THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A WEDDING SUIT

HOW LONG DO YOU NEED TO DESIGN AND MAKE A CUSTOM SUIT?

Briggins custom weddings suits take approximately 4 weeks to make, following your initial design and fitting consultation. However, we recommend coming into our Showroom no less than 8 weeks prior to your wedding to leave time for changes and so that you have your suit well before your wedding day to add any additional touches like accessories.  

WHAT TYPE OF WEDDING ARE YOU HAVING?

Informal, beachside, traditional, black-tie… there are many different types of weddings, and it’s always important to consider this when designing your suit. Black-tie weddings call for sophisticated tuxedos, French cuff shirts and bow ties, whilst informal weddings are an invitation to break with traditional wedding etiquette and play around with fun colours and styles.  

WHAT ACCESSORIES DO YOU NEED?

No wedding suit is complete without perfectly styled and coordinated accessories. When thinking about your wedding suit, don’t forget to plan your shirt, tie, belt, shoes and socks. Many grooms also opt for a pocket square, tie clip and cufflinks for a sophisticated finish. Oh, and don’t forget your hair! Make sure that you think about your haircut and facial hair before the day and plan your look with a qualified barber or hair stylist.

MORE THAN A SUIT

NECKTIE

The most common necktie, as seen worn with business attire, comes in an almost endless range of colours and textures. Neckties also come in varying widths from the classic four-in-hand necktie, to the more contemporary skinny necktie. For more formal occasions, but also for casual contemporary weddings, bowties remain a popular choice. Finally, some grooms may prefer a statement cravat, western bowtie or bolo tie.

SHOES AND SOCKS

Let your clothes guide your shoe choice. Black suits pair well with black shoes, whilst navy blue looks great with tan shoes. We have a variety of shoe styles, ranging from popular, lace-up oxfords to classic brogues and more relaxed loafers and boots. When it comes to socks, the standard rule is to match the colour to your pant. Although, socks are also an opportunity to have fun, adding a pop of colour or a novelty print on your socks that only you will know is there.

BELT AND BRACES

Belts offer all round support for your suit pant and also aid in keeping your shirt neatly tucked in. We recommend matching your belt with your shoes. Coordinating braces can be used to add elegance and a traditional touch to a formal suit or in a fun colour, can act as a quirky accessory for a contemporary, casual suit.

POCKET SQUARE OR HANDKERCHIEF

The easiest way to add a touch of refinement to your outfit is by adding a pocket square to your suit jacket pocket. Even if you don’t want something that’s on show, it never hurts to have a handkerchief tucked in your pant pocket for the ceremony.

CUFFLINKS & TIE CLIPS

When it comes to shirt cuffs, there are several options but we recommend that you be guided by your suit choice. If you choose a formal suit for your wedding, pair it with a French cuff shirt with cufflinks. Cufflinks can be simple and sophisticated, or a lot of fun with colourful, symbolic and even cheeky options available. Whilst not as common, tie clips really add a dapper finish to a regular or skinny tie.

GROOMING

Your wedding look is not just about your clothing, it also includes your hair. Don’t wait until your wedding day to think about your hair and facial hair styling. Briggins’ Barber recommends having your hair cut 1 week before the wedding, and having your facial hair trimmed the day before the wedding for a sleek finish.
