It might not be the colour that first comes to mind when planning your groomswear, but plum is becoming increasingly popular and it’s easy to see why.

A deep, romantic colour, it’s a masculine choice for a groom’s suit and combines well with grey, navy, brown or black. When it comes to co-ordinating with the rest of your wedding, plum is also a lovely choice for bridesmaids and a fabulous accent colour for flowers and decorations if you’re choosing a plum wedding theme.

This elegant outfit seems like the perfect place to start for all the men in suits in your bridal party. A crisp white shirt is the ultimate accompaniment and a slim black tie sets the scene for a city wedding.

For a similar look, these black lapels add a twist, and the buttonhole hints at a more rustic theme.

A classic three-piece gives this suit a more traditional look, an elegant choice for a classic wedding. We love the rose buttonhole, perfectly in keeping with such a beautiful bridal gown.

If you’d like to incorporate the plum colour but prefer to use it as an accent shade, choosing a plum waistcoat, tie and buttonhole is a great idea. This groom’s attire highlights just how perfectly the shade co-ordinates with pale grey for a spring or summer celebration.

For a slightly less formal wedding, choose a grey suit and a shirt with a subtle pattern.
