There are not many moments more magical nor memorable than saying “yes” to the person that means the world to you. Saying “yes” to spending a lifetime together, traveling the world, and raising children. Nothing more beautiful nor more meaningful.
However, we all know how stressful planning a wedding can be. Months and months of preparation, all for one day. Choosing the place, inviting the guests, flower arrangements, cake tasting, and a number of other things and obligations. Truly we can say that it is a never-ending list.
Somewhere along the road, the time will come, when the bride will have to choose her dress, and accordingly, you will have to choose your suit. Commonly, there is a lot of fuss going on about the type of dress that the bride is about to wear. Is it a mermaids cut dress, or a ball gown?
Well, lately, rightfully we can say that the times are changing and more and more man are choosing their suits months ahead too. Devotion to details, tailoring, customizing, number of fittings, and even sawing a suit from scratch.
Everything, literally everything can be done in order to satisfy your needs!
Start Planning Your Wedding Day Look
The wedding day is certainly one of the most special days in a lifetime and looking flawless is a must. Rather than blending in with the other guests you need to stand out from the crowd and wear a truly extraordinary suit. This is the main reason why you should start early on planning your wedding day look. Not only because it is indeed important but because there is nothing more stressful when doing things in a rush.
Imagine adding the “clothing worries” on top of everything when the wedding starts approaching. It is a recipe for disaster.
Instead, you need to make a stop in Blaine`s in Montgomery, Ohio where you can find a variety of fine men’s suits for your special day. Not only we have a huge selection of suits manufactured from the finest materials with the perfect cut, but we also have committed, friendly, and professionally educated employees with a sharp eye for details.
Our team will guide you through the entire process of choosing the perfect suit and offer you a number of other options such as a customized suit that will be made according to your measurements. However, you should know that these things take quite the time to be done, the sooner the better-have that in mind.
Make Your Best Impression Yet
As we already mentioned, lately we are noticing that men too are following the latest trends in fashion. So, why shouldn’t you too? It was about time to go to a store and have just the same options as women and more. Take advantage of the modern era and look stunning on your special day.
Brides go through the entire painstaking process of choosing not only one but even more than one dress just to impress her future husband. Choosing, customizing, fitting, and alternating. Why shouldn’t you too? Dress to impress your bride! Take her breath away when she sees you standing at the altar, waiting for her. This sight will become one of the dearest and most meaningful memories! Something she will always remember!
However, choosing what to wear when you have a number of options can be a rather hard decision to be made. One thing is for sure, always aim to stay true to yourself even when preparing for your wedding day. If you do purchase something just for the sake of it, to look stylish and formal, without “feeling it” you’ll end up feeling uncomfortable the entire day. Although it might not seem like a huge thing right now, trust us when we say it - the way you feel always reflects on the way you look.
In order to help you with making the right decisions, we`ve narrowed your selection down to three types of suits: The Tuxedo, The Suit, and the Sport Coat.
When we are talking ultimate elegance and formality in the wedding attire, then we must say that the highest spot is held by The Tuxedo. The tuxedo radiates with timeless sophistication. Usually, if you are planning super formal and evening wedding with a black dress code in a fancy restaurant, then tuxedo is the right choice. Tuxedos have recognizable satin lapels on the jacket and satin stripes on the pants (down the sides) and are traditionally worn with bow ties and a formal tuxedo shirt with a Wing Tip Collar.
Wearing a suit rather than a tuxedo is a more commonly seen option among grooms. It`s not only a less formal option but it is also a more affordable one. The first thing you need to think about when purchasing a suit is that it must be chosen according to your wedding in terms of the style. You might have a wedding color scheme, theme and a dress code and according to this your suit should be matching. Additionally, you must think about the season too. Is it a spring/summer or maybe winter wedding? If its summer you can go with more light fabric and pastel tones, and it it`s in winter you can go with darker and deeper tones. Next thing you need to pay attention to is the way your suit fits you. The flawless cut will enhance and improve your body shape.
If you are willing to spend quite an amount of money on your suit you might consider purchasing bespoke wedding suit. This only means that you will get your suit made from scratch. Yes, that`s right. According to your very own personal measurements, a tailor will create a suit specifically for you. This way you get to choose all the colors, patterns, and ultimately the cut which probably is the single most important thing in a suit.
With this in mind, be prepared to pay as much as for a wedding dress because this time you are not only paying for the suit but also the time and painstaking work of the tailor and for the entire experience of sitting down with a glass of whiskey in your hand to choose materials, colors, and patterns.
A more affordable option than the bespoke suit is the Made-to-Measure Suit. This means that your suit won`t be made from scratch but instead, it will be made based on a previous suit pattern but it will be customized according to your body measurements. As we previously said, the fit is literally everything, especially on such special occasions such as your wedding day.
Last but not least, as an option, we can advise you to purchase an off the rack suit from a store and tailor it according to your measurements. This is also a great option when you want to literally see the finished product instead of waiting weeks or maybe even months to see your suit. This way you can forget about the uncertainty of how things will fall together in place, or how the materials will turn out together. This way you only need a professional tailor that knows its job. He/she will make your suit fit you like a glove.
The Sport Coat
The men’s sport coat is the least formal wear for a wedding. However, that doesn’t make it less appealing nor modern. Depends on how you’ve envisioned your wedding day, a sport coat can be just the right choice.
If your wedding day is on the beach where you first met among your closest friends and family and when clothing is the last thing you want to put an accent to, then the sport coat is just the thing you’ve been looking for. It is considered as a casual attire and yet it is chic and stylish.
Additionally, when purchasing a tuxedo you can only wear it on your wedding and maybe in some special event such as some gala, but happily, we can say that that is not the case for the sport coat. After celebrating your wedding day, the sport coat can be worn in a countless number of occasions and events. Pair with jeans, or maybe with some chinos. Pair it with sneakers or casual men’s shoes. And you are good to go!
Before purchasing any of these three options, first and foremost you need to think about the vision behind the entire wedding. Is it a romantic? Or maybe elegant and formal? How do you want to look beside your bride? What type of dress is she wearing? Give it a thought. When and where is the wedding? Literally everything has a small impact on the way that you need to dress.
After all, the last thing you want to do is look as you don’t belong at your own wedding.
When you do know everything that we spoke about, I encourage you to visit Blaine’s. You will be amazed by our wide selection of formal and casual suits.

Find Your Groomsmen’s Suits
After you have found what you are about to wear, the next important thing is to take care of your groomsmen. There is nothing better than to have your very own personalized squad. Rather than being a boring experience of taking measurements and simply ordering a number of suits, you can make the whole thing memorable even for your groomsmen.
Organize a visit with all of your groomsmen to a store such as Blaine’s where each of them can try out a different outfit and then you can all choose together. You can spice the whole thing up by throwing in some whiskey or scotch in the mix.
However, don’t get carried away, you must focus on the theme of the wedding. Aim for the color of their suits to be matching with the color scheme. You should watch out not only for the colors but you should carefully order the proper sizing as well.
