There is a lot of focus on the wedding gown when it comes to wedding attire. In fact, most of the attention on a wedding day goes to the bride when it comes to fashion and beauty. However, the groom does need to pay special attention to his own wear on the most important day of his life. When it comes down to picking a suit for the groom for the wedding, there are many factors to consider.
How to choose groom’s wedding wear
Time of the event. If your wedding is taking place in the summer the groom certainly wants to avoid wearing a black suit made of wool or other heavy fabrics. The groom should choose a lighter colored suit in cotton, linen or seersucker. If your wedding is taking place in winter, the groom definitely wants to choose a dark wear made of wool fabric. A groom’s suit and blazer with nice trousers, or perhaps a cashmere v-neck sweater with a shirt and tie underneath, would all be nice choices. An evening wedding asks for a black wear, or a tuxedo, for the groom if the wedding is a formal affair.
Quality and fabric of groom’s wear. Look at the quality of materials a suit is made of. Wool is considered the great choice by many grooms. Polyester and microfibers are avoided by most of the grooms due to comfort factors. Linen is quick to wrinkle, but it is also priced competitively. When choosing the fabric of the groom’s wear, consider the weather. For example, if you are planning a summer wedding when the weather is hot, you need to choose a suit made of a light fabric for your groom.
Groom’s wear style. The groom should pay attention to the style of the his wear. The cut of the suit should fit very well. This is what the groom wants to look for when he is trying the suit on. All things can be altered in a suit, but the basic cut should fit well in order to have an ultimately comfortable experience in the suit.
Groom’s body shape. Short, slim grooms should wear two or three-buttoned suit jackets with a low button stance in their wedding day as they will elongate the body. These jackets should be teamed with tuxedo pants or pleated trousers to form an elegant wear for the groom in his wedding day. Short and broad grooms should don a single-breasted suit, one with a one or two-buttoned jacket that closes at the waistline is ideal. The suit should be worn by the groom with a vest rather than a cummerbund though, as the vest will hide a thick waist whereas a cummerbund will draw attention to it. Tall and muscular grooms should wear clean lines without any frills and avoid double-breasted jackets and pleated shirts as they will add bulk. Either of these body shape wear will ensure an elegant look for the groom in his wedding day.
Style of the event. The style of the wedding establishes the style of the groom’s wear. Casual ceremonies, such as a beach weddings call for a lightweight suit in a light-colored shade for the groom. For very formal wedding, the groom could choose a white tie ensemble and a black tailcoat over a white waistcoat or vest.
Groom’s wear color. As most of the weddings have a color pallet it would be a nice touch for the groom to match his wear with those colors. The groom should choose a color that suits him, and discuss his choice with his bride, to make sure the suit matches the color of her wedding gown. He doesn’t have to go black or gray. The groom should choose a different color for his wedding wear, or a colored shirt to break the color monotony.
Groom’s wear comfort. The groom doesn’t have to feel uncomfortable in his suit on his wedding day. And he doesn’t want to look like a knob in his suit. So make sure the groom tries his suit on and move around a bit. Don’t forget that the groom will also dance with your friends. Make sure the groom gives some space to his legs to move, so he will feel comfortable in his wedding suit.
