Mismatched Groomsmen | SouthBound Bride

Good morning, friends! I have another fabulous wedding coming your way later, but first I thought I would change things up a bit and bring you some inspiration for the boys. Didn’t think bridesmaids were going to have all the mismatching fun, did you? Seriously though, this is one trend that will make your future husband (and his best friends) love you – allowing them to express themselves a bit and to be comfortable in what they are wearing is bound to be a huge plus. Like the same trend for girls, there are lots of different levels of mismatch, from having the same suit and different accessories, to having different looks for the groom and the groomsmen, to a general colour or style guideline, to a full-scale mix and match. What you choose will depend on practical aspects like hire versus purchase, as well as the overall style of your big day (this works particularly well for vintage or boho weddings, for example). And here are some pretty pics to get you started. (Pretty pics? That feels weird when they’re all boys. Handsome pics.)

  1. A ragtag bunch of guys: Bill with the insouciant flip of his hair. Mark hates suit jackets – long sleeves for him. Dave loves suspenders. And Mike? We’ll let’s just say if Mike isn’t wearing a 3 piece and sunglasses, he’s underdressed.

    You can try and control them. You can try and tell them what to wear. But they’re his guys.

    You can both be ok with letting them dress how they want. Great photos. Fun on the dancefloor. And maybe, just maybe, when Mike get’s teary-eyed at the vow exchange, you’ll know why your guy chose him to the best man.

    A bunch of characters them all.

    They are….

    the groomsmen.
