So the big day's approaching and it's time to get your wedding style sorted so you look the part, but do you know your options? There's more choice than ever when it comes to what to wear when you tie the knot, so take a long hard look at yourself and see what groom style suits you. When it comes down to it, there are three main points to consider: Is this style right for me? Does it match the formality of the day? Will it work with what my partner is wearing?
So, keep those in mind while we take a look at the different styles out there and see if we can't help you find the right look for your wedding day.
The traditional or formal style is still by far the most common choice when it comes to the groom. Tradition dictates that a morning suit (or tails) are the only attire acceptable on your wedding day, but nowadays ‘formal' includes two and three-piece suits as well so you've got a few more options at your disposal. This style best suits a grand setting (think castles or elegant country houses) and a day that ticks off all those amazing traditions.

A boho groom is one who wants to do things a bit differently. We're not talking anything too wacky or out there, but we're also definitely not talking traditional morning suits either. You can try working with different colours or alternative materials to create a unique look, or even consider ditching the jacket for a slightly more relaxed look. You can choose to make as big or as little a statement as you like (think colourful knitted tie compared to emerald green suit) so really it's up to you and your personality. Think contemporary country houses or stylish barns for this style.

This groom's style is definitely for the more relaxed man, and let's face it, not everyone looks fully at ease in a formal suit. Just like with the traditional style, there are different levels of casualness that you could consider for your special day. Think about ditching the tie, the jacket or the formal shoes, and bring in braces and, trainers, and even shorts depending on how chilled you want to be and if your venue suits. Laid-back barns are perfect for this kind of look, but just make sure your partner is on board with this level of informality too before you commit!

Definitely a popular choice recently that's much less formal than traditional styles yet still smart and stylish on your big day. It's a great way to look a bit different for your wedding and obviously works perfectly at a country barn venue or rural country house. Think tweeds, check shirts, waistcoats and neutral colours for an awesome rustic look. It works well for anyone who wants to combine style with a relaxed vibe, as well as anyone who has the country in their heart!
