Yes, we said pink, but believe it or not, this suit is not at all feminine. It brings a certain classic Gatsby look for the groom that loves color and a vintage style. This pink suit from Suit Supply is a very light maroon tweed that creates a relaxed pink hue. Tone down the color of the jacket by pairing it with a simple white button-down.
Tan suits can tend to scare off brides because grooms can often get lost in the photos, particularly if you have an early ceremony with lots of natural sunlight. However, the right setting can make a tan suit pop. This couple exchanged vows in an intimate wedding in Castle Valley. The contrast of the red dust of the Utah desert made the groom stand out. Consider embroidering your name on the inside of your jacket to customize it like this groom did.

This groom changed up their look from the ceremony to the reception. They also varied their textures with a neutral tan hued tweed jacket from Revolvr for the ceremony, to a pink velvet suit also from Revolvr for their reception. While their partner switched up his look from a short sleeve button up and suspenders to a simple tee and mosaic printed pants. Perfect for that modern city-loving couple.
