Burgundy wedding suits on the high street
Hiring is still a really popular option for guys at weddings and the latest hire collections are full of fantastic suits. When you hire, it means that you can try something you might not usually wear and simply return it when your wedding is over. With so many hire outlets on the high street, its also super easy to pop into your local store and try everything on so that you can be sure about your suit choice well in advance.
Moss Bros has a choice of burgundy suits available from a sharp looking lounge suit to a tuxedo that would be the best alternative to a deep blue ensemble at a black tie wedding! With Moss Bros, you can also hire everything else you need including shirts, waistcoats, cummerbunds and even bow ties.

Slaters also have a selection of burgundy wedding suits and our favourite has to be this slim fit suit that includes a waistcoat too. If you’re looking to hire your suit online, don’t just browse the wedding section – look right through the catalogue or search by colour to see the choices available.

Elsewhere on the high street, there’s plenty of burgundy to be seen and if you’re looking to buy, you’re spoilt for choice. Next has a large collection for you and this Italian wool-rich suit with a cool contrast nep texture is a brilliant and budget friendly option. House of Fraser offers a Paul Smith design and you can also find burgundy suits in Top Man and even H&M. Away from the high street, ASOS is definitely the place to head to online.
Bespoke burgundy wedding suits
If you’re treating yourself to a bespoke suit for your wedding then the world really is your oyster. For example, tailors Cad & The Dandy offer a range of bespoke suits from full handmade through to half handmade and machine made suits. This gives you plenty of choice in terms of colour, style and cost.
Alexandra Wood is all about weddings and offers made-to-measure and bespoke tailoring from Savile Row. There’s also a hire service available in Shoreditch and Hertfordshire too but the fully bespoke service really is something special. Paper patterns are cut just for you, you can choose the fabric and all the details of your suit so it’s just what you always wanted. How great is that?
Bespoke suits obviously cost more than high street and ready made versions and they usually take between three and six months to make. The process isn’t unlike buying a wedding dress and more and more stylish grooms are opting for a bespoke (burgundy!) suit for their wedding day.

Groom style for 2018
So, now you’ve chosen your burgundy wedding suit, how should you style it? Well just remember that you don’t have to go full burgundy if you don’t want to. A burgundy jacket with navy trousers is a hot look or you could team you suit with a tweed waistcoat for a more country look.
A crisp white shirt is always the perfect accessory for grooms although pale coloured shirts can also look great with burgundy. Avoid patterns though and just let the colours pop instead.
Black shoes are a classic choice (go for highly polished designs if you’re wearing an dinner jacket) but brown brogues can also work well too. Don’t be afraid to try on lots of different styles until you’re super happy the combination that you’re going to wear. Remember, your wedding day is all about you!
