Ideas for rustic wedding style
Guys, we’re happy to tell you that you’re now spoilt for choice when it comes to your wedding day look. Forget the thought of having to wear a stuffy old suit that makes you feel uncomfortable and don’t worry about spending the day in an outfit you don’t like. Modern grooms know that when it comes to the big day, anything goes. If you’re a country groom, you’ve got even more choice than most so here are some country wedding ideas that you really shouldn’t miss:
Remember that your suit doesn’t have to match. Pick out mismatched pieces for that smart casual look.

Embrace waistcoats. These are perfect for country grooms and if you opt for a waistcoat, you can ditch the jacket if you want to.

Brogues are the perfect shoes for the rustic wedding style. Choose a colour that works with your outfit and don’t be afraid to add in some bright laces for a pop of colour.

Patterns, fabrics and much more
When it comes to fabric, tweed is the ultimate choice for the country groom. It’s totally in keeping with the setting and works at any time of year. We love seeing tweed jackets or waistcoats along with trousers in another fabric. If you don’t fancy tweed, pick heavier, more robust fabrics that will look at home in a country setting.

Country grooms definitely need to work some patterns into their outfits too. Checked or paisley patterned shirts are always a top choice and even floral prints can work in the summer. If patterns aren’t your thing then colour is a must-have. Choose something that works with the overall look of the day and don’t be afraid of bold tones, especially in winter. Rich greens and berry reds are brilliant at this time of year but in summer, lighter natural shades are perfect.

Adding lots of texture to your look is important point so add this to your list. If you’ve mixed tweed with cotton, why not add in a woollen tie, a chunky leather belt and make sure that your buttonhole is finished with twine.

Finishing touches for the country groom
If your wedding is full of fabulous country wedding ideas, then why not include some of these in your outfit too? You could wear a buttonhole that’s made of foliage, berries or feathers instead of traditional flowers for example. You could pick out a colour from the flower arrangements and match this with a pair of braces or socks.

A country groom should still look sharp and that’s how you make sure that the mismatched, rustic look is still suitable for such a big occasion. Press that shirt, polish those shoes, get rid of any creases in trousers, waistcoats or jackets and make sure that you’re looking your absolute best.

Also, don’t forget your cologne! It’s great to wear something special for your wedding day so that you can always remember the occasion through scent. Now’s the perfect time to treat yourself to something new and go for a cologne that’s in keeping with the day. It’s the final finishing touches that will make sure you’re totally wedding ready (and downright irresistible too!)
