Picking the best wedding suit

Picking the best wedding suit for my event


If you’ve been glancing at wedding pictures on sites like pinterest or instrgram, no doubt you’ve noticed a trend. Suits are slowly becoming commonplace attire at weddings…for the groom and groomsmen, not just the guests.


No doubt this coincides with a sort of trend toward ‘dressing down,’ so to speak. But picking a suit can be a bit more challenging than picking a tuxedo.


This is mostly because there’s so many different choices when it comes to your wedding suits. Tuxedos come in a small variety of colors, including black, white, ivory, burgundy, grey, navy…mostly flat, darker tones. Suits, however, come in a much larger variety of colors; dark or light, neutral or dazzling, single or multiple colors. There’s so many more choices that it can make picking one a bit more difficult!


So, with this in mind, I’ve taken the liberty of laying out some tips for picking the best wedding suit. And maybe they’re not really tips, more like things to consider.

Stick with more neutral colors for the wedding suit itself.


          Generally these colors work best with anything that’s put behind them, or next to them. You want to try and avoid colors that pop way too much, like orange or yellow or turquoise. This might be fine if you’re going to prom, but it’s too flashy for a wedding. After all, you’re trying to look like you’re getting married, not trying out to be a game show host.


Not only that, but a brightly-colored wedding suit is more restrictive than it’s darker counterparts. You’re limiting yourself when it comes to vests and ties to wear with it. For example, a purple suit looks terrible with a lime green or orange vest. A nice tan suit, on the other hand, looks good with a much bigger variety of vests.


Try to avoid ‘boardroom colors.’


You want to look like you’re getting married to the love of your life. Think to yourself: if someone saw you in your chosen wedding suit, WITHOUT the bride or the wedding décor around you. Would they think you were getting married? Or would they think you were going to a job interview, boardroom meeting, or day at the office?


Anything besides black of grey is fair game, in my opinion. Now I’m not saying you shouldn’t pick a black or grey wedding suit. All I’m saying is that if you do, give it a bit more scrutiny than you normally would. Pick one with a bit less of a stuffy look to it. And if possible, pair it with some different color vests and ties.

In conclusion


          My word is not fashion law when it comes to your outfit, it’s merely advice. Your best judge for how you look, will be you. Just put your wedding suit on, and look at yourself in the mirror. Ask yourself, “Do I look good in this? Will I look good standing next to my spouse?” If the answer to both of those questions is yes, then full steam ahead, I say.

Suits made easy

Suits made easy; picking the best one for you!


It’s no secret that suits are more common than their more formal counterpart, tuxedos. But lately, suits are becoming more commonplace for proms, formal events, even for grooms!


Sure, suits aren’t the best thing you could put on, and you could stand to do better with a tux. But suits are still good; at least it’s not getting married in cargo shirts and a button-up.


But if you thought there were lots of options for tuxes, then you haven’t seen anything yet. The recent popularity explosion with men’s dress items (largely due to hipster culture) has affected the supply. Like a tsunami following an earthquake, men all over the world are now drowning in suit options!


Finding the right suits for me


With all the options out there, you might be wondering where you stand in all of this. It’s easy to point at a picture of a model wearing a suit in GQ and say “That’s the one for me!”


Hold on a second, there. Suits might look pretty much the same to you, but there are small differences. I’ll go over some of these differences and help you pick the best one for you.

Does fitted look good on me?


“Fitted” garments are all the rage right now, and for good reason. Fitted suits can bring out the best qualities in a person’s build, and compliment their form. A fitted outfit can make even the scrappiest guy look a bit more strapping!


But the problems with fitted suits arise when people who are too large try to wear them. It’s one thing if you’re a big guy, and you’re wearing a fitted outfit that’s tailor-made for you. But custom-made outfits can cost hundreds more than off-the-rack suits, and most people aren’t willing to spend that kind of scratch on an outfit…especially just a coat and pant.


But if you’re a big guy and you insist on a fitted set that’s off the rack, it most likely won’t look great. Fitted suits are meant to compliment a few different body types. And with all due respect, if you’re too overweight, that body type isn’t yours.


Instead, look for a suit that has a standard fit. This will allow you to be more comfortable while wearing it, and better compliments your body type. Heavier guys can have a certain appeal all their own when wearing properly fitted suits. The right one exudes power and commands a room with its presence. But if you look like you stuffed yourself into a navy-blue sausage casing, you won’t get that effect.

Go somewhere that lets you try on


          If buying online is a bad idea for rentals, it’s a TERRIBLE idea for buying an outfit. Try it on, and make sure that you’re comfortable in it, and people think you look good in it. Most important, make sure YOU like the way you look in it. Suits should spike your confidence, not make you look at your body flaws.


It’s also helpful if you don’t go to buy outfits with a group of ‘yes men.’ Make sure whomever you take with you is someone who will be honest and tell you if something looks bad. I would want to know the suits I was buying looked bad. Especially if I was shelling out that kind of money.
