Trends: Grooms & Ushers

Everyone talks a lot about the latest wedding trends for brides, but what about the groom and his ushers? We’ve taken a look at the top trends that are going to be front and centre for the 2019 wedding season. 

As with everything in 2019, the buzz words are bright and bold. So, for the groom who wants to let the threads do the talking think bright suits, rakish waistcoats and punchy cufflinks.

Whether you fancy head to toe tweed, festival gear, or tail coats are more your thing it’s time to let your choice of outfit show a little personality on your big day.

If the colour theme for your wedding is already picked and a colourful suit is out of the question, what about adding a bit of texture with corduroy or velvet.

Whatever you decide the general consensus is that it is all about the slim fit. For both wedding outfits and everyday wear - gone are the days of baggy trousers with belts holding them up. Straight and tapered trouser legs with a tailored jacket will give off an air of athleticism and style.

At last, the trainer trend has taken a back seat, save them for the honeymoon. Dependant on your choice of outfit black or brown leather shoes are the order of the day, unless of course you are feeling bold, in which case a pair of monochrome velvet slippers with your initials on wouldn’t go amiss!

When it comes to your ushers there are numerous ways to ensure that they stand out from the rest of your guests (and look on point for the photographs).

Matching cufflinks, buttonholes and ties are a simple and less expensive way to differentiate, meaning that the ushers can dress in their own choice of outfit but are all recognisable.

If you would prefer a little more formality but don’t want to blow the budget, or ask them to fork out for a whole new outfit, matching waistcoats are a great option. With all of the ushers in waistcoats of either the same colour or complimentary colours you’ll be sure they stand out from the rest.

Hopefully, your ushers will not only do a sterling job celebrating your forthcoming nuptials with you at your stag do, they will also be on hand to keep the pre-wedding nerves at bay and ensure that all of your guests are well looked after.
