The Ultimate Wedding Suit and Attire for Men

The Ultimate Wedding Suit and Attire for Men

Wedding is one of the most important life events for a man. Such a grand celebration obviously calls for special attire. That said, since most men are not accustomed to dressing up for such a formal event, finding the perfect attire can seem like a tall order.

Of course, regular daily outfits will not cut it for a wedding! Whether you’re the groom or just part of the wedding party, you will need a good, well-tailored suit.

We understand that finding the right wedding attire for men can be difficult. Fortunately, you’ve come to the perfect place! Here’s a complete guide for wedding suits and attire. This guide is best used for the happy groom, though those attending the wedding can also benefit greatly from this guide!

What Should Men Wear to a Wedding

Let’s start by answering the basic question, what should men wear to a wedding?

Generally, suits and tuxedos are the best options for a wedding. A well-tailored wedding suit will make a man appear put-together, elegant, and dashing, the perfect choice for celebrating a once-in-a-lifetime event like a wedding.

Of course, that part was easy to understand. However, it gets slightly more complicated once you get into all the details. For example:

  • What color should you wear?
  • What kind of fabrics should you choose?
  • How do you meet the dress code?
  • How should the suit fit?
  • How can you accessorize and flaunt your personal style?
  • And many more

Confused yet? Don’t be! Studio Suits will help you figure out all the details in this guide.

Before you decide on your outfit for a wedding reception, you’re going to need some more details about the event:

  • What is your role? Are you the groom, a groomsman, the father of the happy couple, or simply invited to attend the grand celebration?
  • What is the dress code? Check the invitation or the wedding planning board, if you’re the groom! See what the dress code is and choose your attire accordingly. However, not all weddings state a dress code, so reach out and ask for more clarity.
  • When is the wedding? Will it be held in Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall?
  • What time is the celebration held? Will the ceremony be held in the morning, afternoon, or evening? What about the reception?
  • What is the venue? Is this wedding held in the church, a grand ballroom, or a sunny beach?   
  • All these details will help you choose the perfect wedding suit, so you will not look out of place on the happiest day of your life.

Wedding Suit: Groom Vs. Groomsmen Vs. Father vs. Guest

The biggest differentiator for wedding suit styles is your role at the wedding. Are you the groom, a groomsman, the father of the couple, or a regular guest?

Naturally, the groom should be wearing the best and most extravagant wedding suit as it’s his happy day. The groom usually wears wedding suits made of better and more luxurious materials. More attention is given to the craftsmanship and details of his wedding suit as well, starting from the suit’s construction to its accessories.

In black-tie weddings, this will not be very obvious since every man will dress similarly. But even then the groom will likely have a subtle detail that makes his attire appear more special. This detail can be anything from custom-made cufflinks to a beautiful corsage.

If you’re the groom, don’t forget to run your suit opinions through your partner. Keep their attire in consideration as well. If their attire appears lavish and extravagant, you shouldn’t be lax with your suit options. Similarly, if they’re keeping it simple, then you can take it easy as well. The key is to match and complement the aesthetics of your partner’s entire look.

Moving on, if you’re a groomsman, you’ll likely be asked to wear something similar to the groom albeit slightly simpler. Groomsman suits should complement the groom’s wedding suit without taking the spotlight.

As a groomsman, you can wear a different color that still matches the wedding’s color palette. You can also wear fewer accessories and opt for those that are more simple in style.

If you’re the best man, your suit will likely match the other groomsmen’s. But do remember that this is a position of honor. So, you should look smart and sharp. Try to accessorize to appear more put-together, but do not steal the spotlight!

If you’re one of the fathers, then you have more options than the groomsmen. You can just choose to wear one of your best suits, if you have some already, or get something special for the occasion.

Of course, don’t forget to check the wedding color and theme with the happy couple. Make sure your suit matches the wedding’s aesthetics.

Lastly, as a guest, you have more freedom to choose your attire. As long as your clothing suits the wedding dress code, you should be fine. Just make sure to balance looking smart without upstaging the newlyweds!

Understanding Wedding Dress Codes for Men

Weddings have always been an elegant affair. But have you ever wondered what wedding dress codes mean? For example, what’s the difference between a black tie and a formal wedding? What is a white-tie wedding? And how should you dress for a casual wedding?

