Keep it close to the bone
When it comes to trends, especially about grooms, the cuts are primarily classic! But there is a propensity for suits to be tailored close to the body if possible so that it can give a leaner, and longer appearance! And can make the groom look more dashing and heart-throbbing in all the wedding photos! Well, for heavier grooms who do not want to attract the attention to the word parts of their bodies, the cuts can be easily adjusted giving them a much graceful look! Small strokes like a French tuck and darker tones in a wedding suit can trim down the appearance too. Furthermore, every groom wants to look good when the focus is put on the shoulder blades for an overall masculine and pleasing look.
Say Hello to Velvet!
Velvet is a trend with a serious staying power. For all the stunning and charming grooms who are planning to tie the knot between March and October, this trend is especially for you! There are endless colors of velvet blazers or jackets including burgundy, black, green, and navy, that grooms can perfectly pair with black lapel and black pants for a chic yet classic and dashing look!

We have also seen some colorful evolutions of velvet too though, including camel, terracotta, and gray-velvet spotted in grooms of Instagram and Pinterest!

Shirt and Tie Color-blocking
Although mix and match have always been trendy and edgy but have you ever thought about a white tie on a white shirt, or a black dickie bow on a black shirt, or a personal and all-time favorite, khaki on khaki?

Bold and Statement Checks
Checks reflect the charm of the old-Hollywood world, yet they are again back in trend! Grooms can go from full check suits to statement blazers with big and bold checks. Check patterns are back this season in a big way. The more flashy or oversized, the better they look on a groom. So, if you are a groom who is also thinking to wear checks on his wedding day but also wanted to keep his suit classy, you can always nod to the trend with a more subtle pattern, or try pairing your check suit with a waistcoat or a necktie!
Brocade- not only for brides
Who says brocades are only meant for bride’s wedding dresses? Well, gone are the days, when only brides used to wear brocade, as these days brocade is in for grooms also!
