A better match
Q. We've had to postpone our summer wedding, which is now a winter wedding, and we're trying to embrace this change. The attire for our groomsmen now needs to change; what do you suggest we go for?
A. Carolyn Cook says: Carolyn says: Winter weddings benefit from strong colours; oranges, greens, purples, reds, burgundies and golds are always a good choice for a wedding at this time of year. Tweed suits or dark suits with tweed waistcoats also complement these colours very well and are a good way to achieve a rich winter look.
If you don't want to change your colour theme winter is traditionally the wedding season of choice to wear a dinner suit, in which case you can just wear a black bow tie and incorporate your colour through your buttonhole/boutonniere.

Dressed to impress
Q. My groom-to-be is very fashionable and would want an on-trend big-day look – what would you suggest?
A. Danielle Harvey says: Firstly, the cut is important for a contemporary silhouette, opt for slim-fit for both the trouser and jacket. When it comes to colours, variations of blue are still proving popular from navy to cobalt blue. This hue is easy to accessorise as it complements any colour scheme. Although the 'rustic' trend is evolving into a more country-chic-vibe, tweed is still a great, versatile look fitting to rural venues – to make this style on-trend, have your groomsmen in mismatched tweeds. For the fashion-conscious, a truly classic look that will never date is the black tuxedo – suave, sophisticated, you can't go wrong, a modern touch would be to include a personalised monogram in the lining of the jacket with the wedding date and initials.