Oftentimes, it’s not just the guests who are confused about all the different rules of dress codes. Even the groom may scratch his head in confusion when the bride announces they’ll be having a cocktail wedding party.

So, if you found yourself in a similar situation, StudioSuits will help you demystify different wedding dress codes and how they affect your wedding attire.

White-Tie Wedding

Although less popular than black tie, white tie attire is actually the most formal dress code. Often referred to as full dress, a white tie dress code calls for a black jacket or coat with tails and matching pants for men.

The rules for white-tie attire are generally quite stiff, both for men and women. Men are required to wear a pure white shirt, waistcoat, and bowtie along with black patent shoes. The suit jacket’s tail must also extend to the knee.

White-tie weddings are very rare unless you’re part of a royal family. So, don’t fret too much; you’re very unlikely to encounter such an event.

Black-Tie Wedding

Black-tie weddings are declining in popularity, but they are still quite common these days. Black-tie attire is very common at large wedding ceremonies held at traditional venues and grand ballrooms.

For men, black-tie attire couldn’t get any simpler. Whether you’re the groom or a guest, you only get to wear a black tuxedo suit with a crisp white dress shirt and black patent shoes.

The rules of traditional black-tie weddings are very restrictive. There’s not much room to showcase your personal style. Thus, it can be a bit difficult for the groom to stand out against all the other men attending the wedding.

Thankfully, modern black-tie weddings are more lenient when it comes to personal style. Grooms are allowed to wear regular wedding suits instead of a tux if they wish. Plus, a groom gets more freedom to add personal touches to their ensemble. For example, by adding custom cufflinks, wearing midnight blue instead of black, or wearing a colored bowtie.

Formal Wedding

Despite its name, formal attire is not the most formal dress code out there; that title goes to white-tie attire. The formal dress code is just a step below black tie. So, in general, formal weddings are not as stiff as black-tie weddings but you should still pay great attention to your wedding outfit.

For a formal wedding, tuxedos are still a fantastic choice, though you have more color options than just the traditional black and midnight blue. Feel free to experiment with a bordeaux or burgundy tuxedo for a classy yet daring appearance.

Of course, your options are not limited to tuxedos. Grooms are free to wear regular wedding suits if they wish to. The fabric, texture, and color options are less limited as well. However, it’s still advised to stick to darker and richer shades, such as navy, charcoal, and emerald green.

Formal weddings are generally held indoors or in a traditional venue as well. They generally happen in late afternoons or evenings, so dress accordingly.

Cocktail or Semi-Formal Wedding

Cocktail dress code is usually associated with late afternoon or early evening receptions, destination weddings, and more modern venues. Most modern weddings fall in this dress code category.

When talking about cocktail and semi-formal dress codes, think sleek, chic, and glamorous. Though this dress code is way more relaxed than the previous three, it’s still a fancy event.

Cocktail attire can be tricky to navigate as it falls somewhere between semi-formal and fully formal. Your safest bet is to wear a suit, the color and material doesn’t matter, though it’s advised to wear solid colors or understated patterns only.

As a groom, you get even more personalization options here. Feel free to experiment with different colors, ranging from royal blue to terracotta. Patterns like plaid, pinstripe, or windowpane are also acceptable as long as they’re not too loud or garish.

Casual Wedding

Think casual weddings are easier to navigate? Think again! Since casual wedding attire for men is a more broad and loose term, it becomes more confusing as well! It can be easy to overdress and under dress when you attend a casual wedding.

Thankfully, as a groom, you’ll be expected to set the mood for every other man in the room anyway. So, use this to your advantage!

Most grooms err of the side of formality and choose to dress slightly more formally with a wedding suit. However, if you want to loosen up a little, feel free to wear separate suit jacket and trousers. Casually styled wedding suits with fun colors and patterns are also welcome!

Wedding Suit Fabric Options

From wool to linen, there are plenty of fabric options men can choose to create their perfect wedding attire. Of course, different fabric will suit different venues and themes. Since weddings are not strictly black-tie or formal events these days, men get to explore a variety of other men’s suiting fabrics.

