My groom is wearing all black except for his tie! And I’m soooo excited because I think all black tuxes–black shirt, jacket, vest, pants are sooo sexy! But I also would wear a black wedding dress too so I might be a little different and obsessed with black! Hahah!

Not married, but I’ve seen a bunch of grooms in shirts in different colors!

Light blue (not a uni-colort hough, but a very fine mesh of white and blue)

Just as you pick whatever dress you want the groom should be able to pick whatever color shirt he wants.

Although I personally love to see grooms in a white shirt, I’ve been to at least two weddings where the groom wore a black shirt and white tie. As others have said, the groom can wear whatever he, or you both, choose for him to wear.

Darling Husband and his groomsmen wore white shirts. The groomsmen wore green ties to match the bridesmaid dresses and Darling Husband wore a white tie to match my dress. While it is kinda the norm to wear white, I have seen other colours. For example at my cousins wedding her bridesmaids were in teal blue and the groomsmen wore teal blue shirts with while ties.

It’s all down to preferance 🙂

My groom is wearing an ivory shirt i think? Hes made it his own by changing the buttons to blue to match his bow tie and bracers, its a very light ivory though. 

Take him to the shop and see what catches his eye 🙂
