If you’re reading this then, yes, congratulations, man. You’ve found The One and been brave enough to either pop the question or say yes as an answer, and the road to eternal happiness has been paved with love.
What’s more, you’ve probably embarked on some of the planning, at least the bigger stuff like a venue and the caterers and all that sort of big game hunting that will make your big day a little unique. Chances are, your wife has probably been searching for the perfect dress too, maybe even found it. And that’s where this blog comes in because the suit or tux that you pull on the morning of your big day is just as important.
You are going to make up one-half of the aisle, the vows, and the photographs, and so you need to pick the perfect tux. And here is how:
Know The Setting
If you’ve been deciding on the big things – like the location – then you will no doubt now what sort of wedding you are having to dress for, and this is going to be crucial to understand. Oh yes, there are different types of wedding. You could be having a beach wedding, or going for a bit of country casual, or a black tie event, or even a ballroom twist, possibly even an outdoor do, one that takes place in a glade in a wood. Each of these is different, so make sure you keep the setting in mind when deciding on a suit and, if you are unsure, then tell the assistant your plans and let them help you.
Never Forget the Fit
It doesn’t matter whether you are wearing a suit or a tuxedo (or even a t-shirt), it has to fit you perfectly. This is the most important thing when deciding on the suit because an ill-fitting suit will haunt you for the rest of your life. You see, sloppy fitting clothes won’t just look dodgy, but they completely obscure what you look like. As such, always consult an expert. That doesn’t mean spending a fortune on a tailored tuxedo if you can’t afford one; it just means finding someone who knows what your size is, who knows about sizing and can deliver the right fit.
A Pinch of You
There is a decorum to uphold when it comes to wedding suits and tuxedos, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a pinch of you. It could be that you look for this little bit of you when looking at your looking at a selection of benchmark wedding bands, or what to get engraved on it. It could be that you go with a pocket watch to set your suit off, or a pair of bright socks, maybe even some converse. Whatever it is, don’t let it overrule your suit, just let it sprinkle a bit of you on it.
You Deserve To Splurge
Your wife to be isn’t going to compromise on the dress, and for great reason too, which is why you shouldn’t either. In years to come, you are going to forget a lot of the details about that day because the adrenaline, the emotion, and the booze will sort of distort your memory. What won’t be forgotten, however, is what you were wearing; there will be visual reminders all over the place. Like we said above, that doesn’t mean you have to blow your budget wide open. What it does mean is, if you find the suit, the one you want that is slightly out of your price range, well, bend the rules a bit and get it; after all, you deserve it.
