Surely weddings are all about the bride, right?! Not in the SA Weddings office, no! We believe that a wedding is a celebration between two people, and therefore it is only right that both share the spotlight.

Also, we will openly admit that there's nothing we love more than ogling at handsome men in well-fitted suits... best job ever!

So, gents...if you're in the market for a dashing wedding day suit, we'd suggest you keep on reading and take our advice for finding your perfect suit to compliment your beautiful bride.

Don't Wait Until The Last Minute

Finding a suit does not require as much time as a wedding dress, but that does not mean you should go suit shopping the weekend before your wedding! Think and shop ahead as it's better to be prepared and leave time for multiple fittings and last minute alterations.

Fit Matters

The key to pulling off a killer suit is the fit and there are a few varieties to choose from (generally regular, slim and tailored). Our best piece of advice is to get a professional to help you choose your wedding day suit.

We have a list of fantastic service providers who will go out of their way to make sure that your suit is tailored specifically to your body shape and size. Trust us, it is definitely worth the extra time and effort!

Season & Colour

This applies to the fabric of your suit and of course, the colour! A classic black suit is generally the go-to choice and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. There's just something about a man in a perfectly fitted black suit...it's completely swoonworthy!

Other alternatives to a classic black is a beautiful electric or midnight blue suit. Feel free to mix up your colours - your options are not limited. For the more laid back groom, there's the option of chinos and a blazer, or simply chinos and a shirt with some great accessories.
