Fashion Friday: Groom Style

We hope our brides don’t mind us focusing on the grooms this Fashion Friday – after all they need to look smart, too. Grooms-to-be, get ready to discover the latest fashion trends so you can rock your frock on the big day. 

There are plenty of choices for menswear wedding suits ranging in colours, styles and cuts available. If you’re fans of tails or kilts, then you’re probably better off renting one from a wedding specialist – we have a list of local stockists on our website and inside the pages of West Weddings magazine. However, if you’d rather invest in a suit that you can wear long after the wedding, then why not arrange a shopping trip with your best man – large department stores like John Lewis, House of Fraser and Debenhams are a good place to start.


Invest in a morning suit that fits well and makes you look and feel great. Adding a waistcoat is optional, but wearing one will give you a more polished look once you take off your jacket after the ceremony.


There’s something special about wearing a crisp white shirt fitted to perfection – your wedding day is the best time to let your personality shine, and even channel that James Bond look you’ve always wanted.

Stylish shoes

Make sure the wedding shoes you choose go with the suit and feel comfortable – wear them in before the big day to loosen them. Get ready to impress your bride and guests with your dance moves!


Wear a bright tie or dickie bow to jazz up a dark suit and, if your wedding has a theme colour, then your tie could match the bridesmaids’ dresses. When it comes to cufflinks, why not splash out on a personalised pair that will make you stand out from your groomsmen. No wedding day look is complete without a stylish belt and your signature fragrance – perfect for making a statement!   

Before making your decision, take a look at these grooms’ outfits – you’ll recognise them from West Weddings magazine. We’ve also created a Pinterest board dedicated to grooms’ fashion – let us know which ones you prefer on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
