Yes, the bride is the center of attention, but as her right-hand man, all eyes are on the groom as well. And with the wide range of menswear available these days, there’s no reason grooms can’t show off their sartorial savvy. But just like finding your soul mate, choosing your wedding attire is all about complementing—rather than competing with—each other. For looks that work great together no matter your wedding style, check out our picks for suits and tuxes from Men’s Wearhouse that pair perfectly with our favorite dresses.

  1. Beachy Keen

    beach wedding dress and suit

    For Him: Saying “I do” on the beach means feeling the sun on your face and wind in your hair, so a semiformal or casual look is your best bet. A light-colored suit fits the bill and helps you stay cool under the hot sun. Pair it with a seersucker bow tie or anchor cuff links for a nautical touch, or for a more casual affair feel free to skip the tie (or even the jacket) altogether.

    For Her: A scalloped lace neckline and a classic high-waisted circle skirt keep this two-piece ensemble light and flowy—perfect for that seaside vibe. Plus the casual setting calls for a shorter length, making for easy maneuvering on the sand (or even wading in the waves).

  2. Formal Ballroom

    formal ballroom wedding dress and tuxedo

    For Him: Swanky digs call for fancy duds. At a black tie affair, only a traditional black tux will do. Worn with a wing or spread collar white shirt and a black vest or cummerbund, this look is timeless. For an ultra-formal evening, you can also up the ante with a white tie instead.

    For Her: The ballroom and the ball gown were literally made for each other. A tulle skirt of such epic proportions makes for some pretty serious twirling on the dance floor, while a rhinestone-studded inset and sash add an even more glam touch.

  3. Royal Romance

    royal wedding dress and tuxedo

    For Him: Whether your wedding is actually taking place in a castle (lucky you!) or you’re just hoping to capture that regal feel, a three-piece gray tuxedo gives off a modern Prince Charming vibe. Wear it with a long black, white or champagne silk tie and coordinating pocket square for an even more aristocratic look.

    For Him: Nothing says old-school Hollywood quite like a white dinner jacket. And if your wedding is pulling out all the stops, there’s no reason you shouldn’t look leading-man sharp.

  5. Modern Love

    modern wedding dress and navy tuxedo

    For Him: A navy tux is a cool spin on a classic, especially when coupled with a sleek, satin-edged lapel. Black patent shoes are a traditional choice, but if your wedding style is more fashion forward, consider finishing the look with a pair of cognac-colored shoes and a modern boutonniere made from feathers or succulents.

  6. Romantic Rustic

    romantic lace wedding dress and gray suit

    For Him: For a wedding with an outdoorsy feel (think: a barn or forest setting), a three-piece suit is in order. Light gray is a good choice to look dressed up but not too fussy. To match the natural surroundings, add a plaid tie and pocket square or even a printed shirt and solid bow tie.

  7. Preppy Pairing

    preppy wedding dress and suit

    For Him: The black suit is the epitome of classic American sportswear style. For a look that fits right in at the yacht club, pair it with a preppy patterned tie, like gingham or polka dot. If it’s a more casual setting (say, an outdoor daytime bash), you can even wear the suit jacket with a pair of khakis and a light blue shirt. And don’t forget some argyle socks.

  8. City Chic

    sleek wedding dress and tuxedo

    For Him: If your wedding takes place amid the bright lights and big glamour of a city backdrop, sleek and chic is the way to go. Try a black tuxedo with a satin-edged lapel worn with a polished black vest and tie. Or to switch up the look and opt for a white or silver vest instead. For a bit of bling, accessorize with diamond cuff links.
