How to Dress for your Wedding – Men’s Styles
The outfit, suit or dress you choose for your wedding will depend on many factors, for example:
- body type
- personal preferences
- Your cultural preferences
- The season of your wedding
- time of your wedding
- and theme of your wedding
Typically, unless you choose something very ornate, a man’s suit could be worn to other formal occasions, such as a formal dinner affair, graduation, etc. Take the time to find the best outfit – above all, buy for comfort and quality.
Visit several retailers in the local malls – try on several and see how you look and feel in them. You and your bride have a BIG day ahead – from photos before the ceremony, the ceremony itself and all the after-wedding celebrations. You will be in that suit for several hours that day – be comfortable and enjoy the big event!
How to Dress for your Wedding
Once you have found a style you like and you have your measurements in hand, whether you plan to buy online or from a retailer, order EARLY! Unless you plan to gain or lose a lot of weight, your body won’t change much. By ordering early, you will have your suit and can have the alterations done in a timely manner.
How to Dress for your Wedding – The Season
- Choose wrinkle-free fabrics
- Summer weddings– a lightweight fabric such as a linen blend
- Winter weddings – made of tweeds, wool-cashmere
- If your suit will be custom made, choose a quality fabric that goes with the color theme
Your grooms men will need suits as well – plan an evening with your men to visit some local retailers. Many will give deep discounts if they know they will be outfitting the entire wedding party.
Good luck on your wedding day!
