One of the most exciting aspects of commissioning a custom suit for your wedding is that you have full creative control in designing it from scratch. Of course for a first time client this can often be overwhelming with all the choices and options at hand, but we are here to help and make things a little less intimidating.
Let us start with the most common and popular, wool. A classic choice due to its versatility. Wool suits can be worn in any season and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Wool when woven in the right way is also a very breathable fabric, so it will keep you comfortable even if the wedding is in a warmer climate. But if woven slightly heavier with a brushed finish like a winter flannel can be perfect for fall weddings. The perfect option due to it’s ability to hold shape and drape fantastically on the body, achieving an amazing fit and silhouette.
Next, we have the infamous linen. Often people’s automatic thought for summer weddings due to it being among the most breathable and airy fabrics available. Linen suits are often seen in lighter colours such as cream, white or lighter shades of blue, but they can also be found in darker shades too. Due to being woven with flax, linen is a bit more difficult to wear than wool, as it creases extremely easily. This is what we love about it and something that should be embraced, but understand for something like a formal wedding it isn’t for everybody. However if your wedding is on a beach and has a more casual vibe it could be the perfect option.
Our number one choice for summer weddings is a blend of wool, silk and linen. All the benefits of the two options above with a touch of lustre from the silk to give a luxurious finish. The blend is made up of predominantly wool to ensure the suit holds it shape well and drapes on the body nicely, the linen is then added to give great breathability in warmer weather. The silk makes up the last 10%, to give smoothness and lustre as linen and wool are not as soft and comfortable to wear in warmer climates. The perfect blend to keep you cool, comfortable and feeling like a million bucks on the big day.
Choosing the right material for your wedding suit is one of the most important decisions. Be sure to consider all of the options before making your final choice. Always consider the climate of your wedding location, as well as thing like how often you want to wear the suit again. With a little bit of research and our expertise, you are sure to find the perfect cloth for your wedding suit, ensuring you turn heads for all the right reasons on your special day.
