wedding trends 2018

The 2018 wedding season is about to get underway here with the launch of our newest groomswear collection. We like to think that the Slater Menswear groomswear collection always showcases the very best and latest trends for the season. We’re going to be introducing you to some of the key pieces from this new collection and sharing with you the top trends for the upcoming wedding season.

Blue is Back

Blue and navy suits have been a firm favourite with grooms for many years now and that isn’t set to change anytime soon. Our newest collection has a range of navy and blue three-piece suits in a variety of different shades, styles and fabrics to suit every gent.

Whether you want a tailored suit in a comfortable fabric or a smart, slim fitting three-piece, we’ve got the perfect blue or navy wedding suit for you.

If you’re keen to have your whole groom’s party in the same blue suits then you’ll be pleased to hear that we’ve got a selection of suave navy blue suits in smaller sizes to suit boys and teens.

 Traditional is on Trend

The world of wedding suits has modernised over the last few years with more and more men choosing to ditch the morning suit and opt for a fitted three-piece. As much as we love the new styles of wedding suits, we’re glad to say that traditional is back on trend for 2018.

Our new range of groomswear has a great mix of styles but one of the standout pieces of the whole collection has to be the classic morning suit. In a smart yet comfortable fit but boasting the classic tail coat, our grey morning suits are the perfect choice for the man who wants his big day to have a traditional feel.

Want something a little more standout? We’ve created a dapper morning suit that combines a long black jacket and grey pinstripe trouser for a look that is classic but with a bold twist.

Plenty of couples choose to jet off to sunnier destinations to tie the knot, so if you’re planning to head down the aisle on a beach then you’ll need the suit to match and that’s where the linen suit comes in!

We’ve bringing back our best-selling navy and stone coloured linen three-piece suits for 2018, so that grooms saying their vows under the sun can look and feel cool on their big day!

Black Will Always Be in Style

Forget ‘orange is the new black’, black will always be in style here at Slater Menswear. A classic black tuxedo is a perfect choice for the whole groom’s party which is why we knew it was essential to create a range of dapper black suits for our new collection.

We’ve kept it classic with our new black suits and designed a range of shapes and styles to suit every man. From tailored tuxedos to looser fitting three-piece suits with eye-catching details, our range of black suits has something to fit every wedding theme.

Choosing a black suit gives you plenty of room to be creative with colourful accessories to match your theme but for an effortlessly cool look, we’d recommend going back to basics with a bow tie to match your colour scheme and some understated but smart dress shoes. Hire or buy, the choice is yours!

It’s the Season to be Bold

We saw bold burgundy suits become a favourite in 2017 and that’s a trend that is hanging around for 2018. If you want to be the groom that makes a statement while heading down the aisle, then a slim fitting burgundy suit is the right choice for you.

Ideal for weddings all year round thanks to the versatile and vibrant colour, burgundy suits may be a bold choice but they’re extremely easy to style. The colour of the suit does all the hard work for you, so all you need to do is add a crisp white shirt and black accessories and there you go, a dapper wedding outfit!
