Blue Jeans

Particularly for a country or rustic wedding, having the groom and groomsmen all in blue jeans might go better with your theme than more traditional suits. Just make sure everything is pressed and hemmed correctly to stay casual, not sloppy.

Dress Practically

Casual groom attire ideas usually involve some degree of practicality, whether you are dressing for the weather or the landscape. For this rocky coastline elopement, the couple had to climb up and down a rocky hillside. When looking at both of your clothes for a remote elopement, make sure to plan for your "venue" and dress appropriately.

Wool Layers

For a casual winter wedding, have your groom skip the traditional suit and instead layer with a wool sweater and sportscoat. The overall effect is still dressed up, but it will also keep him warm for your snowy ceremony.

A Tie & Suspenders

If you need to stay cool at your summer wedding, simply skip the jacket and roll up his shirtsleeves. This stylish groom opted to accessorize with thin leather suspenders and a linen tie.

Eclectic Jacket

For boho or modern weddings with a casual dress code, opt for your groom to wear a classic button up shirt and pair it with a unique and stylish jacket. From earth-toned corduroy with elbow patches to bright tweed coats, encourage him to find one that represents his own personal style.
