How to choose your wedding suit?
This blog post is one I’ve wanted to get down for a while, and it’s all about groom suit styles for every occasion. As everyone knows, everyone’s eyes will be on the bride’s dress, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make an equal effort. Your wedding day is the most important day of your life too, so be smart and impress your wife to be on your wedding day with a perfectly fitting groom suit. There are many different types of wedding suits for grooms and choosing a suit can be a tough decision. There is a lot to think about when choosing what you’ll wear to get married and with the overwhelming amount of suit designs can be a little daunting to make your choice.
My first word of advice I can offer right from the beginning: Rent a suit for your special day! The groom suit, just like the wedding dress, will always be a reminder of the most important day of your life. This is the perfect chance to surprise your future wife with the most amazing outfit you have ever worn. A perfect fitting groom suit will give you the confidence of marrying the woman of your dreams and being with her for the rest of your life.
Groom Suit Styles
Besides from the multitude of choice, there are several other limitations for consideration when picking the type of suit you intend to wear on your wedding day. For example, the venue, your body shape, the time of year. The following are some of the best known classification of groom suits based on the wedding types (from the most formal wedding to the least formal and most festive weddings). This is a great starting point to narrow down your search for the type of suit you should be looking at.
Groom Suits for Formal Weddings
This category of groom suits contains three wedding suits for men. The Tuxedo, the Tailcoat and the three-piece suit.
The Tuxedo – The timeless and classy wedding tuxedo conveys that element of formality into your big day. You can really make yourself stand out in a sophisticated black tuxedo or suit and black bow tie. For a customary experience, remember to keep it strictly black tie, ideally a bow tie to remain super formal. Generally speaking the tuxedo contracts from the wedding suit in having a satin trim.
Groom Suits for Casual Weddings
Great casual wedding attire for grooms is a laid back two-piece suit. This way, whether you’re having a beach party or a sunny destination wedding, you can opt for an attire with or without a waistcoat. Or even just wearing only a waistcoat and drop the morning coat for that easygoing, yet exquisite look.
City weddings are the most convenient for you and your guest, with city’s being easily accessible and a plethora of hotels to choose from this is a popular choice for most. Most city wedding locations will be hotels or city halls, if you find yourself choosing this option for your special day you can either wear a formal or more casual groom suit. This really should be dictated by the chosen wedding venue you celebrate your love. For example a boutique hotel requires a more formal approach to groom attire. If yours takes place in a city hall, than a two piece groom suit can be worn.
Vintage weddings are very on trend and quite common in every country nowadays. The great vibe to these weddings is that it doesn’t matter if the wedding location takes place in a garden, a lake, vineyard or a country field. You can easily create a vintage wedding vibe by choosing rustic decor. The most popular colour palette being dusty pink and grey combined with wooden furniture and decorations. For this style of wedding there really is only 2 styles.
The Tweed Suit – There’s something supremely sophisticated about a tweed suit. A very popular choice of attire. Based on the practical, outdoorsy garments traditionally favoured by British aristocracy, the heritage look works perfectly for autumn and winter weddings. When it comes to the tweed grooms wear, the possibilities are endless – the effect can be edgy, dapper, relaxed or even eccentric!
