Your morning prayers, answered

If your wedding is a more formal affair, look no further than this classic groom’s suit (). The long-line, single-button jacket is cutaway at the front to reveal the contrasting striped trousers. Finish the look properly with patent shoes and a coordinated buttonhole.

Three-piece perfection

A three-piece suit () is not only a great way to add an extra insulating layer if the wedding is during the colder months, but wearing a waistcoat helps create the appearance of a V-shaped physique, without having to hit the gym. Plus, it will keep you looking smart when you want to whip off your jacket on the dance-floor during the reception.

Something blue

The bride might only wear her wedding dress once, but the great thing about a wedding suit is that if you buy right, you can keep wearing it after the big day is over. A blue, single-breasted suit will never go out of style, so it’s a savvy choice for those looking to get maximum wear out of their wedding tailoring. To keep it looking smart, pair it with some well-polished shoes – black for a city wedding or dark brown if you’re heading to the country.

Rock the DJ

Ever since Daniel Craig sported one in Spectre, we’ve seen a white dinner jacket revival on the red carpet, and it’s a superb way to bring a new vibe to a chic black-tie wedding. However, it is definitely a sartorial statement, so if you’re looking to try something a little different from the wedding norm, keep the rest of your outfit as classic as possible. Stick to a white textured shirt, black trousers, black cufflinks, patent lace-ups and a black self-tied dickie bow. If even that’s a step too far, an elegant black dinner jacket will add a luxe touch to your look.
