I am always talking about how much I love bridesmaids in uncoordinated, mismatched, and different dresses. However, I thought it was a bit 1-dimensional of me to not include the men of the wedding world in this idea too. Just as much as we don’t want the ‘maids in a cloned array of boredom, the groomsmen too could have some fun and branch out from the monotone world of matching suits and tuxes.

So for this afternoon’s wedding inspiration post, I thought we could look at some grooms and groomsmen who dared to be different. Groomsmen with splashes of different colors, mismatched suits, or anything in between. Let’s do this.

Quite possibly one of the coolest colorful groomsmen attire spreads ever

See, the groomsmen don’t have to match either. Still looks rad.

Not ready to commit to something entirely mismatched or TOO many different colors? Well then maybe just the accents (ties, shoes, socks) are right for your groomsmen.

As always, we love reader submissions – please send us a shot from YOUR wedding if your groomsmen dared to be different or colorful!



  1. Groomsmen are SO neglected in blog land! I love this post!! Much like Bridesmaids I think they look awesome in non-matching outfits and I especially love the different colored shoes! I love the idea of the boys having some fun with their outfits!
