Gone are the days where the wedding is all about the Bride; the groom and his team of groomsmen hold more responsibility… and its important they don’t disappoint. Here’s our four-point guide to ensure your fiancée doesn’t leave you at the Altar:
POINT #1 – THE SCENE:
If a guest has to ask who the groom is, there’s a problem. As the groom, you NEED to take it up a notch. Take in to consideration the dress code you’ve put on the invitation and the scenery of the venue to avoid disappointment.
POINT #2 – THE SUIT:
This is possibly one of the most overlooked factors when shopping for a wedding suit. Whether it’s a shawl lapel/double breasted suit for your black tie themed wedding, or a simple two-button notch lapel suit for an outdoors and scenic venue; Its important you choose an outfit that’s appropriate and compliments the scene.
POINT #3 – THE COLOUR:
The colour of your suit ultimately depends on the scene of your wedding. It’s vital to complement the colours of the venue and your bride-to-be’s dress. Sticking to staple colours that are quite universal is key, and can make this process easier to go through.
POINT #4 – THE FIT:
Don’t look like you’re wearing a suit because you HAVE TO wear a suit, pay attention to the fit and get it customised to your needs. This ultimately means an extra cost in alterations, but also guarantee’s you won’t be ashamed of your wedding photos.
