Your wedding photos are a memento to last a lifetime, so it is important that you look and feel your best. You wouldn’t want to look back in years to come and wonder why on earth you chose groomswear with a garish colour or busy pattern. Nothing works better or is more satisfying than a timeless, classic suit.
A waistcoat can transform a simple wedding suit into something more interesting with minimal effort, whilst maintaining a classy appearance. A waistcoat will not only add a splash of colour and character to your suit, if you so wish, but it will also allow you to remove your jacket if the heat of a crowded wedding venue gets too much, whilst still upholding formality.
Waistcoat Styles and Patterns
If you choose to opt for a more traditional style of waistcoat, grey or black regular or double breasted styles would be suitable. These colours complement most typical wedding suit colours and allow you to add your own personal touch with your cravat or tie.
However, if you would prefer something less plain, a fine pinstripe, pinhead or subtle floral style embroidery in a nice shade would work just as well.
Be cautious when choosing your wedding waistcoat, as the quality and type of material can tarnish the image you want to achieve. Opt for silk, satin or a woollen blend to complete your timeless wedding day look.
