Make sure your wedding suit contrasts with the bride, retailer tells grooms

A retailer has noted that grooms should make sure their wedding suit contrasts with their bride-to-be’s dress.

Bob Finnigan from Glasgow’s High & Mighty store claimed that it will look better on the day, especially in photographs, if a couple’s wedding outfit doesn’t match.

He told “Obviously quality and cut is essential, but think about the colours you choose. If your bride will be in traditional white, go for something darker so there’s a contrast for photographs – charcoal or black are classic and always look stunning.”

Mr Finnigan continued: Think about your colour scheme and choose a good match for your pocket square, waistcoat or lining so that the details compliment each other.”

Men also might want to purchase another suit that they wear to the wedding reception venue in the evening, if they don’t want to wear the same outfit as the actual ceremony. They may wish to be careful about what they do choose however, as it was revealed by this week that 40 per cent of women are embarrassed by men’s ‘scruffy looks’.

The research, which was carried out by Pot Noodle, also found that five per cent of the nation’s men never wear a suit, which means they could need extra style tips when it comes to their big day.
