Part 5 – Wedding Suit Guide

blog-innerimg2Weddings are more about women than about men. There is so much material written about weddings and women. What should they wear, their dress, their hair and the makeup. They are important decisions as big dollars are involved. But what about the groom?

Regardless of the setting of the wedding or the formality of the wedding I think grooms should put thought and effort for one of the most important days of your life.
As discussed in the previous blogs there are absolute no alternatives to a tailor made suit for your big day. If you are thinking of renting a suit, don’t. Full stop! No groom should have a rental suit for his wedding.

Your wedding day is when you will be photographed more than any other day of your life. So you need to answer the question if I would like to be remembered in a tacky, ill fitted, worn a hundred times by other grooms suit or in a well fitted, specifically designed suit for me.

Once you have decided to get a suit tailor made for you, then arises the million dollar question “what  is the most appropriate suit for D day?”,  This is where it will all depend on the wedding, the location and formality of the wedding. We have discussed different types of suits for the wedding in our previous

In this blog we will discuss wedding suit fabric composition, colors and weights –


Let’s start with Composition of your suit fabric as this is the most important factor about the suit as this will influence the price of your wedding suit, so it’s good to know what you are paying for.

In a good quality suit the outer fabric usually is pure wool, pure wool wedding suits are highly recommended as not only it has rich look to it unlike the polyester blend counter parts which can have a “shiny” look and leave shine marks from dry cleaning but also for the fact that pure wool fabrics are breathable so you can wear them for spring and summer weddings as well.

There are different types of wool fabrics such as Marino wool and cashmere wool but they come with their own price tag.

Other popular option for summer wedding is linen suits especially if the wedding is on the beach.

blog-innerimg2Fabric weight:

While selecting you wedding suit fabric the weight of the wool fabric is also a vital consideration. The lower the weight of the fabric the better it is for warmer months of the year and it is a vis-a-versa for winter weddings. So if you are getting married in winter then you should be looking at pure wool suits of higher weight per yard.


For Day time garden wedding – Most preferred colour options would be greys, lighter charcoals, and French Navy. If you want to experiment with your colors then browns and tans could be a good option.

Beach Weddings – For a beach wedding most grooms prefer white and why not as white linen suit create a debonair vintage look. Other popular colors are beige, khaki and brown.

Formal Weddings – Dinner suits and Tuxedos come with a standard color chart, which consistent of black, white and midnight blue.
