What do you think of the leather groomsmen suspenders trend? We’re helping one of our brides with a question she has on the style, the trend, and where to buy leather groomsmen suspenders that will work for her groomsman attendants as well as the ring bearers.
Here is the question we received from bride-to-be, Audrey, whose fiancé, Joel, is looking for leather suspenders to outfit his groomsmen. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline, My fiancé Joel and I are planning our wedding and he wants to get leather groomsmen suspenders. Our theme is rustic and we’re planning an outdoor reception and ceremony. What do you think of leather suspenders for groomsmen vs. traditional bowties and suspenders? I like the look but I’m worried it won’t be formal enough. And do you even know where to buy leather groomsmen suspenders? I really need pairs of suspenders for the entire groomsmen group including the two ring bearers. Thanks so much.”
Hi Audrey! Great question. In response directly to the not being formal enough aspect, based on your rustic, outdoor wedding in the summer, I’d say that leather groomsmen suspenders fit right in! Your theme and tone of the wedding are actually spot-on with the style. If you both like the style, go for it! It sounds like a great combination to me. I would pair the leather groomsmen suspenders with navy blue or gray pants and a bow tie in a color to coordinate with the bridesmaids.
Now, if you were planning a more formal wedding, say a grand ballroom event and it was indoors and it had a very formal and elegant color palette, I would probably err on the side of caution and recommend something more formal such as tuxedos and jackets, bowties, dress shoes — the whole nine yards. :)
But leather groomsmen suspenders for an outdoor, summertime wedding with a laid-back rustic feel? Now that sounds incredibly fitting. :)
Your other question on where to buy leather groomsmen suspenders, that’s an easy one, too. Online! You can buy leather suspenders for groomsmen and the groom online from The Bold Bow Tie, one resource that we would shop ourselves. Personally, I’ve been eyeing a pair of these leather suspenders for Andrew because I know he’d love them. So that’s one right off the bat I can provide as a go-to.
With TheBoldBowTie there is one huge bonus you’ll love about this shop, in addition to how awesome they look. And that is their size range.
They have kids’ sizes all the way up to adults, so you will get matching groomsmen leather suspenders that coordinate perfectly with the ring bearers.
These leather suspenders range from 6-month-old size to Big & Tall for adults. You can see the options and measurements here.
They offer leather suspenders sets, which come with bow ties; or, you can buy leather groomsmen suspenders only and skip the bow tie (great for couples who already have a necktie or bowtie selected from elsewhere).
This navy blue bow tie and leather suspenders set is a popular combination. I like the way the blue pairs with the Cognac color of leather.
Another option, great for your outdoor summer wedding: mustard! Yes, this shade of yellow is in-style and pairs beautifully with brown leather groomsmen suspenders, just like these.
This navy seersucker bow tie is perfect for summer!
Ooh, a soft leather, paired with brown leather suspenders: a great color combination.
If you love a garden floral pattern, here is a great style for the groomsmen.
A classic bow tie in black is always in style! See it paired below with brown leather suspenders.
Dusty rose is a stylish choice this season and we love it on bridesmaids; here is a great shade of rose for groomsmen to wear.
And last but not least, sage! Here it is in a solid, followed by a bow tie with sage and floral.
These colors are just the beginning! For more color combinations and leather suspenders sets for groomsmen, along with kids sizes and fun bow ties the ring bearers can wear to set themselves apart, check out the shop here.
And as one more option, if you’re searching for personalized groomsmen suspenders, you can get them from NickLeatherShop. These leather suspenders sets for weddings are popular to give as groomsmen gifts they can wear on the day of the wedding — and beyond. Put a nickname, initials, monogram, design, etc.
