The Groom
The Outfit Change

The groom’s look is essential. Look your best in a full formal three piece and you’re bound to impress even the most discerning guests - but when the wedding reception comes along, that may become rather uncomfortable. When it’s time to party, Swap out the shirt, waistcoat and tie for an Oxford shirt, or switch the suit trousers for jeans and chinos. Comfort is a must on the dance floor.

It’s important to understand what the invite requests and not to go too over the top, nor too undercooked. It’s a fine art.

Summer Styles

The weather is getting cooler, and a rich palette of browns and greens make the perfect accompaniment. Heavier tweed suits and wool rich fabrics make the perfect autumn wedding suit, with a range of checks, flecks and textures to match. There’s no better time to take on a heritage look for that perfect formal profile.

Whether you’re seeking a blue tweed wedding suit, brown or grey, Suit Direct has a range of wool wedding suits to create a truly sophisticated, stylish outfit for any occasion. Dressing for autumn is always a pleasure – but when it comes to suits and tailoring, you can make it a fine art.

Don the three piece wedding suit with style in heritage fabrics inspired by Best of British tailoring, from top UK brands.

The Best Man
Mix and Match

You’re one of the most important in the wedding party, and the groom’s right hand man. So you’d better look your best alongside him. Try matching waistcoat colours to link yourself to the groom’s outfit – or wear an identical suit with a contrasting tie. The possibilities or endless. Just remember – coordinate or contrast, but never compete.

Charisma and Character

Matching and coordinating is essential – but your personality should be reflected in your outfit. Dress with eyecatching cufflinks, a textured shirt, or a colourful necktie. Even your socks can be a headturner. The Best Man’s charisma is the toast of the reception – make your suit reflect it.

Father Of The Bride
Formality is Key

You’re giving away your daughter. It’s one of the biggest days of her life, and one of the proudest of yours. Step up your suit to the next level with a distinguished, formal profile. Try a double breasted waistcoat, regal tweeds or a bow tie.

Match and Coordinate

The key to a perfect father of the bride suit is matching the main party with a unique flair. A matching colour scheme is a must – but you can approach it however you please. Wear a double breasted waistcoat if the groom wears a single, wear a bow tie to contrast with a necktie. Perhaps even try reversing the colour scheme – match your jacket with the groom’s waistcoat, or vice versa.

The Guest

  • Black Tie – Tuxedo jacket, trousers and white shirt, with that all important black bow tie.
  • Creative Black Tie – Traditional black tie with a contrast coloured waistcoat, tie or cummerbund.
  • Lounge Suit – Any suit that isn’t top hat and tails. Better known as a business suit.

Textures & Patterns
