Wedding Suits; the hottest ones this year!

Wedding Suits; the Hottest Ones this Year!

 

Weddings. Everyone had their ideal wedding, but some things pop up more than others. A big cake, a white dress (more on this later,) hand-written invitations, and pretty flowers are just a few.

Another thing that comes up often (not as often as dresses though,) is tuxedos. But seeing increasing surges of popularity every year lately, is wedding suits.

 

No, you didn’t read that wrong; wedding suits.

Wedding suits are exactly what they sound like: suits that someone wears to a wedding. And no, I’m not talking about the clothes the guests wear. I’m talking about the actual groom’s wedding duds.

 

No one knows exactly why, but more and more brides are seeing fit to put their grooms in suits for their wedding. Designers and manufacturers are quickly taking notice. And so as a result, there are more options than ever for good wedding suits nowadays.

 

Looking for the most popular wedding suits? Look no further.

But as you flick through Pinterest for ideas for your own wedding, you’ll surely come across some suits quite often. These are the champions that stand out among the others as the most popular wedding suits. I’ll be going over them generally, by color and by fit. More descriptive lists can be found in future articles.

 

The fit

Notice the narrowed shoulders, fitted pants and slight taper in the waist area; all qualities of a fitted wedding suit.

Generally, the most popular wedding suits all seem to follow one trend in particular: they’re all fitted suits. Fitted suits have swept the world and replaced standard cut outfits as the go-to for that modern look.

And for good reason: a fitted outfit is a great way to really bring out the good qualities in a person’s physique.

 

The colors

Now here, I’m not talking about vest, tie or shirt colors. I’m talking about the actual colors of the wedding suits themselves.

Suits can be seen in just about any color you can imagine. This is especially true since people sometimes use suit colors to stand out. These people will go for something that jumps, even if it doesn’t necessarily look good, like bright orange (Kraft Punk, anyone?) or also pink.

But by and large, for people serious about their wedding the most popular colors remain the same. Tones like dark grey, light grey, navy blue, cobalt, and even tan are quite common. Black suits aren’t as desirable as they used to be; these are more favorable for funerals or business meetings.

But as the Canadians say: ‘Fill your boots!’

These are some of the more popular wedding suits. But it’s your wedding; go with whatever feels best!

How to be a good groomsman

Becoming a good groomsman

A good groomsman; will you be one? Perhaps you’ve just been asked to be one in a friend’s wedding party. The lessons in how to be a good groomsman are pretty simple, and most of them are really just common sense. But, for those that need some help, here’s some lessons in how to be a good groomsman.

 

First, and this is probably the most important tip in how to be a good groomsman: if you have negative opinions about marriage, keep them to yourself. It doesn’t matter if you are used to being yourself around them, just don’t do it. It doesn’t matter how many Netflix originals you’ve watched about miserable marriages; it’s no help to the groom, and it’s definitely no help to the bride, and it will make you a drag on the entire affair.

More Tips

Another important tip for how to be a good groomsman, is to not procrastinate with any of your duties. Don’t worm your way out of helping the groom pick things if he asks for help. I know it’s usually the best man’s job to plan the bachelor party (if there is one,) but offer your help anyway…he’ll appreciate it, and it will elevate you in his eyes and the groom’s. And please, don’t show up late to get your measurements for your tuxedo; I’ve seen firsthand the problems that can create not just for you, but for the groom as well. Less than ten days before the wedding is late, but you’ll ideally be in more like twenty days before.

 

Last but certainly not the least important tip in how to be a good groomsman is this: handle yourself with class at the wedding. Yes, absolutely do dance, have fun, laugh with everyone. But don’t be that guy that gets so drunk he pukes, dances so foolishly he rips his tuxedo, or so tactless he hits on every woman at the wedding. People will definitely remember. And if you’re a good groomsman, people will remember that, too.
