Men Wedding Suit Hire


For many people, getting married is the most important thing they will ever do; it is certainly the most important suit that you will ever wear. For modern men, wedding suit hire is massively important. It is no longer about all eyes being on the bride on the big day, the suit worn by the groom is also under just as much scrutiny as the dress worn by the soon to be Mrs. For the groom, it is essential to not only look good, for your bride and the guests on the day but to pick the correct suit for the all-important wedding photographs. These photos will be part of the family long after the day itself has passed, and you will not want to look back on the album in years to come and cringe at the sight of the outfit.

Wedding suit hire gives the groom a myriad of options and there are countless different choices in styles, colours and fabrics to cater to the taste of any man.

Types of wedding suits

Wedding suits are available in the latest fashions or in more traditional, contemporary styles, opting for the latter is often the better choice for men. Wedding suit hire that is centred around a more traditional ceremony will mean the groom’s outfit being matched by all other male members of the wedding party; these will include the best man, fathers of the bride and groom, page boys and ushers. It will be important for the groom to pick a type of suit that is available in sizes to fit both adults and children.  
The most popular types of suits hired for weddings include:
  • Lounge suits
  • Morning suits (tailcoats)
  • Edwardian suits
  • Frock coats
  • Highland wear
Any of these options is perfect for traditional ceremonies. Many modern grooms are opting for an Edwardian or frock coat suit to give a classic look whilst also being contemporary. The Edwardian suit offers a longer thigh-length single breasted coat with the frock coat extending to three-quarter length.

Wedding suit accessories

The choices of accessories are also an important consideration for men. Suit hire for weddings generally comes as a package which is inclusive of all the required items; this is particularly beneficial when there are several males wearing matching outfits. The accessories include:
  • Wing or standard collar shirt (depending on choice of neckwear)
  • Neckwear (cravat, tie or bow-tie)
  • Waistcoat
  • Cufflinks
  • Handkerchief
The colour choice of the neckwear and handkerchief will normally be done to complement the dresses of the bride and bridesmaids or colour scheme of the wedding. It will be important to ensure your choice of hire shop is able to accommodate these colours. Some companies offer to make these items from material provided by you; this can be a beneficial option.

Hiring a wedding suit

The fact that a suit can now be hired online as-well as in hire shops in towns and cities is a big positive for men, wedding suit hire online can be quick and easy, perfect for anyone with little spare time. However, it does not offer the chance for a made-to-measure suit, something which gives hire shops the advantage.
