8 Types of Modern Wedding Suits and 15 Styles Popular with Nigerian Grooms (Photos with Styling Tips)
1. Three-Piece Suit for Wedding in Solid Plain Colour
STYLE NOTES: A 3-piece suit is similar to a two-piece suit, but in this case, it includes a waistcoat (also known as a vest). That is, it has trousers, a jacket, and a waistcoat.
If you desire to look stylishly different without extra cost, a 3-piece suit offers you the perfect option to switch up your looks and still look polished.
Wear the full ensemble during the church (religious) or court wedding ceremony. Later, unbutton the outer suit jacket to reveal the waistcoat. During the reception, switch up into a casual vibe and get ready to dance by taking off the suit jacket.
2. White Tuxedo Jacket or Dinner Jacket for Wedding
STYLE NOTES: The white tuxedo jacket or dinner jacket on black trousers is another top favourite of Nigerian grooms, as observed by our trend spotters. Usually, this wedding suit style is accessorized with a black bow tie and black pocket-square.
The addition of contrasting coloured accessories make this suit style pop and makes the groom attire interesting. Some grooms tweak this white tux or white dinner jacket style by opting for black lapels (instead of white lapels); an example we see is a white dinner jacket with black lapels.
HINT: Most big hotel waiters wear the white suit jacket as their uniforms, and you won’t want someone to mistake you for a hotel waiter (that is if your wedding venue is at a hotel). Don’t worry, there is a way to make your white tuxedo or white dinner jacket styling look different and posh.
So, if you are thinking of going for this style, be sure to elevate your attire with a few suit accessories. Ensure to read to the end of this long post to see the section where I covered the types of men’s suit accessories and how to use them to look stylishly different when wearing a suit.
3. Two-Piece Suit for Wedding in Plain, Solid Colour
