Think About Location
When purchasing wedding clothes for men for a wedding it's important to consider both where the ceremony itself will be conducted and where the reception will be held. Both the style and the color of the suit will depend at least in part on this important factor, so try to answer the following questions prior to heading in for the first style session. Is the wedding going to be held outdoors or indoors? If it will be outdoors, what kind of weather can be expected? If the wedding is indoors it's always best to avoid bright or light colored suits and to go with something darker and more traditional. Outdoor weddings allow a little bit more room for creative interpretation, but the material should be chosen to accommodate the anticipated temperature and other potential weather concerns.
Consider the Bridal Party
If choosing location-appropriate custom wedding suits is important, choosing a custom tuxedo for the groom and suits for the groomsmen that compliment the bride and her bridal party is even more essential. Consult with the bride or her bridesmaid to find out what colors will be featured in the bridesmaid's dresses and what kind of accessories will be included. This can help to decide both the color of the groomsmen's suits and the style. It would be nothing short of extremely tacky to have the best man and others in the grooms party show up dressed in exactly the same colors as the bridal party, but some coordination can help to create a better overall visual impression.
It may be tempting to rent a tuxedo knowing that it is only going to be worn for one day. This would be a mistake. Although no future groom wants to overshadow his bride, his tuxedo should at the very least be custom fitted and chosen to compliment the rest of the wedding party. Although the tuxedo will likely only be worn for one day, it is one very important day. Treat it accordingly.
