Choosing the right summer wedding suit is as critical as applying sunscreen at the beach. One wrong move and you’ll end up feeling the heat. Leave all the pressure and stress of finding the right suit behind with The Modern Groom.
No more worrying about jackets versus vests or tan versus black. We’ve got the ultimate guide to selecting the right summer wedding suit for grooms that won’t leave you feeling hot and bothered on the big day.
Don’t Sweat It!
Listen, we know wearing a suit in the middle of a hot summer day sounds as appealing as clearing out the garage in a parka. But overheating does not have to be on your official itinerary. Take stock of your venue, the time of your ceremony, and the average temperatures for the month you are getting married to determine the best summer wedding suit option for you and your groomsmen.
We only offer three-piece suits (so that you’ll have three items to wear again and again!). If you’re worried about getting sweaty, consider dressing up for the photos in the full ensemble and removing the jacket for the dance floor after. You’ll still look like the groom you’re meant to be in the vest-pant combo. Every summer wedding suit for grooms at The Modern Groom comes complete with both a vest and jacket so you have the choice of what to wear.
It’s All About the Colors
Your fiancé will back us up: When it comes to planning, it’s all about the color scheme. To seamlessly blend in with the vision, be sure to choose a summer wedding suit that will complement, if not outright match, the theme.
If your color scheme is still TBD, we recommend embracing the sunshine of the season. Go with light colors! Tan is trend-forward, while neutral enough to withstand the test of time. Light grey matches almost every theme and serves as a great backdrop for a bright accent color.
When in doubt, give the stylist a shout. Our online consultations will help you pick the right color to complement the color scheme and vibe you are trying to achieve. We even do all the heavy lifting (lucky you!) by offering ties, socks, and belts right alongside our summer wedding suits for grooms.
Suit ‘Em Up
You and your fiancé may be the stars of the show, but your supporting cast is just as important to the whole picture. While the traditional route is to have the groomsmen in the same color as you, this is your day and your choice!
Consider choosing a different-colored summer wedding suit than the rest of your party to boldly stand out from the pack. Or, if subtlety is more your style, try dressing them up with different colored accessories like ties or pocket squares so you are sure to stand out.
For summer weddings in particular, try mixing up the wedding party look with differing socks or cufflinks. This adds flair to your wedding day without looking gimmicky.
Be Ready—Rain or Shine
By the time the wedding day finally rolls around, you’ll already be dreaming of your honeymoon getaway. The hardest planning pieces may be done, but don’t forget to check the weather when the big day arrives! While summer is generally known for its more predictable weather, unexpected wind or thunderstorms are not out of the question.
If the day looks windy, be sure to wear your vest and suit coat buttoned to minimize distracting flapping, but don’t forget to always leave the bottom button unbuttoned! If wearing ties, add a tie clip to keep it in place during pictures, the reception, and the ceremony.
If thunderclouds are rolling in (don’t worry, rain on your wedding day is good luck), bring an oversized overcoat you can easily pull on and off to protect your suit in between events. You may also want to bring umbrellas for your groomsmen to protect their suits as well.
