Contrasting suit jackets

Don’t think you have to stick to a traditional all-one-colour suit! Play around with your wedding’s colour palette and different textures to find a combination that you love. Go-to options at the moment are blue suit jackets with tan or white pants, and sea foam-green suit jackets with navy pants.

Bold colours

Bold colours aren’t just for the bridesmaids! Swap the classic black or blue suit for tones like burgundy, emerald green or even pink – don’t knock it till you try it (on)!

Mix-matched tones

Mix-matched bridesmaid dresses have been a popular trend for a while now – why not embrace this look for your suits? Obviously, this works best for same-sex weddings, where grooms wear slightly alternative versions of the same suit. Change things up with your suit jackets, shirts or pants in complementary tones for a modern look.

Attention to texture

This would have to be one of the biggest grooms’ suit trends right now! Up the luxury with a velvet suit jacket, or go bold with a full suit in fabrics like tweed or linen (depending on your venue and the season).

Three-piece suit

This old-world favourite is making a bit of a come-back! Great for grooms tying the knot in the cooler season, three-piece suits look utterly distinguished – perfect for giving your wedding a real ‘sense of occasion’.

Return to classic glamour

Following on from the three-piece suit trend, classically sharp suits like tuxedos are proving a popular choice with grooms lately. Let icons like James Bond (even though fictional) and George Clooney be your black-tie inspiration.

Funky patterns

On the complete other side of things, playful patterns are creeping into grooms’ wedding-day outfits. Draw upon your wedding’s overall ‘feel’ and the venue to find the ideal match. Think ties or shirts in palm prints for a tropical celebration and exotic floral patterns for Mexican fiesta-inspired weddings, for example.

Slim-fit tailoring

They’re not for everyone, but slim-fit suits can look amazing when worn right. Invest in good tailoring (it’s always a good idea to get something customised to you) and only opt for this look if it’s something you’re comfortable wearing.

Tie in groomsmen’s suits with matching accessories

While you don’t have to go as bold as the groom below (we say go for it if you’re keen!), adding an element of your wedding-day look to your groomsmen’s outfits can make great impact.

A wonderful way to rock this trend? Consider wearing a different coloured suit to your bridal party and asking them to wear a tie, shirt or pocket square in the colour you’re wearing. Confused? For example, if you plan on saying your vows in a burgundy suit and you’re dressing your groomsmen in black suits, add a pop of burgundy with their accessories.
