How to choose the groom suit
How to dress for a wedding, if in many cases dress and groom’s suit requires some coordination with the bride’s dress and wedding style? Let’s figure out what to wear to the wedding the groom and how to look at 100%.
If you run forward a bit, then after the wedding, sorting wedding photos, more than half of them you will be with the bride in all possible angles and staged scenes. Obviously, in these photos, you must not give in to the chic bridesmaid dress. But how to do it, if variations of wedding suits for the groom are as varied as the kinds of wedding ceremonies? Let’s look at the basic principles that can guide every.
You have to look as best as you can
Until the end of the day you have to look as good as in the beginning. Your wedding is a special moment, and you have to look the part. Your groom’s suit should be a classic example of the style that you chose. Those who wear a tuxedo should be an example of “Black Tie” dress code; those who wear a suit for a wedding, has to pick up the remaining items of clothing carefully, and also carefully choose a boutonniere.
We emphasize the classic style, not because you want to dress like your grandfather (which actually may be a good idea), we just don’t want for your wedding photos there was a certain timestamp. Remember the photos of their parents and/or friends that have fashion and hairstyles of the 80’s and voluminous Curling 90? Fashionable appearance is just a temporary stage that will pass sooner or later. Instead, prefer suits and silhouettes that are timeless.
Classic groom suit two parts: modern elegance
The usual attire of the two objects is often the simplest and most striking option for men. More refined versions, such as tuxedos and frock coats are more expensive in Russia and CIS countries, although, perhaps, that man and his guests already have formal clothes. Also, such clothing involves the rules with which many are not familiar.
If you want people at the wedding look stylish, but they are limited to a modest budget and you don’t want to be insensitive, it should stick to single breasted men’s suits. In addition, you don’t need to buy a new suit for a wedding, if you already have a simple, plain suit in a dark grey or dark blue color. These dark formal colors are entirely suitable for a wedding and many people will be very happy to wear a suit that is already in the wardrobe and is in excellent condition. By the way, the wedding suit of the groom can be rented. Thus You will save some money.
Worn with a white or other light shirt and a simple tie, a suit of plain dark colors gives a person a restrained elegance that harmonizes well with most Bridal styles and corresponds the importance of this event. Besides, if you want a new suit, it is always a worthwhile buy. New suit if it is a quality purchase, and remains useful after the wedding as a piece of clothing, suitable for business meetings or other semi-formal events. I recommend reading our article on how to buy your first classic men’s suit.
Plain classic groom suit two piece
Best wedding suits for groom — it suits the dark grey or deep dark blue color, although lighter grey khaki and blue suits also can come in the summer months and at exotic locations.
Avoid bright colored suits, as it is a novelty item and too gaudy for a wedding, unless you are getting married in Las Vegas.
In Russia, in recent years, gaining momentum color themed wedding. I realize that most of the grooms reading this article, are under some control by their brides, but still, if you can, try to resist this.
It’s okay for prom, but not for adults who want to publicly exchange promises and rings. You should not try to pick up the tie, boutonniere, and pocket square for a certain color theme, and match them to complement you and the bride.
Avoid harsh elements that distract the eye and may interfere with the wedding style.
Formal patterns, such as stripes or cage have a business Association, and is not suitable for festive events. Stick to plain or poluotvorenog the color of the suit for the most elegant appearance.
Black and white groom’s suit
Black suits are sometimes seen as a looser version of a tuxedo as a wedding garment. This is somewhat inaccurate understanding. Black, this highly formal color, but because of its associations with tuxedos and evening wear, may not be entirely suitable for the wedding ceremony.
Wearing black color in the room can cause the effect of washing out some of the external features and create a striking contrast that prevails in the pictures.
The color of the clothes of the groom should match the bride, so avoid white suit. White is the traditional color of the bride, as too much white can wash away the contrast pair, and drained of color. If your bride wears a traditional white gown, we highly recommend you colour the groom’s attire.
If you are determined not only on black-and-white suit, we suggest to consider dark grey or dark blue options. These colors are easier to match, they are much more practical for further carry and are classics for many decades.
The style and cut of the wedding suits bridegroom
Wedding suit should not just be single breasted, jacket with two button — though it may be. Single-breasted jackets with simple, restrained and dignified.
If you feel you need a bit more refinement on the day of the wedding, double-breasted suit adds weight and formality to the clothing, but this is highly formal attire will also require the presence of a tie and formal shirt. Open the collar of the shirt will not fit double breasted suit. This suit is also less comfortable to wear, especially if you need to sit for a long time.
