A man’s wedding is one of the most important days of his life. And dressing impeccably is imperative for this momentous occasion.

Here are a few rules to follow for that special day.

Believe it or not, gray suits for the groom and groomsmen are great option. After all, this color will stand out more than darker shades, such as navy or black, but will still offer the sophistication needed for this event. Some of the reasons gray is the perfect, go-to suit color for any wedding are highlighted here.

Multi-Seasonal Appeal

Gray offers great seasonal versatility. Many grooms choose gray for the warmer months (i.e. spring or summer weddings) or for destination weddings due to the fact that the lighter shade offers a break from the darker colors traditionally used during the winter or fall months.

For example, you can opt for Iron Gray for fall, or for more formal occasions because it’s a darker hue. For summer weddings, cement or Sharkskin Gray make great options. Keep in mind, to help the groom stand out, consider a darker or lighter color for his suit, compared to his groomsmen.

Also, softer brighter colors; pair well with gray suits. This can solidify the colors’ place as a staple for the warmer seasons of the year. While gray is definitely a great option for warm weather, it’s also excellent for winter and fall, too.

Classic Yet Modern

Gray isn’t quite as formal as black or navy, but it is also not as loud as a brilliant blue. In fact, gray is considered the right “in-between” option for those who want something timeless that can be styled up or down.

Based on the different accents and elements selected, a gray suit can either offer a relaxed feel, or a refined look. The appearance of a gray suit as being a street-style go-to option has transformed this option as a favorite of millennials and younger men. As a result, it’s a great option for groomsmen, leading to the next reason.

Superior Versatility

Gray isn’t a “one-trick” pony. There are countless ways to make it a great choice for a wedding party. If a wedding is more formal, then a gray suit is the ideal dapper option. For a more classic event, the suit can be complemented with a gray or black tie, brown Oxfords and a white button-down shirt. If casual is the order of the day, or even a relaxed vibe, then opt to get rid of the ties, don suspenders and choose lighter or patterned accessories.

Gray is one of those wedding colors that can work with any type or size of event. It can be manipulated to work, regardless of the tone or any other factor present. When the groom is choosing suits for his groomsmen, one of the best things he can do is to choose gray. Not only will it look amazing, but it will be something the men will actually love wearing.
