It’s time for another wedding planning question! We’re answering this one from bride-to-be, Melissa. She asks,
“I’m planning a spring wedding and I can’t decide what the groomsmen should wear. We are planning a more casual outdoor wedding, but I still want the guys to be dressed up. Do you have any more relaxed or casual groomsmen attire ideas?”
Casual Groomsmen Attire Idea
For a more laid-back feel, skip the formal tuxedo and suit. Instead, pick a light colored pair of dress pants, a white dress shirt, a pair of suspenders, and a simple skinny black necktie. For even more comfort, have the gentlemen wear a pair of matching classic slip-ons, like Vans. Here is a perfect overall look:
In this example, the groom even has his own look: he added a jacket, vest, and nixed the necktie. You can find handmade (+ custom) suspenders, bow ties, and neckties on Etsy, as well as in our Marketplace.

I should also note that you’ll probably win the Bride of the Year award from the groomsmen, since they’ll be totally cool and comfortable throughout the entire day!
