Grooms in Jeans: A Trend or a Travesty?

You've got your heart set on a gorgeous pin-striped Gucci three-piece for your groom, but he wants to wear his tuxedo T-shirt. You've got 5 million other things to worry about. What's a bride to do?

Believe it or not, celebrities like Harrison Ford, who donned Wranglers for his outdoor nuptials to Calista Flockhart, are setting a new, more casual fashion trend in outdoor wedding attire that has some definite potential: jeans for the groom. When done right, denim as wedding attire can complement your outdoor wedding in ways you might never have expected. When done wrong, however—as we will soon see—jeans can be a bit of a distraction. To help you out, here are a few groomsmen who hit the nail on the head, and a few others who weren't even working on the same building!

Grooms in Jeans: Looks We Like

Look 1: These guys have it! They're pairing their denim with fancier vests, shirts and caps that give them an art-school edge. Jeans complement the look rather than detract from it. Be sure your guy buys the right fit, though—some of these grooms look a little on the uncomfortable side!

Look 2: Jewel and her husband, who is an actual rodeo cowboy, have used denim in the best way possible. It contributes to the overall style of the ceremony itself—not to mention that a Western-style wedding on the beach is incredibly romantic!

Look 3: If all the groomsmen can be persuaded to wear jeans—and, let's face it, most of them probably wouldn't say "no"—the look can actually be very uniform and classy. Just make sure their shirts and jackets are corresponding, and nobody wears denim of a different wash.

Grooms in Jeans: Looks We Loathe

Look 1: Whew! Thank goodness this is just a Halloween costume! But, for the record, a groom in jeans and a groom in overalls are two very different creatures. Jeans can be classy, but overalls are just too casual.

Look 2: This is an example of color coordination taken way too far! Your groom's outfit should not look like a jumpsuit. (Besides, how likely is it that he'll keep all that white garb clean if you're marrying outdoors?) You also may want to gently suggest your groom rethink the Native American feathers and arm bands on your big day.

Look 3: We're all for expressing individuality here, but the groom in the second photo is a little much! If you and your groom are going to take the denim plunge, he should find a pair without holes in them. Remember, there's a line between casual and too casual. If you can integrate denim while sprucing it up with other accents (such as clean shoes!), then you'll be set to go.

It really depends on the feel of the whole event, if wearing jeans is the right decision. As for Harrison Ford, he made it look snazzy as it corresponds to the whole feel of the outdoor wedding! Thinking outside the box for the best event of your life will make it more memorable.

The pearl necklace is adorable! I would love to have my pearl necklace wear that. I love the black pearl set, really wish we sent for it since it's sooo cute! big hoop earrings we bought about 1.5 months in advance since she probably won't grow too much in that time period.

I rarely drop responses, however i did a few searching and wound up here "Grooms in Jeans: A Trend or a Travesty?".

And I do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or does it look like some of the remarks come across like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you list of every one of all your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Aw, I think the man who wears denim pants on their outdoor wedding is more masculine than other men. For me, it is because men who wear denim pants are attractive and "macho". That is really the word that exactly I want to say. I think I will request my hubby to marry again with me and wear that denim pants, or the beach linen pants that are perfect for a beach wedding. What do you think?
