So you’re getting married and you’re leaving no detail uncovered. You are looking for a trending wedding suit style that’s as unique as you are, something that is still classy, will be timeless for your wedding photos for years to come but helps you stand out from the cookie-cutter styles everyone else is rocking.

Here at Tom Russo Photography we are on top of the 2022 trending wedding suit styles to fit you (or your groom-to-be) for your wedding day.


There is so much you can do with a velvet blazer or accent. It’s easy to see why this is a trending wedding suit style. for 2022. Velvet gives a luxurious and dapper look!

This texture is sure to warm up your day and would be especially cozy in the fall or winter. 

Pair your soft blazer with a bright white dress shirt, add a tie or bow tie to dress it up, or go without for a clean straight edge look. 

If you love the idea of a velvet blazer for your wedding day, but you just can’t commit to this new style on such an important day, consider a velvet bow tie or boutonniere.

Adding different textures breaks up the rigidness of a traditional suit without having to go over the top. 


Another trend you’re going to want to consider are the earth tones (think colors like tan, brown, olive green and rust.) These color schemes are so popular this year.

As seen on Wedding Wire, “Bri Marbais of The Bridal Finery in Winter Park, Florida, expects to see tons of neutral colors for men’s wedding attire in 2022. “While the classic black tux will forever stand the test of time, neutrals are definitely on the rise,” she said. The overall wedding aesthetic trend is chic and minimalistic through the use of metallics, clean lines, modern elements and a neutral color palette. “Having the groom and groomsmens’ attire complementary and cohesive with the complete wedding day look is more important than ever,” she said. “We definitely encourage grooms to step out of their comfort zone and go for the nontraditional soft neutral look.”


Mixing styles is not just for the bridesmaids. 

This trending wedding suit style for 2022 will elevate your entire wedding party by letting the groomsmen in on the fun! 

Choosing fabrics that are seasonally appropriate, consider changing up the styles between jacket and pants.

A great example would be a wool-blend blazer that would stand out yet perfectly blend with khaki chinos. 

While this is traditional with a coastal wedding, we think in the right setting this style could really pop!
