What colour suit is appropriate for a wedding?

9th December 2022

The colour of your suit is the easiest way to lock in harmony with the bride and the occasion. It’s the first opportunity to make a positive impression and set mood for the ceremony.

At Wil Valor we suggest dressing to suit the season as it can easily guide you on many of your choice points in your planning process.


Springtime is ideal for lighter greys, blues, pinks, ivory, browns and green.


Autumn gives way to olive, burgundy, medium grey and darker browns.


Winter ushers in charcoal, black, midnight blue, purple and forest green.


Summer is great for ice blues, soft pink, and off white.

Consider embracing more contrasting style combinations. This includes different fabric jackets, vests, and trousers with multiple colour combinations.

You also need to consider the fabric you choose, ensuring the comfort of yourself and your groomsmen. Our suit fabrics include Lora Piana, Zegna, Scabal, Dormeuil and Cerruti, as well as a vast collection of boutique fabric suppliers from around the globe.

Types of fabrics include 100% wools, wool/silk blends, linens, tweeds, velvets, and cottons.

A popular choice in bespoke wedding suits in Australia is cotton, as it is so comfortable. A cotton wedding suit is perfect for weddings that are less formal. Keep in mind a cotton suit will crease more than a wool suit.

Wool wedding suits are another popular option. Through its natural crimp, wool creates miniscule air pockets, which help regulate temperature and keep you fresh during the spring and summer. Most of our Zegna fabric wedding suits sold in our Brisbane showroom are made from fine Italian light weight wool.

Lately we are seeing more people pick velvet wedding suits or suit jackets. Velvet is better if your wedding is in winter or the cooler months for obvious reasons. Velvet wedding suits make a statement and look good in any colour.

Our clothiers will be able to discuss with you the perfect fabric for your season and style. Meet our master clothiers for a private consultation to discuss your wedding suit style and fit.
