The suit you wear on your wedding day will probably be the most important outfit you’ll put on in your life. This makes it the perfect opportunity to let your creative juices flow, unleash your sartorial genius and find an outfit that really reflects your personality.
Like weddings dresses, wedding suits are subject to trends and fads. While some of these trends may be over and done with before the wedding flowers have even wilted, others will be more permanent and will influence wedding suit design for years to come. To help you find the suit that’s perfect for you, and to ensure your wedding suit is ahead of the curve, we’re taking a look at some of the best suit trends for 2019.
Bold and bright
Once upon a time, grooms might have automatically turned to dark greys, blacks and blues for their wedding outfits. These days, however, men are a little bolder. One of the top trends for 2019 is going to be vibrant, colourful wedding suits. As @Bridesmagazine says:
“For the groom who wants to put his best fashion foot forward and let the threads do the talking, vibrant suits in bright hues such as purple, burgundy or ink blue are massively on trend.”
The last thing you want on your wedding day is to look like a sack of potatoes. Opting for a slim fitting suit will help you to show off your figure and look sleek and stylish on the day. If you’ve opted for a slim fitting jacket, make sure you follow through on the look with slim fitting or tapered trousers. If you have a larger frame, make sure your suit isn’t too tight, otherwise it may not be the most flattering choice for your wedding day.
Tweed has made something of a comeback in recent years and this trend is set to continue in 2019. In fact, a lot of grooms are taking things one step further by choosing a three-piece tweed suit for their wedding day. As well as helping to keep you warm in cold weather, tweed will add a certain old-fashioned charm to your wedding look. However, as this is an insulating material, it may not be ideal for weddings taking place in the middle of the summer.
This trend, on the other hand, is ideal for summer weddings. Light coloured fabric is the perfect choice for a hot weather suit. Not only will it reflect the summery aesthetic of your surroundings. Light fabric will also help to keep you cool on hot days.
Ideally, you should avoid bright white as this can end up looking a little dated. Instead, opt for an off-white or even a light blue, brown or grey. Match your light suit with a brightly coloured tie to add a bold splash to the outfit.
