To Hire or To Buy?
Tip: the same will go for the groomsmen, they don’t have to buy their suits if they don’t feel like they are going to wear it again. Let them make up their own minds about this one!
What Type Of Suit?
If your future groom and his groomsmen aren’t sure which types of wedding suits to go for, use the following as a guide:
Season: When are you getting married? Summer weddings will usually feature suits with lighter colours and more breathable materials. However, winter weddings will feature suits with thicker material and darker colours such as black, maroon or navy.
Formality: How formal is the wedding going to be? Formal weddings might require tuxedos while short pants and white button shirts can be pulled off at casual summer weddings!
Location: Are you having a beach wedding or a wedding in a cathedral? Your wedding venue will help you determine the attire!
Tradition: How traditional do you want to go? Plenty of traditional African wedding attire incorporates bright colours and patterns into the look and theme of the wedding. If your tradition and background mean a lot to you, it should definitely feature on your big day!
Career: Perhaps your groom works in the navy or the army, have him wear his suit on your big day – it will mean the world to him!
Remember, you want your wedding party to feel comfortable and confident on your big day. So if you get stuck somewhere along the lines during your wedding planning journey, just ask them for their opinion. It will probably mean a lot to them!
