Whether you’re hiring or having custom made suits for the boys, you should think about this relatively early on in your planning process. Bespoke suits are all the rage nowadays as they are so personal and can be used after the wedding day.

A popular choice for a formal wedding, this traditionally consists of grey striped trousers, a black, grey or navy single-breasted tailcoat, wing collar shirt, waistcoat, silk tie or cravat and sometimes a top hat.
Quite a flamboyant look, these can be plain, patterned brocade, velvet or silk. These generally reach down to mid-thigh and are worn with a standard or Nehru-style collar.
