New Jersey Wedding Photography How to Have Fashion Forward Groomsmen

we realized that we maybe need a little bit more assistance in how to have your groomsmen look great and not like a bunch of guys heading to prom.  I’ve found that sometimes the snag with groomsmen is that grooms feel less comfortable asking their friends to spend some money on attire specifically for their wedding, whereas it’s expected by Bridesmaids to shell out on an event specific ensemble.  So, often, the answer is to simply default to a rented tux. But, if a groom can wrap his head around asking his groomsmen to participate in a “look”, the results can be quite dapper and unlike most bridesmaids’ dresses, the groomsmen CAN actually wear that suit/ vest/ tie, etc. again.

For weddings that are a little less formal, I love the idea of putting your groomsmen in suit vests without jackets.  It’s stylish and more polished than forgoing just shirt and slacks. (Via Silverthorne Pavillion):

In the summertime or on the beach, I think a Khaki suit can look so handsome. Here, they paired fabulous suits with colorful ties for a festive and fun look. (via Silver Thorne Pavillion)

Obviously, THE GROOM should be the most stylish man in the wedding party, but remember, his look can inspire the groomsmen, but not necessarily be replicated EXACTLY.  I thought this fabulous groom looked amazing in his bespoke suit, but his wedding party looked no less dapper in these great 3 piece grey suits that they will wear again and again.

Sometimes, it’s great to let your groomsmen shine with their own personal looks- a great solution for a more CASUAL wedding. I loved this mismatched wedding party on Green Wedding Shoes and I got the sense that each of these men carried their own “everyday” style into their wedding look.

Of course, the easiest way to keep everyone “uniformed” but not without personality is to play with the best men’s accessory of all: the tie.  I LOVE this coordinated, but mis-matched tie look! (Via
