As much as bridesmaids may complain about a dress cut or color being unflattering, there’s no doubt that there’s a lot more variety in outfits for bridesmaids than groomsmen. And more variety often means more fun and personalization!
For decades, men have been told to wear a black tuxedo or suit and call it a day. Maybe they would get to have a unique boutonniere or tie, but that tends to be it when it comes to men's wedding fashion. However, as weddings become more and more of an expression of the couple’s personality, the groom and his groomsmen have been able to drift away from the uniformity of the black tuxedo or suit. While that’s still the best look for a more formal fête, an alfresco affair offers the chance to try different looks for the men.

There's nothing more in style right now than a rustic wedding. For couples planning a casual celebration with a country flair, groomsmen decked with cowboy hats and rich denim is the way to go! Horses not required. Photo by Mark Steines
