Sydney Wedding — Sydney Weddings



Sydney Wedding was created to be the “how-to” information on organising a wedding along with the “where-to-go in Sydney to find everything”.

The Sydney Wedding raison d’etre is still just as relevant today as it was 26 years ago. Brides and grooms still call Sydney Wedding their bible and we get feedback every day from brides thanking us for all the help we’ve given them. There is no magazine quite like it. Even though we have the internet and social media with masses of information on weddings available at our fingertips, nothing beats having all the information you need to plan your wedding in Sydney in one magazine. It would take years of googling and searching on social media to get all this quality information and inspirational images!

This edition of the planning bible is full to the brim with rings, receptions, decorating, ceremonies, photography, entertainment, transport and sooo much more!


Be enamoured by beautiful bling…

Your rings will likely be something you will want to cherish forever, and keep within your family for subsequent generations, so you will need to choose well. This chapter starting on page 16 will help you make an informed decision so that your precious jewels will last as long as your love for each other. 

In the garden…

For a little taste of old world romance and opulence, you can’t go past one of Sydney’s beautiful heritage-listed buildings on page 66.

Your chariot awaits…

Start your engines and polish those hubcaps, we’ve got a wedding to get to on time. How often do you get the chance to show up somewhere in a sleek luxury Porsche, a pimpin’ stretch Hummer, or a vintage Cadillac. Just don’t get too excited and drive into the sunset, you’ve got a wedding to get to. See page 216…

The secret to beauty…

Exquisite bridal hair and makeup plays an important role in making a bride feel extra special on her wedding day. And often looking and feeling great is all in the preparation. We’ve done the research on page 262 to identify some excellent treatments to make you feel great and look gorgeous on your wedding day.

Tuxedo vs Wedding Suit With Montagio Custom Tailoring


When it comes to choosing formal wear for the groom, you may wonder if there is any difference between a tuxedo or a suit. After all, isn’t a tuxedo just a jazzed up suit for special occasions? Jatin – Creative Director of Montagio Custom Tailoring – explains why it is not, and goes through the many reasons why a groom might to choose one over the other.


Why wear a tuxedo…

Grooms may choose to wear a tuxedo instead of a wedding suit because they want to make a statement. A tuxedo stands out with finishing details and options such as a waistcoat or cummerbund. A satin stripe on the trousers, satin facings on the lapels, and satin pocket trims are some of the physical differences between a tux and a suit. Often, the buttons are satin covered on a tuxedo jacket as well.

Fabric options are another tangible difference. A tuxedo is typically made in a black, navy, or midnight navy fabric in a solid weave without any pattern. This gives the tux a classic look. Another difference of note is that while bow ties and waistcoats can be worn with either tuxedos and wedding suits, a cummerbund is worn exclusively with a tuxedo.

If the garment is unique, then re-use is limited, but the upside of a custom tuxedo is that it makes a statement on your wedding day. Though the options are a few, there are some situations aside from your wedding where the reuse of your wedding tuxedo would work:

  • Black tie events
  • Charity galas
  • Weddings
  • Proms
  • Awards ceremonies
  • Theatre
  • Opera


Why wear a Wedding Suit…

Grooms that opt for a wedding suit may do so in order to maximise the use of the suit. After all, if you are going to spend over $1000 on a wedding suit, then you probably want to use it again.

Suits are acceptable wear to wear in a wider variety of dress codes like business dress, black tie, the races or as a guest of a wedding and can be worn to more events than tuxedos can.While the accessories you choose to wear with your wedding suit may be different from those you would wear for work-wear, you may still be able to reuse them for special occasions and celebrations (think anniversaries or fancy parties). Thus, a wedding suit is a better investment over time because the cost of wearing goes down faster than a tuxedo’s will.


It’s Your Party

Your celebration, your rules, right? Well… for the best part! For instance, one rule is to avoid wearing wedding suits with pinstripes to your wedding. It’s just too business-like. You would find it difficult to use a pinstripe business suit for wedding wear, but you could use a solid colour suit as both a wedding suit and work wear.

The fun thing about fashion and style is there are always exceptions to every rule. Elvis Presley was married in his midnight blue tux; Aaron Paul tied the knot in a navy tuxedo; Tom Cruise celebrated his nuptials dressed in a designer wedding suit… and they all looked dapper!

So, who is the winner in the tuxedo versus wedding suit debate? You are!

By weighing-up the benefits of both and making the best decision for your ceremony, you can be assured you look and feel like a million bucks – regardless of whether you are dressed in a designer tuxedo like Justin Timberlake or rocking a traditional wedding suit like Tom Cruise.
