HOW CAN MY FI­ANCÉ IN­COR­PO­RATE PRINTS AND COLOURS INTO HIS SUIT WITH­OUT IT CLASH­ING WITH MY GOWN?

As long as ba­sic menswear eti­quette is met, the de­signs of wed­ding suits are only lim­ited by

the groom’s imag­i­na­tion. By play­ing with suit colours and prints, he can stand out while com­ple­ment­ing the bride’s gown at the same time. Stick­ing to the theme is the best way to en­sure that the groom’s suit does not stick out like a sore thumb. If the wed­ding gown is not too for­mal, he can af­ford to play with pat­terns and de­tails. Quirky but­tons can re­flect his fun-lov­ing na­ture, and prints (flo­rals, for ex­am­ple) can be in­fused into the vest or shirt if he is more flam­boy­ant. For some­thing more sub­tle, imag­i­na­tive stitch work can ren­der a suit dif­fer­ent, but qui­etly con­fi­dent. There is also the op­tion of us­ing bold colours, such as red, for the en­tire suit. The most im­por­tant thing to note is that a wed­ding suit must be well fit­ted to make the groom look crisp, sharp and con­fi­dent.
