While fashion is always evolving in the wedding industry, groom’s fashion hasn’t changed too much over the past century. Tuxedos are always a classic style that is always fashion-forward, but can be challenging in desert climates. So what can you wear if it’s not a tuxedo?

Pick something shorter. If you are a non-traditional groom, dressy shorts or short shelve button up shirts are fine. It is ok to go casual, as long as you looks like you are dressed to get married.
