Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Wedding Suit

The wedding suit holds a special place in a groom’s heart, symbolising not just style, but also, just like the bride, the style of suit you choose reflects your personality. Selecting the perfect wedding suit is a journey that’s as much about personal expression as it is about tradition. In Our guide to finding the perfect wedding suit, we’ll take you through everything you need to know to find the suit that not only fits you impeccably but also reflects your unique personality and style on your special day.

The Importance of the Wedding Suit

Your wedding suit is more than just clothing; it’s a representation of your identity as you step into this significant chapter of your life. Whether you opt for a classic tuxedo or a contemporary tailored suit, your choice speaks volumes about your style, confidence, and commitment.

Just the same as your bride-to-be you want to look your best and feel your best. This is one of the most important days of your life after all! A suit is the highest level of dressy and with your beautiful partner in an outfit that oozes elegance, you want to meet the same vibe as them. Unlike the white wedding dress that used to symbolise purity, the suit actually has no other symbolism other than looking extra dapper on your day.

Finding Your Style

Before you start browsing through racks or flipping through style guides, take a moment to consider your personal style. Are you drawn to classic elegance, modern minimalism, or perhaps a touch of vintage flair?

In guide to finding the perfect wedding suit, we help you see that understanding your style preferences will help narrow down your options and make the decision-making process smoother. There are so many different styles when it comes to suits and finding the one that suits you perfectly can be tricky and sometimes it’s a case of trial and error. Whether you’re after a black tie, white tie, lounge suit or the classic morning suit, there is a style out there to suit everyone. Each option carries its own charm and significance. Explore different suit styles, fabrics, colours, and details to find the perfect match for your wedding theme, venue, and personal taste.

You may also want to choose somtehing that is really different for your special day. Whilst this can work for many, please don’t forget that certain clothing will date you and what is in fashion now may not stand the test of time. Do not forget that you will be looking back over your wedding pictures in years to come. Perhaps your children will be looking as well – ensure you are completely happy with the style and choice you go for!

Don’t try to step completely out of your comfort zone. As with the point above, you want to always be proud of what you chose for your wedding day – having a suit that maybe wouldn’t be your normal choice or style may be a regret that you always have. Think carefully about opting for a bold check or a bright colour, if you are more of a classic style!

Accessorising with Flair

Once you’ve selected the suit, it’s time to add those finishing touches that elevate your look from ordinary to extraordinary.

From statement ties and pocket squares to stylish cufflinks and boutonnieres, this is where you can choose something a little different. Accessories allow you to inject personality and flair into your wedding ensemble. There’s lots of ways to make bold or subtle statements with your suit. You can opt for a super subtle but personal cuff link or maybe be a bit extra with a top hat.

The style of your suit is totally down to you. Don’t overlook the importance of coordinating your shoes and belt with your suit. Opt for leather dress shoes in a classic style and colour that complements your suit, ensuring they are well-maintained for a polished appearance. Coordinate your belt with the colour and finish of your shoes for a cohesive and put-together look.

Co-Ordination is Key

Your new partner may want to have some input into your choice. And that is totally between the two of you! The colours and use of accessories within your outfit will perhaps be discussed, so the co-ordination between you, your groomsmen, the bridesmaids and the flowers will match 100%.

Don’t be stubborn for your wedding day and want to create your own specific look. Talk to each other and work out a plan to co-ordinate what you need to, to create something spectacular on your big day!

You may want your suit to be a surprise, but ensure everything else is matching…or not! Just make sure you discuss what you both want. This is the start of your forever partnership after all!

Purchasing the Perfect Suit

When it comes to buying the perfect suit, it can be hard to know where to look. Whether you have a high or lower budget for your suit, there are so many incredible places to shop either online or in-store. If you have a higher budget for your suit, try independent shops local to you. There are still many menswear shops that will have tailors who can fit you exactly. Do your research and book an appointment with a tailor who will have the perfect eye to what suits and fits you the best.

If you still want a lovely suit at a much lower price try online shops like ASOS. This works well, especially if you are a standard “off the peg” size. M&S as well as John Lewis will offer a good choice as well. All designer brands will also give a great choice of classic as well as the more unusual styling of suit.

Feel Comfortable and Confident

Choosing the perfect wedding suit is an essential part of preparing for your big day. By understanding your personal style, exploring different options, ensuring the perfect fit, and adding stylish accessories, you can create a look that’s uniquely yours and perfectly suited for love.

Your wedding suit is more than just clothing; it’s a symbol of your commitment, style, and personality. Take the time to explore your options, find the perfect fit, and accessorise with flair. When you step into that suit on your wedding day, you’ll not only look dashing but also feel really confident… ready to embark on the journey of a lifetime with the one you love by your side.
