I’ve been all over google images and everywhere in between and I thought I would come here to see if anyone can share some helpful ideas.
We are doing a planned elopement, so I’m only concerned with dressing myself and my fiance. I’ll have a short white sun dress, flower crown, flats. The idea is “be yourself and be casual”
I cannot decide on a look for my fiance though… I want to know if anyone can offer ideas for a casual groom that incoorperates black attire.
I see lots of cute white, khaki, blue, beige outfits but I want to know if it’s possibly to do casual AND still wear a fashionable black??
Also if anyone has ideas for casual groom with a jacket/blazer… because I see the vest look a lot and fiance wants to look suave and not dorky (which we both agree vest look dorky )
look forward to seeing/hearing ideas <3

How about something like this?
Jeans, rolled cuffs on button down shirt, and a black vest? Or if you’re really not into the best, black jeans and the rolled cuff shirt by themselves.

Black pants and white button-up shirt with black dress shoes and a tie? Not using a jacket would make it a more casual look in my opinion.

DH has a sport jacket that’s like a denim material but darker, not sure what material it is really. How about something like this? I’m a fan of wire shirts, khakis and loafers!

Chinos, linen granda shirt and black blazer would look good

I’m with PPs: I would go with beige or navy chinos with a black blazer and white open-necked shirt. Then footwear I would go with a brogue or loafer in tan/brown.

What will the weather be like? I know you said sundress but just wondering how warm?

Not sure if my idea will fit the season of your elopement, but I’ve always loved the look of a formal cardigan or sweater. We’re having a casual backyard wedding and my groom will be in something like..

My DH wore very dark nice jeans, a navy checked dress shirt, vest, suit jacket and a tie. He wanted to be himself but still be dressed up, so he opted for dress jeans instead of suit pants. It looked really nice!

Thank you so much everyone, wow it really helps to see it from someone elses point of view. I have thought about a lot of these things, but it is hard to decide. When I told my fiance about jeans he was like “that looks stupid” LOL he said it’s a texas thing.. i was like idk it is really popular..
We found a cute black blazer that is almost denim with cute corduroy accents. and I guess I’m trying really hard to make an outfit out of it.. but it’s hard.. and i am starting to wonder if we should just fore-go the jacket.. but i know my fiance loves his jackets

haha well it’s gonna be end of May in Texas, so hot as hell probably.. we are gonna do it in the AM but that only helps so much. our ceremony will only be 5 or so minutes out in the feilds so it should be fine though.

What I’d do is a sharp blazer, crisp white button up shirt tucked in, nice new dark jeans that aren’t too baggy or too skinny (and no distressing or excessive fading), nice leather belt, and NICE SHOES. Johnston & Murphy makes gorgeous shoes that can seriously dress up a pair of jeans. If he doesn’t wear the nice shoes, then you’ll run the risk of him looking slobby/TOO casual. In the pic a PP posted, the dudes in sweaters would be much better off in nice shoes – the sneakers look kinda trashy in my opinion)
Blazer + jeans + nice Johnston & Murphy shoes is probably my favorite look on my fiance, and if we were going for a casual affair that’s what he’d do.
