Classic colours

You can’t go wrong with a classic black, navy blue or charcoal three-piece suit. This is a popular choice for weddings back home and in destination. Pair your classic suit with a matching vest, crisp white shirt and elegantly knotted tie or lose the tie altogether and opt for just a button-up underneath. We also love incorporating your wedding’s colour scheme into the pocket squares or ties!

Laidback vibes

Seeking a casual look for your wedding attire? You can opt for more laidback looks for your beach wedding including khaki shorts, suspenders instead of a jacket, bowties instead of a traditional Windsor or light-coloured suit pants without the jacket. To distinguish yourself from your groomsmen, you can opt to wear suspenders while the rest of your groomsmen go with plain button-ups.

Fashion-forward

If you’re all about the latest trends, don’t hold back on your wedding day – choose a fashion-forward outfit that reflects your personal style. Go for an elegant white suit jacket with black lapels and black pants, carry on the tropical theme with a floral printed suit or add just a touch of flair with printed pocket squares and trendy shoes. If you’ll be going for a fashion-forward look, we recommend keeping things simple for your groomsmen’s attire.

Make a statement

Go bold with your wedding day look by choosing a vibrantly coloured suit. We love emerald greens, baby blues and bold reds – just make sure to pair it with a more neutral shirt underneath. If you don’t want to commit to the entire suit, you can select a classic-coloured suit and pair it with a bold shirt or tie underneath.
