Do you have a wedding coming along? Well, congratulations if you do. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, and the important things can slip your mind if you are not careful. Fortunately, the bride is usually the one in charge of several activities regarding the wedding. This means you get to have the opportunity to handle other important matters concerning the wedding and yourself. One of the important things you get to handle as the groom is getting the wedding suits and accessories for yourself and your groom’s men.
As the groom, the wedding suit concerns you and is thus your responsibility. For this reason, you cannot get anything wrong because it is all about you. For more helpful tips on how to get wedding suits in London, contact us through email or calls.
How do you begin?
To avoid making mistakes at the last minute, it is better to start making arrangements for your wedding suits at least 6 – 9 months before your wedding date or anniversary.
Making the arrangements early enough will help you get everything right and also make it easier for any issues that may arise to be handled on time. Additionally, you will feel confident and good about yourself knowing that you have covered everything.
When it comes to wedding suits, the key to picking the right one is to go for a contemporary classic instead of following a trend. Remember that this is the most important day of your life, so you have to make an impact and, at the same time, feel and look good.
Types of wedding suits
Certain things define your wedding outfit. They include the season of the wedding, the venue, and whether it is a formal or informal wedding. Based on these factors, the groom has four choices in terms of outfit, and they include morning dress, tailcoat, tuxedo, and a three-piece suit.
- Morning dress
A morning dress is a suit for the groom if the wedding is a very formal daytime affair. The morning dress consists of a morning coat or a half morning coat, a waistcoat, and trousers.
The tailcoat is ideal if your tradition demands it strictly. The tailcoat is considered the most elegant attire of all eveningwear and perhaps the most delicate to get right. Pair the tailcoat with high-waisted trousers with double braiding at sides, a white Marcella shirt, and a waistcoat with white gloves to complete the outfit.
While talking about shoes, pumps made from fine and shiny patent leather are preferred. Most formal pumps decorate with a silk grosgrain bow. Cufflinks and studs are not optional but a must-have accessory while attending a white tie event.
The tuxedo is worn if your wedding is an extremely formal affair that is meant to happen after 6 pm. The tuxedo is always accompanied by a waistband, shawl, peaked lapels, and of course, a silk bow tie.
- Three-piece suit
This is the best option, especially for a contemporary groom. This suit always finds its way through tradition and style. You can have the luxury of choosing any color or fabric, and this, of course, still depends on the type of wedding and the season.
Important things to note
Waistcoats are very important unless you are planning to wear a tuxedo. As one of the stars of the party, a two-piece suit would not look great, as you are mean to wear formal outfits for the ceremony. On the plus side, there are benefits attach to wearing waistcoats with your three-piece suits.
While the waistcoat can have 3 or 4 buttons based on your choice, you can even get the waistcoat in the same tone with your suit for a more formal or sober look.
On the other hand, you can achieve a more polished look with cream or ivory-colored waistcoat. You can get it in one that complements your suit. For a final touch of elegance, you can add a touch of pearl button on the waistcoat.
- Colour and fabric
When making your choice of dress shirt for the suit, take note of the color and fabric. Although white is generally seen and accepted as the best option, it is not the only option. White dress shirts make the suit’s color pop, and it creates a clean, crisp look. Moreover, it matches the dress of the bride.
Furthermore, you do not have to match the color of the ties of your groomsmen to the dresses of the bridesmaids. You can always do your own thing and incorporate your style into your wedding, provided it turns out perfectly in the end. This is always why it is important to make these plans months ahead of the wedding.
