If you're a groom with style (and especially if you're a groom without style), you'll be looking for inspiration for what to wear on your wedding day. Will you hire…

Styling a modern suit for your wedding is not just a case of adding a buttonhole. The shape, colours, accessories and indeed type of suit you choose all make a statement; make sure it’s the right statement.
If you’re looking for inspiration on how to style a suit for your wedding, King and Allen Bespoke Suits advise:
1. Make sure it doesn’t look like a suit you would wear for work, so as a rule you should avoid pin-stripes and three buttons.
2. Remember your suit should set you apart from your guests and also from your groomsmen, so consider a three piece, one button or peak lapel.
3. Seek professional advice on the perfect suit for your personal requirements, for instance if you want something modern, consider a fitted jacket with narrow notch lapels and tapered trousers.
4. Consider your body shape – go for a slightly shorter jacket length if you want to appear taller, or a lower button position if you want to appear slimmer.
How you style your suit also includes whether you intend to wear a waistcoat and tie and what styles, fabrics and colours you choose.
The beauty of having a bespoke suit made is you can have it created in your own style and taste with personalised additions to make it completely unique. You might want to wear a pale blue checked suit in a 1960s style with a contrasting satin lining and matching handkerchief.
Almost anything is possible when you have a bespoke suit made to your requirements; you can even have your wedding date embroidered on the inside of your jacket.
