Identify The Wedding's Primary & Secondary Colors

No shock here, but the first thing you want to do is set out the color palette and overall theme of your wedding. The colors you choose are going to be ubiquitous on the day, so you want to make sure they’re perfect. Pinterest and google are a great starting point for finding inspiration and visualising your preferences.

With niche custom brands like Sartoro offering many colors to choose from, narrowing your palette down can be daunting. Start by identifying primary and secondary colors. We recommend aiming for around 2-4 colors to make up your final palette. This gives you flexibility and enough room to settle on colors you both love.

Limit The Primary Color To The Groomsmen OR Bridesmaids

Once you’ve decided on your palette, it’s likely your primary color will be used for either the bridesmaid dresses or the wedding parties suits. We recommend avoiding using that same color for both, opting instead for creating a balanced contrast between the groomsmen and bridesmaids.

Now bear in mind that neutral colors for the suits are always going to be easier to coordinate, and bridesmaids dresses tend to have more colorful options. Blue, black, and gray suits are always a safe bet - but don't feel like you have to limit your options. Just remember the more unique your choice, the more you'll have to pay attention to how to coordinate the colors.

#1 - Green Wedding Suits Are In Style

Green wedding suits have surged in popularity and become a top choice for wedding parties, offering a perfect blend of uniqueness and sophistication. The allure of green lies in its subtle departure from the conventional blues, making it a refreshing and distinctive choice for grooms and groomsmen. It strikes a harmonious balance between individuality and formality, ensuring that your wedding attire stands out without veering into the realm of extravagance.

One of the key reasons green wedding suits are in vogue is their ability to introduce a touch of novelty into the wedding scene. While blue suits are timeless classics, green adds a captivating twist that captures attention without overshadowing the bride's gown. This fresh choice allows the groom and groomsmen to express their personalities while maintaining an elegant, formal appearance.

So, if you're on the hunt for groomsmen suit ideas that combine style, uniqueness, and sophistication, green wedding suits are an excellent choice that ticks all the boxes. Below are our favorites, and there are several other green options available in Sartoro's green suits collection.

2. A Neutral Colored Groomsmen Suit Pops In It's Own Way

Neutral tones, such as tan and beige wedding suits, have also carved quite a niche for the modern grooms and groomsmen, and it's not hard to see why. These shades offer a timeless elegance with a contemporary twist that can perfectly complement a wide range of wedding themes and color palettes. 


What makes these neutral colors so fantastic as groomsmen suits is their sheer versatility. Whether you're exchanging vows in a rustic barn or having a sleek city celebration, tan and beige suits serve as a perfect backdrop, standing out by their absence of a strong color rather than the opposite. This retains an air of sophisticated simplicity and distinction.


And the best part? They'll work with almost any primary color in your wedding theme. So whatever you've chosen for the bridesmaids dresses, a neutral tone is sure to compliment them well. Below are some popular options, and you can find more in our collection of tan custom suits.

3. Bold Windowpane Suits For A Standout Wedding Look

Windowpane suits, while not as mainstream as some other options, hold a special appeal for those with a bold and unique fashion sense. If you're an individual looking to make a statement on your wedding day, a windowpane suit might just be the perfect choice for you.


Featuring fine intersecting lines that create a grid-like design, these suits immediately set the wedding party apart from the crowd. They exude a sense of confidence and style, making them an excellent pick for grooms and groomsmen suits to showcase style in a daring yet elegant way. Their distinctive designs speaks to an appreciation for fine tailoring and a keen eye for fashion. Windowpane wedding suits are a keen choice for grooms who want to be remembered not only for their love but also for their impeccable style.


Windowpanes come in a variety of styles, with the main consideration outside of the primary color being whether the panes are bold or subtle. Either can be a great choice, and we've highlighted some top choices below - you'll find a whole lot more in our windowpane suits collection

4. Embrace Luxury in a Formal Custom Tuxedo

Choosing a tuxedo as the outfit of choice for your wedding party is a timeless and sophisticated decision that exudes an air of elegance and formality. Tuxedos are meticulously crafted with luxurious materials, featuring satin lapels, buttons, and an optional matching satin stripe down the trousers.


The attention to detail elevates the overall aesthetic - when you don a tuxedo on your wedding day, you're not just dressing up; you're making a statement about the significance of the occasion.


Whether you're planning a black-tie affair or a more relaxed, intimate gathering in a garden, a well-fitted tuxedo ensures you and your wedding party will look sharp and timeless in any backdrop, making it a safe bet for couples who want a consistently elegant look throughout their celebration.


Expanded Color Options

With today's style trends, the classic black tuxedo is no longer the only option. View a range of others in our tuxedo collection.

5. Dress It Down With A Casual Blazer & Chinos

Groom and groomsmen outfits don't have to be limited to suits or tuxedos. Opting for blazers and chinos for your wedding party offers a modern and still stylish alternative to traditional formal wear. By ensuring everyone in the party is in the same jacket and pants, the cohesive look is still polished enough for wedding vibes while retaining a more laid back, comfortable appearance, making them ideal for couples aiming for a more laid-back or outdoor wedding.

The balanced contrast between the jacket and pants allows the groom and groomsmen to embrace a relaxed and comfortable feel, creating an inviting and approachable atmosphere for your celebration. The most common option is to take a strong color jacket with a neutral pair of pants, and that is what we always recommend. 

Sartoro's collection of over 100 blazers and 100 pants offers a range of choices to fit any style wedding, and our team of stylists is standing by to help with difficult style choices.
