J. Hilburn offers a fantastic custom-made wedding tuxedo with your individual choices of fabric and color.
And it’s not just about tuxedos, look at this perfect suit combination for a fall wedding, complete with overcoat for outside photo opps!
Is your groom’s style a little bit on the casual-relaxed side?
Real Wedding Planner Advice: Bridge his casual-relaxed style with traditional wedding elegance to make Casual Wedding Chic! This beautiful black suit works great for fall and winter weddings! Choosing the wine-colored plaid shirt and adding the bow-tie really gives this groomsmen’s style a unique look and works well for an indoor or outdoor wedding.
Back to tuxedos for a moment, this custom fabric was chosen to change up the look of this beautiful formal wedding. Keeping the shirt, tie, and pocket square in flat, traditional fabrics allows for the use of the textured fabric in the suiting and the detail work on the jacket pockets.
Adding a luxurious overcoat for your Groom will pay off in the fall and winter wedding photos.
And what a beautiful wedding gift for your Groom!
You can really change up the look by choosing patterned fabrics for your groomsmen’s shirts.
Having custom-made shirts for your groomsmen is such a thoughtful bridal party gift!
And what a fantastic line of neckware they carry at J. Hilburn as well… talk about 1 stop shopping for your Groom and his Groomsmen! Also a very thoughtful gift for the guys, a beautiful tie to be worn first at your wedding, but then to have as a keepsake afterwards as well.
Don’t feel like having your groomsmen in tuxedos?
Real Wedding Planner Advice: You can have custom suits made and they will satisfy even the most particular groomsmen style and look.
Choosing a suit in a dark charcoal is a wonderful choice for any wedding. Select a traditional white fabric for your groomsmen’s shirt to keep the look traditional, and elevate the look with a solid color tie or a pattern on pattern fabric.
You can really change your Groomsmen’s look by just changing up the accessories as illustrated above.
Don’t be afraid of going lighter either! This double-breasted suit is very appropriate for any wedding! Remember, it’s all in the fit as you can see in all of these J. Hilburn examples. The fit of your Groom & Groomsmen’s suits are what makes them work for any style wedding.
Love pattern but maybe your Groom is a little wary of it?
Real Wedding Planner Advice: Make it a subtle pattern as in above and coordinate your Groom’s tie with the color of your bridesmaid dresses to “tie” everything together nicely!
Changing the color a bit towards into the brown palette makes this J. Hilburn suit perfect for Fall!
If you don’t want to go full on Rustic-Vintage, choose a fabric with a subtle contemporary pattern.
Keeping the shirt, tie, and accessories in solid colors makes your groomsmen’s style more traditional. Adding the bow-tie and keeping the shirt and pocket square in traditional white allows for a little extra pop of color in the pattern in the suit fabric without overwhelming the eye.
And don’t be afraid of using lighter colored fabric for your Groomsmen’s suits.
What a great look for an outdoor summer wedding!
Mini-check! What a fantastic choice for a Fall wedding!!
Choosing your Groomsmen’s suit in this fabric gives an automatic feel of country elegance, and works for Rustic-Vintage as well!
Don’t be afraid of mixing fabrics and colors either with your Groomsmen’s suits and accessories.
Budget-minded brides and grooms know that asking your bridal party to be in your wedding is a big expense.
Real Wedding Planner Advice: Try having a beautiful sport-coat made for your groomsmen to cut the cost for them. It will be a wonderful gift from you and a piece of their wardrobe that they will cherish for years to come.
Love this look! Mixing patterns, fabrics, and colors works beautifully and easily using J. Hilburn for your custom Groomsmen suit choice. Your J. Hilburn Stylist can help you pair fabrics easily with their swatch books during your appointment.
No matter what style of suit you choose, J. Hilburn can help you… and make your Groomsmen look their very best.
Remember, it’s all about the fit and choosing the right fabrics.
Real Wedding Planners at Lisa Sammons Events always recommend purchasing suits for your Groom and Groomsmen rather than renting. It’s a piece of wardrobe that every man needs in their closet, and will be worn over and over again.
Worried about how much it will cost?
Real Wedding Planner Advice: Pick the suits and fabrics you want for your Groomsmen. Then, depending on what level of budget you have, chip in towards each suit for your groomsmen to lighten the financial burden for them.
If you really have to go for the rental suit, then order custom shirts and ties for their bridal party gift to be worn at your wedding. This way you are sharing the finances with your bridal party. Giving them their suit, shirt, tie, or pocket square as their thank you gift for being in your wedding serves a dual purpose and look at that…. you just crossed 2 more items off your wedding to-do list!!
