How to Choose a Wedding Suit

Let’s face it – when it comes to weddings, it’s all about the bride. Men get little say in what goes on during the big day, and to be honest, most don’t really mind. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t make sure that you look your absolute best on the big day. Although everybody’s focus will undoubtedly be on the dress, you’re still going to want to look dapper next to your beautiful bride. Selecting the perfect wedding suit can be a bit of a minefield for some guys, so if you’re feeling a little bit overwhelmed with it all, we’ve got some tips to help get you started.

Measure Up

Before you can go out and start trying on suits, it’s vital that you are correctly measured. There’s no room for hit and miss when it comes to buying a formal suit for your wedding – you’ll want to make sure that it fits perfectly, as this is essential if you want to ensure that you look your best. You can measure yourself for a suit if you follow the instructions, or get a friend to help. Alternatively, if you want to be extra sure that you have your measurements bang on, pay a visit to a professional tailor who’ll be happy to make sure you’re measured and ready to go.

Purchase – Don’t Rent

Many grooms are tempted to rent a suit rather than purchase one, and it’s hard to blame them considering that they’re only going to be wearing it for a day – not to mention the price of good tailored suits! However, renting a suit can come with its own set of problems. Rented suits can often look cheap and rarely fit properly – not something that you want when you’re trying to look like the best possible version of yourself on your special day. Not to mention the fact that countless other men have probably gotten married in the same suit as well! Instead of renting, opt for a suit that you can get a lot more wear out of after the wedding so that you get more for your money.

Consider the Styles

So many grooms make the mistake of turning up to their wedding in a suit that makes them look like they’re about to give a presentation in the boardroom. You should look like you’re getting married, so ensure that you buy your suit from a tailor who specialises in stylish wedding suits and accessories. Three piece suits are the best choice for weddings if you’re going for the classic look, and depending on your theme, they’re available in classic dark colours or even tweed, a style that is set to be huge this year.

Choosing the perfect suit for your wedding should never be a job that’s rushed into! Give it the right amount of careful consideration and be prepared to pay more than you’re used to in order to make sure you’re a match for your beaming bride.
