When you think of a Nigerian wedding, you most likely imagine a beautiful bride in a traditional dress. But what about the grooms and white weddings? In order to fill this void, we have decided to talk about wedding suits in Nigeria, so that they too get the appreciation they deserve. Join us, as we take a look at ten most stylish wedding suit pictures from Nigerian white weddings. Who knows, maybe you will find some inspiration for your own wedding suit!
Wedding suits come in all shapes, styles and sizes, which is why we have decided to divide our ten picks into three (nominal) categories. We have for you classic two- and three-piece suits, as well as some rather flashy options that have their own category. Without further ado, let’s get to it!
Classic two-piece wedding suit for men
We want to start things off with this classic combination of a black two-piece suit with a simple white shirt. You can never go wrong with something like this. As long as everything is fitted properly, you should be good to go. This suit will look particularly good if you accessorise it with a pocket handkerchief, a boutonniere and a lovely tie/bowtie.
If you want to look a little less ordinary, you can wear a handsome velvet jacket. This particular one is made out of very beautiful deep purple fabric, which looks great on dark skin. So if you want your suit to look just as good, definitely consider this colour. To add even more to this look, you can have a velvet bowtie as an accessory.
Choosing a single colour for your wedding suit is never a bad idea, especially if it something as luxurious as this shade of blue. Notice how almost everything this model is wearing is made out of complementing shades of the same colour. However, it is important to introduce a splash of a different colour to make things more interesting, hence the white shirt.
They call it a white wedding for a reason, so why not match your wife and also wear white to your big day? You do not have to be dressed in white from head to toe; you can wear differently coloured trousers or add some colour accents to the tie/bowtie and the pocket, as you can see in the picture. However, try not to go overboard with accessories just because you are wearing white. Everything is better in moderation.
Stylish three-piece wedding suit for man
If you want to look like a proper gentleman, then you should definitely consider wearing a three-piece suit. As you can see from the first picture in this category, not all three pieces have to match for you to look good in your wedding suit. That said, at least two things should match, and the second colour should not clash with the main one (unless you want to look like a clown, which you probably do not).
If you want to wear a tuxedo to your wedding, you should choose the appropriate waistcoat, which looks slightly different from a regular one. The waistcoat for a tuxedo has to be made out of the same material as the suit, and the colour should match either the trousers or the jacket (or both). You can also consider wearing a cummerbund, which is a sash that you wear around the waist instead of the waistcoat.

To look extra dapper on your important day, you can also try out the so-called penguin suit, where the jacket’s back is long enough to cover your backside. To be fair, this is borderline extravagant, but we have decided to leave it in this category. Once again, you can either wear all the same-coloured pieces or have one of them stand out. Just make sure that everything is fitted properly, so that you can look handsome.
Extravagant wedding suit for groom
If you are not afraid of outshining your beautiful bride in your very stylish suit, then this category is just the thing for you! And our first pick is this shiny gold suit jacket. Everything about this outfit screams ‘opulence’, and you can be sure that the guests will not mistake you for a best man or just another guest. Matched with a black shirt and bowtie, this ensemble looks particularly stunning.
Another great option is a patterned suit jacket. Nothing can make you look more interesting than an outfit with a peculiar pattern. However, if you choose to go for something like this, make sure that the suit is not wearing you, as some patterns might be too distracting or simply too much for a wedding.
That said, as long as you find something you like, do not be afraid to wear it just because it is not something you would usually wear. After all, a wedding is a very special occasion, and you would want to look your best.
We would like to end our compilation with this absolutely stunning suit jacket. When else would you be able to wear something this beautiful? Nevertheless, make sure you do not steal the spotlight from your bride, or she will never forgive you. In addition to that, you should also consider the colour palette of your future wife’s dress so that you two do not clash.
Those were all of our ten picks of the most beautiful Nigerian wedding suits for grooms. We hope you have been able to find some inspiration for your own wedding suit or just enjoy our wonderful selection.
