What to wear as a groom

Groomsman attire guide part 4

Groomsman etiquette, number 1:

Now, let’s assume you are the groomsman and you wonder what to wear. Well, your best option is to reach out to the bride and groom and figure out what it is that they want. Since you are part of the wedding party, chances are, you know them quite well and you have a good understanding of how formal they are or what kind of wedding it is going to be.

Groomsman etiquette, number 2:

Obviously, you do not want to embarrass yourself and you want to do whatever it is that they want you to wear. Now, personally, I hate wearing a rental tuxedo but if my best man wants me to wear that, I would swallow my pride and wear it simply because I want to make him happy and it is his day. Keep that in mind, you are there for them and not the other way around.

Groomsman etiquette, number 3:

That being said, if you are unhappy with the choices they make, it is best to communicate that very early on in the process when changes can actually be made. Once all the other groomsmen have bought the same thing, you cannot just change everything without incurring a lot of costs. If you have an issue, bring it up at first. Definitely, do not say anything the day of or close to the wedding, that is just terrible behavior.

Groomsman etiquette, number 4:

As the groomsman, you are different than other guests but at the same time, you never want to make the groom or the bride look not as dapper as you or not as well dressed like you. Try to tone it down, try not to get all fancy with your tie knots or something like that.
