The wedding day is one of the most important days of any man’s life and will require you to be at your best to make it memorable. However, the day has mostly been associated with the bride more than it has with the groom. While it more of a ladies affair than it is a mens one, it is important that we do not forget about the person (the groom) making it happen.

As a groom, you may be having tonnes of questions. Who do you invite? Where will your wedding take place? What about food and catering? While these are essential questions, its most probable that your soon-to-be wife will be handling most of these issues- its ingrained in their instinct. Nonetheless, you have to ensure that you are a part of the decision making process. However, there is one thing that you need to work on to ensure that your day is perfect and that you complement one another as you stand on the alter and about to say I do- finding the right attire for your big day.


As simple as it seems, finding the most befitting style and attire to adorn on your big day could be a complicated and rather hard task. The biggest issue may be finding the best style that will let you stand out yet complementing your love. With different options and styles to choose from, question is what do you wear? Do you go for the classical formal tuxedo style? Or do you get a well-tailored suit for that sharp wedding look?

To make the right decision, it is important that you consider several factors that could help you decide on what to go for.


1. Colour Coordination

It’s quite obvious that you have already settled for a colour scheme for your wedding right. To make sure that you stay relevant and sharp on your wedding day, getting attire that will colour coordinate with the whole scheme will be essential. Basically, it is the accessories you go for that will determine this. This on the other hand will make it easier to make a decision on what you are going to wear. Is it a tuxedo with matching colour bow ties or cummerbund or a two piece suit with the vests and ties colour matching to those of your groom, that will be up to you.


2. Jacket style

The jacket style you go for will matter a lot. It is the jacket that will determine your overall wedding look and the flair you will have as the groom. As it is there are about seven jacket styles available and which you can choose from. Nonetheless, finding the most befitting style and one which will complement your soon-to-be-wife should be top priority. Of all jacket styles available, these two are the most common and highly rated styles for any groom to go for- the tuxedo and the suit.

These are just two simple tips on what to look for when planning on what to wear to your wedding. For more tips, tricks and advice on what to get, where to get them and things to consider when choosing wedding attire as the groom, visit my dream wedding today.
