Hey fellas, have you decided what you’re going to wear on your big day? If not, we can help you out with a few simple tips! There are only a few guidelines to keep in mind when choosing your wedding day attire.
Choose a suit you can wear again
Since this is your wedding, you may feel the urge to go all out. Maybe you’re looking at bright, exotic colors, or you want to wear a bold pattern, and that’s totally fine. However, you may want to think twice before you make a final decision. If you plan to have something custom made, or even if you just plan to splurge on something off the rack, you may want to go with something you can wear again and again. Unlike a bridal gown, a groom’s suit is something you could potentially get years of use out of, especially if you choose wisely on design.
You can never go wrong with a white button up
No matter what you choose as far as your suit color goes, you should always pair it with a white shirt. While yes, a white shirt is a little on the plain side, you can always dress it up with a colorful pocket square and tie. White will literally go with any color you choose. Plus, if you are getting married in the warmer months, white hides perspiration better than any other color. So less worry about moisture showing through on your big day!
Your outfit should compliment your bride
As long as you choose something that compliments your bride’s outfit, you should be in the clear. While yes, you should wear exactly what you want on your wedding day, it won’t hurt to ask the bride what she thinks of your choices! Plus, if you’re struggling to make a decision, she can guide you on what colors and/or patterns to look for. It never hurts to ask the love of your life for help, even with the small things in life.
At first glance, formal wear may seem complicated and overwhelming, but it’s really not. As long as you keep a few simple guidelines in mind, you’ll look sharp walking down that aisle.
