Looking for the perfect formalwear fit for your special day? Whether you're aiming to keep things cool and casual, clean and classic, or to spice it up with some fun patterns, textures, or colors, we're here to provide you with all the inspiration for your wedding day fashion. Sprinkled with some of our best expert tips, we have everything you need to show up on your big day with flair and finesse. Dive into all the details below!

Whether renting or buying elements of your wedding day attire, let your personality shine! Bring inspiration to your appointment with your formalwear expert, who will help pull styles together that match your taste, complement your partner's look, and coordinate with the overall vibe of the event. Also, consider formality, location, and weather when selecting your day-of apparel. Find a reliable shop and remember the power of tailoring to get the perfect, flattering fit for you!

There are no rules when it comes to colors; however, darker colors like black, dark gray, and navy tend to be more popular for evening or formal events, while colors such as tan, light gray, and dusty blue can soften the tone for a daytime or more casual celebration. Want to be adventurous? Make a statement with a bold jacket, or rock a full-color suit in a unique color! Whatever you decide, keep in mind your wedding day's look, feel, and color palette.

Spice up your formalwear selection with a floral pattern, pinstripes, or checks! Unique textures like velvet, linen, wool, or corduroy may also subtly elevate your style and give your look an extra element of depth and surprise. Remember, again, the vibe of your day, other wedding members' apparel, and, of course, the season, to pick the perfect material that won't leave you too hot or cold.

Don't forget to accessorize! Consider adding some of these accessories listed below to elevate and polish your overall look for the day:

  • Necktie
  • Bow Tie
  • Ascot
  • Western Bolo
  • Suspenders
  • Belt
  • Vest
  • Cummerbund

  • Pocket Square
  • Cuff Links
