There are only several cases in which the groom needs to wear something aside from a tuxedo.
That is, if the groom serves in the military, he can wear his uniform on his wedding day.
If the wedding has a distinct theme, the groom may need to wear a knight’s armor, or groom beach wedding attire like a pair of casual draw string, loose-fitting linen pants complimented with a linen Oasis or Hawaiian shirt. This outfit would be perfect for a beach wedding just ad sandals.
However, for most weddings, the groom needs to choose attire that is appropriate to the degree of formality of the occasion, suitable to the season, coordinated with the bridal gown, and reflective of the fashion preferences of the couple. Here are some recommendations that may help.
Some grooms prefer to have their attire custom-made while others find it more practical and economical to rent a tuxedo.
If the latter is the choice of your groom, it is best to investigate and compare shops to make sure that are reputable and
customer-oriented. That is, they would be willing to re-size a tuxedo without charging exorbitant fees.
The groom must schedule the renting of the tuxedo at least three months in advance. It is also recommended to use the same rent shop for the tuxedos of the groomsmen. The day before the wedding, the groom should make sure that everything fits, including his shoes. After the wedding, the best man is usually given the responsibility to return the tuxedos to the shop, since the groom is busy with his honeymoon.
The formality of the wedding will largely determine the wedding attire of the groom. Here is a guide:
