When it comes to a man’s big day he knows that all eyes are going to be on the bride as she makes her way down the aisle to him. And while she will look and feel every bit as beautiful as she deserves to, it behoves her significant other to look at his most handsome and elegant as he stands beside her to make his vows.
Whether your big day is just around the corner or years away, it’s in a groom’s best interest to start thinking about the kind of suit he’d like to wear as soon as possible. While you should look and feel comfortable, smart and handsome in your wedding suit, you should also consider coordinating with the style of the bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses when selecting your style of suit.
Let’s take a look at the different styles of wedding suits available. Whatever aesthetic you’re going for, you’re sure to find something that works for you…
If your wedding will be a formal affair, you may find that a traditional evening suit with tails or a frock coat is the best option to match the traditional aesthetic of your wedding.
The great thing about tailcoats is that they are snug and form fitting yet flattering to virtually any physique while a marcella waistcoat keeps your midsection under control.
Top hats are optional.
The wedding tux
If you’re looking for something formal but the traditional top and tails aren’t for you, a tuxedo is always an elegant choice. The clean lines and satin lapels look great on pretty much everyone.
If your tastes veer towards the traditional, opt for a black tux and accentuate the formality with a classic black bow tie, whereas if you’re looking for something a little more contemporary a navy tux also looks fantastic.
A third option for a formally styled wedding is a smart dinner jacket and matching trouser.
The beauty of the dinner jacket is that it is versatile and flattering for all wearers.
You can opt for a single breasted or double breasted style depending on your shape and the wide range of available colours means that you’re bound to be able to find something to match what your bride is wearing. Of course, if you want to play it safe, always go back to black!
Double breasted Italian style
The double breasted 6 button Italian style suit is a great way to combine elegance with a distinctive and different feel.
They are a little more formal than their single breasted counterparts and while they are traditionally worn with long ties, it’s not inconceivable to pair it with a bow tie. This kind of suit is best for tall and / or slender grooms.
British tweed three-piece
If you’re looking for a slightly more casual yet timeless look, you can’t go wrong with a tweed or herringbone three piece.
This is the perfect choice for grooms who want to look smart and elegant yet would feel uncomfortable in a morning suit or a tuxedo.
