It’s that time of your life when you’ve to gear up and suit up for probably one of the most important events of your life. Before we begin, congratulations! You’re here because your partner has said YES! Now it’s time to get hitched. When it comes to planning your wedding, it isn’t just limited to planning the guest list and venue. It involves you looking your best self too! But how to go about it? Don’t worry, we are here to help.
Now, the million dollar question, how to pick your D-Day suit? Continue reading, and thank us later!
Never buy a suit of the rack, never! Why? First, you’d have a very limited range of options to choose from. Second, needless to say, it’s highly likely that the suit wouldn’t fit you well, at all. What’s the point of shelling your money and not getting its worth? Just investing a little more effort in getting a Custom-Tailored suit is worth it. Trust us; you’ll do yourself a favor. And this is what we specialize in, to tailor the best suit of your life with precision.
Often couples want to keep their wedding attire a surprise for their spouse on the wedding day, and we get it. But it’s always preferable to discuss your wedding suit with your partner so that your wedding suit complements each other, and don’t feel out of place.
While choosing the material for your custom-tailored wedding suit, make sure they carry the right “weight”, that is, you can go for bulkier fabrics, such as wool, or cashmere, if you’re tying the knot during the winters, and you can opt for lighter fabrics, like linen or khaki if your wedding is during the summers.
There’s a fine line between and a suit and a tuxedo. Tuxedos have satin lapels, buttons covered with satin, and a satin piping along the lines of the trouser leg. Other aspects are quite similar to that of a suit. Now, what should you choose? It’s totally up to you and what you want to wear. There’s no thumb rule of whether to opt for a tuxedo or a suit for your wedding. But if you are having a very formal wedding the Tuxedo might be the way to go!
Add your personal charm to your suit. Explore button styles, linings, ties and even cufflinks. But one point that you should remember is, never overdo your accessories. It’s okay to have customized exotic cufflinks and plain buttons, or vice versa, but both of these together shouldn’t be styled as highlights.
Your suit shouldn’t be tailored in such a way that it pulls at your buttons, nor should it be too baggy or airy. It should nip at your waist but doesn’t pull at your buttons.
Trouser breaks are the wrinkles on your pants above the shoes. It’s about striking the right balance. They shouldn’t be completely absent so that your pants fall like curtains, and they shouldn’t be so much that you look straight out of the 40s! Keep the right amount of crease for the perfect look. Don’t worry, we will take care of that.
If you’re wondering how long your pant legs should be, you can keep a thumb rule in mind that the pant ends should touch your shoelaces. With all these discussed, how can we not talk about the styling tips?
Unlike popular belief, tying a tie is not as difficult as you think it to be. Just practice twice or thrice and you’ll get the hang of any kind of knot you want to make. But, practice it beforehand to make the perfect knot on the D-Day! Hope we could clear some of your doubts regarding your big day. Any questions? Feel free to give us a call or send an email.
Now, this rule applies not only to men’s wedding suits, but other kind of suits, like business suits as well. Always, and we emphasise on this – always keep the bottom button of your suit open, unless of course it’s just a one-button suit. Honestly, we don’t know why it is there in the first place, when it doesn’t serve its purpose, but this is how it is!
