When it comes to wedding attire, it can often be difficult to know where to begin.
With so much to consider from colour to style and how you want it to fit, let us give you three great, timeless options that are perfect for any wedding day!
The Lounge Suit:
The classic lounge suit strikes a perfect balance between formal elegance and comfort. While traditional formalwear like tuxedos or morning suits can be quite structured and sometimes restrictive, a well-tailored lounge suit offers a more relaxed and comfortable fit without compromising on sophistication.
One of the key advantages of a lounge suit is its versatility. Whether you’re planning a formal ceremony or a more casual affair, a lounge suit can seamlessly transition between different wedding settings. It’s equally suitable for a city wedding, a beach ceremony, or a rustic countryside celebration.
Lounge suits have a modern and timeless appeal that transcends fashion trends. Opting for a classic, well-fitted suit ensures that your wedding photos remain stylish and relevant for years to come. This makes a lounge suit a wise choice for couples who want a look that stands the test of time.
A well-chosen lounge suit is an investment that extends beyond the wedding day. The versatility of a lounge suit means you can continue to wear it on various occasions after the wedding, ensuring that you get more mileage out of your attire compared to highly formal options that might be rarely worn.
The Dinner Suit:
Stylish & Sophisticated…
Wearing a dinner suit, also known as a tuxedo, or black tie, for your wedding can be a stylish and sophisticated choice that adds an element of formal glamour to the celebration
A dinner suit is the epitome of formal elegance. The sleek lines, satin lapels, and colour create a refined and sophisticated look, making it a perfect choice for couples seeking a high level of formality for their wedding
A dinner suit is a complete ensemble that includes not only the jacket and trousers but also a dress shirt, bow tie or necktie, cummerbund or waistcoat, and often accessories like cufflinks and studs. This ensures a cohesive and well-coordinated look for the groom.
Black mohair is the go to cloth when it comes to dinner jackets, but a deep midnight blue offers a compelling alternative and a contemporary feel to black tie dressing. The midnight blue produces less of a sheen than black when under artificial light, so is said to look “blacker than black”.
For a winter alternative, velvet works great in an array of colours from shades of blues, to greens and burgundy. And for a more vibrant summer look, off white and cream jackets work fantastically against a contrasting black bow-tie and trouser.
The Morning Suit:
Timeless & Traditional…
Getting married in a morning suit is a timeless and traditional choice that exudes elegance and sophistication.
A morning suit typically includes not only the tailcoat but also striped trousers, a waistcoat, and a cravat or tie. This complete ensemble ensures a well-coordinated and polished appearance, leaving no detail overlooked. The full outfit can include classic accessories such as a top hat, pocket watch, and gloves. These accessories add a touch of vintage charm and complete the formal look, making the groom stand out as a central figure in the celebration.
The tailcoat, typically worn in charcoal gray or black, gives the groom a distinguished and polished look, setting a formal tone for the occasion. The formal nature of the groom’s attire pairs well with the elegance of a traditional wedding dress, creating a harmonious and coordinated look for the couple.
Some couples appreciate the symbolic significance of the morning suit, associating it with formality, respect, and the solemnity of the wedding ceremony. Wearing such attire can add a sense of gravity to the occasion, emphasising the importance of the commitment being made.
