You can find yourself pretty stressed when planning a wedding. But there is one aspect of wedding planning that stresses men the most.
This one aspect of wedding planning stresses men the most
You've probably guessed it: it's figuring out what is the best suit to wear to the wedding. Here, we will explain what suits are the best for weddings, along with some advice on colour and fabric choices for that suit.
What is a Wedding Suit Called?
A wedding suit can go by a couple of different names. It is really any suit you would wear to a wedding.
The most popular suit to wear for a wedding is a tuxedo. Tuxedos are often worn for formal occasions like weddings.

However, tuxedos are also usually reserved as a form of evening wear. If the wedding is happening during the day, most men will agree that the best suit to go for would be a bespoke suit.
Weddings that occur during the day are often considered less formal than weddings that happen in the evening. A bespoke suit is similar to a tuxedo in that it is still considered formal and looks best on a man.
What Colours to Wear to a Wedding?
Here are the best colours to wear to a wedding
What the best colours are for a wedding suit depends on where the wedding is happening. For indoor ceremonies, darker colours like dark charcoal or navy are favoured.
Lighter colours like light tan or grey are often best for outdoor wedding receptions. Many men combine these colours with dark pants. This is a great strategy. Dark pants both go well with a light suit. If at any point the reception moves inside, you can change into a darker jacket and the pants will go with the suit.
The Best Wedding Suit Fabrics
The best fabric for your wedding suit will depend on the season the wedding is taking place in. You are dressing for the weather.
In the spring or summer months, a suit made from light fabrics like silk and/or linen works best for weddings. In the fall or winter, heavier fabrics like a form of wool or velvet in a tuxedo can be effective.
Where Can You Get a Men's Wedding Suit?

Nathon Kong adds a unique aspect to the suits we tailor. Each wedding suit tells a story through a work of art woven into the suit lining.

Each artwork is created by a participant at Les Impatients, a nonprofit organization that supports people with mental health troubles through therapeutic art programs. The art pieces tell the stories of an artists journey to mental health recovery.
