The Ultimate Color Combos for your Groom to Consider

When it comes to wedding fashion, it’s all about the bride and her dress. But shouldn’t the groom feel as chic as the bride for his big day?

We all love the classic black or navy on a handsome husband to be. But when it comes to picking out your grooms wedding day wear, you should be asking yourself more than just what shade of black. From classic matchups to modern twists on the traditional, your groom should feel as special as you do when the big day rolls around.

A groom is no longer bound by a traditional 3-piece suit in a single color. Combining different colors of the same classic suit, can add an unexpected surprise to your groom’s look. Pairing a navy jacket, with gray vest and pants, gives a modern twist on a traditional style.

06. Classic Contemporary meets Floral Flair

This may not be a distinct color combination, but it is a combination worth much consideration! Combining opposing textures is a great way to add some unexpected drama to your grooms wedding day fashion. A navy tweed jacket, and sleek denim shirt do just that! Stay within a similar neutral color palette to keep your grooms gutsy style looking classy and contemporary.

When considering style for the big day, don’t let your groom get left in the dust. A groom’s wedding day look can be just what is needed to finish off a perfectly planned day!
