Congratulations! You have found the love of your life and now it is time to tie the knot. But, before you can do that, there are a few things you need to take care of first: such as finding the perfect wedding suit for your big day. There are many options when it comes to choosing a style and colour scheme for this important garment, so the team at Groom Hire have put together some pointers to help you along the way.
Once you’ve got an idea of what you might be after, why not pop into one of our stores and see some of our stunning suits for yourself.
Here’s our 5-step guide on how to find the best wedding suit:
1: Dress Code
Know what type of bridegroom dress code suits you; formal or casual? What colours would work well with your skin tone? Or maybe patterns like a pinstripe, check or tweed?
2: Get Measured Professionally
You’ll want to get measured by a suit specialist who will be able to give you expert advice on the best fit.
Don’t forget that it’s not just about measurements, but also which style of suit is going to work for your body shape and size too!
3: The Right Colours
In terms of colours, have a think about what your wedding theme is and how that might work with other elements.
For example, if you’re getting married in the winter and it’s going to be held at night time (with candles lit) then maybe an elegant black suit would look fantastic against this backdrop? However, if you are having a summertime wedding and you’re thinking about getting married outside in a beautiful garden, then we would suggest going for something lighter such as light grey or tan.
It’s also worth noting that most grooms do not wear white. We recommend sticking to darker colours like navy blue, charcoal grey and black – these will always work well together!
4: Suit Patterns
Once you have decided on your colour scheme, you can start to look at patterns.
There are many to choose from these days and they are great for adding a touch of personality into your wedding suit ensemble.
If you’re looking for something that’s subtle then why not consider the grey herringbone or a textured fabric? If it is more striking you are after, then consider tartan or paisley.
5: Wedding suit accessories
Finally, remember that the right accessories can really pull your wedding suit ensemble together and give you a great look.
You might want to consider investing in:
- a) A complementary waistcoat – these come in many different colours too so it’s worth having one or two on standby!
- b) A beautiful silk pocket square – this will simply slot into the breast pocket of your jacket.
- c) A classic pocket watch to add a timeless air of elegance to your outfit.
Although shoes aren’t exactly classed as accessories, they certainly will make break your outfit if they aren’t carefully considered. Colour match accordingly, and if in doubt, consult your tailor.
