There are many types of wedding suits, but menswear only falls into three formal categories. Black Tie, White Tie and Formal.
Black Tie - this is a dinner suit, and can be accessorised to your pleasure. Popular accessories include braces and shirt studs. The type of suit here is any suit that has a satin lapel finish. The base colour can be whatever you please, and Instagram and Facebook are loaded with images. The colour of the satin can contrast or match the suit, but most dinner suits have black satin lapels.
Formal - this refers to any suit with a matching trouser. The lapel finish matches the suit fabric also, and generally the buttons are of a matching colour. Accessories like vests, bowties, coloured shoes (usually brown) and ties bars are popular with this dress standard.
White tie - Strictly Tails coat, with a white marsala vest, and matching white bowtie. Optional wing tip shirt, but must be a dinner shirt, optional marsala finish also. Generally worn with black patent leather shoes. This dress standard is rarely worn but the most formal. Think, White House wedding, or Buckingham Palace dinner.
These dress standards will help you select a suit, but remember to think about where you are getting married, what you want it to match, compliment or blend with. As a general guide the boys suits will provide base for your photo's and a stylist will understand how to use the suits to maximise the look for your venue, flowers and the gents individual looks.
