Types of Suits that you can wear at your wedding:
Worn mostly during parties, a tuxedo is more suitable for a wedding reception but you can also wear it during your wedding. In western countries, wearing a tuxedo during a wedding is not advised but in India, you can wear it if no other option is available for you.
A Formal Suit
A classic suit looks more appropriate in a board meeting but again this is a staple among grooms at Indian weddings. If you decide to go with a suit for your wedding, make sure that you get it stitched or altered according to your size.
Three Piece Suit
This is just like a regular suit but a waistcoat or an inner jacket is worn along with it. This outfit looks great for reception and engagement ceremonies. Make sure you compliment your outfit with your partner’s outfit.
Shawl Lapel Suit
This type of suit has a jacket with a lapel instead of a collar. It is usually made from a fabric that is different than the main fabric of the jacket.
These are the Indian versions of a western-style suit. Somewhat closely resembling a Jodhpuri suit, Indo-western suits look rich and give you a more casual look if you want to avoid the traditional Indian wear look.
Suits are the classic look that you can go for at your wedding, engagement, or reception. Nothing speaks class more than a great suit that compliments your personality.
