Can You Wear a Suit to Your Wedding?

The short answer is: yes.

Nowadays just about anything goes with wedding attire, even for the groom, and it’s common for guys to opt for a suit instead of a tuxedo for their big day.

Some men say they feel more comfortable in a suit, others say that they want something they wear after the rice has been thrown. We get it. Because, let’s face it, unless you are George Clooney, who repurposed his wedding tux for the Golden Globes, it’s unlikely you’ll wear your expensive penguin suit twice.

So, here are four tips on how to sub a suit for a tux and not get kicked out of the chapel:

1. Accessorize
Elevate a suit with accessories. Add some cufflinks, a pocket square that matches the bridal party colors, a fun bow tie, and the right shoes.

2. Up the ante with the fabric
Cheap fabric means a cheap suit, even if you paid a pretty penny for it. Make sure you pick a high-quality material that looks good.

3. Nail the fit
A suit that fits impeccably is a must. It also has to be the right fit for a wedding, which is slimmer and more fashion-forward. You want to look like you’re ready to party, not go on a job interview.

4. Consider getting your suit made to measure
Speaking of fit—if you really want a suit that fits like a glove, have it made to measure. We can do that for you here at Binghams. It’s a quick and easy process that involves us taking all your measurements while you choose the fabric, color, and style. The result is an amazing suit that feels like a second skin. We have several price points for made-to-measure suits, so we are guaranteed to have a price that fits your budget as well as your suit fits you.

And you thought getting her to say “yes” was the hard part…Kidding.
