Edward Cullen and Bella Swann getting married

GQ magazine gave Edward Cullen’s Brioni suit a thumbs up

It used to be the case that a wedding day was all about the bride and what she was wearing but, with men’s fashion become more prominent, (the recent column inches generated by London Collections: Men is proof, if any were needed) that just isn’t how it works anymore.

It really isn’t acceptable to just head to your nearest Moss Brothers to hire a suit or use the one you’d saved for “best” that’s just a little too short in the leg. Grooms need to dress to impress as much as brides.

There are a few rules – the first of which is: check with your bride-to-be what she’s wearing (if she needs watch inspiration tell her to click here). We’re not suggesting you ask for pictures (that would earn you a withering death-stare), but a general gist helps. The rule of thumb is if she is in a meringue, you need a morning suit. More trend-led white dress? You’re in a suit. Beyond that, anything goes. Though we’d draw the line at tracksuit bottoms…

To help with these modern hurdles we’ve chosen some suitable outfits that could work on your big day, and, of course, selected the ideal timepieces to match.

Now all you have to do is worry about is keeping the sherry hidden from your Great-Aunt Pam.
