Choosing a Wedding Suit – A Guide for Grooms

A special day calls for a special outfit, and no day is more memorable than your wedding day. But how can you dress to impress without blending in as “just another guy in a black suit” on the day that you marry your bride?

Tailored elegance

Nothing is more handsome than a man in a nicely cut suit. If you can afford it, a tailor-made suit will look fantastic, feel comfortable, and stay in fashion for a long time. You can also by an off-the-rack suit and have it adjusted to fit, saving you some money for the honeymoon!

A Suit to Re-use

If you spend a lot of money on your suit, then choosing a style that you can wear again is a good idea. To make sure you cut a dash, buy a three-piece suit with a waistcoat to spruce up your outfit for the day. You can leave it off on other occasions or use the waistcoat on its own to add a dashing look to a more casual outfit.

Casual Style

If you’re having an outdoor wedding then you may like to go for a more casual suit. Choose light colours such as sand, off-white or pale blue, and breathable fabrics like cotton, linen or very lightweight wool. These colours and fabrics look especially good for seaside weddings.

A Formal Statement

If the dress code is formal, that means wearing a dinner suit or a tuxedo. (Tuxedos are like dinner suits but have satin on the lapels, buttons, pockets and a satin stripe down the leg.) If you decide you want something flashier – say in an unusual colour – go for something that speaks of your personality and works in with the theme of the celebration. Have a chat to your bride and (without revealing too many secret details!) work out how your outfits can complement each other.

Of course, the most important thing about your outfit is that you feel great and enjoy your wedding day!
