The groom and groomsmen usually wear dark suits or tuxedos in weddings. Tuxedos are traditional men’s wedding party outfits. However today modern wedding parties coordinate their men’s clothing with the wedding colors, such as, in your case blush and olive-green. If you prefer the groom & groomsmen to wear suits dark navy blue suits or navy pinstripe suits would look great in the Fall and work with your olive-green and blush colors. You can bring in the bridesmaids colors in the men’s shirts and/or ties. For example with dark navy suits the groomsmen can wear blue and white or olive-green and white stripe shirts with solid color ties or ties with two or the three of the wedding colors. The groom can wear a solid color shirt with a silk tie in a darker color than the shirt. The groom should wear the same suit but a different tie and shirt than the groomsmen. A sales associate can help you choose cool ties when you find the right suits. Experiment with shirt and tie combinations once you decide on your suit color. Tip: black shoes with navy suits.
Can a groom wear a suit instead of a tux?
Definitely grooms can wear a suit instead of a tux for the wedding ceremony. A suit is perfect for a casual wedding event or for a contemporary / modern looking wedding. Favorite color suits for grooms are charcoal, black, or navy blue worn with a white dress shirt and a solid-color or subtly patterned tie to dress it up. In warm climates a light color suit works well in a fabric such as linen for chic beach or country wedding venues. Whatever you choose to wear a suit or tux be sure it fits perfectly or visit a tailor.
