Wedding suits are just as important as bridal wear and bridesmaids dresses. Choosing a suit for the groom, the best man, the ushers and any page boys can sometimes end up being a bit of an afterthought. Our advice is to start thinking about your wedding suits when you have chosen your wedding venue.

If you plan to purchase your wedding suit, you'll need to be much more organised than if you are hiring, so it is worth thinking about your ideal style in advance even if there isn't any rush to get your suits yet. Our blogs about wedding suits and menswear may be a helpful starting point for inspiration.

The choice of wedding suits available is huge, from Highland dress to a casual lounge suit, with morning coats remaining the most popular for traditional weddings. Hiring a suit is quick and easy, and while most good menswear hire shops will insist that they measure you themselves for the best fit, some will allow your best man and ushers to order online if they live a distance from the shop you choose, and will give you guidance on getting the right measurements.

Don't forget the other essentials, which may need to coordinate with the bridesmaids dresses or the wedding colour scheme; waistcoat, cravat or tie, shirt, shoes and socks. Unless your wedding party already has suitable suits, it is usual for the groom to pay for the suit hire, and certainly to cover the costs of any coordinating waistcoats and cravats.

What options are there?

There are lots of options when it comes to mens wedding attire and suits. From the traditional to the more relaxed and contemporary style, you are sure to find the perfect outfit for your wedding. The most common options are as follows:

Morning Suits are traditionally worn for weddings taking place before 3pm. A blue, black or grey tailcoat is worn with plain or pin-striped trousers, white wing-collared shirt, coloured waistcoat, cravat, top hat, gloves and sometimes a pocket square. These are usually associated with weddings taking place at the more luxury wedding venues such as stately homes and country houses.

Frock Coats, are available in a variety of colours and fabrics, with plain black trousers, a wing-collared shirt and a coloured cravat.

Lounge Suits are suitable for less formal weddings and are the usual choice for Registry Offices. Single or double breasted, two or three piece with a plain shirt and coloured tie. A quality lounge suit in light wool or even linen can look effortlessly elegant - and also represents a good investment. Unlike the bridal gown it can be worn again and again and is often associated with a more rustic setting like a barn wedding venue.

Black Tie, or Dinner Suits, are a suitable choice for late-afternoon weddings with a formal reception. A black dinner jacket is teamed with tapered trousers and braces, a shirt with a pleated front and turn-down collar, and a black bow tie. These outfits really suit an upmarket location such as a luxury hotel venue or an orangery setting.

Highland Dress consists of a kilt, a Bonnie Prince Charlie jacket or doublet, a sporran, laced brogues, socks, jabot (frill), cuff and skean dhu (a small dagger in the sock). It is unusual to wear highland dress unless you have strong Scottish connections. If you plan to get married in Scotland and follow the traditional dress, then this is a great option for the men in your wedding party.

It is worth exploring colours and the materials that are suitable for you when choosing what you will wear to you wedding. Of course, there are a wide variety of materials to choose from when it comes to wedding menswear. From wool blends, to tweed suits and high quality cottons. You'll also need to consider which silhouette is most suitable for you, whether that be a slim fit or tailored fit.

For brides who would like to wear a suit on their wedding day, the options are definitely growing. Chic suits for brides were a real trend in 2021. Often seen at town hall weddings, they were a real hit with micro-weddings during the pandemic. We are sure it's a trend that is here to stay! Our top tip when searching for a bridal suit, is to have the same mindset as if you were looking for a wedding dress. Look for styles you like on Pinterest and identify designers you love. That way, you'll find the perfect starting point. If you are getting your suit made bespoke by a tailor, start your consultations around 9-12 months in advance and bring your inspiration with you the initial design appointments.

Coordinating cravats, waistcoats and buttonholes

Cravats and waistcoats can be bought off the peg or made to measure. As your colours may need to compliment the bridesmaids' dresses, get as much information on those as possible, a sample of the fabric would really help you out. Don't go over the top with matching your waistcoat, tie and handkerchief - the general idea is to choose a patterned waistcoat, in-keeping with the general colour theme of the wedding, and then highlight the main colour - usually worn by the bridesmaids - by wearing a plain cravat or tie, and handkerchief.

If you are wearing a Morning Suit, then cravats should only be worn by the Groom and Best Man. A high necked waistcoat will stop the cravat from 'escaping'. And remember that it is traditional for the bottom button on your waistcoat to be left undone.

Menswear & Suit Hire FAQ's

The decision to hire or buy your wedding suit is usually dictated by your budget and the number of people in your wedding party. If you plan to wear an unusual morning suit or 'top hat and tails', it is more appropriate to hire as few men wear them other than on their wedding day. You can find the occasional bargain, second hand morning suit that has only been worn once for exactly that reason. A suit that can be re-worn, for work perhaps, can be a good investment, and many grooms feel that their wedding is the right time to invest in a really good quality suit to last for many years. If you have hired any suits, top hats or shirts, arrange for someone to return them after the wedding.

It's really important to know your measurements before you shop as it can speed up the entire process, whether you are buying or hiring. Be sure to get measurements for your groom, groomsmen, ushers, and ladies who will be wearing suits around 6-9 months in advance of the wedding day. If you are having suits made bespoke, ensure you speak to the tailor as they will be able to advise you on their lead times and how soon they will need the initial measurements.
