One for the Grooms or the men in your life this week (if they don’t follow us…then casually hint to them to read this, it will be worth it!) It’s not just the women who want to look their best on their big day and remember those photos will last a lifetime, so you want to stay looking sharp all day long.
The wonderful Alexandra Wood, a top Bespoke Tailor and one of our preferred suppliers, gives us her top tips on choosing your wedding day attire and tips for the day itself.
1 – Three piece is an ideal look. When you’re hot from heat or because of nerves, this allows you to stay looking smart all day long.
2 – Choose a colour that flatters you, not flattens you.
3 – Choose a plain, smooth fabric. Patterned fabrics can distort through a camera lens.
4 – Purchase two shirts. It’s a long day and people naturally sweat more than usual (it’s the nerves!) Therefore you’ll be thankful for a shirt change when it comes to the evening.
5 – Roll your sleeves up and take the jacket off to create a more relaxed (but still trendy) look for the evening. Fold carefully though, you want to make it look intentional.
6 – Remember to un-do your jacket every time you have your photo taken. If not, the lapels ride up and can ruin your photos.
7 – Wearing a two button suit? Never close both. Always just the top button.
8 – In general, three piece suits look better open when the ceremony is over.
9 – Go bespoke where possible. A suit that is cut to perfection will leave you feeling proud of those photos forever and unlike the bride, the suit can be worn again.
See, we told you it would be worth reading! Such great tips and Alexandra really knows her stuff!
