1. Natural Suit
Sport a light natural-colored suit to keep with your low-key, bohemian theme. A pop of color with a bright and playful boutonniere that matches your partner's bouquet will complete your wedding day look.
2. Mismatched Vests
Have your groomsmen select their own wool vests for a rustic look that'll ensure a classy style without being too matchy-matchy.
3. Feathery Boutonniere
A personally designed boutonniere is a fabulous accessory to dress up your lapel. Add a whimsical touch to your formal suit with patterned feathers and bright wildflowers, or use a favorite fishing hook to make your boutonniere festive and totally you.
4. Vintage Vest
A vintage vest paired with a white collared shirt will add a gypsy-esque vibe to your wedding's rugged charm. Consider a patterned fabric, like plaid, to give texture to your look.
5. Neutral Tones
Allow the natural elements surrounding your waterside ceremony to take the lead and wear khakis for a casual and carefree style.
6. Dark Plaid
Take the nontraditional approach to your style with a checkered button-down and solid colored tie. Dark colored plaid is a striking but simple pattern that will look great at your outdoor ceremony.
7. Leather Accessories
A dark leather belt is a simple accessory that will fit your casual, woodsy theme while maintaining a very put-together look. Remember: Try to match the color of your shoes to your belt.
8. Floral Tie
Planning a simple elopement? Go for a casual look that complements your partner's dress, then add a floral tie for a playful pattern.
9. Bolo Ties
Forget bow ties and traditional neckties—bolo ties are the perfect accessory for a Western-chic wedding. Plus, neckties are unique gift ideas for your groomsmen.
10. Pastel Ties
What's a spring wedding without pastels? A subtle hint of color with a soft-hued tie is sure to look charming at your woodsy wedding.
11. Elbow Patches
Elbow patches are a timeless fashion trend that will give a vintage vibe to your wedding style. Consider bright, patterned patches for your wool jacket for a playful look.
12. Organic Boutonniere
Mimic your wedding day style to the organic venue surrounding it. Incorporate simple wildflowers and greenery into your boutonniere for a natural look with unique textures.
13. Dark Khakis
Opt for a pair of dark khaki pants for a laid-back country wedding. Khakis can pair with just about anything, so go with your favorite gray vest and tie or ditch the extra layers for an even more relaxed style.
14. Burlap Bow Tie
Take to your beach wedding ceremony in alternative neckwear. Burlap as your wedding accessory of choice will be a perfect yet unexpected touch to your breezy, bohemian style.
15. Rolled Cuffs
Roll up your cuffs for steampunk style. Incorporate brightly colored vests and patterned socks for a whimsical touch.
Suspenders are a classic accessory for any groom or groomsmen to sport on the wedding day. Pair them with worn-out boots for a low-key event or wear embroidered suspenders over a crisp, collared shirt for a festive occasion.
17. Skinny Ties
Add a '60s touch to your style with a skinny tie and a tie bar. Consider pairing a bold red tie with dark blue jeans for a stylish contrast.
