Destination wedding are becoming more and more popular. After the covid restrictions were lifted I think we all wanted to travel somewhere far away from home . Many of our Brides and Grooms have found that a destination wedding is the perfect way to get away from it all with your close family and friends. Some choosing weddings abroad to guarantee wonderful warm weather and the feel of sand between your toes. Others just for that perfect setting or return to a sentimental or romantic place.
Having a wedding abroad is a great idea if you want to have a total change of scenery with close friends and family. It is also really popular with couples with young children too. That way they can combine both their wedding, honeymoon and holiday in to one.
Below are a few examples of some of our couples who chose to have a destination wedding. From elegant villas in Italy to the beaches of the Caribbean and Mauritius our suits have been worn by many Grooms in lots of different places for their destination wedding event.
Hire destination wedding suits
Our hire suits have been a feature in many a beach wedding abroad. I think the photographs above prove you don't have to wear a light coloured suit for your destination wedding. The contrast of a dark colour suit can look just as effective. Classic navy lounge suits, steel blue suits, royal blue dinner suits they all look just as smart at a beach wedding as they do in the UK. We always try to encourage our hire Groom's to make themselves look different from their Ushers in some way. In Mr Fox's wedding you can see they all wore scoop style waistcoats. With Mr Fox wearing an Ascot grey and his Groomsmen in matching. Mr Budden opted for all Ascot grey waistcoats but he wore a scoop DB style and his entourage wore a classic SB.
Made-to-measure dinner suits
A dinner suit looks so elegant the world over. Here some of our many made-to-measure Grooms wearing them at their destination weddings. From Mr Deeks rocking his cream dinner suit in the sun, to Kez on the beach in gunmetal grey to Mr Willmott in, what was probably not so warm, Ireland. A dinner suit works everywhere.
Blue made-to-measure lounge suits
Blue, whatever the shade, is the most popular colour choice for Groom's wedding suits at the moment. From soft sky blue and powder blues, to bright royal blues and classic navy. Worn with a contrast waistcoat, matching waistcoat or, with some of the high fashion double breasted styles, no waistcoat at all. The joy of a full made-to-measure suit for your destination wedding is that you can pick the weight of the fabric as well as the colour and style (plus many other things). So you can remain cool, calm and collected in the heat of the sun (even if it is just on the outside!).
Something a bit different for you destination wedding?
As Mr Barrett came to see our made-to-measure team as he wanted something a bit different for his destination wedding in Scotland. He wanted a statement suit, with an element of Scotland but not a kilt. He had been advised on a colour scheme for the wedding but didn't know where to start. Iain in our Billericay store spent a lot of time discussing various ideas and suggestions and between him & Mr Barrett they came up with his perfect wedding suit.
For Gary's wedding in Mauritius he wanted a green light weight suit that looked smart and elegant but would work at his beach wedding. Once again I think the made-to-measure teamed nailed it in the photo above. As you can also see (from our cover shot to this blog) the shade of green looked amazing as he and his new Bride walked between the palm trees after their ceremony.
Mr Norton wanted a light colour suit for his beach wedding. After learning the time of day of the ceremony I think between him & our MTM team he chose the right light colour. The softness of the colour against the soft sandy beach worked perfectly.
For his wedding abroad Mr Montgomery chose to have green made-to-measure shorts for himself & his Groomsmen. Didn't they all look amazing in the sunshine.
