Hey there! It’s your Wedded Wonderland bestie and expert in menswear.

We couldn’t be more excited to help you and your groom navigate the world of groomsmen suits.

First things first, let’s talk about who pays. Traditionally, groomsmen cover the cost of their attire, but it’s becoming more common for couples to chip in or cover the expenses entirely. 

Sit down with your groom and discuss what works best for your budget and preferences. Once that’s sorted, it’s time to move on to the fun part: choosing the suits!

You can trust us when we say that the key to finding the perfect suits is all about fit and style.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Start Early

Don’t leave suit shopping to the last minute. Start at least a few months before the wedding to allow ample time for fittings and alterations if needed.

Consider The Theme

Think about the overall vibe and theme of your wedding. Whether it’s classic and elegant or modern and trendy, the groomsmen suits should complement the aesthetic you’re going for.

Coordinate with the Bride’s Dress

While the groomsmen don’t need to match the bridesmaids exactly, it’s essential to ensure that their attire coordinates well with your dress and the overall color scheme of the wedding.

Think About Comfort

Your groomsmen will be wearing their suits all day, so comfort is key. Opt for breathable fabrics and consider the weather and venue when choosing suit styles.

Accessorise Smartly

Accessories can elevate a suit and bring the whole look together. Think about adding matching ties, pocket squares, or boutonnieres to add a personalized touch.

Online & In Store Shopping

Now, let’s talk logistics. If you’re considering ready-to-wear suits, you have the option of shopping online or in-store. 

Online shopping offers convenience, but be sure to check sizing charts carefully and consider ordering swatches to ensure color accuracy. 

In store shopping allows for fittings and personalized assistance from knowledgeable staff, which can be invaluable, especially if any of the groomsmen are unsure about their sizing or style preferences.

When it comes to measurements, accuracy is key. Encourage your groom to visit a tailor for professional measurements or provide detailed instructions for at-home measurements if necessary. 

Remember, it’s always better to double-check measurements to avoid any last-minute wardrobe mishaps.

As for colors and styles, don’t be afraid to get creative! 

Classic options like navy or charcoal gray are always safe, but don’t hesitate to explore other colors and patterns that reflect your wedding theme and personal style. And if you’re feeling adventurous, mix-and-match suits can add a fun and modern twist to the groomsmen’s look.

Overall, the most important thing is to have fun with the process and trust your instincts. With a little bit of planning and some expert advice (thanks to yours truly!), I have no doubt that your groom and his groomsmen will look absolutely dashing on your wedding day.
