What Every Groom Should Know About His Suit

You might think that grooms don't face as much hassle as the bride when getting ready for the wedding, but getting to the final look as a groom is not that simple!

Here is what you and your groom should know when it comes to his wedding suit:

Decide on a Style:

Don't decide on what you want to wear the last minute. You never know what might need any alterations.

Listen to the Bride:

She's a lady and knows best, and will give you great advice. She wants you to look as good as possible, believe us!

Follow the Etiquette:

No matter how much you hate suits, tuxedos, and ties, wearing jeans, colored suits, or (God forbid) your favorite band t-shirt is not acceptable.

Tie Your Tie:

If you don't know how to tie a tie yet, this is a good occasion to learn how to do it.

Shine Your Shoes:

Yes even if they're new! Take your shoes to get professionally shined or put some heart into shining them yourself.

Wear What "Suits" You! Here are a few tips on what "suit" suits your body:

There are different types and styles of suits and formal wear, and they don't necessarily look good on everyone. The bridal guide has posted these really good tips that we love:

The Husky Groom: If you have a husky physique, try on a 1 button suit to lengthen your torso.

The Thin Groom: If you happen to be thin and trim, you will look great in a 2 button tuxedo. It will add a few inches to your upper body.

 

The Athletic Groom: If you have an athletic body and broad shoulders, a 3 button design with a notch collar will enhance your shoulders.

The Tall Groom: If you're pretty tall, a 5 button suit with an open jacket will suit your figure.

The Tall and Thin Groom: Definitely wear a double-breasted tuxedo.
