Let’s face it, lads, the ladies have somewhat stolen the spotlight when it comes to weddings, so much so that it’s become unanimous all over the world. Maybe it’s time to step into the limelight next to your significant other and make the most of your big day including the days leading up to it.
Essential Grooming Tips for the Groom-To-Be
Get the Perfect Suit
The main things you need to consider when shopping for your wedding suit are as follows:
- The Fit
The fit of your suit could make or break your entire look. The fabric quality, colour etc. will not matter if the fit does not complement your body.
There are three main types of fits. We’ll break it down for you below:
- Tailored – If you want your suit to have some room for movement and prefer it to be symmetrical and streamlined, the tailored option would be ideal.
- Regular – If you have a bit of a boxy shape and larger build, it would be best if you went for a style that allows room for movement and is a comfortable fit. This classic suit will be the perfect option for you
- Slim – For the gentlemen with a lean and slim body structure, this sort of fit would prove to be the most flattering.
You can decide what color you’d like your suit to be by taking into consideration your wedding theme and your significant other’s dress as well. This will make it much easier to decide what color range you have to choose from and the options you have left to explore.
The season will also determine what colors or fabric would be more suitable. In winter, a tweed suit would work really well with the overall atmosphere.
Some great quality fabrics include wool-blended, wool or worsted. Suits crafted from these are long lasting and retain their shape. For when it gets hot, you should opt for cooler fabrics, such as linen, which is very breathable and has a smooth texture to it. If your budget is tight, go for cotton and polyester.
This is your opportunity to show your personality and turn your outfit into something unique.
From classy, modern wrist watches to antique ones, accessories add character and can be fun to experiment with. Look for sophisticated cuff-links, tie clips and silk ties with intriguing patterns. Again, keep in mind your wedding theme and season; select your accessories accordingly.
