Let’s be honest, purchasing a wedding suit can feel like a daunting task even for the most seasoned shopper. While tuxedos are usually reserved for a black-tie wedding or a formal event, wedding suits are more versatile and can be worn to honor various types of wedding dress codes, from casual ceremonies to black-tie optional events.
A suit's silhouette, season-appropriate fabrics and colors, and extra accessories (think pocket squares, ties, and cufflinks) are all essential factors to take into consideration when picking out a wedding suit. To make life easier, we've researched and curated a selection of men’s wedding suits, considering their silhouette, color, material, and overall quality. For a tailored and classic look, our favorite options are the JOE Joseph Abboud Black Executive Fit Suit and the Ralph Lauren Gregory Wool Twill Suit. For something more light and on-trend for a spring or summer ceremony, the ASOS DESIGN Wedding Super Skinny Suit is our top pick.
If you're attending a formal wedding, look for suits in darker colors like navy, black, and charcoal. For casual weddings, you can opt for lighter colors that go with the season. For example, light blue and tan are great for summer.

JOE Joseph Abboud Black Executive Fit Suit
We love this versatile and classic black style because it will take you between formal and casual events all year long. It has an executive fit, meaning it is roomier on the chest and waist for extra comfortability. The wool material is thick enough to keep you warm during chillier weather but also quick-drying enough to work in the summertime. It features notched lapels, a two-button jacket, and side vents, which offer a fashion-forward look. This pick also includes flat-front slacks, which are trendier in nature and offer a more streamlined look. Style it with a black tie for a classic look or be bold with a colorful tie and pocket square for a more relaxed wedding.

What to look for in a wedding suit
When it comes to shopping for a wedding suit, there are a few factors to take into consideration. First, the dress code. If the wedding calls for formal attire, opt for impeccably tailored suits in classic colors like navy and black–or go for a three-piece style for a more statement-making look. For a casual dress code, opt for less structured silhouettes and forgo ties and pocket squares for a more laidback aesthetic. Next, consider the time of year. Spring and summer weddings are all about suits in lightweight fabrics like linen and cotton while fall and winter weddings call for thicker wool fabrics in deeper hues like burgundy and emerald green. And lastly, don't be afraid to showcase your personal style! There are many different ways to accessorize your wedding suit from eye-catching ties and bow ties to sleek tuxedo shoes and statement-making socks.
