Seasonal Attire for the Groom and Groomsmen

Trying to figure out the perfect fit for your man on the big day? It’s important to take into account the weather and season to ensure your soon to be hubby isn’t too hot or too cold! We are giving you the 411 on all things menswear for every season!


Black suits and tuxes are a classic staple in the wedding industry. This look is timeless and will never go out of style, the black lines contrasting with a crisp white shirt make them really pop! A black suit or tux is fitting for any season! For a more casual look, go for a tie instead of a bowtie. This adorable couple was featured in our latest Colorado Spring/Summer issue which you can view more of here!

Want to add a pop of color? Shop Boulder based company Kind Design for a fun colored topographic tie or pocket square. They also add a sentimental meaning, use the location of your wedding, where you got engaged, or where you bought your first house!

Or try a funky tie from our Vendor Collective member 2020 Ties


Blue suits are becoming more and more popular, as blue is another classic color that can be worn in every season. Not to mention that they make for great business suits after your big day and can be worn with khakis or jeans for a more relaxed look. Navy suits especially pop in winter weddings against the stark white snow but also blend in really well with the greenery of summertime.

Tan is a great color for spring and fall weddings, but can also be worn year round. They are excellent for a boho fall wedding, it certainly worked for this stunner of a couple from our Park City wedding guide which you can view here. Add your flair with a printed tie to pull the look together!

Green has become more popular with grooms that are looking for a fun and different look. Although bold, green can be worn at any time of the year, and if you don’t want to go bold for the wedding opt for a green suit for your rehearsal dinner! We love how the emerald color of this groom’s suit pops!

A plaid suit gives us major Gatsby vibes! We love this look for fall and winter weddings as the plaid material tends to be made from wool and therefore it could get toasty if worn in the summer. See more of this dapper get up in our last Utah issue.

Now we know what you’re thinking, there is no way that your gonna get your fiance to agree to a pink suit. Believe us when we say that we are seeing more and more weddings with the groom douting a pink suit. Pink can complement your groom’s skin tone, florals, and even your venue. If you’re wanting to go the pink suit route, we suggest sticking to a spring or summer wedding to compliment the colorful spring flowers that have blossomed or a fall wedding to contrast with the fall leaves.

Along with pink, white can also scare off brides after all isn’t the bride supposed to be the only one in white. Although the clean lines a white suit or tuxedo jacket provide give a very modern look for the modern couple. We also love how this groom gets to stand out from his groomsmen dressed in black giving him the spotlight he deserves! See more of this classic wedding in the Estes Park wedding guide here.

Things to not forget to complete your wedding day look:

  1. Cuff Links – They’re an important detail that photographers often include in detail shots.
  2. Pocket Squares – Another important detail that your groom and groomsmen can often forget, but pull the look together.
  3. Steamer – We know you boys don’t even know what one of these things are but trust us, ask a bridesmaid or the mother of the groom or bride to steam your suits, your bride will be much happier seeing you walk down the aisle without any wrinkles! Purchase this one from Bed, Bath & Beyond!
  4. Dress Socks – Unless you’re doing fun socks as a group it’s important to not have white athletic socks peeking out the bottom of the hem of your pants. Purchase some custom fun socks from Etsy here.
  5. Proper Storage – If you don’t store your suit or tux properly before the big day, it will lose its shape in the shoulders and will look frumpy, and no one needs a frumpy suit!
