Grooms Style

Every bride loves to see her handsome groom in a suit, awaiting her arrival at the end of the aisle. With so many choices for stylish groomswear, your other half can reflect his personality and the style of the day through his wedding day fashion. Let’s take a look at some of the possible options for your wedding at Pentney Abbey.

Morning Dress

Also known as formal day dress, the morning suit is the classic choice for a daytime wedding. Consisting of morning coat, waistcoat and striped trousers, this is something your groom is likely to hire and, while it’s a more traditional choice, it remains wonderfully elegant and truly romantic, just the thing for your ceremony in the Gatehouse.

Accessorise with…tie, black shoes, buttonhole and pocket square. You might even decide to include a top hat!

Wear during… any season.

The Lounge Suit

If you want to be a little less formal and perhaps more contemporary than morning dress, the lounge suit is another timeless choice, whether you opt for a three piece suit (to include a waistcoat) or a two-piece. Shades of blue are a great idea, with navy a classic and brighter shades of blue a current trend.

Accessorise with…white or pastel shirt, buttonhole, tie and tan brogues.

Wear during… any season.

Light-coloured Suits

A pale suit or jacket offers a more relaxed vibe – just the thing for a boho-style wedding with a delicate colour scheme.

Accessorise with…white, pastel or darker-coloured shirt, tan brogues. You might choose a tie or bow-tie or keep your shirt open at the neck. A buttonhole might complete the look.

Wear during… spring or summer months.

Patterned Jackets

Inject some fun in to your rustic wedding with a patterned jacket, whether you opt for checks or florals. If you’re not feeling bold enough to go for the full-on jacket (or suit!), choose a plain suit and wear a fabulous, patterned waistcoat. This is a fabulous look for an outdoor ceremony in our idyllic rose garden.

Accessorise with… plain shirt and tie or bow tie.

Wear during… any time of year, choosing a lighter cloth for warmer months.

Black Tie

Gone are the days where black tie is only worn at formal evening soirees. We love this sophisticated look and it’s a great opportunity for you and your guests to really ‘dress up’ for the occasion. Consider sticking to a monochrome theme with black bridesmaid dresses, and choose a wedding dress that fits the sleek, 007 style.

Accessorise with…bow tie, black shoes and elegant buttonhole.

Wear during… any season, particularly autumn or winter months.
