Top men’s wedding trends you’ll be seeing in 2024
Wedding ceremonies held one day. Reception and post-nuptial parties the next. No groomsmen uniform. More thematic dress code than just a strict black-tie. Now more than ever, weddings are the least bit traditional. And, POLITIX is here to help you stay on the top of it all and make your wedding day your most special yet. Here are the wedding trends you’ll be seeing in 2024.
For the groom
At the end of the day, you know what you like and you know yourself best. But if you want to take your wedding style to the next level, one way to make a statement is to go bold or bright. Whether you focus on the details via a tuxedo jacket with a unique jacquard design or channel the vibrant energy of the day with a red velvet suit, you’re sure to stand out.
If you want to err towards modern and toned-down styling, we suggest going for a neutral suit tailored to perfection. You can book in-store for your complimentary wedding styling session and have your suit tailored with one of or experts.
Another trend we’re seeing is a relaxed approach to dress codes. More often, we’re seeing grooms choosing comfort suits (like more relaxed silhouettes). We recommend our breathable wool suits in Steel Blue or Camel.
For the groomsmen
For the longest time, the groomsmen blend in with the crowd and look like a copy and paste of each other. The same suit style with the same colour for different body types and personalities. The groomsmen almost seem like an afterthought. Your closest and dearest mates need to complement you. A wedding trend we’ve been seeing is that there is not one particular suit for the groomsmen. In this way, their personalities and differences can still shine through their attire details. We have various lapel pins that make the perfect gift for your groomsmen.
For the guests
Attending as a wedding guest can be a little tricky when it comes to figuring out an outfit. The trend for 2024 and not just for wedding styling is to stick to tonal palettes. Tonal looks add sophistication and an instant put-togetherness to a look. Opt for our Light forest suit or Slate blue suit and match it back with our tonal shirts.
If you’re going to a summer wedding, we have a range of linen suits that match any mood. We suggest our double-breasted linen tailored jacket paired with our pleated Gurkha tailored pant in Ink.
You’re now prepped with all the wedding trend knowledge of 2024. If there’s one take away from all of this, weddings are no longer bound within traditional constraints but welcome individuality and creativity. Say “I do” to a wedding attire, whether you’re the groom, groomsmen or guest, that reflects you.
Do the Groom and Groomsmen Match?
As mentioned, modern weddings feature the groom and groomsmen embracing individuality while still all having a cohesive look. A popular trend is opting for the same colour palette rather than identical suits. This allows each member to express their style while contributing to the specific wedding aesthetic. Modern couples are leaning towards a mix-and-match approach, incorporating different shades and a wide range of suit styles within a specific colour palette.
What Wedding Suit to Wear by Season?
What season the wedding lands on is a big factor to consider when figuring out your wedding attire. For spring and summer weddings, couples are favouring lighter fabrics and brighter tones. Breathable fabrications like linen or wool suits are popular choices. Fall and winter weddings call for richer, darker tones and heavier fabrics such as velvet to achieve a sophisticated look.
What Suit to Wear to a Summer Wedding?
Summer weddings have its own set of challenges and opportunities for sartorial choices. Lighter colours like lilacs and soft blues are on the rise, reflecting the season's vibrancy. Opting for breathable fabrics like cotton, ensures both style and comfort under the sun. Couples are also exploring more casual suit options, such as tailored blazers paired with dress pants.