For example, a winter wedding calls for a thicker and warmer suit, while a tropical beach wedding calls for a light and airy suit.

In this section, we’ll take a look at three best suiting fabrics available, tweed, wool, and linen.

Tweed Suit

Chic and sophisticated, nothing quite beats the timeless elegance of a tweed wedding suit. Originating in Scotland and Ireland as practical peasant wear, though tweed has humble roots, this fabric is now associated with prestige and luxury.

Tweed formalwear is well-loved all around the globe. And thanks to its versatility and elegance, it has become one of the top choices from grooms around the world.

A tweed wedding suit will transform any groom into a charming and dapper prince.

Not only is it gorgeous, but tweed suits are also highly durable and water-resistant. For this reason, they make great mementos. This way, you can have a special keepsake of your wedding day.

There’s a misconception about tweed suits and when to wear them. Some people believe tweed suits to be thick and thus, only reserved for Fall and Winter weddings. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth!

As a natural fabric, tweed has fantastic thermo regulating abilities. It can keep you cool in hot weather as much as it can keep you warm. So, tweed suits can actually be a great choice for weddings all year round.

If you wish to wear a tweed wedding suit in the warmer seasons, here are some things you should know:

  • Pick suit made of thinner tweed. This will prevent you from feeling hot and sweaty.
  • Try lighter colors. Tweed suit with lighter or pastel colors are ideal for weddings in the Spring and Summer.
  • Pair it with a cool and breezy dress shirt. Wear a cool and sweat-wicking dress shirt, this will ensure you stay cool throughout the ceremony and reception.

On the other hand, here are some pointers for picking a tweed suit for Fall and Winter weddings:

  • Pick suit made of thicker tweed. This will prevent you from feeling cold and drafty.
  • Try darker and richer colors. Brown is a classic tweed suit color and it will look fantastic for Fall weddings. Don’t dismiss other rich colors either, emerald, navy, and burgundy will look stunning for Winter weddings.
  • Layer up. If you know the venue will be particularly cold, try layering up. For example, with a classic shirt, vest, and suit combination.

Wool Suit

Looking for something classic and versatile? You can never go wrong with the elegant wool suit. Wool is highly favored as a suiting fabric due to its subtly elegant appearance and durability.

Moreover, wool suits are also very warm and cozy to wear. This is because natural wool has fantastic insulation properties. Wool is a traditional material for colder weather, making it the perfect suiting fabric for Fall and Winter weddings.

That said, the right type of wool can be worn for Spring and Summer weddings as well. If you’re looking into wool suits but have a Spring or Summer wedding, opt for lightweight wool fabrics with looser weaves.

Premium, high-end wool typically weighs less than low-end wool. So, consider spending the extra money as an investment to look extra dapper on your wedding day. It’s a great investment that ensures you stay comfortable and become more confident on the happiest day of your life.

Furthermore, wool wedding suits also feel soft and gentle on the skin. This is ideal for grooms with sensitive skin and allergies. The softness of a woolen wedding suit will also be your savior against the itchiness of bug bites at an outdoor wedding.

Lastly, there’s nothing more versatile than a wool suit. It’s a classy choice that can be dressed up or down easily to fit a variety of events. So, if you’re looking for a wedding suit that you can re-wear for other occasions, wool suits are your best bet. 

You truly can't go wrong with a wool suit! It’s definitely one you'll wear over and over again!

Linen Suit

Most traditional men’s jacket materials are generally quite thick and warm. This can be extremely restrictive and annoying if you have a Summer wedding. That’s why you should look into StudioSuits’ linen wedding suits!

The perfect combination of style and comfort, linen wedding suits will help you look your best even during the hottest days. Not only do they add a touch of sophistication to your appearance, but they are also versatile, lightweight, and highly breathable.

Linen is a natural fabric made from flax fibers. Historically, this material has been favored by aristocrats and royalties hailing from areas with hotter climates. Thanks to their breathability and absorbency, linen wedding suits are the ideal choice for Summer and outdoor weddings.

Furthermore, linen has inherent insect-repelling properties. Yes, this includes moths and those pesky mosquitoes. Your linen suit will be your new best friend for outdoor receptions and ceremonies.

With a linen wedding suit, you can look sharp and sophisticated all day long without worrying about excessive sweating and feeling stuffy!

