How to Choose a Wedding Suit?

It is always said that all the attention should be on the bride with her beautiful white dress, her pretty hair and accessories. After all, it took her month’s to organize it so that all eyes can be firmly on her. But that doesn’t mean you as the groom should fade into the background. It’s your big day too and you’re standing next to her, you should look good too.

The modern men aren’t afraid of embracing fashion and you shouldn’t be afraid of being more than a little trendy on your big day. You want to look stylish, sophisticated, timeless and stand out from the crowd. When shopping around, look at different styles of men’s suits and the different colours available. You don’t have to wear a black suit either; you’re attending a wedding, not a funeral after all. Navy, grey, brown and even brighter colours could be perfect depending on your personal taste, style and the theme of your wedding.

You should shop around for a stylish and smart. Don’t just snap up the first suit you see. Most men hate shopping but remember that this is for your big day. You will be able to take inspiration from various places and make an informed decision. You only walk down the aisle once, so why not invest in a classic designer suit? There are so many different ways you can wear it afterwards. Buying your suit is worth the investment. Most grooms rent their wedding suits, whether it is for convenience or cost saving. Even though you are only wearing it for a few hours, it is certainly a better idea to buy your own suit. Rented suits can be outdated, ill-fitting and cheap-looking which is certainly not the look you want to go for on your big day.

If you are having a summer wedding you can lose the tux jacket for a laid back look. Velvet suits for instance will be clingy and far too warm for a summer wedding, but perfect in winter. Nothing is worse than a suit that doesn’t fit well, especially on your wedding day. If you’re spending a lot of money on a quality men’s suit, you should spend the money on a quality tailor to ensure it fits perfectly. This is one of the best ways to ensure that your wedding suit looks classy and stylish, and lasts for a long time.

Sure, eyes will be on your bride for most of the day. But it’s nice to steal the limelight occasionally right? You should also stand out from your groomsmen, choose different waistcoats or ties for them. Wear either a waistcoat or cumberband but never both. Don’t forget to accessorize accordingly with your bride and her bridesmaids. Remember to smile and be happy. It’s your wedding day and pictures will be taken.
