Feeling comfortable, confident and stylish are top of the list when thinking about what to wear on your wedding day. But you'll also want to keep in mind your venue and how you and your S.O. will coordinate with each other (especially in all those photos!). That's because choosing your wedding attire is all about complementing—rather than competing with—each other...just like your relationship. Below, check out our picks for suits and tuxes from Men's Wearhouse that pair perfectly with your partner's outfit, whether your vibe is outdoor rustic or big-city chic.

Beachy Boho

Saying "I do" on the beach means feeling the sun on your face and wind in your hair, so a semiformal or casual look is your best bet. A light-colored suit fits the bill and helps you stay cool under the hot sun. Pair it with a seersucker bow tie or anchor cuff links for a nautical touch, or for a more casual affair feel free to skip the tie (or even the jacket) altogether.

For a dress, easy-breezy does it—the last thing you want is a stiff fabric that doesn't move with you. Plus, nothing beats a lighter-than-air skirt that's easy to hike up an inch or two for easy maneuvering on the sand (or wading in the waves).

Formal Fete

Swanky digs call for fancy duds. At a black-tie affair, only a traditional black tux will do. Worn with a crisp white wing- or spread-collar shirt and a black vest, this look is timeless. For an ultra-formal evening, you can also up the ante with a white tie instead.

The ballroom and the ball gown were literally made for each other. A tulle skirt of epic proportions makes for some pretty serious twirling on the dance floor, while a deep V neckline with illusion inset adds a dash of glam.

Vintage Romance

You consider your love story a modern-day fairy-tale, so opt for a three-piece gray tuxedo that gives off that Prince Charming vibe. Wear it with a traditional bow tie, or try a long black, white or champagne silk tie and coordinating pocket square for an even more dapper look.

For the romantic at heart, an A-line gown with allover vintage-inspired lace motifs and delicate pearl buttons down the back will have you floating down the aisle towards your happily ever after.

Old Hollywood Glam

Getting married at a lounge or other retro space? Nothing says old-school Hollywood quite like a white dinner jacket. Stay classic with a black tie and shiny patent shoes, or nod to the silver screen with a metallic pocket square.

Your counterpart is all about that va-va-voom! With a deep-V neckline and mirrored illusion back, lacy appliqued bodice and flouncy, organza-tiered skirt, this fit-and-flare gown is the height of drama.

Modern Love

A navy suit is a cool spin on a classic, especially when coupled with either a matching or patterned vest. Finish the look with an unexpected boutonniere made from feathers or succulents that gives a nod to your contemporary venue, like a loft or an art gallery.

For your partner, a chic, easy-to-wear and perfectly tailored lace jumpsuit is the height of modern sophistication. Wear it with heels for your ceremony and change into fashionable kicks later to break it down on the dance floor.

City Chic

If your wedding takes place amid the bright lights of a city backdrop, chic and trendy is the way to go. A floral-patterned jacket with a satin-edged lapel and a sophisticated dark gray three-piece suit will help you and your partner look the perfect pair.

To effortlessly coordinate, choose ties and pocket squares in complementary hues or patterns. Men's Wearhouse has tons of accessories to match your color palette that you can add to the rental package.

Rustic Refinement

For a wedding with an outdoorsy feel (think: a barn or forest setting), light gray is a good choice to look dressed up but not too fussy. To play up the natural surroundings, add a plaid tie and pocket square, or go for a subtly patterned shirt paired with a solid bow tie.

Delicate crocheted lace with an intricate floral pattern complements the soft, romantic atmosphere of a rustic wedding. Dramatic details like a plunging low back and chapel-length train are practically made for dancing under the stars.

Polished & Preppy

A sharp blue suit is a classic American sportswear staple. For a look that fits right in at the yacht club, pair it with a preppy patterned tie, like plaid, striped or polka dot. If yours is a more casual event (say, an outdoor daytime bash), consider pairing the suit jacket with a pair of khakis and a light blue shirt—and don't forget the argyle socks.

Demure details like a bateau neckline and detachable belt that sits right at the waist are musts for your preppy look. This alluring gown offers that plus an open keyhole back and intricate beading made up of tons of tiny pearls that call to mind the ocean.
