Suit and tie? Maybe. But these days, it goes
beyond picking up a suit (any colour) with
perhaps, any tie and shoes to go with it.
It is very important to first "think" and
"understand", and probably, know the
"reason" for choosing any colour or set of
colours. It is not surprising that generally,
men do not have preferences for colours;
women no doubt, have better understanding
of colours and what to do with them. This is
not a rule or tradition, but overtime the
feeling has been more or less like "men
don't care much about colours, when it
comes to choosing wedding outfits."
However, men who are always at the top of their games, know that not 'any' colour of suit (including other contingencies) is good enough for a special occasion like a wedding. Therefore, proper care must be taken in making sure that the combinations are a great "match".
Today's fashion and style have gone highly sophisticated, such that not even buying an expensive suit gets you "thumbs up" from the observers and admirers alike; if the combination does not pass "fitting" and "styling" tests. The world is no longer "moved" by a mere fact that your outfit is good; it has to be elegant and classy for you to even get noticed. You cannot claim to be modern and contemporary if your ways of dressing and styling are those of ancient and medieval times. First thing is that whatever you agree to put on, it must be because you are very "comfortable" with it, and not because some people want you to look that way, if not, a very awkward moment is on the cards.
Often times men neglect or possibly forget their skin colours (and physiques) when choosing their wedding outfits. If you are very dark, how suitable is it for you to wear a black suit and maybe with a white shirt (inside)? You are likely to end looking more like an already-tired legal practitioner than the groom on a wedding day. It is imperative to consider your skin colour when choosing what goes with what for your wedding outfits. You can even start a "revolution" by coming up with a combination that is uncommon, but full of class and elegance. The modern trends don't focus much on suit and its colours, but a combination of different materials (the trousers and jackets being of different colour); creatively and neatly matched together, to produce something that is not just admirable, but also a testament to one's ingenuity and concepts. The most important man on the wedding day is the groom, therefore your outfit must take its position of prominence, thereby making everything "connect" fully with the expectations and the excitements of the day.
Thinking of choosing a wedding outfits? Think harder, consult the experts, it never hurts to err on the side of caution. Next time we continue with the wedding outfits, from the bride's angle.
