Grooms With Beards: 10 Guys Who Rocked the Facial Hair for Their Wedding

Brittny Drye Founder + Editor-in-Chief of Love Inc. Magazine | On-Air Wedding Expert | LGBTQ+ Inclusivity in the Wedding Industry

There's an age-old argument that men should shave for their wedding day because a freshly shaven face looks “timeless.” Our thoughts? If you rock a beard on a daily basis and your soon-to-be spouse loves it, stay true to yourself. As we move into the colder months and beard season is in full swing, we were inspired to delve into our archives and round up photos of grooms who nailed the whole facial hair thing, from burly and beautiful to a sexy scruff, proving to you that it's okay to buck tradition.
