What Should A Groom Wear For A Christmas Wedding?


Looking for Christmas groom’s suits can be a challenging affair. You want to have a distinct Christmas groom’s look but keep the balance of both weddings and Christmas. You do not want to omit the Christmas festivities, but you don’t want to dress up as Father Christmas either. Here are some groom’s suits and groom’s accessories we’d recommend as Christmas groom outfit inspiration.

The Rosa velvet jacket is a stand out festive favourite. It exudes luxury & indulgence that is always popular in December. It comes in four colours – black, red, green, and navy. Winter formalwear at some of its finest, the Rosa jacket would be a standout option for Christmas groom attire. Full formal, but still intriguing, it pairs well with a bowtie, SUAVE OWL shirt, black trousers, and black brogues. If your Christmas wedding has a modern, luxe aesthetic, the Rosa is the perfect fit. Plus, you can rewear it for future winter events as a lovely reminder of the fantastic day you had. It is an option a Christmas groom must thoroughly consider!



The Caridi Olive is another suit that Christmas grooms should think about. In a subtle festive colour, this dark green suit with a subtle black check is perfect for grooms who like a 3-piece suit. It will allow you to standout from your guests and groomsmen in a suit that isn’t something you see every day, whilst keeping you fashionable. The slim fit is figure hugging and will show off your frame. A groom, especially in a groom’s Christmas suit, deserves to look and feel his best. With the Caridi olive, this is easily achieved.

Of course, some men will want their groom’s suit to be a little more understated. The Marco suit is a classic black suit in a slim fit that flatters the wearer and looks in perfect place for groom’s attire. Look distinguished in a modern suit. An additional benefit of the Marco suit is that accessories and pops of colour truly do make a statement. Read on for more on how to accessorise for your men’s Christmas wedding outfit.



Christmas Wedding Accessories For Men


Blending sophistication and the Christmas season in your groom’s accessories is easier than you think.

An easy route to making your groom’s accessories Christmassy is to utilise Christmas plants. You can do this in your boutonniere or upper chest pocket. Mistletoe or holly are obvious choices, although you may want to opt for fake holly. However, plants like red rose, amaryllis poinsettia are all in bloom and often seen around the Christmas season – plus they are all available in a bright, festive red. Consider Christmas flowers for your groom’s accessories to incorporate the season.

You could also keep it classic with bold statement accessories. Ties, bow ties, braces, and pocket squares are all commonly used as groom’s accessories. However, you could include a festive colour scheme, such as red and green, white and blue, or bold gold, to designate the season.

For a special touch, likely just for some photographs on the day, you could also wear a santa hat or reindeer antlers. They’ll make for fun photographs to look back on and to remind you of the occasion in future years.



Ultimately, a groom’s accessories should reflect his personality and compliment his suit. For a Christmas wedding, a groom may choose to lean into the theme with his accessories or to disregard it completely. A classic look will always suit the occasion. What a groom opts for is completely up to him!


What Should A Guest Wear To A Christmas Wedding?


Figuring out what men should wear as a wedding guest to a Christmas wedding can be tricky. You may have reservations about leaning into the festive spirit, or you may be concerned about leaning into it too much. There’s also the worry that comes with figuring out what to wear to a wedding, how to not overshadow the groom and his party, and being prepared for everything the day may entail. Remember, there’s no need to panic. Here’s some recommendations on what to wear from SUAVE OWL.



The Ted is a classic SUAVE OWL suit that is always popular for weddings. A brown suit with a navy and black checked detail, it’s a classic style that works for a myriad for occasions.

A navy suit is a classic wedding choice. We have two fantastic navy options that are perfect for wedding guest suits. For a neutral wedding suit that you can accessorise for the occasion and your personality, trust one of these navy options. The suit alone provides intrigue and works year-round. Make it festive with seasonal colours – dark green accessorising or bright red accessorising would both work well with the neutral brown of the Ted.



The Eton suit is a navy suit with a wine and tan check. The red in the suit pattern means it pairs well with other shades of red. For a Christmas wedding, simply accessorise with this colour on top of a white formal shirt. You can also dress it down a little bit by wearing the Eton with a red SUAVE OWL shirt. Either way, you’ll look the part.

The Jenson is another navy suit but with a mustard and black check detail. This suit comes with a double-breasted waistcoat. This suit is distinctly a classic style and provides a timeless wear. For a Christmas wedding, you can accessorise with gold in your tie or bow tie and pocket square. However, you could also accessorise with black or mustard for a seamless and cohesive look. For a more relaxed look that is still seasonal, simply wear your formal shirt with no tie and pair it with a scarf.
