Weddings are still a huge deal in most societies of the world and it is no longer surprising that most modern grooms have started opting for a more stylish look on their big day. Grooms now have started putting more effort to add their own flavour to this once in a lifetime experience. Chances are a modern groom and his friends would be decked in a bespoke suit these days and would not be afraid to push boundaries and try something new.
So, here are the top 5 recent trends we have seen so far for grooms and groomsmen.
1. Mismatched Pieces
The one coloured or plain coloured pieces have been replaced with ‘mismatched’ alternatives like waistcoats for a three-piece style suit in a different colour from the jacket and the trousers. A nice textured vest brings that old classic feel. Lately, patterned shirts and tweed waistcoats have been making waves for a country look. Patterned ties and fun coloured or print bow ties allows a glimpse into the groom’s personality.
2. Burgundy and Marsala Suits
The usual wedding suit colours like black, grey and navy blue continue to be the leading colour of choice for grooms. While we cannot deny the classic look they provide, we cannot help but notice that the new wave of modern grooms are prepared to push the envelope with colours like brown, burgundy and marsala. Either as a one colour two piece or a patterned mix up, we cannot help but appreciate a groom that stands out.
3. Accent Colours
Brilliant accent colours still continue to remain a favourite and we still remain fascinated with how colour can spruce the entire look of the groom and the groomsmen. These accent colours are displayed in several forms like in pocket squares, button hole flowers, lapels and even socks.
4. The Mix and Match Crew
The stand out groom now chooses a complete or partially different look from his best man and his buddies, we now have grooms that wear a different colour suit or the only one to wear a jacket or even a different vest. The mix and match style have grooms and groomsmen playing with different colours and textures or decked up in contrasting looks with varying styles. Some grooms that still appreciate the traditional solids can mix and match patterns and fun colours with accessories i.e bow ties. Pocket squares etc. The options remain endless and the result therefore is appreciated in the wedding photos where these details pop.
Suspenders are making a come back and we are loving it. Suspenders are a fun twist from the vest look and modern grooms even have monogrammed suspenders for a classy yet personal touch. This trend can also be rocked in bright colours and even patterns. No doubt the chance to leave your wedding guests impressed with these added details should not be missed.
