Inexpensive Options: Groom’s Edition

It's that time again! Inexpensive wedding attire options for el groomo.

A current trend that I totally support is the choice of many couples to have the groom wear a really nice suit instead of a tuxedo. I totally agree with this choice for a number of reasons:

1) Every guy needs one good suit.
2) It used to be that the cost of a nice suit would run you the same as a down payment on a new home. But not anymore! Major retailers like Target, Walmart, and Macy's are carrying lines of nicely cut but affordable suits.
3) A bride in a full tulle ballgown does not look mismatched next to a groom in really good-looking suit.
4) It's springtime – relax. Now is the time to sport khakis, light wool, or even lose the suit jacket!

So today, I am showing you three options for the groom – all under $150.00.

Option #1 (Total Cost of Outfit – $148.20):

Walmart George Classic Suit Jacket and Pant in Black– $80.76

Charcoal is a great alternative color to the traditional black. A bit more modern yet still with a timeless air about it. This color is also very flattering on very pale or very red tone complexions.
