Most wedding fashion focuses on brides, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of style options for grooms. Depending on the formality of the fête, grooms and groomsmen can wear anything from a classic black tuxedo to khakis and dress shirts. However, the real opportunity for the men to make a fashion statement is with neckwear. A stylish tie can make all the difference from an outfit being ordinary or memorable. While trendy bridesmaids start to lean towards mismatched, but complementary, dresses, distinctive ties give the men across the aisle the chance to differentiate themselves and show their individuality. If the groom had a part in choosing the wedding colors, all the more reason to let him in on the fun with a modern tie.
While the boys don’t have to exactly match the bridesmaid dresses, neckties or bow ties influenced by the color palette of your big day will add an eye-pleasing cohesion to the soirée. There are a variety of different styles for the modern groom to have fun with his neckwear, and we’ve gathered some of our favorite examples from real weddings for your inspiration.
