Gone are the days where a groom stood at the altar in a simple black tux or suit. Now guys are putting a lot of thought into what they wear on their wedding day, and luckily, there is no shortage of ways to show off your own personal style at this special event.

From color to fit, you can customize your suit or tux so that you stand up at the altar looking and feeling your best.

Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Mix & Match Colors

The groom should stand out from his groomsmen—and an easy way to make that happen is with color. For example, if your guys are wearing dark blue suits, choose a lighter blue ensemble for yourself.

SELECT SWATCHES

Be Bold with Your Tie

Whether it’s a dramatic color, a pretty paisley or an off-beat pattern, the tie you choose can definitely make a statement on your wedding day. Switching up your tie is another easy way to stand out from your groomsmen.

Get Playful with Accessories

A colorful pocket square and pair of socks can add some whimsy to your overall look.

Add A Vest

Choosing to wear a vest changes your look from a two-piece suit to a three-piece. While Generation Tux offers the matching vest and suit, all of their colors complement one another so feel free to mix and match.

Choose Your Shirt Style

Believe it or not, there are a variety of shirts to choose from. You’ll need to select between plain fronts, pleated fronts, or pique bib fronts, as well as fabric, collar style, and cuff style to complete the suit’s look. And let’s not forget about color: While traditional grooms might opt for a white shirt, out-of-the-box guys might want to match the bridal party color scheme.

Wear A Family Heirloom

The bride doesn’t have to be the only one to carry a sentimental memento down the aisle with her. You can also add a piece of jewelry that is important to you and honors your family, such as your grandfather’s watch or your dad’s favorite cufflinks.

Go With a Bold Boutonniere

A bright and beautiful boutonniere will put the finishing touch on your dapper ensemble.  

Try a Lapel Pin

If you don’t want to wear a boutonniere, opt for a lapel pin instead. It can be as simple as a small, faux flower or choose something more personalized. 

GET INSPIRED

Sport Suspenders

While guests won’t see your suspenders when you have your suit or tuxedo jacket on during the ceremony, they’ll be able to view them during the reception once the dancing starts and the jacket comes off. 

Slip-on the Right Shoes

You need the right pair of shoes to complete your wedding day look. Dress shoes can be pricey, but we have a few pairs you can rent for the big day.
