While people tend to make the wedding day all about the bride, allow us to remind you that this is your day too. All eyes are also on the groom, as you'll stand hand in hand at the altar, and pose for photos that will undoubtedly be hung above your mantle for years to come. What you decide to wear alongside your bride is just as important as the gown she chooses for herself, so make it a good one. And we won't beat around the bush; there's a lot of options to choose from when it comes to groom's fashion.
There are morning suits, evening suits, formal suits, casual suits—even shorts suits—and they come in silks, satins, velvets, and lightweight linens, as well as heavy tweeds. We told you, it's a lot! But before you go adding "groom's suit" to your S.O.'s to-do list, let us help kickstart your search and run a few styles by you first.

What's most important is the style and fit of a suit. With so many options out there, grooms should always be sure to choose a comfortable and flattering look for their wedding day and beyond.
