Buying A Wedding Suit

A wedding is an official occasion where the dress code is one of the most highlighted items on the to-do list. Choosing a wedding suit may seem like a typical walk-in task, but there are many factors which should be considered.

Correct measurement is key to a great wedding suit

Here are some tips which can help in determining the right formal wear for your Wedding Day.


Where you are buying a ready-made or custom-tailored suit, you should always consider having the right sizes taken by a professional. Wrong measurements can cost you the entire outfit, increase your costs for resizing and alter the initial design considerably. With the right measurements you can happily shop ready-made suits reducing time and stress. If you are considering importing or buying your suit online you also need to be sure of the right measurements before making an order.

Having the right colour for the wedding theme is one of the fundamental factors to consider when shopping for wedding suits. Weddings held in the hot seasons will go well with bright coloured outfits while those held during winter do better with dark suits. There should be a slight resemblance of the bridesmaids’ dresses and grooms suits which can be achieved by using ties or shirts with closely matching colours, as well as the decors used in the occasion. Always ensure that the wedding suit will blend well with the theme of the event .

When choosing men’s formal wear, the wedding suits should be well fitting from the top on the shoulders, to the legs to create comfort when sitting down. Avoid shirts that are too tight on the chests and arms as they will feel uncomfortable on such a long day. Baggy shirts also tend to crease when tucked in and should be avoided at all costs.

Groom and Groomsmen

For the grooms men, it is advisable that they buy or get their suits made from the same place so that they can have a uniform suit colour and design per the preference of the groom.  The groom should also ensure that all the groomsmen’s suits are as per his specification early enough before the wedding date.
