The style of the bride’s dress greatly influences the attire for the groom and the groomsmen.
The Traditional Biker Wedding Tux
Generally, bikers are referred to as easy going and carefree, but we still have some traditions!
- Black leather doorag or beret
- Black leather tie
- White dress shirt
- Black leather vest
- Black jeans
- Black or white socks
- Black boots
- New underwear
Don’t laugh about the underwear! He needs to feel as special as you. Just make sure, for his comfort, they are a style he is used to wearing.
Be sure to check out the Harley-Davidson® wedding ties available. There are over 25 different ties that run around $25.00.
If the guys are going to be wearing formal tuxedos, you can add some biker flair with Motorcycle Cufflinks.
See our review of motorcycle cufflinks available.
Variations of The Traditional Biker Wedding Tux
Blue Jeans With Chaps
Wear lighter colored denim verses dark colored jeans. The key here is contrast and will show off his butt nicely too!
For a very casual wedding, have the groom wear his vest and a black leather tie without a shirt.
Have “Groom” embroidered on a black cotton doorag with either white or chrome thread.
White Cotton T-shirt with Vest
Sleeves rolled up (to show off his muscles!). Have the back printed with “husband of –insert her name (especially her new last name)” and the date of the wedding. Later at the reception, the vests can come off to show off the t-shirt. This idea works best if the bride also has a t-shirt to wear.
Leather Sport Coat
Great for fall, winter or early spring and will give a more formal look to the wedding.
Silk Bow Ties
Colored to match bridesmaids.
Groomsmen can wear the same thing as the groom, with one or two small differences.
Try one of these:
- Change the color of the boutineers
- A different style vest
- Change shirt color to match bridesmaids
- Change the color or material of the doorag
- They wear doorags if the groom wears a beret
A Word About Chaps
If you are planning a summer wedding outdoors, keep the leather chap wearing to a minimum. No one needs the added worry of someone passing out from heatstroke.
