You’ve heard all the buzz about rustic weddings, and you know this is definitely the wedding style for you. You’ve got all kinds of inspiration for how to decorate the venue and what the bride should wear, but what about the groom? What should he wear that fits with the theme? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Rustic weddings tend to be a little less rigid than a normal wedding, which gives both the bride and the groom the ability to play around with different colors and fabrics. Look for old-timey fabrics for the suit, like plaid or velvet, that give the overall look a more vintage feel. Also, feel free to choose a print or a bold color for your shirt or tie to add a little more personality to your outfit.
Another trend that grooms are taking on is to swap their suit jacket for a stylish tweed vest and swapping their dress pants for a nice pair of jeans. Remember, casual doesn’t mean sloppy. If you’re going to wear jeans, make sure they fit perfectly well and are crisply ironed.
The beauty of a rustic wedding is how it connects the bride and groom to nature. The groom can match his look to this theme by choosing lighter colors instead of the traditional black suit. Tans, beiges, browns, and maroons give an overall earthy feel that compliments this wedding style perfectly. Light blues and turquoises, although not neutral colors, are also on-trend and give a great pop of color for a summer wedding. Look for inspiration from an outdoor wedding at the Inn at Millrace Pond that beautifully integrated color into their wedding theme.
Your facial grooming is really up to you. You can go for the classic clean-shaven look for a vintage feel, or sport a fully grown beard to have a more rugged, modern look. Either option would suit the theme nicely. Whatever style you choose, make sure that you have the shaving tools you need to maintain a clean-cut look. You don’t want to look like you just rolled out of bed, so take the time to make sure that your facial hair is neatly trimmed.
Once you’ve got the suit all picked out, it’s time to accessorize! This is where rustic grooms can really show off their style. Boutonnieres are a great way to add a little elegance to the groom’s look, and a nice pocket watch gives off more of a vintage vibe. If you’re set on going without a jacket but aren’t really a vest kind of guy, then suspenders provide the perfect marriage of classy and casual.
Ties provide another opportunity to showcase your uniqueness. A brightly-colored necktie or a bowtie with a funky-colored print lets the groom’s personality shine through. Top the look off with a cowboy hat, a fedora, or a hat that has more of a boho feel to it, to add an extra element of swag.
The shoes also offer an area of freedom, but a nice brogue will usually complement any style; especially if you’re going for an old-timey, classic look.