Style Options to Consider

Moving on, let’s consider all the style options you have. There are many different types of suits to choose from, such as tuxedos, single-breasted styles, double-breasted style, and many more style elements!

And you need to decide which one will suit you best!

Confused yet? Don’t be! Just like before, we’ll lay out all the essential information you need to know before you decide on what kind of wedding suit you want to wear.

Suit Vs. Tuxedo

Let’s begin by discussing the age-old question, “what is the difference between suits and tuxedos?”

At first glance, regular wedding suits and tuxedos may look similar. Both tuxedo and suit are commonly made from the same materials, such as tweed, wool, and linen. The biggest difference between the two lies in the use of satin fabric in certain areas of the jacket.

Satin details are used on a tuxedo jacket’s lapels, buttons, and pockets. Whereas regular wedding suits typically use the same fabric throughout. , the material will be the same throughout the entire jacket.

It should also be noted that the satin mentioned earlier is black in color. This little detail is what gives the tuxedo its regal and sophisticated appearance. Regardless of whether your tuxedo is black, navy, or burgundy, the detailing will likely be done using black satin, but at StudioSuits, we offer an exclusive range of satin colors for tuxedos, so you can choose the perfect hue to match your personal style and occasion.

So, which one should you choose for your wedding attire? A regular suit or a tuxedo?

This largely depends on your wedding’s dress code. A black-tie wedding calls for a tuxedo, while regular suits will look better at formal and semi-formal weddings.

Another thing you should consider is the cost-to-wear aspect. Most men are unlikely to wear a tuxedo more than once or twice in their entire lives. Unless you’re attending a gala dinner, a charity ball, or a night at the opera, your wedding tuxedo will likely remain as a keepsake in your wardrobe. On the other hand, regular suits are much more versatile. Many occasions call for a suit, so you’ll likely be able to re-wear and repurpose your wedding suit later on.

So, take a look at your wedding plans, budget, and plans for the future. These things will help you decide whether you should wear a suit or a tux to your wedding.

Single-Breasted Vs. Double-Breasted

Another style option you should consider is the style of the suit jacket, is it single-breasted or double-breasted?

Single-breasted suit jackets are more common. They’re the regular suits you usually see with a row of two or three buttons down the middle.

Meanwhile, a double-breasted jacket features two parallel columns of buttons and an overlapping front. This style of suit jacket is regarded as more traditional and dramatic compared to the more common single-breasted suit jackets.

So, which one should you choose?

First, it’s good to know that not every man can pull off the double-breasted look . Due to its overlapping front, a double-breasted suit jacket is bulkier than regular suit jackets. As a result, this jacket gives the wearer a slight widening effect.

When worn by the right man, this widening effect can be used to his advantage. It can accentuate his form and flatter the contour of his muscles. However, if you’re too lanky or on the chubbier side, a double-breasted suit jacket can make you appear awkward.

On the other hand, single-breasted suit jackets are generally more versatile. They fit a wide range of body shapes and forms, making them the safer choice for most men.

Wedding Suit Colors

Next up, you should also consider the color of your wedding suit. While black is certainly the most popular and safest choice out there, more and more grooms are starting to pick other suit colors as well.

When choosing the color of your wedding attire, be sure to keep these things in mind:

  • The wedding theme and dress code
  • The wedding venue
  • The wedding color palette
  • The season
  • The formality of the wedding

To give you a better idea on different color options, here’s the explanation behind some of the most popular wedding suit color choices.

Black Wedding Suit

Let’s start off with the classic color option, black. Black wedding suits are the traditional option for grooms. It’s the most popular option and also one regarded as the most formal.

This color is mostly preferred due to its understated elegance and sophistication. It’s also a timeless choice that will look amazing regardless of venue, season, or wedding theme..

Furthermore, the classic black wedding suit creates a beautiful contrast with the traditional white wedding dress. The black and white combination makes a gorgeous picture that no other color combination can beat!

Blue Wedding Suit

If you want to stand out in a colorful wedding party, go with a blue wedding suit. While black suits are seen as the traditional option for black-tie weddings, a blue wedding suit is perfect for formal and semi-formal weddings.

