The Marc Darcy Guide To Men's Wedding Suits and Looks

There's no denying that your wedding day is one of the biggest milestones in your life, and selecting the right suit is essential. Your suit should reflect your personality while making you feel comfortable and at ease. Whilst it's safe to say that the bride's dress often takes centre stage, we believe the groom's look is just as important and equally deserves the spotlight!

Unveiling the Perfect Men's Wedding Suit

There are some key things to consider when selecting your suit. The venue, time of day, wedding aesthetic and location are all important factors that will play a pivotal role in your decision-making. 

If you’re getting married abroad in a sunnier climate, the weather will play a big part in your decision. Neutral-tone suits in lighter fabrics are generally the favoured choice for destination weddings. Our HM5 Suit is the perfect choice as it features a lycra mix fabric that makes it comfortable and flexible for all-day wear. It is also available in a single-breasted design or double-breasted design. 

A suit isn’t the only choice for warmer climates, waistcoat and chino looks are also a great option for those seeking a more casual smart aesthetic. 

Modern urban city weddings are set to be huge in 2024 and one tailoring trend that is emerging as top trumps for this style of wedding is black tie suits. This classic attire has been quietly gaining popularity in the last few years and is firmly at the forefront of men’s minds when it comes to groom attire. 

The clean monochromatic lines of this look will add to the sophistication of the city landscape. A black tie look is a great option for those looking for a suit that will see them beyond their wedding day as it’s simple design lends itself to a variety of dress codes. Our Dalton Tux Suit is the perfect choice with its traditional satin lapels, buttons and trims.

What time you get married will be a big consideration. Whilst the UK weather can be somewhat unpredictable summer weddings will always come with the possibility of sunshine (at least that’s always the hope!) 

If you are getting married in the middle of the day, it’s important to consider that it might be quite hot! With this in mind, opting for a two-piece suit over a three-piece suit will allow you to drop a layer, meaning you’ll be more comfortable with fewer bulky layers on. Plus, it is a more cost-effective option for those seeking to keep the budget low.

Tailoring: The Key to a Flawless Fit

An ill-fitting suit can ruin even the most meticulously planned look so it’ll come as no surprise when we tell you the secret to looking impeccable on your wedding day lies in the tailoring. 

Buying off the rack is a cost-effective way to suit and boot your grooms party but it is always advisable to have some tweaks made to your suit to make it custom to your body shape. Traditionally when purchasing a suit online customers were only able to purchase a set of three pieces. 

Nowadays, the online ordering process for a suit has improved and you can select a different ratio of sizes suited to your body shape. With this in mind, men often find it easier to size up their suits and have them tailored to fit them perfectly, thus creating a tailor-made suit for a fraction of the price. 

Additionally, having your suit tailored allows you to pay extra attention to details such as sleeve and trouser lengths or make custom changes, like changing the lining to match the bridal party.

Adding Personal Touches: Accessories Matter

Adding personal touches to your wedding look can help transform it from ordinary to extraordinary. One key way accessories play a part is by creating cohesion between the groomsmen and bridesmaids. A tie or bow tie is often the easiest way to match the colour scheme and synchronise the wedding party. 

Whilst it’s tempting to go for an exact colour match to the bridesmaid's dresses, we often find it’s more unique to play with prints and look for a floral or stripe that features the same colour as your wedding aesthetic.

Embrace Colour

Whilst the aforementioned black tie attire is a popular choice amongst the many, we’re seeing a micro trend emerge for coloured wedding suits. 

Navy and blue have traditionally been the go-to wedding colours, but we’re seeing grooms on the lookout for alternative choices such as burgundy, pastel blues, pinks, and greens. A bold, colourful suit is a great choice, especially if your wedding is leaning towards a colourful, bright aesthetic. 

Additionally, these items look great worn individually meaning your investment will go beyond your wedding day and mix into your wardrobe to create an abundance of other looks perfect for casual smart occasions.

Stepping Up Your Footwear Game

Completing your wedding look with the right pair of shoes is an essential but often overlooked part of the wedding look process. A classic pair of genuine leather shoes is an important finishing touch that will elevate and complete the wedding day ensemble. 

Investing in a pair of genuine leather shoes will be one of the savviest purchases you will make. Classic styles such as oxford or brogue shoes are the perfect choice, as they are versatile enough to be styled with a multitude of looks, making them a sound investment. 

Make sure to break in your shoes before the wedding day to avoid any discomfort.
