Hi everyone! Thank you for reading Suits Avenue’s blog!
Today we are going to show you the proper attire to wear to a wedding!
First, you will need to start with a nice dress shirt
For a formal occasion like a wedding, it is best to stick with solid color undershirts, the most common shirts are white or black, depending on the color of your suit.
Next, you will need to find a tight-fitting vest.
It is best to get a tight-fitting vest so your jacket will easily form with your body so it doesn’t look baggy or too big.
Now, you need nice, ironed dress paints and a matching blazer.
When purchasing your jacket there are a few key things to look for
Now, you will need nice dress shoes and a matching tie.
It is okay to have a pattern or some type of design, however, never have the same pattern style or type on multiple pieces. It is meant to be a little accent to your outfit, not the whole outfit.
The jacket sleeve hem should fall at the wristbone with about one-fourth to one half inch of the shirt cuff showing below.
The bottom hem of the jacket should cover the butt and the vent shouldn’t pull open. If it does, that means it’s too tight.
The collar should lay flat on the back and sides of the neck without any gaps or bulges.
Pants should fit comfortably when standing and sitting and break across the top of the shoes so they cover the top one-third.
A bow tie should fit snugly around the collar.
Below are some more quality tips to spruce up your style on your wedding day!
Waist coats are the perfect vintage accessory – whatever the era, season or venue! Layered under a jacket, in matching or contrasting material, they look dapper and add some extra warmth for an Autumn or Winter wedding. Or they smarten up a simple shirt, whilst looking more casual than a jacket – and infinitely cooler for a Spring or Summer wedding…..
Whether functional or purely decorative, braces/suspenders are the accessory of choice for the more relaxed, rustic, casual wedding Match them to the shirt or suit for a smart subtle look, or be daring and choose a contrasting colour to the suit but match them to the ties, shirt or shoes. Oh and if he decides to go with a patterned pair be sure to keep the shirt plain.
This is a statement look not for everyone, but tweeds, houndstooth and plaid are fun and stylish fabrics for a bold groom looking to channel his inner country gentleman! Even in a suit these textured textiles have the knack of looking more rustic and casual than formal; but at the same time, as the fabric of choice for the aristocracy (according to Downton Abbey) they suggest luxury and elegance…..
The bow tie is the epitome of vintage chic for any gent! Fashionable since the 18th century choose from floral, velvet, tweed or even sequinned for a smart look with a hint of fun…..
What I mean by this is actually putting your clothing on and wearing it for a bit. Feel free to wear it around the house to get comfortable with it on or even during a day at work.
Just be careful not to damage the outfit in any way!
If you buy a new pair of shoes for your wedding also ensure that you break these in prior. There is nothing worse than sore, uncomfortable feet!
This pointer is extremely critical!
Your woman is an important part of the preparation of your wedding but be sure to add your input as well.
Offer direction and guidance to your groomsmen in terms of what clothing they should wear right up to the accessories.
Once you do, make sure you have this communicated to her. If you have done your research and have taken “the bull by the horns” she should be onboard with this.
Communication is key in life. Besides, taking part in a wedding that you feel have directly contributed to makes it that much better.