There are many different blue shades you can choose for your wedding suit. Though similar, each shade will evoke a different feel and match different aesthetics. Here’s a quick guide to help you make your choice:

  • Navy wedding suits are timeless and regal. It’s the perfect option for grooms who wish to look sophisticated without wearing the traditional black. Navy wedding suits will look exceptional for late Summer and Fall weddings.
  • Robin blue wedding suits are gentle and romantic. The light hue of the suit will look fresh and sweet for Spring and garden weddings.
  • Royal blue wedding suits are bold and daring. Perfect for grooms who want to make a statement, royal blue suits will only add to your charm. Royal blue is a very versatile color, it’s ideal for both beach and Winter weddings.
  • Pastel blue wedding suits convey joy and hope for new beginnings. Mostly reserved for morning ceremonies, this soft and light hue is sure to turn heads.

Grey Wedding Suit

Grey is another wonderful option for wedding suits. Traditionally, grey and blue are considered the most acceptable suit color aside from formal black. Grey is a neutral color that will complement every man.

Even today, grey wedding suits remain a steadfast choice for grooms who wish to appear refined and elegant without looking too stiff. Modern and fresh, grey suits are always in vogue! It’s truly the perfect color option for grooms who want to make a statement.

Just like before, there are plenty of grey shades to pick for your wedding attire. Let this quick guide help you pick the perfect grey shade for your wedding:

  • Charcoal grey wedding suits are sophisticated and distinguished. It’s the closest shade to black and thus, the closest in terms of formality. Not too dark, but not too light, the charcoal wedding suit is the perfect choice for formal and semi-formal weddings.
  • Iron grey wedding suits are versatile and chic. Equal parts formal and casual, the medium grey shade works perfectly for both daytime and evening weddings.
  • Pale grey wedding suits convey romance and serenity. A pale grey wedding suit looks especially good worn during the Spring and Summer months. It will complement a muted or pastel color palette.
  • Cement grey wedding suits are light, airy, and fresh. This neutral grey wedding suit will look amazing with any color palette. Pair with pastel accents for a Spring outdoors wedding or add jewel-toned accents for a regal Winter wedding.

Patterned Wedding Suit

Patterned suits are generally considered to be less formal compared to plain ones. However, this doesn’t mean that a groom should stay away from patterned wedding suits. In fact, a patterned wedding suit can help you stand out above your wedding party.

Besides, it’s your big day, so you should be free to wear a suit that compliments your personal style and boosts your confidence!

For example, plaid and checkered wedding suits can be a stylish choice, especially for Summer and outdoor weddings. If you’re looking for something more subtle, thin pinstriped suits can also look fantastic for weddings.

Other Color Variations

Of course, there are tons of other color variations you can choose for your wedding attire. As a general rule of thumb, darker and deeper colors are regarded as more formal compared to lighter colors.

Additionally, lighter colors are more suitable for weddings held in Spring and Summer as they’re ideal for the bright scenery. They’re also better for ceremonies and receptions held in the daytime. In contrast, darker colors will stand out during Fall and Winter weddings, especially those held after the sun sets.

For example, a pastel pink or a robin blue suit will look amazing for a cheerful wedding in a May afternoon. While an emerald or burgundy suit will suit an October wedding better.

If you’re a man who’s not afraid to experiment, feel free to experiment with your wedding suit colors. Of course, always keep your wedding theme and color palette in check so your suit’s color does not clash with the venue theme and aesthetics. And don’t forget to run your options through your partner so they know what to expect!

Choosing Wedding Suit by Season

While most classic fits, colors, and patterns look amazing all-year round, there are certain combinations that are better suited for specific seasons. Understanding the setting and climate properly can help you build and style an exceptional wedding attire everyone will remember for years to come.

And let’s admit it, there’s nothing more important than the seasonal fabric choices. After all, nobody wants to freze at their own December wedding because they chose a thin, linen suit!

Our guide to seasonal men’s wedding attire will be your foundation for knowing which fabrics, styles, and colors work best for each season.

Men's Suit and Attire for a Spring Wedding

Spring is that in-between time when the weather is not too cold yet not too warm yet. The weather in Spring can be quite fickle as well. So, if you’re having an outdoor wedding, it’s advised to pick a layered wedding outfit, such as a classic three-layer suit. That way, you can adjust the layers accordingly later on.

