Trend Alert! Unique Suits

When it comes to wedding-day style, much of the emphasis is put on gowns. Endless styles (a-line, mermaid, ballgown, etc.), endless fabrics (lace, chiffon, silk, taffeta, brocade, satin, organza…), and endless media dedicated to finding just the right dress, but almost no one talks about wedding day style for suit-wearers. Just a plain black suit and boutonniere in the wedding colors will do. Thankfully, many of the weddings our team has been on recently have displayed a wide variety of different suit styles. Here are a few ways the team has seen suit-wearers step outside the box with their wedding day style. 

For those looking to just dip their toe into the waters of fun wedding fashion, I would love to introduce you to the blue suit! After black, navy is the second most popular suit color, but it’s been updated in recent years. Lighter and brighter blues work fantastic for those hot summer months, and black lapels and black trousers elevate the already classy navy suit to black-tie status!

Next up is the humble brown suit, and there are a couple of ways you can make it work for you. First, is to embrace the casual look of a tan or lighter brown. This is a great option if your venue and vibe is casual to start with, such as an outdoor barn or beach wedding. If you have a tropical destination wedding, a light tan linen suit hits just the right tone! You can also elevate brown by going with a mid to darker tone and adding some more visual interest with a textured fabric and details like a vest, pocket square, cufflinks, or even a pocket watch.

One of our favorite recent trends for suits is to wear a fun color or texture! Our whole team loves green suits which are great year round. A basic green works lovely in the spring, a rich jewel tone green is great for fall, and a shiny velvet is fantastic for a winter party (and keeps you nice and warm). And who said reception outfit changes only apply to people wearing gowns? We love when people opt for a classic suit for their ceremony, and then change into a fun, textured party jacket! This black silk brocade helped this person stand out from the rest of the wedding party wearing plain black suits.

You can’t go wrong with a classic white tux. It can be a very chic and sophisticated alternative to black. Some people think it can lean a little on the dated side of wedding fashion, but as long as you’re not wearing a cummerbund or frilly shirt, you are in the clear!

A beautiful black suit or tuxedo will obviously never go out of style, but our team is happy that a new array of options has opened up for everyone to express their own unique style on their wedding day.
