If you’re soon to be married then chances are you’ll want to learn what every Groom should know about buying a suit for his wedding. With some strategic planning ahead, advice on choosing the cut and colour of your suit and tips on getting the most from your suit after the wedding, you should soon be able to buy your wedding suit with ease.
Ideally you will have done some form of preparation before choosing a suit for your wedding such as discussing ideas with your partner, groomsmen, best man or family, and you may have definite ideas about what your suit will look and feel like. Making an appointment in advance to discuss your tailoring needs will allow time before the big day for any alterations and to get the fit just right.
Also arranging to take a friend or family member to your suit fitting whose opinion you trust will make the decision process easier. But above all remember to wear a suit that you feel comfortable in.
Choosing the cut and colour will be one of the biggest decisions in deciding on the correct wedding suit for you. Classic black, navy and grey never go out of style, in winter months heavier wool can work well and in summer, lighter linens and cottons can keep you cool even on the hottest days.
If you’re looking to add a splash of colour to your outfit, try matching your accessories to the colour scheme of the wedding, for example the floral arrangements or colour of the bridesmaids dresses.
A simple way of doing this is to include brightly coloured or patterned ties, handkerchiefs, waistcoats, cravats or with contrasting linings inside your suit jacket.
Buying, rather than renting, a suit will allow you to choose both a bespoke fit and a tailoring style unique to you. Investing in a suit in a classic colour that can be worn again, will double as a smart suit for many other formal occasions after the wedding itself. Also luxury fabrics for example mohair and cashmere can turn a classic suit into a special, bespoke piece, designed for comfort and longevity that is well worth the investment.

There is an impressive breadth of ways in which a suit can be accessorised; however, accessories aren't always suitable on all occasions where wearing a suit would be. You could make a major faux pas if you fail to heed this advice; therefore, it's worth educating yourself about what is appropriate and when. With the following tips, you can make the right impression in key situations.
Winter can be a testing season - not least as there can often be ice to scrape off the car, train cancellations due to brutal weather, and much greater difficulty in keeping warm.
