Choose the Best Suit & Wedding Venue in Montreal
There are so many places you can have your wedding in Montreal, it can be difficult to chose one venue. Really, it comes down to the budget you have for your wedding and what sort of style or theme you want your wedding to have. This similarly extends to the kind of suit or tuxedo you chose to wear.

Below, you will find resources available in Montreal that can help you plan your wedding, as well as lists of the most common wedding venues and the styles of wedding and suits that go well with them.
Pick the Best Wedding Suit for a Venue
When it comes to setting a specific tone for your wedding, the kind of suit you wear can be as important as the venue you choose for your wedding, such as if you wear a wedding tuxedo or bespoke suit. Or maybe you only want to wear a jacket or a vest to have a more relaxed wedding.

How to Choose a Wedding Venue
When it comes to choosing your wedding venue, planning is key. You have to decide where you want the wedding to be, and you have to make sure it is available for the day of your wedding. You also have to ensure all the other services you plan to have for your wedding are available. The photographer, the florist, and you have to be sure you have your suit or tuxedo by then, too.
But the pressure doesn't have to be on you alone. There are several wedding planners in Montreal that can help you plan the wedding you will never forget.

Types of Wedding Venues
Here are a broad overview of the most common types of venues and what each has to offer in terms of the feel of the wedding.
1. Reception Rooms & Indoor Wedding Venues
Reception rooms for weddings are venues that are usually very comfortable. Food, drink, and dancing tend to be the highlight of these weddings.
If your wedding takes place during the winter, later in the evening or at night, then an indoor wedding is probably the way to go for you. Popular venues include halls, hotels, restaurants, and theatres.
Wedding Suits for Indoor Weddings
3 piece bespoke suit (a men's suit jacket, vest, and pants; all made from the same material) is the best for indoor weddings.
For these kind of wedding venues, a standard, 3 piece wedding suit for men is best. This includes a man's jacket, a vest, and pants. It is easier to take off the layers of this suit off to get on the dance floor.
Tuxedos are another great suit to wear for indoor weddings venues. They are a very formal type of suit as they are tailored to your body type and help you look sharp.
2. Outdoor Wedding Venues
Outdoors wedding venues can be unique and are pretty popular in the spring, summer, and even during the fall. The outdoors can create beautiful wedding photo opportunities that incorporate nature.
Outdoor weddings provide beautiful photo opportunities.
People who love nature or who appreciate a more rustic style will probably like to have an outdoor wedding. Parks, beaches, lake sides, and piers are popular outdoor wedding venues. There are even some barns that you can rent out as your wedding venue if you want your wedding to have a rural aesthetic.
Wedding Suits for Outdoor Weddings
Since you will be celebrating the wedding outdoors and (hopefully!) in nice weather, you will want to wear a summer suit to the venue. These are light suits made from a porous fabric such as like linen or silk.

Also, as I alluded to above, you are subject to the elements at an outdoor venue. When planning an outdoor wedding, the wedding planners will probably account for the possibility of rain and either have another building or tent you can retreat to. Even so, it may be a good idea to wear a three piece suit to outdoor weddings. Something you can easily remove or take off depending on the weather.
3. Small Wedding Venues
Sometimes, the wedding isn't a huge gathering of everyone the bride and groom knows. Sometimes times it is only a small gathering of bridesmaids, groomsmen, and those closest to the bride and groom. As you can imagine, the size of the wedding can have an impact on the wedding venue chosen.
It can be easier to find smaller wedding venues.
It is a lot easier for restaurants to accommodate small weddings, so many of Montreal's fine restaurants are popular venues for small weddings. There are also parks around Montreal that can only host smaller groups of people than most weddings have.
Wedding Suits to Wear for Small Weddings
Weddings are always formal because you will probably meet members of a family you aren't familiar with, but because small weddings are usually composed of people you are familiar with, you don't have to dress up as much at small wedding venues. If you already own a suit or a tuxedo, you can wear that. If not, a simple made-to-measure or bespoke suit works best.

What do Groomsmen Wear to Each Wedding Venue?
No matter the wedding venue, the style of a groomsman's suit should be similar to that of the groom. The groom will probably wear one of the suit styles outlined above, but be sure to coordinate with them when deciding what to wear. You may also want to read our guide on groomsmen style.
