There are few moments more important than your wedding day. As a groom, it is essential to look your best when you walk down the aisle. This means finding the perfect suit to represent who you are, and one that fits the occasion. Here is a groom’s guide to help you select the perfect suit for your wedding day:
Choose the Right Color
Choosing the color of the suit is a crucial decision for the groom. Traditionally, tuxedos are black or midnight blue. However, as more couples look to create a unique wedding aesthetic, vibrant colors are becoming more common. Whatever color you choose, make sure it compliments the colors in your wedding. Gray and navy are always timeless options.
Find the Right Fit
A well fitting suit is essential on such a special day. A groom should invest the time to correctly measure for his suit and either purchase a custom made suit, or visit a tailor for alteration. Also, if you’re going to rent a suit, be sure to arrange for a fitting before the wedding day.
Choose a Tie
Grooms can stand out with the right tie or bowtie. If you’re looking to match the wedding’s color scheme, then a patterned or solid tie is a perfect choice. Alternatively, if you are looking for a bit of fun, try a bowtie with a unique pattern or color.
Accessories are essentials when you select your suit. Cufflinks can be an engagement gift from the bride, or a family heirloom handed down to you. Socks should match the rest of the suit, or you can add a bit of personality with a pop of color. Other accessories to consider include lapel pins, pocket squares, and a belt or suspenders.
Have Fun With It!
Your wedding suit is a representation of you. Have fun with it and make it a unique experience. Feel free to experiment with various styles, colors, and accessories. Above all, make sure the suit feels comfortable and looks great on you, as you will be wearing it on the most special day of your life!