Of course, to avoid feeling stuffy and sweating throughout the day, lighter fabrics are recommended for Spring weddings.

Light-weave cotton suits and lightweight linen suits are your best options for those cool yet gorgeous Spring days. Not only do they provide you with a luxurious appearance and great structure, but they can also help you remain cool and comfortable throughout the day.

As for the colors, black is a classic option that will lend a timeless elegance. However, you can experiment with lighter colors to match the season. Consider light shades and pastel colors, such as:

  • Light grey
  • Lavender
  • Stone blue
  • Pastel pink
  • Pastel yellow
  • Robin’s egg blue
  • Mint green
  • Khaki
  • Cream
  • Light brown

Men's Suit and Attire for a Summer Wedding

Here comes the sun! Summertime is peak season to shed all the stiff layers and maximize breathability. The last thing you want is sweating excessively at your own wedding, not due to nerves but due to the stuffy suit you’re wearing.

Thanks to the gorgeous weather, Summer is also prime time for outdoor, tropical, destination, and beach weddings. So, it’s no wonder that Summer weddings tend to be much more effortless and relaxed.

When it comes to Summer weddings, you can never go wrong with a linen suit. It’s sophisticated yet breathable, cool, and airy, just perfect to beat the Summer heat. Aside from linen, cotton suits are also a great choice, especially if your wedding is more on the casual side.

Summer wedding attire’s colors should also be light and airy. Think bright, Mediterranean-inspired color palettes, such as:

  • Sky blue
  • Steel blue
  • Taupe
  • Khaki
  • Beige
  • Off-white
  • Light grey

If those colors are not to your liking, you can stick to the classic black or medium grey wedding suit. You can never go wrong with those!

Men's Suit and Attire for a Fall Wedding

When the weather starts to cool down as summer comes to an end, many people jump at the opportunity to bust all the layers. However, Fall weddings can be quite tricky. It can be freezing in the morning and evening but quite warm or ever hot during the day. So, pick you wedding attire carefully according to when the ceremony and reception are going to be held.

Thicker materials are recommended for Fall wedding suits, though there’s no need to go overboard on excessively heavy fabrics.

Tweed wedding suits are a classic for Fall. This natural fabric provides you with the right amount of texture, structure, and elegance in addition to keeping you warm and comfortable. Wool suits are also a good choice, but be sure to pick those with slightly looser weave.

Fall weddings are typically more formal than Spring and Summer weddings, so pick your outfit accordingly. Treat yourself to a little elegance and pick more luxurious suit styles or even a tuxedo.

For Fall weddings, it’s best to look into nature for your color inspiration. Step into the season with deeper and richer tones, such as:

  • Brown
  • Camel
  • Burnt orange
  • Terracotta
  • Emerald green
  • Burgundy
  • Navy blue
  • Deep purple

Men's Suit and Attire for a Winter Wedding

As the temperature drops, it’s time to fully embrace thick layers and heavyweight fabrics. If you’re having a Winter wedding, don’t be afraid to pick heavier fabrics with textured finishes.

Most winter weddings are formal or black tie, classic and layered suit styles are also highly recommended for this season. Tuxedos are also a great option for this season. If you feel that your suit isn’t warm enough, try accesorizing with a long coat. This will not only keep you warm, but also add an elegant flair to your outfit.

Heavy woolen and tweed suits are your best bet for Winter weddings. They are thick and sufficiently warm. Furthermore, they also lend an air of sophistication, making you appear more debonair without sacrificing comfort.

As for the colors, stick to cooler and deeper shades. Avoid warm tones at all cost since they look awkward and out of season. Black is one of the best options to choose for Winter weddings, but feel free to wear other rich tones, such as:

  • Cool grey
  • Deep grey
  • Midnight blue
  • Royal blue
  • Deep burgundy
  • Emeral green

Renting vs. Buying a Wedding Suit

Now that you understand all the style pointers you need for your wedding suit, you stumble upon yet another question.

Should you rent or buy your wedding suit?

Of course, the answer to this question largely depends on the needs and the budget of each groom. However, as a groom, you should understand that getting a made-to-measure suit means that you will have a wedding suit jacket and trousers that fit and complements your form.

