Move over tradition. Only about a third of weddings take place in a religious institution anymore.1 Barns are the new popular place for a wedding ceremony, and couples are adding their own personal touches to their weddings, including with their wardrobes. Long gone are the days when tuxedos and black suits were the norm. For couples that want to add a little western flare to their weddings, country groomsmen attire is completely acceptable.
Who said western wear isn’t nice enough for a wedding? While some weddings require black ties and long dresses, others may call for cowboy boots and Wrangler jeans – it all depends on the setting. In fact, in 2009, only 2 percent of couples in the United States chose to have their wedding at a barn, farm, or ranch; but by 2017, this number jumped to 15 percent.1 If you got invited to a barn wedding, it may be the time to break out a little western cowboy clothing for a wedding.
