Taking Your Wedding Suit Beyond Your Vows
Having a bespoke suit is a big investment, so you want to be sure that after your wedding day it doesn’t hang in a closet. Here are some useful tips and tricks to making the most of your wedding suit, making sure it has longevity and see’s you beyond your vows.
With a bit of forward thinking and planning your suit can become a well-used wardrobe asset. The most important thing to consider is what you want to use the suit for after the wedding. Will it become a work suit? Do you just need a smart suit for those monthly work meetings? Do you do a lot of networking and want something that will make you stand out from the crowd? Does your office have a more relaxed atmosphere and want a suit that can be worn as separates? These are all important questions to get your head around.
The Everyday Suit
Once you have established want to want to use the suit for afterwards you can start thinking about fabric’s and colour. For a suit that will be worn as a work suit blues and greys are brilliant and they are versatile and look sharp as both a wedding suit and a work suit.
If you only wear a work suit of a handful of occasions then you can go for something with a bit of pattern to it, window pane checks, prince of wales checks, houndstooth and birds eye all work well.
The Crown Pleaser
If you are looking for something that is going to really make you stand out from a crowd we suggest going for a more unique colour like a really dark green. Alternatively if you want to play it slightly safer you can go for a contrasting waistcoat to really lift your suit and make it striking
If you have a more relaxed work space, and hardly ever wear a suit. Tweed is a great fabric as this can become separates after, and a nice jacket to wear for weekends to the local pub. We are not suggesting hunting, shooting, fishing tweed, but a beautifully refined tweed in either blues, browns, dark greens or greys. Tweed makes great smart casual jackets, perfect for a more laid back office environment.
It is a lot to take in on top of planing a wedding! But the more you think about what you are going to wear and how you want to wear it the more longevity you will have with your suit. Our designers and tailors are always on hand to guide and help you with any questions you may have.
