When deciding the style of the suit for the groom, you have to think about the style of the event. For a formal wedding, as well as for a casual wedding, there are some different styles of the suit that the groom can wear.

Formal Wedding Groom’s Wear Style

The Morning Dress/Suit Style: A traditional choice consisting of a tailcoat, waistcoat, and (striped) trousers. Picture the morning suit, which is all gray, while Morning Dress is usually more colorful with interesting tie/waistcoat combination. This is a very posh option  for a groom who is a bit of a dandy. A groom should wear a morning suit only if the wedding is taking place at noon or early afternoon.

The Tuxedo Style: Classic black tie evening wear, complete with satin-striped trousers and bow tie. A groom should wear a tuxedo only if the wedding is taking place in the evening. The groom should avoid colored dickey bows and cummerbunds at all cost.

The Edwardian Wedding Style. Top choice with grooms over the last decade. This suit style usually combines a long length jacket with matching trousers and a contrasting waistcoat. Usually the shirt has wingtips and is worn with a cravat. The waistcoat may be either chosen to match the overall wedding theme color, or plain with the cravat coordinated instead.

Casual Wedding Groom’s Wear Style

Modern Day Suit Style: This wear style is a simple, elegant, preferably slim-fit.  The two piece suit can easily  be accessorized with a fun colorful tie to coordinate with the bridal party. This way the groom’s wear will match the bridal dress and even the wedding colors.

Slim Cut 3 Piece Suit Style. This is a dapper and fun alternative for a groom who wants a touch of formality and yet looks modern and fresh at his wedding. Smart choice of cuff-links and tie are essential. Also a pocket watch would add a retro/vintage feel to the groom’s wear.

Casual Suit Style: A loose linen or cotton suit makes a casual and very comfortable wedding outfit for the summer groom. In winter a wool jacket and trousers instead, will ensure the same casual wear for the groom in his wedding day.

Waistcoat & Bow Tie Style: It’s a very relaxed and informal look for a groom, and of course given only really suitable for a summer wedding. The groom might think about buying a jacket to fall back on, just in case!
