Smart, practical, versatile and warm, tweed is the ultimate fabric for cooler seasons. So it should come as no surprise that it’s big news on the autumn wedding scene.
Whilst, here at Country House Weddings, we’re firm believers that we all need some tweed in our wardrobes, rocking a tweed suit for your wedding day is a great way to look on-trend and heritage cool. In fact, it’s not just during autumn when tweed suits are in vogue, they’re great for winter wedding celebrations too!
We’ll let Tweedmaker explain more about why a tweed suit is a perfect choice for that extra special occasion:
“Thanks to its characteristic dense weave it is suitable for all weather conditions and different temperatures. Tweed is also extremely durable and resistant to damage, but at the same time, soft and flexible. Of course, its features may vary slightly depending on the origin of the wool and type of weave. Another important aspect, encouraging to invest in a tweed suit, is its timeless style.”
