The Groom: 8 Rules to Follow When Choosing Your Wedding Suit

Stand out on your wedding day


Selecting the perfect suit for your upcoming wedding can be a challenge. Some prefer comfort over practicality, luxury over minimalism, classic over laidback. That’s why picking the perfect suit is harder than you may think. Nowadays, with all the changes, trends and fashion breakouts taking place, people are becoming more and more aware, fashion-wise and most grooms want more than just the classic plain black suit. 

Some grooms don’t like to dress formally because they find suiting up impractical and discomforting, that’s why they fail miserably when it’s time to pick out a suit to get married in, in spite of the inevitability of the situation.  

For that reason, we decided to assist our men in their endeavors. Here are 8 crucial rules that the groom should stick to when times get hard.

1- After deciding on a wedding theme with your partner, you’ll have a clear idea of how your suit should look. Ask yourself if you’d be comfortable in a multi-piece suit all day long, inquire about the theme and find out if you should go for fancy or laidback accordingly. Is the theme more on the classical side or will the venue be packed with fairy lights and mason jars because it’s operation boho? You have got to be able to answer these questions before anything else.

2- Your suit and your bride’s dress must complement each other, so have a proper sit down with her and let her describe to you how she envisions the perfect dress and see if you’re both on the same page or not. You do not want to look out of place at your own wedding, and since that relationships are also partnerships, you’ve got to find a way to work it out with your future Mrs. 

3- We know how excited you must be to finally get married to the love of your life, and so, you’ll both need to stand out on your wedding day because yes, unfortunately, all eyes will be on the two of you all the time. That’s why you should aim for unique, but not overwhelming. A suit that won’t steal the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. 

4- Go for a tux if the wedding’s taking place during nighttime, especially if your mind is set on going fancy. Try to have a little fun and add some color if you’re more on the hipster side. Navy and grey are really in now.

5- The sure thing is that you can replace the classical black suit, but that doesn't mean you should. It's always better to stick to classic colors like grey, royal blue, and white. 

6- You should really consider throwing in a vest, trust us. Vests add a layer of dimension to your outfit and help you achieve that nice, tailored look.
