6 tips for choosing the costume of a witness
Tip # 1: Modern and Traditional
The habit of the witnesses is usually the 3-piece custom suit, worn with a bow tie or tie. It's the perfect blend of tradition and modernity.
The 3-piece costume remains very traditional and elegant. Wearing a bow tie is very modern, often liberty pattern.
Tip # 2: In no way like the Married
The suit will be worn by many, even if everyone has one, the groom must be the only one to have his own style.
The witnesses will have to have a variant of that of the groom, a different version, but in the same theme.
For example, if the groom is dressed in a white suit, the witnesses will be in a light gray suit.
If the groom had been black, the witnesses' costumes would be rather dark gray.
It is frowned upon to be more or less dressed like the groom.
Tip # 3: Stand out
To choose your suit, do not hesitate to consult the groom to be sure to be on the same theme and no nasty surprises. To not be dressed the same way.
Sometimes, the grooms do not ask that the witnesses and the groomsmen have the same suit, they just ask to wear a dark or light suit.
To stand out from the guests, add an original accessory.
Remember to harmonize your outfit and accessories with those of other witnesses and groomsmen.
Tip # 4: Accessories for the wedding witness
Right now the trend is to wear a coordinating accessory between the witnesses, the groomsmen and the groom.
This is a distinctive sign that will highlight you.
Your accessory will allow the guests to recognize you, at first glance you will know that you are part of the witnesses or groomsmen.
Examples of trendy accessories:
Accessory 1: The socks
The socks are a small detail, but that make all the difference, it's original, but remains elegant when properly used.
If all the witnesses wear striped socks of different colors, these will be your distinguishing mark.
Accessory 2: The tie or the bow tie
Witnesses, if they are several, may wear the same color of tie or a bow tie reminiscent of that of the groom.
For example, if the groom wears a red tie, you can wear a red striped tie in the same shades.
Tip # 5: The Marriage Theme
Learn about the topic of marriage before you start looking for your suit, ask the groom to find out exactly what to look for.

But always be careful not to be like the groom.
Tip # 6: A suit cut to your plastic
