When it comes to wedding suits for men, navy is a classic, elegant colour choice.
Less formal than black, and an alternative to grey, navy co-ordinates with a multitude of other colours, including pink, peach and pale blue, while also looking stunning with white, ivory, silver and gold. Let’s take a look at some stylish wedding suits, from the formal morning suit to relaxed beach wedding attire.
Starting with a true classic, the morning suit is the traditional choice of dress for the groom and his ushers. A longer jacket with trousers, waistcoat, shirt and tie, it remains timeless and elegant and is the perfect choice for a church wedding. Traditional doesn’t mean out-dated, and you can keep this look individual and stylish with a meticulously tailored suit, crisp white shirt and fabulous tie. This navy morning suit from Hackett shows how it’s done.

For an evening wedding, you might adopt a black tie dress code. In this case, you’re on the lookout for a navy dinner suit. Look no further than this navy evening suit by Marc Wallace. The black lapels mean you can wear a black bow tie.

If you’d like to remain formal but move away from the morning or evening suit, choose a three-piece lounge suit. Stick to the pristine white shirt and select a tie colour that co-ordinates with the bridesmaids. A white or ivory buttonhole is always striking.

Ready to be different? Go velvet – it’s a striking choice. Wear a navy velvet jacket with shirt and tie at a city wedding, or combine with tweed for country style. You’ll certainly make an entrance, for all the right reasons!

If you’re going for three piece, consider bringing a second colour in to the mix with your waistcoat. You might even decide to keep your waistcoat and trousers in the same colour and wear a navy jacket. Here, grey and navy are a match made in wedding Heaven.

For a formal country wedding, bring in a hint of tweed. This groom looks effortlessly stylish, and the bridesmaids would co-ordinate well in navy or burgundy red.
