11 Tuxedo Alternatives for the Renegade Groom

For the traditional groom, getting suited up for the wedding day is easy.  Their bride picks out a tux, and the groom can just saunter into the closest Men’s Warehouse and rent it.

But some fashion-forward grooms actually want to be a little more involved in choosing their wedding wear. They want to look suave and cool—it’s their wedding day too, after all.

We found 11 dapper grooms to inspire those who want to wear something a little more renegade than a traditional tuxedo:

1. Kilted Cutie

By pairing a kilt with matching green accoutrements, this groom proves that real men wear kilts.

2. Eloping with Elvis

This Rock & Roll couple eloped in Vegas in their sneakers. While the bride is wearing a sparkly, disco ball inspired dress… we’re more focused on the groom’s white wedding suit.

3. Lounging in Love
