Grooms that Nailed Wearing Suspenders on their Wedding Day

At one time, when you thought suspenders, you thought Grandpa. These days, suspenders are back with a vengeance. Grooms are rocking these old school accessories on their wedding day and we couldn’t be happier.  We are loving the look and here are a few grooms that are nailing the trend.


The classic suspender and bow tie is always a good look.  This groom’s button boutonniere works fabulously with the overall look.

Mixing different patterns is so fun and this groom nails the trend.

These thin leather ones are a great way to dress up a plain white shirt.

Love how boldly these black stripped ones look against the crisp white shirt. Paired with the black tie – perfection!

Why should the groom only be the stylish one?

Don’t just start and end with suspenders. Finish off your look with a vest too!

Rather than dark suspenders with a light shirt, try light coloured suspenders with a darker shirt.

A patterned suspender with a bow tie and jacket is so sharp. We think his bride couldn’t agree more!

These grooms rocked the look on their wedding day and added their own unique twist to it. We hope this trend continues to stick around for a while, because we think it looks rather dapper! What do you think about a groom in suspenders?
