The tradition of the colour white being exclusive to wedding dresses, as it symbolises purity, began in 1840 with the marriage of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom. It quickly became a world rule, which Brazil still adheres to today. This neutral color stands out in the midst of the wedding decoration and in front of the guests dressed in other shades and, even with the possibilities of the protagonist opting for another color, such as nude tones, off white and pearl, which are already more common, white is still considered hers.

But does that apply to the groom? Dark-toned suits like black tuxedos, navy blue suits or dark grey are more tradical, but that doesn’t stop the bride and groom wishing to use a clear tone or even white. They can, and here we’ll tell you more about the style.

Running from the obvious

It is no surprise that the white suit for the groom is not very common in Brazil, which causes strangeness and denial at the time, being a motive for controversy and even news about it when he is a famous man who chooses to marry the color. However, as everything renews itself with time, like the colored wedding shoes, which no longer cause so much surprise, many modern and stripped down couples, who want to escape the obvious and the traditional, are choosing the white cI love the color of them both. In this case, the pair takes the risk of other people’s comments and rules of etiquette to enforce the desire to dress as they wish.

Some brides find it beautiful that their bride and groom wear white on the altar, in the same way that homoafetive couples can wear the same look. Colour has become an option for the groom, as long as it respects the style of the couple and the type of marriage. Check out some ideas of places and compositions.

On the beach

Ceremonies and parties held during the day at the beach are the most suitable for light clothes. The environment conveys a light and relaxed air. We believe it is the most common kind of bond for men to be seen in white without prejudice. A blue wedding decoration is already natural with the sea and the couple will gain even more prominence if the two are the most neutral color of all.

The beach style is what makes the groom more comfortable because the jacket, tie and shoes are not mandatory. What is recommended is the choice of light and fine fabrics, such as linen, cotton or seersucker (anarruguish) silk…of light colors. Check out our composition suggestions:

  • White shirt and white pants
  • Suit off white and white shirt
  • White shirt, white pants and light grey vest
  • White shirt, white pants, white vest and light blue tie

In ceremonies in the countryside, which follow the same relaxed line as some beach linksWith rustic wedding decoration, in the morning or afternoon, the groom can choose the same beach costumes, in pastel tones, with lighter fabrics like linen or cotton.

Smoking summer

For daytime weddings in party houses or halls that ask for a more elegant as the tuxedo, the version summer is perfect, especially to be used in the middle of summer. The garment is composed by: white jacket or off whitewhite shirt, black butterfly tie, black pants and black shoes.

Many who want to choose this type of costume, but are afraid they will not agree (or even be confused with the waiters!), can put a handkerchief in the jacket pocket and vary the color of the tie, like red or pinkor wear a black vest, for example. These accessories and pieces well cut and adjusted to your body make all the difference.

Military uniform

O gala costume of naval officers is white, so many military bride and groom wear the characteristic uniform. It is also very common for military godparents to make a corridor of honor, properly dressed in darker clothes, letting the groom have the highlight of white, in exciting ceremonies.

Although the label indicates that the more the event takes place, the darker the costume should be, there are always ways to make the will of the couple prevail. If the groom feels good about the white and the pair do not object, the taste should be respected. Everything depends on the dialogue of the protagonists to reach a consensus. And the bride and groom at the top of the wedding cake may have the white-inspired look too.
