Day 3 Brown Tweed

Today we are going to talk about how to style a brown suit for your wedding day. This has been a high demand look for last year and 2020.


Brown suits, usually tweed or wool in fabric, have become increasingly popular in recent years for grooms looking to stray away from traditional and formal dress in favor of something more dressed down and comfortable. A brown suit is fairly neutral in colour meaning it will complement many different colours so will easily slot into most wedding colour palettes.

Some use brown to complement a warm, autumnal palette of oranges and reds, whilst some contrast it with accents of navy, ice blue and green.

With many couples opting for less traditional wedding venues such as rustic barns, botanical gardens, outdoors and abroad beach weddings, a more dressed down and neutral suit is a great way to complement the feel of the whole wedding.There are many different options when it comes to dressing groomsmen in this particular style of suit. Firstly, the groomsmen could fully match the groom- some couples choosing a simpler style wedding may like to keep things neutral and have everybody matching. Some like to have the groomsmen and groom in the same suit but change a few details such as the grooms lapel flower or tie colour. Some may change the grooms waistcoat to be a contrast check or a complementing colour to the colour palette, which is nice because the jackets will usually be removed after the ceremony so the groom will stand out for the rest of the day.

Finally, the groomsman could wear the same suit as the groom but could just wear the waistcoat and trouser, whilst the groom could wear the full three piece, this is particularly nice for summer weddings or those choosing to get married abroad.