But not less formal and more versatile option is the ensemble of three-piece suit; adds formality and elegance to the basic men’s suit, matching it with a vest.
Adding a vest to the suit may play the same role as the double-breasted suit, but a jacket can always be removed, and return to normal single-breasted suit has two parts. Wedding photographers love to do a relaxed photo with the groom in the vest and pants, with a jacket slung over the shoulder, so get ready to take off and put on clothes, if you choose a suit with a vest.
Dress shirt for wedding
Look at their best – this is the goal of the great day of the wedding, but it is all in the details. Pure white dress shirt — this handsome and formal choice for a wedding. Good patterns for the groomsmen and guests, but you need very formal classic white shirt, which should be good for you to sit. See how to sit a shirt.
Light shades of blue, grayish-white, and cream colors are also acceptable, if not conflict with the bride’s dress. Remember that your shirt collar will be visible on all your photos, so make sure it matches.
If you decided to skip the tie and wear it (see below), make sure you wear a shirt with a collar, the edges of which properly lie. The average distance between the edges of the gate is the right choice, and also make sure that they are not wrapped.
Don’t underestimate the importance of underwear t-shirts on the wedding day. You will sweat, and it’s better to have a layer of additional protection.
How to choose a tie for a wedding
The choice of necktie is important because it is in close proximity to your face. As the collar of the shirt, color and pattern of your tie will have an important share of attention on the photos and videos of the day. Wedding is not the time for a fashionable or bright tie — choose instead a discreet pattern and color.
Look for a tie with a single strong base color in blue, green, gold or brown with a modest pattern. In it you will look elegant and not tacky. Avoid red neckties as they are more suitable for business meetings.

Shoes for wedding groom suit

In any case, make sure that your shoes a good Shine, and they must match the belt (close, not necessarily exactly match).
Groomsmen, suits, and their compliance
In the West, the groom, the witnesses and his friends often dress in the same costumes that look pretty funny. On the other hand, the photographs do not always understand at a glance where the groom and his friends. Actually, we advise you to stay away from this Western phenomenon and instead to encourage everyone to dress the same, better make sure that costumes friends complement each other.
A wedding party with men in suits of a similar color, but different style, will look more profitable than in a perfectly coordinated outfits, because it will look more natural and not far-fetched.
Official version: the wedding in the style of “Black Tie”
Wedding in the style of “Black Tie” or “Black tie” is very popular in the West, but are sometimes found in our latitudes.
We should note that the formal “Black Tie” is evening apparel, and this style should not be worn until 5pm.
Now, if you and your fiancé aimed for a wedding in the style of “Black Tie”, and you need to dress accordingly. Although, to wear “Black Tie” is often more costly than a suit, but it’s actually easier to wear as the rules governing this style, very clear and dry is to wear a classic tuxedo, then follow the same rules as all the Bohemian society.
If you follow the dress code “Black Tie”, then we recommend purchasing his own tuxedo; rental tuxedos are usually made of synthetic materials, will be all evening to sweat and to endure the inconvenience. This is certainly not what you want at your wedding.
Remember that most people are not in the presence of the ensemble “Black Tie” — they will need at least a few months to rent or buy a tuxedo.
Finally, be careful with new-fangled bright colored tuxedos or imitation of the style “Black Tie”; the Only impression it will leave on the day of your wedding is that you have absolutely no sense of style.
The aristocratic option: morning suit
Couples who prefer a daytime or evening ceremony, who want a more formal wedding, can choose the style of morning costume.
Morning suits consist of single-breasted suit and vest (usually in contrasting colors), high turn-down collar with a matching tie, and striped trousers or restrained.
The style is designed to emphasize the formality of upper class and aristocratic events though it was originally considered in the West for everyday wear in the same conditions. Currently, it is very formal and very rare style sometimes found in the UK and in Russia. Morning suit, that’s very obliging outfit. It requires articles of clothing that very few people, and even many tailors will take the trouble to properly collect all the necessary items.
Being bright is undoubtedly one of the most difficult to implement of the options among traditional wedding attires.
Remember your bride
A bride’s outfit will outshine the groom’s attire, from the point of view of wealth and extravagance. This is natural and expected. Your outfit should complement rather than compete with the bride’s attire. If you have not already done so, do not be afraid to cooperate in selecting outfits with your future wife.
Look at the different options, calculate your budget check with the interested parties and make a decision months before the appointed date.
Wedding is an endless parade of details and nuances; try to simplify the choice of wedding suit. Honestly, the way you dress for your wedding should be easy. If You will feel uncomfortable and insecure in a wedding dress, it can hardly be called that day “the happiest day in your life”.
