Your bride-to-be has probably taken care of everything else, all that she’s asked you to do is choose yours’ and your groomsmen’s suits. The problem is, you just don’t know where to start. Don’t worry; we’ve got your back on this one.
When it comes to selecting the perfect suit for you and your groomsmen, it’s not about the cost, but the cut. An expensive suit that’s badly cut can look horrendous. While a more budget-friendly suit that’s perfectly tailored, can look amazing. Remember, it’s all in the cut, not the cost.
Of course, it’s not just the cut that needs to be taken into account, also the colour, style, and whether the chosen design works well for everyone. You know how bridesmaid dresses can be a nightmare to choose because everyone has different body shapes? Well, the same applies when it comes to suit shopping for you and your groomsmen.
The good news is that suit shopping doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Take the tips and advice below on board, and you can ensure that you find the perfect suits.
Renting might be a more affordable option, but there’s a lot of downsides to it. The suits aren’t tailored to your body, so they never fit properly. The other downside is that sometimes rented suits can look cheap.
Plus, you don’t really want to get married in something that someone else has worn, do you? Invest in your wedding and buy your tuxes – when you see the picture you’ll be glad that you did.
Go for tailored
As we’ve mentioned above, the cut of the suit is what makes it. That’s why when it comes to choosing a suit style, it’s always best to go tailored. Regardless of yours’ or your groomsmen’s builds, a tailored suit is always the best option.
Make sure that the material you choose is a firm one, as thin, flimsy material won’t look or feel good. Even tailored suits made in flimsy materials don’t look good as the material isn’t strong enough to hold the cut. If you don’t want a suit that looks shapeless and scruffy, be careful to choose a material that’s firm and will hold.
Get the colour right
The chances are that your wife-to-be has told you what colour suit to go for – if she hasn’t make sure to double check. Once you find a suit in the colour she’s requested, it’s probably best to send her a picture to ensure it’s the right shade. The last thing you want is to select the wrong shade of grey and ruin the entire wedding!
Be selective about the accessories
As well as a suit, to go with it, you’ll need shoes, a tie, a waist coat, etc., as will your groomsmen. So it’s important to take your time when choosing these items, to ensure that you get them right. The chances are that your bride has told you what colour to go for, but if not, check. Once you’ve found ties, shoes, waistcoat, etc., in the desired shades, send your partner a picture so that she can give the colours a once over.
There you have it, everything that you need to know about finding the perfect suit for you and your groomsmen. Happy shopping!
