Your wedding is meant to be one of the happiest days of your life. Although you have to be somewhat realistic with your expectations, you still want to make the celebration as meaningful, beautiful, and authentic as you can. That also includes showing off the best possible version of yourself through what you choose to wear.

However, the reality is that some people can’t be bothered to put in the effort, even when it’s their wedding. Our team at Pictolic has collected pictures of the most underdressed grooms that guests have ever seen. This goes beyond embracing an easygoing wardrobe or opting for a slightly more casual tone. Scroll down to see some fashion disasters and how drearily shorts, crocs, and T-shirts look next to gorgeous dresses. Just remember, the point isn't to make fun of anyone—it's a reminder that many of us could stand to brush up our fashion sense and self-awareness a bit.

Pictolic reached out to Jessica Harvey, the director of Suave Owl Menswear, for some advice for grooms who want to wear a slightly more casual style at their wedding. She was kind enough to share some practical advice on what to avoid doing. Read on for her insights.

#1 This Is My Dad When He Married My Mom

I asked him, "Why were you dressed like this to the wedding?" and he said, "Your mom invited me to the wedding, but she didn't tell me whose."

Before we get into it, here’s a quick reminder that you should do what makes you and your partner happy at your wedding. If you want a small and intimate ceremony, go for it. If you want to invite all of your friends, family, and neighbors, go do that. If you want a specific theme for the reception or a particular dress code, embrace it and have fun. Make sure that you and your partner are happy and that your guests are entertained, and you’ll have a great time.

That being said, let’s not ignore the elephant in the room: if your partner dresses up very nicely for your wedding but you saunter in wearing dusty crocs, torn shorts, and an icky T-shirt, something’s gone incredibly wrong somewhere. And generally, we don’t like to judge—but some fashion choices merit at least a dash of healthy criticism. It’s your wedding day: you want to look polished, not sloppy.

#3 The Groom's Idea Of Dressing For The Occasion

“Taking a more casual approach to groom’s wear is not to be sniffed at. But your outfit does still require careful consideration so that you don’t end up looking like you’ve picked up yesterday’s clothes from the bedroom floor!” Harvey, the director of Suave Owl Menswear, which is based in the UK, told Bored Panda via email.

“Whatever you choose to wear, make sure it fits well and is clean and pressed. Jeans or a T-shirt are absolute no-go’s. Stick to a 3-color rule to ensure consistency through your ensemble,” she shared some great advice for all grooms-to-be.

According to Harvey, something that we should all consider doing is matching the shoes that the groom’s party wears. A unified style and color scheme can add a lot of oomph to photos... while the opposite is also true.

“Ensure that all members of the groom’s party wear the same shoes, too, or at least the same color. Perfect outfits but mismatched colored footwear stands out in the photographs!” she said.

What really helps take a lot of the stress off a groom’s shoulders is turning to professionals for help. For example, Harvey told us that Suave Owl Menswear’s setup doesn’t allow for mistakes to be made.

“Advice from beginning to end gets it right every time!” she said.

And though fashion advice from family, friends, and loved ones can be invaluable, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

“Allowing input from too many people will always pull the groom away from their style and comfort. We encourage the groom to visit our shop alone or with their fiancé/e before making a group booking,” the director told us.
