Punks, Goths and Grunge Kids: Groom Style That’s Anything But Boring!

punks goths grunge groom style ideas

I don’t know about you, but I’ve noticed a frightening lack of wedding inspiration for grooms on wedding blogs. It’s all dresses, cakes and flowers – not very manly! It can be really difficult to find groom styling inspiration when planning your wedding so today, let’s try and do something about it. It’s time to ditch the ill-fitting rental suits and celebrate some individuality.

Let’s hear it for the boys!

  1. Hear, hear Kat! I love the variety of looks you’ve sourced.

    Grooms don’t have to spend big money to make sure they look amazing. If buying off the peg, at least budget a little extra to have minor alterations to make it fit perfectly. It makes all the difference.

    Thanks for posting 😀

    Thank you so much for this amazing inspiration Kat, and to publish it on the day my poor man is getting fitted for the awful penguin suit he has to wear as his brother’s best man is just perfect. Hopefully this will inspire him :)

  3. Great post, so inspirational and you are so right not enough emphasis is placed on the men and how they look, we need more cool menswear suppliers please!!!

    Fun post. Love the style tips.
    A lot of your internal links are forwarding with a secure protocol of ‘https’ instead of the regular ‘http’. I only mention because some browsers get weird about forwarding to an ‘https’ site that you are not logged into. Mine pops up a weird message asking ‘would you like to proceed’.
    You’ll probably want to leave out the ‘s’ in the future.
    Love the site, keep up the good work.

    I love the fact that you have focused on the men. They have a key roll in this special day as well.
    My man and I are getting hitched on the 17th of August. I love pin up style it has became my look over that several years so we decided to go with that as our theme and my man came up with the idea of zoot suit. Pin up with 1940’s gangster twist. Oh it will be amazing!!

    My soon to be grooms suit cost more than my frock and is so damn amazing I can’t wait to see him down the other end of the isle.17 days and counting…
