best wedding suits for menYou open your mailbox and what do you see? A big envelope that looks hand decorated or finely printed and it isn’t a credit card bill. It’s another wedding invitation and that means picking out a suit to wear for the big day.

Or maybe you’re the one sending out those wedding invitations with your soon-to-be spouse and all eyes are going to be on you when it’s time to say I do.

For many men about to get married, planning what to wear for a wedding can be a pretty stressful task.

Whether you’re going to be attending a wedding this year or you’re going to be getting married, you’re going to want to pick a suit that looks great on you and is also stylish.

That’s why we’ve put together this list of the best wedding suits for men for 2015.

Use it wisely and you’ll be the best dressed man at the wedding whether you’re the one standing under the altar or going back for a second piece of cake.

Blue, Blue and More Blue

A blue suit isn’t always appropriate at a wedding, especially if you’re going to an event you know is going to be particularly formal or if you were asked to dress in black tie.

However, any wedding that isn’t extremely formal is one where you can wear a blue suit and you’ll likely see a lot of them at weddings in 2015 because the color is so hot right now.

When it comes to picking out your blue, you’ll really need to choose based on the wedding and your lifestyle. For very formal events, you want a dark blue suit or one with a bit of charcoal mixed in.

For less formal events, high blue, which is sometimes called pure blue, really is the color of the season. If you choose high blue, you’ll have a suit you can wear pretty much everywhere for at least the next few years.

While those pure blue colors are extremely popular right now, you’re never going to feel out of place in a good navy blue suit. If you don’t have a full wardrobe right now, that’s a good place to start.

Buy a quality piece that you’ll be able to wear for years and years if you’re choosing a navy blue suit.

Tuxedos are Tops

If you need a formal suit, tuxedos are some of the best wedding suits for men that you’ll ever come across.

However, if you want to go ahead and buy a tuxedo, you do need to make sure that you’re going to a formal event. That doesn’t mean black tie in every case, but you’ll at least want a request of cocktail attire or formal attire.

Unless you’re going to a black tie wedding, you may actually be able to get away with something a little more unique when it comes to tuxedos, which are actually really popular and all over the place in 2015.

For example, very colorful bowties can make your tuxedo look a whole lot less formal and more like you’re ready for a party instead of a stuffy event at a banquet hall.

Shine More Than Your Shoes

The best wedding suits for men have traditionally been ones that are understated. In 2015 though, understated suits aren’t exactly what’s selling and they aren’t what you’ll see on the runways of Paris or Milan.

Instead, you’re going to see a lot of men’s suits that have a lot of shine to them and really stand out from the crowd. The almost-reflective suits you’ll see on the runway this year are quite refined though, so they’re not going to make you look like a 1980’s bookie or an extra from the film Casino.

Wear your shiny suit with confidence and know that they’re truly in style right now. They may not seem like the best wedding suits for men, but they’ll work this year and you’ll get a lot of wear out of one, especially if you wear suits every day or like to hit the town in a suit.

Think Double Breasted

Double breasted suits seemed extremely unpopular two or three years ago. In fact, if you saw anybody in a double breasted suit at a wedding you were probably snickering behind their back at how out of touch they were with what was fashionable.

In 2015 though, double breasted suits are starting to make a comeback. If you can pull one off with your body type – they’re generally not the best for really small guys – you might want to consider going for one.

If you do choose a double breasted suit, make sure the color fits the current trends. You’re just a little ahead of your time too, so don’t feel too bad if you get a funny look from somebody. They’ll realize you were ahead of the trend sometime in early 2016.

Go Plaid or Go Home

Plaid may not seem like the right print if you want one of the best wedding suits for men. However, plaid is very stylish in 2015 and you probably won’t look out of place wearing it at a wedding that doesn’t require particularly formal attire.

If you’re looking for a plaid suit that you can wear to a wedding, one of the best options is a suit that has a dark or high blue base with green or red mixed in to form the plaid pattern.

From there, you’ll be able to dress your suit up or down based on the occasion with the type of tie and accessories that you wear.

Buying a plaid suit will also make sure you have something stylish to wear the rest of the year since plaid really is one of the hottest patterns around right now and it has been for a while. It’s likely to remain very popular for the next few years as well.

What About Brands?

When you go to a wedding, most people aren’t going to be asking you who designed your suit, even if you’re the groom. It isn’t a red carpet event, so you don’t always have to buy a suit that’s got a designer label on the inside.

However, you are going to want to buy a well-made suit that you can wear for more than one wedding.

After all, what’s the point of spending a few hundred bucks on a suit you’ll only wear once when you could put that money toward something that can be part of your wardrobe throughout the years to come?

Some of the best wedding suits for men are made by designers like Canali, Brioni, Hickey Freeman and John Varvatos.

There are certainly others out that there you can find at fine menswear stores like Sal Lauretta for Men, so focus on finding a suit that’s perfect for the wedding you’re having or attending but is also perfect for the rest of the year.
