When it comes to your wedding, you want to find a suit that fits you perfectly. But how do you find the right suit for your big day? You want to look the part, so there are a few steps that you should take in order to find a suit that suits your style and frame.
1. Think about what color you want
Firstly, think about what color suit you want. This can depend on what season you are getting married in, personal preference and if you want to match your suit to both your groomsmen and the bridesmaids. There is an array of options to choose from, from block colors, to herringbone, plaid and patterned. You need to choose a suit that you’re comfortable wearing and that will add a touch of your personality. To find the right color for you, you should research online before heading to the tailors to see what they have to offer. This will give you a better idea of what you want before going to try it on and get it fitted.
2) Consider the fit
In order to feel comfortable and look suave, you need a suit that fits you correctly. Many retailers offer custom suits and shirts that are perfect for all types of frames and will make you feel comfortable on the big day. There are three main types of suit fits available – regular, slim and tailored. Each with their own advantages, the suit you choose will depend on your personal preference.
3) Think about what fabric you want
The type of fabric you choose will reflect on the price of the suit. For example, wool and tweed tend to be on the more expensive end of the spectrum. If you are getting married in the winter, you will want a suit that’s a bit heavier, whereas in the summer you might opt for a linen suit which will keep you cool.
4) Think about your accessories
Yes, you start by choosing what suit you want. But then you have to think about what accessories you need to add to the outfit. Adding an injection of personality, it’s important to find accessories that match your suit – from the color to the pattern (if you have one) that’s on it. Examples of accessories are ties, bowties, cufflinks, pocket squares, cummerbunds and shoes. A pocket square will add an elegant flair, as will the cufflinks. Alternatively, if you want a more traditional suit, a cummerbund and bowtie is your best option. Your shoes will also have to match your suit and be comfortable so that you can wear them all day.
At the end of the day, the suit and accessories you choose will be up to you. Do some research, go to tailors and think about the type of wedding you’re having. If you are having a traditional wedding, choose a traditional suit. For a more modern, rustic wedding, a linen or tweed suit might be just the ticket.
