What are you wearing for your wedding?

Congratulations! You are engaged and soon to be married. While your venue may have been decided upon, and the bridesmaid colors are selected (and no doubts the bride(s) is wearing a wedding dress this has been selected and already bought); but what about you and your suit? What are you wearing for your wedding? will it be a two piece or three piece suit? What type of style are you looking to wear? Would you prefer a traditional or modern look for your wedding day? There are many options and themes to help. We can make your bespoke wedding attire very personal by adding little custom details like your wedding date Welcome to the A Hand Tailored Suit Wedding Blog Part 1 (of 5) – What are you thinking about wearing for your wedding?

Option 1 – 1920’s Great Gatsby Style
Perhaps the most classic and instantly recognisable suit is the two piece evening suit, think about adding a waistcoat and go for the great gatsby look! this could be a double breasted low cut waistcoat or a slightly higher single breasted version. A bespoke evening jacket with satin or silk covered lapels buttons and jetting around the pockets worn with a bowtie, tailored trousers with satin or silk side seam on the trouser legs,  bespoke crisp white shirt worn with matching pocket square, either a six button single breasted waistcoat or a low cut four button waist,  this is a very elegant look. While traditionally popular with males, the two piece suit has seen a following with females and can be worn by both for their respective wedding days.

Option 2 – The Peaky Blinders Style
A very masculine style as seen below, in a mid grey herringbone tweed with wide peaked lapels which broadens the shoulders highlighting a thin waist. The matching trousers are high waisted double pleated trousers with matching six button single breasted tweed waistcoat. Bespoke detachable collar, the shirt in sky blue with contrasting white collar and cuffs, worn very well with this tweed newsboy cap. This style is perfect for a winter wedding.

Option 3 – Boho Glam 
Bespoke, Custom waistcoat worn with fitted shirt, open neck or bowtie even a thin tie, contrasting trousers with slim braces using natural colors inspired with a touch of hippie influences with a pop of color.

Option 4  Bow Inspired 
A very fashionable style, its all about the pop of color with your bowtie as seen below, try and keep it limited to three or four colors.  Textures and patterns in the bowtie are a must.

Option 5 – Contrasting Waistcoats. 
We can of course personalise any of the suiting options down to every last detail (such as the option of single or double breasted waistcoat style?)  in either pure cashmere or cashmere blend and tweed or any cloth you would like,  even changing just the lapel on the waistcoat as seen below and keeping the main body in a different color  to match trousers. It is your special day to wear what you want – so of course you will want this to be special to you to reflect your personality on your day – the choice is yours, there is no limit to what style or color your after. A nice little touch is to have the waistcoat made in the same cloth on the front and back allowing you to wear this again after your wedding with jeans or chinos.
