For serious.  Look to your left.  (Go ahead.  Take your time.)  Can anyone else say, yummy?  (You’re still looking, aren’t you?)

As one of the most – if not THEE most – swoonworthy leading men to ever rock the silver screen, Cary Grant epitomized old Hollywood glamour and refined masculinity.  With his unreal, shake-what-cha-mama-gave-ya, good looks and overtly debonair demeanor, he might as well of wrote the book on men’s fashion during the 1930s, 40s, 50s and 60s.

But his timeless style didn’t just define the Golden Age of Hollywood – oh no, my lovely brides-to-be-, it lives on today, which is exactly why he’s the quintessential male to consider when stylizing grooms.

Regardless of the time of year you’re planning on saying “I do” to your boo or the level of formality you’re planning to capture, take it from me and take note from the man who did it best… Ladies and gentlemen, I give you, the many looks of Cary Grant:

Summer Style for Grooms

..........................................................................

Who says only brides get to wear white?  For summer weddings, let your groom channel his inner Cary Grant with light colored suits and colorfully dramatic ties.  Top off his look with a fetching fedora, and you’ll easily go ga-ga over his breezy, bold style.

Fall Fashion for Grooms

..........................................................................

Fall weddings are all about warmth, which is exactly why grooms will want to look ultra in HOTT in dark pinstripes, layers and classic lines.  Maybe you don’t want your man smoking a pipe (understandable), but that doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with heavier fabrics and deeper, neutral shades.

Winter Wardrobe for Grooms

..........................................................................

Won’t he look dashing in a tailored suit or tuxedo?  For winter weddings, try a more custom look with richer tones.  Here, Cary Grant pairs his uber sophisticated suit with a long trench and gentleman’s cap… ideal for weddings looking to be chilled to perfection.  (Pun intended – haha!)

Spring Sexiness for Grooms

........................................................................

It’s all about a fresh sense of style for springtime weddings, which is exactly why grooms can delight in lighter fabrics and softer shades, while still maintaining a crisp look that only men in suits can have.  Feel free to try pocketless, grey suits with bright boutonnieres!

Groom’s Look for Informal / Mid-morning / Wedded Courthouse Contracts

........................................................................

Hello, Mr. Casual!  For mid-morning or courthouse weddings, there’s no need for all the fuss.  Let your man feel comfortable in a tailored pair of slacks and a dress shirt, which can be paired with a sleek pullover in colder months.

Groom’s Look for Semiformal Afternoon Nuptials

........................................................................

For those of you looking for something a little dressier than a backyard BBQ, suave suits are a must!  Weddings don’t have to be about tuxedos; so, for semiformal, afternoon nuptials, let your groom dazzle in tailored look without all the hullabaloo.  Don’t worry about bulking him up with layers; just let him shine in clean lines and a well, styled tie. 

Groom’s Look for Formal Afternoon Nuptials

........................................................................

One word for this look.  Roar.  Grooms will ooze sex appeal and distinction in a contemporary suit or tux for afternoon “I do’s” looking to get a little fancier.  Complete the look with distinguished cuff links and a snazzy pocket square, and you’ll see why your man is such a catch!  

Groom’s Look for Formal Evening I do’s

........................................................................

Oh, Mr. Grant, you are one dashing, dashing man… For formal, evening weddings, grooms should be dressed to the nines.  Think James Bond on his most debonair, 007 day or Brad Pitt in his finest red carpet wardrobe!

Groom’s Look for Very Formal / Black Tie-the-Knot’s

........................................................................

Not everything sank on the Titanic, ladies.  For instance, for super formal, black tie weddings… simply shut your eyes and picture Leonardo DiCaprio waiting for you at the bottom of the stairs… ahhh, delicious.  Black tie affairs are all about the glitz; so, don’t be afraid to let your man get super fanci-fied in a top hat and tails!

And there you have it… Cary Grant inspiring generations nearly two decades since his last suit!  R.I.P, Senior Cary, and thanks for being such a stud!
