Suit Styles and Colours

Hank, on March 26, 2021 at 22:41 Posted in Wedding fashion 0 15

Lots of discussions about dresses on Weddingwire but I want to put some spotlight on the gents (and ladies who opt to wear suits instead of dresses)! What made you decide on that particular style, colour, or pattern?


Here are some traditional suits in solid colours that are versatile. They can be worn to work, to other events, and be dressed up or down for the function.

Suits also come in different patterns that make a statement.

Maybe you're opting for more unique for your wedding, even if it's less traditional?

Or maybe you prefer something much more casual but want to do more than just put on a shirt lol. A linen suit is great for outdoor summer weddings while sport coats look sharp. An odd waistcoat can further reduce the formality.

Dinner jackets are great for those who want black tie but don't like the rigid rules associated with it.

As for us, my fiancee told me her dress is "really formal" (without giving away too much on the details) and I've always wanted an excuse to wear a tuxedo again. We were originally getting married in winter so I opted for a black Coppley tuxedo, which my groomsmen also picked. But now that we're likely outside during the daytime, I'm thinking of going with a navy tuxedo instead (I own both, so it's no biggie). It'll lessen the contrast compared to the black one under the sun. I didn't want to make my guys spend more money on a second outfit and I didn't want to wear a regular suit while all the guys are wearing tuxedos.

I might still end up wearing the black one. September feels so far away right now that I might change my mind lol. Or I might wear both somehow.

    I'm sure you'll find something that speaks to you. And you'll end up saving so much money compared to a typical white dress!

    Right on! Do you have a more flamboyant dress style to go with that flair?

    The pic won't load (are you doing it from the app or the browser - I find the browser works way better than the app).

    Do you have the retailer link or is it custom?

    I can鈥檛 wait to get photos of him in it, but for now this is the only photo I have. I had to check colours against some DYI, so don鈥檛 mind the flowers (but we are going with the lefts ones if your curious about that lol).

    I love when someone rocks a unique custom suit or tux instead of a generic black, ill-fitting rental suite. People that wear suites need to express their individuality also! My fiance is wearing a tye dye blazer jacket, it looks way better than it sounds. I was a bit concerned when he said that is what he wanted, it turned out way better than I expected and I can't wait to see him on the day!

    My fiance is using the wedding as his excuse to finally get a bespoke suit, though with COVID we're no longer sure it's going to happen. We joked that his suit might end up being more than my dress, but I really hope he gets to do it!


    For the groomsmen, we didn't want to place too much burden on them to buy or rent custom suits, especially since one is plus size, so we're doing mismatched grey suits.

    My fianc茅 is wearing a really nice black suit that is from a fancy suit shop in town. He was going to do a custom suit but decided to go with one off the rack adjusted to fit him perfectly. He picked more budget friendly suits for the groomsmen at rw&co in a charcoal colour. It looks really nice together. The groomsmen suits came in quite a bit darker than we planned but they are still nice and look good

    My fiance and his best man will be wearing a navy suit with a white shirt and a gold tie. The flower in the picture will be different of course

    That was my thought! He already has a nice black suit but I thought that could be too dark for a spring wedding! So charcoal will be good to add to his collection!

    It's a very versatile option. Pretty much every colour combination on the planet works with grey/charcoal and he'll be able to rewear that for anything.

    My Fianc茅 will be wearing a charcoal suit and the groomsmen will be wearing grey. I've always wanted the men in grey suits but my Fianc茅 wanted to stand out a bit more! We are hoping to go look at suits next month! I will leave the style up to him!
