Q. My hubby-to-be is looking for his winter wedding outfit what should we bear in mind?

A. Danielle Harvey says: Fabric is key at this time of year to keep the chill off – especially for those outside snaps. Tweed is ideal for a rustic setting and countryside themes, it's super-warm, breathable yet water resistant. A herringbone suit made from a twilled yarn such as wool, would be perfect for more contemporary settings as it's cosy for winter nuptials and is available in a wide range of styles and colours. At this time of year, your best option is to layer up, especially for the younger pageboys. Waistcoats are a must-have, and will keep a little warmth when suit jackets are removed after the wedding breakfast or during the evening reception.

When it comes to colours and accessories, keep it classic with dark hues, and consider the weather for footwear. Those suede shoes may look cool, but they'll get ruined in the rain.
