Suit Options for Weddings in 2013 & 2014
15 June 2017/ Wedding
Although not as fickle as the bride’s fashion, trends related to the groom’s attire are susceptible to changes. For 2013 and 2014, it appears that less is more as ceremonies are continuing to be less traditional. This leaves room for grooms to be both more expressive and their suits more versatile.
For the groom who opts to continue with tradition, the trend this year is still a slimmer cut. Expect one button options on dinner suits with peak lapels and instead of the full satin lapels, satin trimming is popular. The tighter fitting waist and accented lapels make the desirable silhouette.Less Formal
Although many are following the formula above, quite a few weddings will go toward the less formal side. Many grooms and their groomsmen are opting toward suits instead of dinner suits and for those who still want to look somewhat formal the 3 piece suit works. Cotton and linen will be popular for destination and daytime services.
Colours will become less traditional too. Even if the decision is to stay formal with a dinner suit, many are choosing midnight blue. This colour looks particularly striking in the evening light. Less formal grooms are also choosing midnight blue but in the suit form. Charcoal grey will also be a popular choice of suit.
Try Some Checks and Plaid
Adding some pattern to your vest or jacket is a great way for the groom’s attire to be a little more dapper. This can be a great way to bring your personal style into the outfit and the bridal party.
(Quick note)The shorter, stockier man needs to careful of the wearing these patterns as they can make him look shorter and wider. If you don’t know what you should or shouldn’t wear, get an expert who can guide you in the right direction.
Everyone is looking for a way to save some money. As mentioned before, men are opting less for extremely formal wear in favor of lounge suits. This is a sign of the guys cutting back a little on expenditures. After all, formal wear is something that doesn’t get used often. However, a good quality suit can be used over and over. The key here is to be budget minded but not cheap. Go ahead and spend a little more to look great on your wedding day but know that you’ll be able to use that finely fitted suit on other important occasions. I.e. other weddings, races etc… It’s a great way to be cost conscious and fashionable at the same time.
In closing, it appears as though there is a little something for every groom’s taste in 2012 and 2013. Consider these and other trends and know you’ll look your best on the big day.
