Weddings, especially your own wedding present a rare occasion at which to look your dashing best. Whether you are the groom, in the wedding party, or an honoured attendee the way you dress should help mark the occasion as one to remember.

When deciding on what to wear guests should consider the setting and tone of the occasion to inform the dressing requirements of the day, a casual beach wedding requires a different approach to a traditional city wedding. Regardless of the setting, a wedding is a joyful occasion and your look should say celebration not job interview.

To separate your wedding suit from your business attire add elements of embellishment. Whether you opt for a lapel pin and colourful pocket square combination or sockless loafers, weddings are your chance to stretch the boundaries of your personal style and leave behind the confines of traditional office wear.

If you are lucky enough to be celebrating your own nuptials the occasion calls for black or white tie. A once in a lifetime celebration should be treated and dressed for as such. While the onus should always remain squarely on the bride, a groom shouldn’t overlook his sartorial responsibilities, his tuxedo should set the tone for the day and be elegant but eye catching, think 007.

The white tie tradition is alive and well. Thanks in part to prominent placement in the upcoming James Bond film, Spectre, a Tom Ford white dinner jacket is set to become the look of the season for stylish grooms. Pair a white dinner jacket with a white or black Tom Ford bow tie, black trousers and white shirt for a timeless wedding outfit endorsed by none other than her majesty’s most famous fictional spy.

THE HARROLDS VELVET DINNER JACKET PROVIDES a black tie option with an elegant point of difference. Available in our signature single-breasted French cut and finished with grosgrain lapels the Harrolds velvet dinner jacket is a versatile and stylish option appropriate to both traditional and modern black tie dressing.

For a suit like no other a Made to Measure garment cut to your specific measurements is the perfect way to make your wedding day one to remember. Harrolds offers our customers the chance to select their fabric and finishings and have a suit crafted by the tailoring house of their choice from the flawless sophistication of Tom Ford to the prestige of Brioni and Stefano Ricci.
