Wedding Suits – A Guide Before You Shop

Finding the perfect suit for your wedding day is a massive deal. There are lots of different ways to go about it, hitting the high street, booking a personal shopping experience, hiring your suit from a tailor or even having a bespoke outfit made for you. Chances are before you get married, you’ll have worn a suit at some point. So you might know whether you’d like a slim cut or something more traditional. You might also have an idea of what colours suit you and what colours will work with your wedding decor. Or your wedding suit brief may be that you just want to avoid anything that feels too ‘workwear’.

Today we’re focusing on the finer details – collar types and cuffs, as well as the style options for any of you who may feel a little intimidated by the amount of choice out there. There is no right or wrong when it comes to dressing for your big day – we’ve seen it all here at RMW. Trainers, flip flops, shorts, top hats and tails – anything goes, as long as you’re comfortable and feel like you. You can check out some real groom style here.

And just in case any of the ladies are reading this feeling a little jealous, we’ve published a similar feature on finding your perfect wedding dress.

Of course, the guides above may be helpful if you’re looking for a traditional wedding suit style. But if you want to branch out a bit, or get some more ideas on the other options available, we’ve rounded up a ton of inspiration on the this groom’s suit trends post. We also chatted to groom Ben about his experience with suit shopping on our podcast so you can listen to that as well. And don’t forget to go and have a look at our grooms Pinterest board too.

  1. One good tip I always found with buying a suit, was to find a good tailor, and have the suit altered to fit properly. Sadly many men buy off the peg and put up with that rumpled look.
