While a great wedding suit can be a perfect choice of ensemble for a guest, it can also be a fantastic choice for the bride who doesn’t fancy a big dress but still want to look formal and put together on her special day. Here’s some tips to find the perfect wedding suit.
Firstly, just because you’re not having a fancy dress made, it doesn’t mean you get the excuse to linger and loiter. Start looking early enough that you can peruse a range of styles and shops, and find the perfect outfit to make your wedding day one to remember. Bear in mind that any suit, no matter how perfect, will need a little tailoring to make it exquisite, and factor in that time.
On that note, your wedding suit needs to fit properly. Don’t rely on the tailor to do all the hard work, either. Make sure that you get the best possible fit in the suit even before you start tailoring it. The tailor will then be able to tweak it to perfection. Getting your suit out the way quickly will also leave you stress free.
How to look your best
Remember that accessories should match the wedding colours, for best visual effect. Of course, the theme of the day is the traditional white, but don’t be afraid to tinker with that a bit- there’s lovely oysters, creams and blushes you can explore if you want to keep it fairly traditional, or go bold and chose a new colour. But if you’re sticking with the pale theme, then introduce the wedding colours with the accessories- from shoes to jewellery and beyond. Don’t be afraid to consider a pattern for your suit- no one said it had to be a flat colour, and patterns are in even in the formal business suit at the moment, let alone for an occasion like this. A subtle pattern can flatter and add personality.
Carry your purchase forward
There’s nothing more useless then a wedding dress after the wedding. And you can opt for the same for your suit, too, if you want. There’s a lot to be said for keeping it in sacred storage to be reminisced over if that suits you. However, don’t be afraid to opt for a suit that will have practical applications, too, especially if the budget is tight. There’s nothing wrong with making the suit for the big day one that will carry forward- perhaps with a few changes- into your daily life after the big day. Must grooms will do it, so you can too!
Fit is everything
We mentioned tailoring above, but it can’t be said enough. Make sure the suit fits and flatters. Few people are totally happy with their bodies, and it can be tempting to try and hide something, or choose a size smaller then you actually fit well just for the sake of the label- but it’s an idea that will shoot you in the foot. The best way to make your body look great is to clothe it well in clothes that fit. There’s nothing to be said for a poor fit.
