Fly. Ballin. Dashing. Trim. Legit. These are all adjectives people are muttering as I walk past them on our wedding day. Why are they saying these things? Because at this point in my hypothetical world, they are looking at me flashing by in my wedding suit that fits me perfectly and makes me look like a GQ model.
But let’s step back for a second back into present day. I’m standing amidst racks of gray, black, blue, and tan fabrics hanging from racks. I’m looking for that incredible wedding suit that will make people forget about how beautiful Morgan looks in her wedding dress. Just kidding—that won’t happen, but I want to look respectable standing next to her.
So, a couple weeks ago, Miss Coral and I went looking at suits for me with my friend, Jeremy, and his fiancee (they’re getting married a month after us). Jeremy and I have the same idea of what we want to wear on our wedding days: light gray, slim-fit suit with a matching vest. I’m not a fan of tuxedos and I never wear black clothes, so I didn’t want to look like someone else on the most important day of my life. To me, a perfectly fitting suit with great accent features like the shirt, tie, socks, and shoes looks a lot better than a tuxedo. Plus, our venue is extremely casual and on the water, so it’s not really a tuxedo kind of place.
