Couples that choose a destination wedding usually have a clear picture in their mind of how they want their special day to look like. This is why it’s essential to pick experienced planners, like our fantastic team at My Wedding Away. We understand your requirements and have both the local networks and the in-depth knowledge of the destination to be able to cater to your every expectation.
But it’s not just about the backdrop, the menu or the music. Both the bridal dress and the groom’s suit should be selected with the destination in mind. As with all wedding outfits, they should feel comfortable and look stunning but it’s also important that they tie in with the scenery. Luxury menswear brand, Aristocracy London, has worked with us on a number of weddings to find the perfect suit for each occasion and we asked them to share some tips.
Here’s how to match your suit to the wedding’s theme
Countryside chic: Rustic venues are all about simplicity and serene landscapes. Go for a timelessly classic suit that reflects the unadorned charm of your surroundings, such as the Kensington Grey Check 3 Piece suit from Aristocracy London’s GOLD collection. It’s both limited edition and personalised, which means that your monogram and the suit’s ordinal number will be embroidered free of charge in the jacket’s inside pocket. Equally important are its stunning design features, which are usually only found in bespoke tailorings, such as boutonniere loops, underarm sweat patches and surgeon’s cuffs.
Ideal destinations – From romantic castle wedding ceremonies in Scotland to an inspired beautiful English country garden reception, you’ll look perfect in this elegantly appointed suit.
Royalty for a day: Some destinations offer the ultimate 5-star wedding service and are all about luxury and glamour. Why not? Treat yourselves to celebrity lifestyle but make sure you look the part. For the ultimate instagrammable wedding, nothing less than a black-tie outfit will do and our favourite is the Mayfair 3 Piece Blue tuxedo. A colour twist on the classic black tie outfit, with lightweight half-canvas interlining, luxury peak lapels and a free bow tie, it will definitely turn heads and look great in your wedding photos.
Ideal destinations –You’ll have the look and feel of sophistication and elegance while blending into a more casual subdued ocean blue setting such as the incredibly popular Greek islands.
Understated charm: Some venues, such as village churches or landscaped gardens, call for quiet elegance. One of our favourite suits is the Wimbledon Navy & Green 3 Piece suit. Featuring a green windowpane pattern in the jacket and matching navy waistcoat and trousers, this stunning suite comes with one added bonus: you can style it down and, thanks to its superior quality, wear it for years to come in other events, a night out or the office.
Ideal destinations –The perfect suit match for an over-the-top romantically inspired destination wedding in one of the most loved filled countries to marry; Italy!
Under the sun: Heading to a warm and sunny wedding destination? Aristocracy London offers a stunning selection of wedding suits but what really caught our eye is their latest collection which includes 3 piece suits in a variety of colours and patterns that are the perfect match for colourful destinations and grooms that are happy to stand out. This fabulous white mandarin collar suit will be available to purchase soon and it will simply look stunning under the sun!
Ideal destinations –This suit is ideally suited for beautiful, tropical sun locations such as the Caribbean islands. Here luxury and great taste combine with the sun, palm trees and good cheer for the most memorable of destination wedding experiences.
