How To Choose Your Wedding Suit

By Doris Walker

Compared to just a few years ago the choice of what suit a groom can wear for his wedding has grown enormously. Prior to that, the groom and his party wore either morning suits or dark lounge suits with a jazzy waistcoat. Now the groom has lots of choice just like the bride.

Do not be tempted to cut corners when deciding what to wear for your wedding, you will regret it if you do so. Your wedding is the most important day of your life and will be remembered by all of your friends and family for many years to come. The photographs taken on that day will be shared amongst family and friends for decades. The best way to ensure that you look your best is to treat yourself to a bespoke wedding suit. Off the peg or hired suits never look anywhere as good as a bespoke suit.

There are many styles of suit to choose from, so you have to work out which style will be the best for you. It is not like buying a business suit. Start by going window-shopping and browsing the internet, so you can see what is currently available. When you have found a few suits you like discuss them with your fiance, show her some photographs if possible. Your suit has to blend in with the wedding’s theme and her gown. When you have narrowed the choice down to a few suits, try on some off the peg versions. Doing so will enable you to determine if you really do like that style of suit. Wear the correct shoes, shirt, tie or cravat to get the full effect.

Consider the type of fabric your suit should be made of, not just its colour. Your suit needs to be made from a lightweight or cool fabric if it will be warm. Bear in mind the reception where you will be dancing and will get hot.

Once you know the type of suit, you want search for a tailor to make it for you. A good tailor can make any kind of suit, but it is wise to choose one that is used to making suits for weddings. Allow your tailor at least 3 months to make your suit for you. You will need to visit your tailor at least 3 times during that time, skipping a fitting is not an option.
