"Many grooms are opting for more expensive suits, and the colour palettes being chosen reflect that. This includes warm blue tones, rustic tweeds, earthy greens and fabrics that balance a sense of fun and a contemporary style. Suit cuts for 2021 are sharp, clean and simplistic. Many people are deciding on British and Italian-cut jackets with tapered or slim-fit trousers. Accessories are also playing a large role. People are opting for pocket squares, ties and buttonholes with a pop of colour.

With more than 185 years of tailoring experience, Pritchards Menswear has worked through the decades supporting groomsmen in looking and feeling their best on their wedding day. With each passing year - and each passing wedding season - the team have had the pleasure and excitement of navigating both the nuanced and bold changes in fashion, as well as the shifts in wedding tradition that have made space for further expressionism and creativity in the age-old art of tailoring.Edward Pritchard, owner of Pritchards Menswear says, "While shifts in fashion and societal trends naturally occur over time, the last two years have dramatically challenged many of the traditional aspects of weddings, be it the size, the location, or the level of formality involved. With many cancelling, rescheduling, or downsizing their wedding celebrations, society has seemingly embraced the smaller, the hyper-personal, and the bespoke in a new and exciting way.... read more

Get expert insight into precisely what to wear, no matter your role on the day with Charles Tyrwhitt.As well as being one of the happiest days of your life, it's worth remembering that your wedding day is one of the most photographed days of your life too. There's no sense in skimping on style, and your partner won't thank you for it come the big day. The first decision to make is whether to wear morning dress or a suit. Of course, there's no right or wrong here; really it comes down to how formal you'd like to be. Morning dress brings with it a sense of occasion, and can't help but impress. A black lightweight wool tailcoat, buff or sky blue double-breasted linen waistcoat, and striped morning suit trouser are truly timeless, and will match with a shirt and tie in all manner of different colours and patterns.... read more

One of the most critical questions we ask grooms-to-be is, what do you plan to do with the suit after the big day? Often they are planning to wear it again to other weddings, so it's worth factoring this into your fabric choices. A mid- weight around 12oz will do you for most months of the year. The key to using it in the winter is texture. Hopsack and glencheck are my personal favourites and look awesome.... read more
