Grooms, listen up! Today’s post is for you, and it’s all about predicted groomswear trends for 2017. Just like wedding dresses, suits go through different trends every single year and the styles are constantly changing.

Choosing your wedding suit can be just as difficult as choosing a wedding gown, and there are a number of different things that you need to consider. Think about what your wedding colour palette is, it may sound obvious but you don’t want to wear a bright blue suit at a purple wedding. Take into account what time of year you’re going to tie the knot. Are you going to incorporate your usual style into your wedding look? If you live in a pair of converses, why not wear them on your big day?


No matter what, it’s vital that you feel comfortable and confident in your wedding suit. If you don’t, you’ll look awkward in your photographs and you won’t be able to enjoy your day to its full potential. If you’re feeling puzzled about your wedding suit, read on to discover our helpful hints on what’s hot for 2017.

Time for Tweed

Tweed has been around for a few years, and it looks like it’s not going anywhere in 2017. Rustic and country barn wedding themes go hand in hand with a delightful tweed suit, and they really are the perfect pairing. Take a twist on the traditional tweed suit by opting for a waistcoat in a different colour or material. Much alike the mix and match trend that bridesmaids are loving, grooms have adopted this stylish approach to wedding suits.


Jewel Tones

Jewel wedding colour palettes have been a huge hit for Autumn 2016, and it looks like grooms are taking this trend into 2017. Luxurious suits in navy, emerald and burgundy are everywhere at the moment. Whether it’s high end or high street, you really can’t go wrong with a plush burgundy suit. Want to go all out with your wedding suit? Opt for a velvet jack in a jewel tone for extra extravagance.


Mix and Match

As mentioned previously, grooms are swaying from matching suits and embracing a mix and match style. Swap a monochromatic suit for something a little different. Keep it slick and understated, with a navy suit and a grey waistcoat. If you want to be bold, consider a tweed jacket with a velvet waistcoat. The options really are endless when it comes to mixing and matching three-piece suits, so have fun with it! It’s a great way to reflect your personality and individual style, and there really are no rules.


Stylish Groomswear

If you’ve opted for a blue wedding suit, why not dress your groomsmen in a variety of different blue hues. Groomsmen often don the same or a similar suit to the groom-to-be, but 2017 is all about playing with colours.  Dressing your groomsmen in a different shade will make sure you still look coordinated and part of the bridal party, it’s just a modern take on a traditional style. It allows for more freedom when it comes to choosing the wedding suits, and you can play around with a variety of colour combinations.


Electric Blue

Electric blue is the new pastel blue for 2017. This shade is a striking colour for a wedding suit and you’ll look seriously suave. Soften the look with a pastel tie in peach or pink, or be daring with a mustard yellow buttonhole. Again, you can get completely creative with this look and your accessories will help to finish it.

Time to Accessorise

Your accessories can really make or break your groomswear. Don’t fret – that’s where we come in! Opt for stylish accessories such as a braces, colourful socks or a pocket watch chain. A pocket watch is a wonderful partner for a wool or tweed suit. Groomsmen wearing braces and socks always look cool, and it’s creates the opportunity for some great wedding photographs.
