35 Real Grooms who Looked Incredible On Their Wedding Day

We spend a lot of time fawning over gorgeous real bride style here at One Fab Day, but just as often you’ll hear us raving about a groom’s slick accessories or clever colour combo, so we thought it was time that we showed the guys some love! The key to great groom style is finding a trustworthy groomswear brand (we’ve recommended some amazing suppliers here!) and incorporating your personality into your wedding day look, so really, there’s no better source of groom style inspiration than real grooms! The grooms in this post cover everything from laid-back to formal attire, from high street to bespoke, so we’re certain you’ll find something you love. Let’s get started!

Groom Style Inspiration

1. Ally and Andrew gave serious Gatsby groom style in complementary jewel-tones velvet tuxedos and oversized blow ties for a vintage effect. Check out those exotic buttonholes too!

2. Kyle looked of the autumnal season in a deep burgundy velvet tuxedo! Accessories such as an engraved watch, a pocket watch and a matching velvet tie, meant Kyle was nothing short of dapper when it came to his groom style!

3. Real groom Shane’s impeccable suit is a classy stone shade, and is the slick Harold jacket from Benetti Menswear! Paired with a deep navy waistcoat and tie it’s a light and breezy choice for the sunny September celebrations.

4. Stephen chose a tweed three-piece by Magee 1866 for the big day and dressed his groomsmen in complementary three-piece suits by Benetti. What a stylish trio!

5. Love colour? A deep burgundy contrasted with bright blue can look just as smart as classic blues and greys, as proven by real groom Colm.

6. Checks are always statement making, and an oversized print, like the one Brendan wore on his big day, is a great way to have fun with your wedding-day look!

7.  Dane’s navy tweed suit was purchased on the high street. His quirky shirt completes this entire look and vibe, along with his contrasting pocket square and brown leather shoes.

8. Seamus subverted trends with his double-breasted, pinstripe suit, which is giving us seriously cool 80s vibes!

9. Mark our words, green is going to be the next big colour in groomswear! We love the bold, forest green hue that real groom Gavin chose for his big day.

10. We’re seeing lots of pink wedding suits lately, and we’re here for it! Jamie’s two-piece is perfect inspiration for grooms who want to make a bold statement.

11. If you’re not quite ready for a pink suit, you can always make a subtle nod to the trend with pink accessories! Daryl’s pale pink bow tie and pocket square look particularly fetching against the dark green of his tweed suit.

12. All it takes is a statement tie to take a wedding-day outfit to the next level. We love how Jason showed his personality with this abstract print.

13. Sometimes, you’ve just got to go all the way with your wedding look! And we can all agree that Dan looked amazing in his tuxedo and polka dot bow tie.

14. We love how Scottish groom Dave styled his kilt, pinning tartan onto the lapel of his jacket to tie the whole look together. The tartan tie is a nice touch, too!

15. We have not stopped swooning over James and Anderson’s groom style since we featured their real wedding! Their contrasting Paul Smith suits are just so striking!

16. Real groom Jim effortlessly dressed down his look in a Louis Copeland & Sons tweed suit, open crisp white dress shirt, blush buttonhole and printed pocket square.

17. A bow tie is an easy way to inject your wedding day look with colour! We love Gavin’s fun checkerboard and polka dot number with his  Louis Copeland & Sons suit!

18. Velvet fabrics and tuxedo-style lapels are two trends we never tire of here at One Fab Day, and real groom Hugo managed to tick both boxes with his suave wedding-day look!

19. Mix and match groom style is pefect for a relaxed summer wedding, as proven by real groom Luke, who matched a green blazer with classic chinos.

20. Red groomswear always looks so high-end! We are big fans of the rich burgundy shade John chose for his suit – the skinny tie gives the whole look a retro feel.

21. Okay, so not every groom is as daring a dresser as Max, who looked sensational in an Alexander McQueen suit and Gucci tie on his big day. Because the skull print on his suit and the wolf print on his tie are pretty subtle, he was able to make a big statement while still looking very much like a groom!

22. We often hear from grooms who want to wear trainers on the big day, and here, Neill shows us how it’s done! For his destination wedding in Italy he paired chinos with suspenders and a bow tie for a look that’s laid-back and weather-appropriate.

23. Sean chose a navy blue suit and golden tie that added an extra pop of bright colour to the palette of this beautiful autumnal wedding.

24. Real groom Mike’s outfit is unquestionably full of personality and style. The mulberry suit paired with a black satin bow complemented his velvet black shoes and top hat.

25. John and Emmet are hitting on three major trends with their expertly co-ordinated wedding-day looks; oversized check, burgundy and forest green. Opting for the same suit pattern in different colours is such a great same-sex styling tip!

26. By following a colour palette of blues and browns, real groom Mark was able to look smart in breezy summer separates.

27. Dan ensured he was giving easy sumer style vibes with his cream linen suit, open shirt and brightly colours buttonhole. Ideal for a destination wedding!

28. If you’re expecting sunny weather, it’s a good idea to think about how your groomswear will look without the jacket. Matt kept it simple with a white shirt, neutral waistcoat and olive green trousers, and did you catch the handkerchief in his back pocket? A fun alternative to a pocket square!

29. For their big day, Michael and James wore three-piece suits in different shades with matching ties. Colourful buttonholes also tied the whole look together.

30. You can’t go wrong with tweed at a winter wedding! We love how Dan dressed his suit by Magee for the season, adding a neat, wool scarf for extra warmth.

31. There’s no reason why grooms should have to stick to checks and polka dots! We love the subtle romance of Ben’s heart-print tie and pocket square!

32. Grooms Richie and Hafidzee gave a very stylish nod to both their Malaysian and Scottish roots with their big day ensembles to stunning effect. We love the purple colour scheme bringing both looks together.

33. Boho groom Matt completely tore up the rulebook with his groomswear look, which is just what we like to see! A cool vintage jacket or hat is a great way to add personality.

34. The velvet groomswear trend isn’t going anywhere! Barry’s look is foolproof – he styled his tuxedo blazer with black slacks and a black waistcoat for a splash of luxury.

35. Now this is a look that pretty much every groom can get on board with – David’s blue three-piece suit and oversized check tie combo is super smart, and works for almost any style of the wedding day.
