wear the exact same suit or tux, it is still important that their outfits match in style and feel with yours.
Does the groom pay for groomsmen suits?
Traditionally, groomsmen rent their own suits (including tie, socks, and sometimes shoes) for the big day. If you’re financially able to, it’s fine for the groom to offer to pay for all or some of the suits, but make sure your intent is clear from the beginning.
