Things to consider when buying your wedding suit

When it comes to choosing a suit for your big day, there’s a lot to consider. Weather, dress-code, venue, groomsmen suits - the list goes on. And while for some this is a process to be savoured, we recognise that it can err towards the overwhelming for others.

That’s where we come in.

Here, we provide a no-nonsense checklist of the key points to cover off when searching for your wedding suit that will help ensure you don’t miss a trick.


We’re all about starting with the basics and for a wedding, it doesn’t get much easier than identifying the dress-code. This is an easy way to start refining the options on hand to something more manageable.

For example, if you’re opting for a black-tie dress-code, you’re probably going to be in the market for a dinner suit. Similarly, if you’re going for a slightly more relaxed cocktail look, you’ll likely be on the hunt for a lounge suit.


While this might feel like a strange criteria to consider, knowing what season you’ll be tying the knot in plays a major role when choosing the fabrication of your suit. At Oscar Hunt, we want to make sure you both look and feel great. And that means choosing a cloth that’s going to keep you cool in Summer and warm in Winter.


Our team of expert fitters has seen it all when it comes to crafting the ideal wedding suits for men, from beach-side elopements to 400 person extravaganzas at some of the country’s landmark establishments. When you’re in the initial stages of deciding what your ensemble’s going to be, sharing the venue can help add an element of nuance to the process and tighten the brief. By way of example, it might be that the tuxedo you wear for a beach wedding is different to that which you wear for a more urbane event.  

Groomsmen suits

Finally, you need to consider what the rest of the wedding party is going to be wearing. If you’re looking to stand out from the pack, you may want to consider how your suit can be differentiated from those of your groomsmen through elements like colour or different stylistic touches.
