Playful Ways to Showcase the Groom’s Personality with His Outfit

Playful Ways to Showcase the Groom’s Personality with His Outfit

Not enthusiastic about wearing a classic black tuxedo at your wedding? Relax. There are plenty of ways for a groom to show off what makes him special, while still complementing the rest of the wedding party. Discover some playful ways to showcase a groom’s personality with his outfit. 

  1. Color

Just because you’re at a wedding doesn’t mean you have to stick to neutrals! Color blocking is in for grooms and their guys, so be daring and consider a broad range of color options for your suit or tux.  

Remember to choose colors that are in keeping with the theme and color palette of the wedding, and ensure that you and your groomsmen will still coordinate well with the bride and her bridesmaids.  

  1. Accessories

Accessories allow a groom’s personality to truly shine. From caps to cufflinks, from bowties to regular ties, from footwear to lapel pins, there’s a broad gamut of options for the groom who wants to make a statement.  

Think about unexpected accessories like scarves, ascots, cravats, fedoras, or walking sticks. Chunky watches, watches on chains, antique tie-pins, or pocket squares all give you the opportunity to share a little of what makes you happy.  

  1. Style

One way to show off your personality as the groom is to select a suit in your preferred style. Just because a particular lapel width, body cut, pocket design, or button size is in fashion, doesn’t mean you have to wear it! Choose a tux that reflects you, whether you’re a lover of vintage fashion, ultra-modern edge, current trends, or off-beat looks.  

If you don’t like blazers and jackets, try a vest instead. If the classic suit materials don’t appeal to you, try something in a different texture. The more you explore, the more options you’ll discover.  

  1. Formality

Not every groom wants to wear a tux to his wedding. If you’re a groom with a love for casual clothing, it’s okay to showcase that love of ease and comfort, even at your wedding.  

Why not wear a pair of neatly pressed, high-quality jeans, topped off with a well-tailored shirt? Add a tie or bowtie to take the look from “everyday wear” to “special occasion.” 

Chambray shirts are the ideal choice for a man who dislikes dressing up. They feature collars and cuffs like a dress shirt, but the fabric is comfortable, light, and breathable. Check out the chambray options offered by your favorite brands and designers, and select a variation that suits your wedding aesthetic. 

  1. Theme

If you’re having a beach-themed wedding, you could go a step further, breaking out the Hawaiian shirts. Keep the pattern subtle and classy, pair the shirt with fitted dark pants or khakis, and you’re all set! Aloha! 

Is your wedding rustic or western-themed? Break out the plaid shirts, pull on those boots, and don the cowboy hat of your dreams. Just make sure that it’s all top-quality and perfectly fitted for your big day.
