Get ready to suit up, gents!
A wedding is a perfect opportunity to show off your best outfit and make a lasting impression. With so many options, the selection process can feel pretty overwhelming.
But don't worry, we've got you covered!
In this post, we'll break down all the styles and options for the groom and his squad. Whether you're a classic guy or a trendsetter who likes to stand out, we'll help you find the perfect suit to make your wedding day one to remember.
Let's get right into it.
The Classic Black Tux
If you're a classy man, who likes to stick to tradition, consider wearing a black tux. This sophisticated style exudes elegance and class, making it the perfect choice for formal and traditional weddings, especially those with a black tie dress code.
Green Wedding Suit
Why not spice things up with a green wedding suit? In fact, green suits are also one of our bestsellers. After all, a green suit is a unique and stylish wedding choice and will help any groom stand out. Moreover, green is a versatile colour that can be paired with a variety of other colors and styles, allowing for a wide range of creative possibilities.
Fun fact: Green is often associated with nature and growth, making it a fitting colour for a wedding ceremony.
Blue Wedding Suit
You can never go wrong with blue, especially with a neutral tone, such as navy blue. If you're into something more eye-catching, go for a brighter shade, like baby blue or powder blue for a less formal wedding. A slim-fit or tailored suit will give you that sharp and polished look. Match it with a white or light-colored dress shirt and a coordinating tie or bow tie and add a pop of personality with a pocket square in a contrasting shade. Remember to keep the wedding theme and setting in mind when choosing your blue suit.
Gray Wedding Suit
Don't underestimate the power of gray. This colour will look great on anyone and can be adapted as you like. A lighter shade of gray, such as silver or charcoal, will give a more modern look. You can also opt for a traditional charcoal gray for a classic look. You can always spice up your suit with a bit more colour, such as a splash of orange or perhaps a darker shade of gray for a nice contrast.
Beige Wedding Suit
Beige wedding suits are common in more casual weddings, such as beach weddings. They exude a relaxed, laid-back vibe while still maintaining a polished look. The light and neutral colour of the beige suit pairs perfectly with linen fabric, making it the ideal choice for warmer weather. For example, having the groom wear a more vivid colour, can lead to a wonderful contrast with the beige suits of the groomsmen.
White Wedding Tuxedo
Do you have a unique sense of style? Then how about a white tuxedo for your wedding? To make the most of this timeless look, choose a well-tailored, slim-fit white tuxedo jacket and trousers. Pair it with a classic white dress shirt, black bow tie, and black patent leather shoes for a sharp and polished look. Avoid other colors except black and white to make the tuxedo stand out. This wedding outfit is ideal for a summer or beach wedding.
Vintage Wedding Suit
Vintage wedding suits are a unique and stylish option for grooms. They feature classic designs and details from specific eras and offer a range of styles to choose from. They have a touch of nostalgia that will make you stand out on your big day. These suits are characterized by their classic design, attention to detail, and high-quality materials, such as wool, tweed, or linen, that give them an elegant look.
Velvet Wedding Suit
If your wedding is taking place during the winter or perhaps even autumn, you may want to opt for a velvet suit. Velvet suits come in a variety of colors, the most popular being black, navy blue, and burgundy. These colors are classic and elegant, perfect for a formal wedding. But you can also find velvet suits in other rich hues such as emerald green, and royal blue, and even in lighter shades like beige and cream.
We know it might sound frightening to get married in the summer heat wearing a suit, but you can choose from many comfortable options. At Hockerty, we offer you amazing beige, light gray or even white groom suits for you to keep the sun at bay. Our selection of breathable linen fabrics or lightweight cotton materials will help you keep cool under direct sunlight. If your wedding dress code is not strict, you can also get married in a waistcoat and use the suit jacket when the sun sets down. We’ve got you covered, and you can look elegant while being comfortable.

Winter weddings have an amazing charm to them. If it snows or not, it is still going to be cold and you have the opposite problem as a summer groom. Ideal winter materials for you are tweed, velvet, corduroy, or wool. There are so many options to choose from to create the perfect winter groom clothes! Winter is also an ideal season to wear a three-piece groom suit. The waistcoat as an extra layer can keep you warm and add an additional touch of elegance to your outfit. That sounds like a win-win situation, right?
When Should I Start Looking for a Suit?
Start actively searching for your suit 4 months before the wedding to avoid feeling pressured and stressed. Remember, the wedding outfit plays an important role and you'll want to feel comfortable and dashing - especially in your photos.
Should I Rent or Buy a Wedding Suit?
Make a lasting impression on your wedding day with a custom-fit suit that's built to last. Not only will it serve as a timeless reminder of your big day, but it'll also elevate your style for any future occasion. Say goodbye to rental suits and make a bold statement with a suit that's tailored to your unique style and fit.
Wedding Dress Code
Wedding dress codes are a helpful guide for your guests, and they can also make it easier for you to choose the perfect groom outfit. If your wedding follows a black-tie dress code, consider a classic tuxedo or a modern twist on the traditional style. A more relaxed dress code can include options like a classic two-piece navy suit or suit trousers with a crisp shirt and suspenders.
Whatever dress code you're following, be sure to discuss your groom's outfit with your bride and make sure it aligns with her vision for your special day.
Designer Wedding Suits for Groom
Groom Suit fitting
Regardless of whether your wedding is formal or casual, the fit must be accurate to remain sharp. Get properly measured and make sure that the suit is adjusted to fit. Asides from choosing the right fabric, colour, detailing and stitching, you still need a wedding suit style that compliments your physique.
Finally, look out for some or every single one of these details when choosing your groom suit: hand stitched sleeve lining, a flower loop, hand finished interior pocket, vented pleat and a hidden pocket – the most ideal place for storing those wedding bands!
