Choosing the right attire for your wedding day can be made simple - pick one, get it fitted, buy it and you’re good to go! There are a few factors deserving of your consideration though, which may include a combination of the style of wedding, your individual taste, the time of day and a compliment to your gorgeous bride’s chosen wedding dress. Oh, and a little tip from the TOAST family – blue is the new black – so let’s go suit shopping. The range available for grooms wear is quite extensive – from the classic black tie (black dinner suit and bow tie) to cocktail (worn after 5pm) or an informal suit, where you can choose whether or not to wear a jacket (perfect for beachside weddings in our hot summers).
We find that the Mornington Peninsula lends itself to a less formal approach of attire, but ultimately your choice of suit must reflect your personal style and be comfortable enough for you to be relaxed in, so you and your lovely bride can both enjoy the day ahead. If you feel you are quite style savvy, choosing a linen or cotton suit for summer is an ideal choice. Bow ties are on trend again, and if the climate lends itself to shirt and trousers, perhaps the addition of a waistcoat or braces will lift this casual look to a more finished look for you to stand out. Or mix it up a little, perhaps a blue jacket with lighter beige pants.
Winter weddings call for a woollen suit made classic by the smart accessorising of cuff links and tie. A more slim-fitted suit is popular these days, with the shift in colour from dedicated black or grey being overtaken by the rise of blue in all shades. So make time for suit shopping, whether purchased or hired and have fun with it!
