Dress For Groom Success
It goes without saying that the groom plays an important role in every wedding. Without him, there wouldn’t be a wedding at all! So when you’re planning a wedding and, perhaps one of the most critical steps, choosing the attire, what the groom and his best men will be wearing is crucial.
Because there is so much more to a suit than just picking out a tie. Depending on what kind of wedding you’re having, the suit the groom is wearing can change.
The Dress Suit
If you’re in a formal, classic mood, then you cannot go wrong with the dress suit. This is the kind of ensemble you’d most likely see at a royal wedding, worn by the cream of the crop across the country.
A dress suit consists of a tailcoat, waistcoat and trousers (which are usually striped) and adds a sense of old-world elegance to whoever is wearing it. If you’re going for a full-on, formal wedding and want the groom to match that theme, then a dress suit is the route you want to go. Pair with a gorgeous tie (and a merovingian knot), a pair of patent leather shoes and you’re all set.
This is a particularly popular option if you’re having a morning wedding, keeping in theme with elite morning party attire throughout history.
The Classic Tuxedo
There’s isn’t a single way you can go wrong with a tuxedo. And if your wedding is happening in the evening, then this classic formal look is your best bet.
The ensemble consists of a jacket, trousers and, if you feel like being extra, a cummerbund. The understated elegance and undeniable stylish appeal of a tuxedo suit will never go out of fashion and you cannot go wrong. Remember, though, to keep things strictly black-tie — too much colour in a tuxedo can make it look tacky and outdated. And if you feel like being ultra formal, add a bowtie.
Modern Day Suit
If formal dress is not going to fit with the overall theme of your wedding, and you want to try something that’s a bit more casual, then a modern day suit is the perfect choice.
The most common type of suit you’ll find these days is one that is slim fit: a jacket and trousers and, in some cases, a waistcoat. You can even try a double-breasted jacket if you’re feeling fashion forward. The best thing about modern day suits, however, is that you can play with the colours and fabric to your heart’s content. If you’ve got your heart set on plum colours, then a modern day suit is how you’re going to achieve that particular theme.
The main pieces of a suit aside, accessorising is also a step that is sometimes overlooked. There are plenty of ways to add little touches of class and elegance to any suit you’re wearing.
Whether that’s investing in a good watch, or some custom cufflinks, accessories are often that last little thing needed to complete a good look. A pocket square is often a great way to add a little touch of colour to a black and white look, and if you’re wearing a tie, then a tie pin adds a little bling and a little shine without being overbearing.
Overall, wedding fashion extends far beyond finding the perfect dress — having a beautiful gown won’t mean as much if you’re not pairing it with an equally beautiful suit, one that makes an elegant and stylish memory for the groom.
