Tuck the Tux Away: Casual Groom Styles Are In!
Put that tux back in the closet! With couples taking a more laid-back approach to their weddings, lavish duds are taking a backseat to more casual looks (think: faded Levi's, brightly colored corduroys and suspenders). We love this idea for a casual backyard affair, a rustic country celebration or a cool urban soiree at an historic industrial space. The key to pulling off this look? Keeping it polished. That means sneakers are definitely out — go for a nice pair of oxfords or brogues instead — and shirt tails should be smartly tucked in. Add a tie, vest or blazer to pull it all together (we promise they'll win you some extra style points!). Don't forget — balancing out your outfit is crucial. The last thing you want is to look sloppy, this is a pretty monumental moment after all. If you plan on rocking denim, make sure you dress it up with more put-together details.
