The groom and groomsmen’s look can be just as important as the bride’s. We provide some handy ideas to master the boho style.

Boho weddings are all the rage at the moment and with the emphasis on individuality and anything-but-the-norm, we offer a few tips on how the groom and his groomsmen can stay on trend and express themselves through their wedding day outfits.

Colour

A coloured suit or shirt can be a great way to add a touch of personality and keep to the colour scheme of the wedding. Think blues, greys and browns, or something a little brighter if you're looking to stand out.

You might want to let the season influence your colour choice too. Light, pastel colours are perfect to brighten up an outfit for a spring or summer wedding while deep reds and woody shades are ideal for those autumnal or winter occasions.

Patterns and Fabrics

Using different patterns and textures can be a brilliant way to create an individual look on your big day. Tweeds give a relaxed, gentry feel that is perfect for a barn or country house wedding. Velvet creates that dapper style and is a good way to incorporate a touch of class into your bohemian wedding. Combine a few different patterns and materials to create a really unique look for your big day.

The Tie

The tie is a major factor in any groom or groomsmen's attire but it can be just as effective by leaving it off as putting it on. Textures, patterns and colours are a great way to mix it up a bit, or maybe ditch the traditional and go down the Great Gatsby route with a classy bowtie instead. However you use it, a tie can certainly complete the look.

To really embrace that relaxed, laid-back atmosphere, how about ditching the tie altogether? It's a great choice for those rustic summer weddings and is a definite step away from the traditional formal wedding.

Ditch the jacket

To break from tradition, you can always do away with the suit jacket, replacing it with something a bit quirky, or with nothing at all.

Choosing to go without a jacket takes away a degree of formality and can also help to show off other parts of the outfit such as a sharp waistcoat or a pair of braces.

Trousers

There are so many ways to choose some trousers with a twist. Opt for a skinnier fit or slightly shorter leg length for a modern touch. Try some linen or lighter coloured trousers for a casual summer themed wedding. Or for that more down-to-earth vibe, a good pair of jeans can be an excellent choice.

Shoes

A great pair of shoes can finish of groom's outfit perfectly. Think about tearing up the dance floor in a pair of boots, burnished brogues or leather deck shoes to stand out from the crowd. Don't forget your funky socks too!
