Suits for the Boys

Today we are going to talk about the grooms suit.

Most grooms will wear a black or grey suit. Sometimes a groom will wear a cream or a light-coloured suit to be a bit different. The same problem occurs at every wedding with every groom.

When women come to give the groom a hug and a kiss after the wedding, their makeup rubs off onto the shoulder of his suit.

It leaves an obvious mark and I see people constantly trying to wipe it off with their hands.

A simple solution for a dark or black suit is to carry some wet wipes or baby wipes and whenever you see any makeup marks on the suit, just wipe them straight off.

If the groom is wearing a pale colour suit, there’s not a great deal you can do if you get makeup on it and trying to rub it off makes it worse.

So, there are things you need to consider if you want to have a cream or white suit. You can hire a second jacket so that if the jacket does get marked badly with makeup you can change into it.

With black or darker coloured suits, it’s very simple to take the makeup off. They might sound like small details, but they can be a real problem on the wedding day and forever after in the photos.

Make sure the suit fits well and doesn’t crease too much.

Whether you hire or buy is your decision, but a quality suit really does stand out.

What’s that old saying? Clothes maketh the man.
