Groom & Groomsmen

Written by Becks 
When it comes to sorting out the attire for your Groom and Groomsmen, there are great ways you can reflect your wedding theme and personalities for all budgets.
From tailor made suits, new suits, hired suits, or suits your men have in their wardrobes…

In many ways there are a lot more options for the groom especially if having a suit tailored made for your day (making the choosing of your beautiful bridal dress seem like a dream in comparison!).

First off there are the different styles of suit:

  • Tie & Tails
  • Dinner
  • Black Tie / Tuxedo
  • Everyday

Then there are the Jacket details:

  • Silhouette
  • Sack
  • Structured
  • Fitted


  • Sloped
  • Straight
  • Roped

Buttons (and their rules!):

  • Single Button (always done up unless sat down)
  • Two Button (leaving 2nd button undone)
  • Three Button (leaving 3rd button undone)
  • Double Breasted
  • Buttons on sleeves from one to four buttons (which can be ‘spaced’ / ‘kissing’ (touching) / ‘stacked’ (overlapping) )


  • Notch (Smart, multi-purpose)
  • Peak (Sharp style)
  • Shawl (Tuxedo / Dinner jackets)

(plus option to have a button-hole on the lapel)


  • Patch
  • Flap
  • Ticket
  • Angled
  • Jetted
  • Plus pockets inside the jacket too (pen / ticket…)


  • None
  • Single
  • Double


  • Unlined
  • Part Lined
  • Fully Lined

Trouser details (or Kilt):

  • flat
  • pleated
  • side buttons
  • Belt loops
  • slim fit
  • modern
  • Classic
  • Cuffed
  • Uncuffed

Add your personality and theme through your choices – with colour / pattern/ texture / formal details / relaxed styles


For a more relaxed feel, let the groomsmen wear a suit of their choosing, you could suggest a particular colour to limit the options that will appear on the day. A great way to bring all the individual suits together is by accessorising with an unexpected splash of colour from your colour scheme:

  • Tie (slim /classic / wide / straight…)
  • Bow Tie
  • Cravat
  • Waistcoat
  • Top Hat
  • Handkerchief
  • Buttonhole
  • Socks
  • Cufflinks


Sure to bring a smile throughout the day as glimpses of your colour theme shine through. It also creates a perfect and charming photo moment with all the men together alongside the dapper little ones!

Create cherished memories for your day.