Aside from looking extra dapper and elegant on your wedding day, buying a custom-made suit also ensures you get a special memento of your big day. After your wedding day, you can choose to keep your wedding suit as a keepsake to pass down in the family or even wear them separately to other formal events!

That said, let’s take a look at the pros and cons to help you decide whether you should rent or buy your wedding suit.

Is Renting Really Cheaper?

Let’s get one thing straight; weddings are very expensive! There are so many things to take into consideration and all the little details add up to the bill.

Buying a custom-made suit is another expense you need to consider when planning your big day. Made-to-measure suits are not exactly cheap; that’s why some men opt for rental wedding suits.

But are they truly the most economical choice?

At first glance, renting your wedding suit seems like the most budget-friendly option. But this may not be true in the long run.

If you want to keep the cost down, renting is not always the best option. If you’re going to attend other weddings and formal events, then buying a wedding suit that you can re-wear can actually be more cost-effective.

Furthermore, the rental price tag often doesn’t reflect what you actually pay. Many rental prices will charge extra to alter the size of the suit to fit you. So, unless you want to look awkward in an ill-fitting wedding suit, you’re going to have to shell out some extra bucks.

On the other hand, when you buy a made-to-measure suit, you can get the perfect wedding suit at no extra cost. This will not only be more cost-effective in the long run, but it will also help you map out your wedding budget during the planning stage.

Renting Limits Your Options

Every man wants to look stylish and immaculate on their wedding day. And of course, you’ll want to stand proudly next to your partner. So, you’ll need to coordinate your wedding suit with your partner’s attire and the wedding theme.

While suit rental stores have plenty of style and color options these days, there is nothing like buying a custom-tailored suit. Buying a made-to-measure suit gives you more freedom to personalize your wedding attire.

You can get something made of your preferred fabric, in a color you like, and in a style that enhances your silhouette. Rather than being limited to what the rental stores have, you can step out in style with a custom-tailored wedding suit made just for you!

Buying a custom suit allows you to look sharp and confident on the happiest day of your life.

The Perfect Fit Goes a Distance!

There’s a very thin line between looking sharp and awkward when it comes to a suit. While a well-tailored suit can make you appear sharp and dapper, an ill-fitting one can make you appear unseemly.

The perfect fit can make you look slimmer, more muscular, and manlier. It can also help boost your confidence, an important aspect to think about when you’re making lifelong vows with your beloved in front of so many people.

Rental suits are made to suit many different body shapes. With typical standard sizes, certain areas of the suit might not fit right on your body. You could be left with sleeves that are too long and trousers that are too tight around your waist.

Moreover, even after spending extra to get it altered, your tailoring and customization options will be limited. There are certain alteration aspects that rental shops refuse to make since they can affect the standard sizing.

It can be difficult to get a rental wedding suit that compliments your figure perfectly.

On the other hand, a wedding suit that’s professionally made to fit your body will naturally look way better. Not only that, but it will also save you from the hassle of visiting the tailor back and forth just to get a good fit.

Plus, you can re-wear the suit jacket and trousers later on, either as a set or separately. That way, you’re going to look sharp at every special event you attend for many years to come!

Does a Rented Wedding Suit Give the Same Value?

Lastly, let’s take a look at the value behind the wedding suit. Think about the wedding suit’s personal significance to you and the sentimental value attached to it.

Does a rental suit that’s been worn by other people have the same sentimental value? Is a rental suit “special” enough for such a grand celebration?

Wedding dresses are valued greatly in our society. Often seen as the most important attire a woman will wear in her life, a bride is encouraged to get a special dress that suits her style. And since it holds such a  high sentimental value, nothing short of perfection will do when it comes to wedding dresses.

So, why aren’t wedding suits viewed in that regard? Should you sacrifice all the value your wedding suit holds just to save some extra bucks?

Men owe it to themselves to have at least one good-fitting suit in their wardrobe. If you’re not a big fan of suits in your daily life, then consider getting one for your special day. It will not only make you stand out as you make your vows, but it will also be a sentimental keepsake that you’ll be able to wear many years down the line, should you decide to make the purchase.
