Wedding specialBy Dinner suit team
Well the good news is that there’s never been a better time to buy a wedding or tuxedo suit. The price of mens formal clothing a has literally tumbled over the last couple of years (thanks to online retailers) so you can now bag yourself an affordable piece and still look great.
The rules behind wedding clothing are not overly complicated. As is tradition the groom, best man, ushers etc. should all look similar (normally the groom has an open flower in the lapel to look different) i.e. if the groom is wearing morning dress, other men in the party should follow suit. Hint … always speak to the groom, do not assume you’re making the right choice. If you are a groom or best man we recommend checking out our how-to guides.
If the wedding invite has specified morning dress and you are part of the grooms party then we recommend you take a look at the morning suits and accessories featured below. Morning dress would normally include a black or grey tailcoat worn with striped or matching plain trousers. A plain white shirt along with a waistcoat should be worn. Accessories such as a top hat/ cravat can also be worn with the outfit.
