Need we say more? It doesn’t get more New England than the classic Cape Cod wedding with an outdoor summer ceremony, where the groom and groomsmen are wearing their linen suits or are outfitted in the perfect navy blazer with khaki pants pair. Finish off either trending style with a timeless and crisp blue or white shirt.
Milton's Pro Tip: For the preppy couple, pair either look with a Vineyard Vines tie for a casually cool look you both will love.
We know you like your New England prep, so get this wedding ring to match everything you own.
2. Light Gray Tuxes
The hottest color in suits at the moment is certainly having it's moment in weddings as well! Perfect for the romantic gray, silver, blush wedding themed weddings from spring all the way through early fall, wear the light gray tux with a vest or as a regular two piece. We love it paired with a blush colored tie to match bridesmaids in a similar color. The experts at Milton's tell us that tan or brown shoes keep the look on trend and a white pocket square knocks it out of the park.
Milton's Pro Tip: Don’t want to match the bridesmaids completely? Pair the light gray tux with a white shirt and tonal patterned silver tie for a sophisticated look. Want your groom to stand apart from his groomsmen? Have him wear the vest and put the groomsmen in the two piece.

3. Black Tie Affair
While the black tie trend is always in for the high-style couple, this Hollywood glam look is becoming more popular than ever. Not only does it looks great year round, but it looks amazing paired with bridesmaids in silver or sequin dresses dresses, which is another big trend right now. The experts at Milton suggest the black tie paired with a slim fit black or navy tuxedo and white formal shirt.
Milton's Pro Tip: Try trading out the black bow tie for a more fun silver bow tie and add a white pocket square to complete the look.

4. All About the Details
The bride has her something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue…well the groom and groomsmen should have their own special details, too. Set the groom apart from his guys by having him wear a vest, while the groomsmen don’t. Need everyone in a vest? Have the groom wear a different color. Other ideas to make your guy stand out: Have the groom wear a different tie than his groomsmen, or have the groom in a bow tie and the groomsmen in ties. Again, it's all in the details, so don’t forget to have your suit tailored professionally, and add on the tie bars, cufflinks, suspenders and pocket squares to complete the look!
Milton's Pro Tip: The bride and her bridesmaids will most likely get a shoe shot, so make sure the groom and his groomsmen get their funky sock or cool shoe shot, too.
This wedding band is all about the manly details.
5. The New Blues
We're feeling the blues - The new blues that is! Perfect for the trendy couple that is a little less traditional, tuxes in any shade of blue give the classic look we know and love a modern twist. Planning your wedding for the spring, summer, or early fall? The new blue is lighter than the traditional dark navy and will look perfect in outdoor pictures, while fall or winter weddings call for the deeper navy blue. Wear a blue tux with a white shirt, plum colored tie and tan shoes to match bridesmaids in plum, or any other shade of purple.
Milton's Pro Tip: We also love this trend paired with solid navy ties for a slightly more traditional and sophisticated look that will match bridesmaids in any color.
