Autumn weddings are truly magical, with vibrant colours, cooler temperatures, and a cosy atmosphere that make for an unforgettable celebration.

1. Embrace Seasonal Colours

Autumn is all about rich, warm colours. Incorporate these hues into your wedding attire for a truly seasonal look. Consider suits in shades like deep burgundy, browns, navy blue, or charcoal grey. Pair these with complementary accessories like ties, pocket squares, or suspenders, in autumnal tones such as burnt orange, mustard yellow and earthy browns.

2. Choose the Right Fabric

As temperatures drop, opt for fabrics that provide warmth and comfort without compromising style. Tweed, wool, and flannel are excellent choices for autumn suits. These materials not only keep you warm but also add texture and depth to your outfit, perfect for the season.

3. Layer Up

Autumn weather can be unpredictable, so layering is key. A well-fitted waistcoat adds an extra layer of warmth and sophistication. Consider a three-piece suit for added versatility and style. This allows you to remove the jacket during the reception while still looking polished.

4. Accessorize 

Accessories can make or break your look. For an autumn wedding, consider richer, textured fabrics for your ties and pocket squares. For shoes, darker shades complement the autumn palette. Don’t forget to coordinate your accessories with the overall colour scheme of your wedding.

5. Personalize Your Look

At Dorian Black, we offer made-to-measure services to ensure your suit fits perfectly. Personalization options, such as monogramming your initials or adding a special lining, can make your suit unique and memorable. Our expert tailors are here to guide you through the process, ensuring every detail is perfect.

6. Consider the Venue

The setting of your autumn wedding can influence your attire choices. For outdoor ceremonies, ensure your suit is suitable for the weather conditions. A slightly heavier fabric or additional layers can help keep you comfortable. For indoor venues, focus on elegance and formality, choosing a suit that complements the venue’s ambiance.

7. Plan Ahead

Autumn is a popular season for weddings, so it’s important to plan your attire well in advance. Schedule fittings and consultations early to avoid any last-minute stress. Our dedicated Grooms Room is designed to provide a relaxed and enjoyable experience, ensuring you find the perfect suit in plenty of time for your big day.
