Grooms – don’t forget to enjoy your special moments as you approach your wedding day! Picking out your elopement day attire can and should be an exciting activity. Whether you choose to bring friends or family members with you or to shop with your partner, make a fun day of it! And most importantly, make sure your elopement suit feels authentic to you and the wedding you’re planning!
What do you picture when you think of a wedding suit? Probably all black or charcoal grey. Maybe even a tuxedo. When you chose to elope, you decided to throw tradition out the window – and that’s true of what you wear too! If you feel your best in a leather jacket and corduroy pants, that’s what you should get married in! While you should try to match the formality of your partner, you don’t have to stick to traditional materials, cuts, or fabrics for your suit. And if a traditional suit is more your style, go for it! You can spice up a traditional suit with fun liners, ties, or pocket squares.
When you clothes shop for your big day, you should have a rough idea of what climate your elopement will be in and what activities you plan on doing. When trying on pieces, put them to the test to see if they’ll be a good option! If you’re hiking on your elopement, you’ll want to make sure you can take big steps, bend down, and reach up comfortably. If you are eloping somewhere cold, maybe consider having space for a thermal layer under your suit. And don’t forget about the heat! If you’re eloping somewhere tropical loose light layers are the best option.
