Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Mens Suit Warehouse offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

How to describe our dress code to guests

We want to have a formal, black tie wedding, but we’re not sure our guests will really know what that means. What’s a short and polite way of explaining this on our wedding invites? We really want everyone to dress up for it.

Mens Suit Warehouse


Perhaps state the code as "Formal Black Tie"  as this will clarify it's not a "play on black tie" it IS a black tie. :-) 

And then a simple description like we have on our guide would be helpful on your website? 

Hope this helps! It's always a tricky one. 

We have one here:

For Black Tie, You'll be wearing:

  • Black Tuxedo
  • Black Bow Tie
  • White Tuxedo Shirt
  • Patent Leather Shoes 
  • If you don't have Patent Shoes, don't worry - Black and shiny new will work. Try any black options from the Martino Carolus collection.
Our Tuxedo Range has everything you need to look great and fit the part.

This Boston classic fit tuxedo looks a million bucks. It has a timeless appeal that will do the job nicely. 

For a variation on the classic look, what is sometimes called Creative Black Tie allows you to still look formal while mixing it up a little, by wearing a jacket like this Studio Italia Tuxedo in ivory.

What are the benefits to having a bespoke suit over buying from the rack?

Mens Suit Warehouse

Hi Thanks for reaching out we find a lot of grooms like the idea of a bespoke suit this will normally fit much better than off the rack as you can imagine the suit is made for the groom unfortunately this is a costly exercise we have made some really good partner arrangements with some bespoke tailors where they can offer a better deal if we refer you please feel free to call or ask us we will be happy to get you our parner deals.

most groomesmen suits are brought off the rack this is where we are really popular as we understand there are sometimes more than 3 or 4 groomesmen we can offer you our wedding packeges.

please feel free to call or visit any of our stores for our deals.



What formalwear would look good with a floral wedding dress?

The base is still ivory, but it had pinks, purples and through it. Its the Wendy Makin Couture Katelyn.

Mens Suit Warehouse

you cant go past a sharp black tuxedo this is as formal as you can get i would consider the corsage or the tie to match in with the floral dress we can also sugges blue and charcoal we would have to have a close look at your reds and pinks.

What different types of wedding suits are there?

Mens Suit Warehouse

We have one of the biggest ranges of wedding suits please feel free to visit one of our stores located near you.



If the brides dress is white, can the groom wear ivory bow tie?

My bridal dress is white (not ivory) and i’m considering whether the groom should be wearing white or ivory bow tie. I’m afraid he would look washed out wearing white bow tie on top of white shirt or it would blend in too much.

Mens Suit Warehouse

hi we at menssuitwarehouse have been been involved in dressing wedding parties for over 20 years we have seen some very out there ideas and also the traditional approach our opinion is very simple every wedding party is different we like to take the approach try and see and then you will decide yourself when you see it..


its your wedding we believe once you see it together you will know the difference so feel free to pop in and let one of our experienced consultant work through all the options and come to the right decision for you..



should we buy or hire the groom's formal wear and what are pros and cons for each?

Mens Suit Warehouse

We always recommend buying as you will find if you do your research you should find that the prices for buying a new suit would be very close to hiring a suit and lets not forget when you hire a suit the choices are not normally great as this would be limited..

If you are after the new modern blue suit or a classic tailored black tuxedo we are running these out from $299/$399/$499 or just enquire about our Wedding packages which are highlighted on the easyweddings website .

Buy 3 suits or more and get 20% off your suits..


Angelo Salerno

What is the approximate usual cost of formal wear hire?

My partner is asking me how much to budget for, I wanna say like $500-1000, but I'm not sure

Mens Suit Warehouse

Hi Mason you will find that the price of buying a new suit will be fairly close to hiring one might be a good idea if you asked around or if you know someone who has been married recently..

We are currently running wedding packages fairly often our prices sart from $299 or 2 for $500 check out our formal range on our website..


MSW Team

What colour suit will go with my blush wedding dress?

Mens Suit Warehouse

Hi Elise

We at MSW would suggest to consider a Navy or Royal Blue will defianately work back with your colour blush and we would suggest a blush colour corsage or Tie which will look fantastic..

Please feel free to visit us at any of our 3 locations or email us for a free consultation..

should the groom have his suit jacket on or off during first dance?

My partner and I were having a chat and we got stumped on whether he should or shouldn't wear his suit jacket during our first dance. If he does will he look really stiff but then if he doesn't will he look less formal? He's not wearing a vest either so it'll just be a tie and white shirt

Mens Suit Warehouse

Definitely on as it represents the couples first dance as husband and wife so you would expect the photography and video will look sharp.

If the brides dress is ivory, do the groom and groomsmen need to wear ivory shirts?

Or are white shirts okay?

Mens Suit Warehouse

Hi it's not necessary to wear Ivory Shirts I think white is the best option especially when it comes to photography it always looks sharper.

What colour groomsmen with navy blue bridesmaids - beach/rustic theme?

Mens Suit Warehouse

Hi Jaymie-Lee we would suggest a biege Chino and a blue mini check S/Coat will look amazing to capture the beach and rustic feel..
