What to know when choosing the groom suit
Many of our Mimètik Brides ask us for advice to find the ideal groom suit for your couple. You are bohemian brides with a free spirit, and all you find are formal black suits. Sobriety is not bad, but it is also normal to prefer something else that you feel goes more with your style. We have spoken with our Real Brides and we have asked them to tell us their experience, so in this post, you will find tips and inspiration to see different options of wedding attire so that you (or your couple) decide which goes more with the wedding than you have chosen.
Before going to the different types of groom suit, first I want to tell you something. If there is anything I value about all the things about a wedding, it is authenticity. Our wedding dresses are made for authentic brides, who want to feel themselves, without a “costume”. For me, this is the most important thing. And it has to apply also to the groom. You should feel comfortable, look good, and feel yourself. It is a day for the couple, not for conventions and fashions that force you to dress in a way that you don’t identify yourself. Finding the ideal groom suit has to be fun, done with enthusiasm and desire, and with minimal pressure.
Styles for groom suits
The classic style is the perfect choice for the most traditional, a sure bet for elegance. Still, there are many possibilities within this group: tailcoat, morning coat with a frock coat, and tuxedo. According to the protocol, you have them sorted from more to less elegant within the type of classic suits.
As for the colors, blacks and navy blue with white shirts are normally used. It depends on the option that is chosen, it will also be combined with white or gray vests, to give it a touch more of luminosity. Besides, it can be accompanied by a sober tie to continue on the line or with some color to add a more fun and youthful touch. In the case of the tuxedo, a black bow tie is an ideal touch.
In this inspiring photo, you can see Maria and Bernat so beautiful. Bernat opted for a more classic cut groom suit, and the truth is that he’s spectacular. You can see more photos and read their story here.
This is the option that has been most successful lately, is a great intermediate that always works: you can choose between the suit with a blazer or directly with pants and vest. It is a perfect style to go formal but more casual. If the groom is not very blazer-lover, this is a great option with which he can feel comfortable.
In terms of colors, blazers are used more strongly gray, blue and black, while the option of the vest is chosen by earth tones. Even so, more and more the clearer colors blunt in both options. Also, this option is usually taken into account with an effect of two colors in the groom suit: one for the trousers and another for the upper part. And you always have the option to put a special touch with a vest that gives personality.
Here we see Kara and Austin at their rustic wedding. Austin chose a vintage vest that fits like a glove. You can see more photos and read their story here.
This is an ideal style if you are going to have a different, bohemian, outdoor and casual wedding. If the groom does not feel identified with such formal options as the previous ones, the important thing is that he does not renounce his personality and that he feels authentic. Shirts rolled up, espadrilles, suspenders, even shorts! More and more are the couple who dare to stand out and show their character in style on their wedding day.
In this case, the colors of the groom suit will depend a lot on the type of celebration you are thinking about. Of course, a bright shirt and a suspenders that stand out I assure you that will give the perfect touch. It’s time to have fun with the colors and look for the most representative combination. Unleash the imagination!
I don’t see a better option than the one Rait chose for his destination wedding with Ana in Vietnam. Total look! I love that he decided to take a risk, and he is totally in harmony with the location of the ceremony. You can see more photos and read their story here.
You see, there’s a wedding suit for every groom and boring outfits without personality have been left behind. The details provide a unique authenticity to each couple. I summarize what I think about the wedding suits in two points:
- The first and most important thing is to be comfortable, to feel at ease. It’s going to be a busy day!
- Who risks, wins, I assure you! That’s where the emotion is. The groom is also the protagonist of a special day, let it be noticed!
I hope you felt inspired ♥
Lots of love,
