Say Yes to the Suit

When it comes to wedding attire, much more planning — not to mention budget — typically goes into the bride's gown than the groom's garb. But that doesn't mean the husband-to-be doesn't want to look his best on his wedding day. Same goes for his best men, the father of the bride, and so on. If you're looking for wedding day attire without spending a fortune (matrimonial suit and tuxedo prices can often exceed $2,000), here are some retailers that offer style and quality without an exorbitant price tag.


Prices and availability are subject to change.

Shoppers can also filter by event date availability, individual or group, and pieces that are available for home try-on.

Or maybe just start with the site's tuxedo bestsellers and go from there.


This natty-looking suit gets more than four stars from over 1,000 buyers, and lots of reviewers were pleased enough with their purchase to post pictures (and we have to admit, many of them look chic and handsome in this vest, jacket, and pants combo).

For something truly unique, never overlook Etsy for apparel of any kind, and that includes wedding attire. There's not as many tuxedos and wedding suits on the site as, say, wedding dresses, but there's a pretty decent assortment, with much of reasonably priced.


We love that men are not as intimidated by sporting a pop of color as they used to be, and we really love the statement that this pink pants, jacket, and vest combo makes. The shop, DesignVillaArt, gets lots of five-star reviews, and it sells the same suit in other colors plus plenty of other wedding-appropriate styles.
