Sure, it's the bride that draws all of the attention, but you don't want the groom looking sloppy or hastily dressed either. The groom's attire should complement the bride's without overshadowing her. Below are some ideas:
Beach Wedding. Casual is the rule for a beach wedding. The groom might wear white pants and a white silk shirt, a light-colored suit, or for more formal weddings a tuxedo. For Polynesian weddings, the groom might consider a traditional loose-fitting, white, embroidered, Hawaiian wedding shirt over white pants. Wear sandals -- or go barefoot --f or a wedding in the sand.
European Weddings. A lot depends on what country you've chosen for your wedding vows, but generally, European weddings are more formal than beach or resort weddings. A dark suit is proper for an afternoon wedding; Wear a tuxedo for a formal, evening wedding. If you're of Scottish descent, consider wearing a traditional kilt and jacket for a Highlands wedding.
Of course, if the groom is in the military, a uniform is correct and elegant no matter where the wedding is taking place.
Destination wedding attire for him can be found in a number of outlets, from department stores to online retailers to destination wedding planners. Many such firms sell clothing as well as travel planning services.
