Planning a Destination Wedding? Here’s How to Pick the Ideal Suit!
You saved the date and booked the venue. You chose the menu and wedding cake filling. I mean, you even bought the rings. You are sorted! But are you?
When you pick a destination wedding, it’s important to stick to the theme and this includes both the wedding dress and the groom’s suit. Since we first launched our company a year ago, we’ve helped many grooms find a suit that feels comfortable and looks appropriate for the selected backdrop of their big day. But with so many options out there, we decided to ask our trusted partners and destination experts, My Wedding Away, to help us provide ideas on matching your outfit to the wedding’s concept!
A wedding suit for every concept
Rustique c’est chic
A converted farm house, the fragrance of flowers and lemon groves in the evening breeze, fairy lights…you get the picture. Your suit should reflect the clean lines of the surrounding architecture and the simple serenity of the countryside. Check out our Richmond Brown Check 3 Piece suit from the GOLD collection. It’s limited edition and incorporates many design features usually found in bespoke tailoring such as underarm sweat patches, boutonniere loops, surgeon’s cuffs and even your embroidered monogram and the suit’s ordinal number in the inside pocket.
Ideal destination – A garden reception in the English countryside
A historic villa with magnificently instagrammable views, a 5* hotel that pampers you from check in to check out, an exquisite menu of culinary delights that your guests won’t forget. This is the time to step up and show up in your finest. We suggest our Barbican 3 Piece Navy Tuxedo, a discreet colour variation on the classic black tie ensemble. With its lightweight half canvas interlining, luxury shawl lapels and even a free bow tie, it will wow your guests and, more importantly, your partner. And besides, it’s a staple wardrobe addition which you can take back home and wear in future formal events.
Ideal destination – Channel your inner celebrity in the Greek islands
An ice castle, a village church or a splendid garden, sometimes the setting’s personality calls for a classic. The advantage of these destinations is that, if you have a quiet personality, you can go with something that feels right for you without having to dress out of character. For these venues, we’d suggest our Weybridge Blue Black 3 Piece suit. With a blue and black windowpane pattern in the jacket and matching navy waistcoat and trousers, this timeless suit will look awesome but, thanks to its tailored slim fit and stretch fabric, it will also feel comfortable enough to keep you dancing all night. And what’s even better, is that you can then style it down and wear it on other occasions as well.
Ideal destination – A romantic wedding in Italy
An explosion of colour
For some customers, colours represent their cultural heritage, whereas others are looking for a suit that really stands out. Responding to the requirements of our grooms, we introduced a collection of luxury suits that boast exquisite colours and fabrics, some of which are exclusively available in our showroom. Pink, green, red, gold or white, we have something for every taste and we’d be delighted to discuss your preferences and find the outfit that feels right for you.
Ideal destination – Pop the champagne in France!
