Elevate Your Outdoor Wedding: Choosing the Perfect Custom Suit and Outfit

15th February 2024

Planning an outdoor wedding is a thrilling endeavour, filled with the promise of picturesque landscapes and the gentle embrace of nature. As you embark on this romantic journey, one essential aspect that demands careful consideration is your attire. A custom suit and outfit tailored specifically for your outdoor celebration can add a touch of sophistication and personalisation to your special day. In this article, we'll explore the key factors to consider when commissioning the perfect attire for your outdoor wedding. 

Fabric Selection 

The first step in creating a custom suit for your outdoor wedding is selecting the right fabric. Given the unpredictability of outdoor weather, lightweight and breathable fabrics are paramount. Opt for materials like linen, cotton, or lightweight wool blends that provide comfort and allow your skin to breathe, especially if you're tying the knot during the warmer months. These fabrics not only keep you cool but also lend a relaxed and effortless elegance to your overall look. 


Colour Palette 

The colour palette of your wedding attire should harmonise with the natural surroundings of your chosen outdoor venue. Earthy tones like sage green, soft blues, or neutral hues complement outdoor settings seamlessly. Consider the season as well. . .  

  • pastels may work well for a spring wedding 
  • deeper tones can be perfect for an autumn celebration 
  • lighter colours like off-whites and tans are great for summer 
  • darker and moodier hues such as charcoal and burgundy work well for winter 

A custom suit allows you to choose colours that resonate with your personal style and the ambiance of your outdoor wedding. 

Suit Style and Fit 

When commissioning a custom suit, focus on the style and fit that aligns with the outdoor setting. A two-piece suit with tailored jacket and well-fitted trousers is a modern choice. However, if your wedding has a more classic vibe, a three-piece suit with a vest can add a touch of sophistication. Ensure that the suit jacket allows for ease of movement, especially if your outdoor celebration involves activities like dancing. 


Accessories and Personalisation 

Elevate your custom suit by paying attention to accessories and personalisation. Choose a tie or bowtie that complements your colour palette and consider incorporating personal touches like monogrammed cufflinks or a pocket square in a contrasting pattern. At Wil Valor in Brisbane, our expert clothiers are trained to perfection for not only helping you to create your bespoke suit, but also to help you choose the best accessories to match. Your choice of accessories provides an opportunity to express your individuality and create a lasting memory associated with your outdoor wedding.


Selecting the right shoes is crucial for an outdoor wedding, where terrain can vary. If your celebration takes place on grass or uneven ground like sand, opt for shoes that are both stylish and practical. Loafers or dress shoes with a rubber sole can provide the necessary grip while maintaining a polished appearance. Consider the colour of your shoes to your suit and the overall theme of the wedding. Brown is more relaxed and approachable while black dress shoes are more formal. 


Weather Contingencies 

While planning for your outdoor wedding, it's essential to be prepared for unexpected weather changes. If your celebration is during a season prone to rain, consider a custom suit made from water-resistant materials like Loro Piana’s weather collection. For cooler events, a woollen overcoat might be necessary. 


Choosing a custom suit and outfit for your outdoor wedding is a delightful journey that allows you to express your personality and style. By carefully considering the fabric, colour palette, suit style, accessories, footwear, and weather contingencies, you can ensure that your attire not only enhances your overall look but also adapts seamlessly to the unique demands of an outdoor celebration. Embrace the beauty of nature and create lasting memories with an outfit that reflects the magic of your love and the enchantment of your outdoor wedding.
