We all talk about the perfect bridal gown but what about the perfect fit for the groom?! In this week's blog I'm going to talk about my top 3 tips for choosing the perfect fit for grooms. Surely your style and your personal taste are very important when it comes to buying a suit, but to choose the right suit for your wedding you need to consider some factors such as color, style and accessories.
Tip #1 Color
The color of the groom's attire is important because you want it to coordinate with the colors of your wedding. You want the color to match the formality of the wedding you are having (yes there are different colors for the type of formality.) You may want to have a more formal wedding so black may be your best choice or maybe your want a more relaxed event so you pick teal for example. You should also think about the setting of your wedding when picking out the color for your groom.
Tip #2 Style
Three-piece suit in blue is the classic suit colour for most weddings, the blue has various variations in colour to choose from according to your personality. The options are solid blue, cobalt blue, dark blue or midnight blue – in wool or blend (wool & cotton or wool & silk). Go for a three buttons suit, single vent, four buttons on the sleeve, with jetted pockets.
If the wedding is going to happen on the beach or you want to ditch the classic look and go for something more fresh search for lighter colours in a three-piece. Colours like off-white, light grey, beige or light blue.
Fabric for this kind of wedding suit can be either wool and silk blend which adds a little shine to your look, or cotton and linen blend which is more for casual, relaxed wedding vibe – but remember always a three-piece otherwise it is too informal standing next to the perfectly dressed bride.The suit should be a three buttoned suit with double vents, three buttons on the sleeve, with jetted or flap pockets. If you like experimenting go for a double-breasted jacket.
Tip #3 Accessories
Accessorizing your look is what is going to tie everything together. When choosing your shirt ensure that it looks good with the color of your suit. When in doubt wear a white shirt and you'll be certain it will look good and fresh. You can decide to wear a pocket square along with a boutonniere or either one. Your pocket square should match the colors of your wedding. Shoes are an important part of your outfit. You want to make sure that you have comfortable shoes as you will be wearing these all day and you want them to match your suit so they complement and tie up your style.
