Basic rules for choosing the groom’s suit
One of the great sensations of the wedding is the wedding dress, but what about the groom’s suit? Well, they also care about looking elegant and handsome with the dress that fits their figure, the type of wedding and that makes them feel comfortable and attractive.
Since accessories give depth to the look, it is important that the suit is complemented with a tie that reflects the personality of the groom, a boutonniere that coordinates with the flowers in the bride’s bouquet, and impeccable shoes that lead him to the altar.
Although before all this you should take into account what factors should be taken into account when choosing a suit?
What should be the concept of the wedding?
Some clues that will help you about what kind of etiquette is most correct for your event, such as the place, time of the ceremony and reception; in turn, it is important that, before choosing the modern wedding dress and the groom’s suit, you also consider the style you want to reflect in the wedding.
Types of suits according to time and etiquette
As basic tips, we tell you what you need to know about the four main types of men’s suits; the tailcoat is a suit of rigorous etiquette and only suitable for evening weddings; the tuxedo is an option for formal etiquette, also for evening events.
The jacket and the tailor suit are versatile for both day and night, in indoor and outdoor weddings, although the former is a little more semi-formal than the latter.
Colors for wedding style
So, just as the flowers for the wedding are pointed out in one color or another according to the time of day, you should ask yourself if the wedding will be in the garden, on the beach, in the closed room, in the relaxed concept or in strict etiquette: Will the groom be all James Bond or will he look more casual? Will he be of a specific theme?
For more formal weddings, only black suits are allowed; for this reason, you will never see a tailcoat of another color. The tuxedo is almost always black too, although this rule can be broken if a more avant-garde look is allowed for the groom.
In these cases, a tuxedo jacket in pine-green or wine-colored velvet or with the lapels in another color can be perfectly accommodated with a black pant in a very chic garden wedding.
The jacket is also black or grey in its most classic version, but we see it in more and more shades of blue, either painting only the levite, the vest or the complete set; and the same goes for the tailor’s suits.
In any case, and with few exceptions, a dark colored suit will be more versatile, since it is the best for an evening wedding and equally valid for daytime weddings; on the other hand, lighter tones are not so appropriate for evening events.
By the way, if you are going to choose a dress code, it is important that you announce it to your loved ones on your elegant wedding invitations. You should also discuss this information with the staff of the wedding dress stores where the future husband will go to select the best option, and you should not forget that in order to choose the suit, it should also fit your body.
The weather on day B
The temperature is another factor that influences the purchase of the suit, a way to adapt the suit to the climate conditions where the wedding will be, is the choice of fabric, color and number of pieces of clothing.
Fabrics according to climate
the most common fabric is wool, although, this type of fabric provides a lot of heat and retains too much temperature; therefore, there are different densities of yarn among which you can choose depending on whether your wedding will be in Baja California or a garden in Yucatan in June.
If you’re worried about heat and high humidity, you can always choose linen and silk suits, although they crease easily, between thin fabrics that allow the fabric to breathe well.
Colors for heat
By label, white and pastel shades should only be worn in temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius; added to this, the warmth of the suit also serves the most practical purpose, as colours also help to cope with the heat.
While the lighter fibers make the solar radiation “bounce”, the dark fabrics absorb them; that’s why you don’t see many bride and groom getting married in strict black at the seashore; now imagine the result as many more pieces are added to your look.
