Hiring the Perfect Wedding Suit

August 2017


Your wedding day is one of the most special occasions of your life. Therefore, you need to make sure you look your best.

Below, you will find some useful tips to finding the perfect wedding suit for yourself and your groomsmen.

Talk to your friends
Ask around and talk to your married friends. Recommendations are a sure sign of high quality service and reliability. Find out about additional services, like tailored fitting, do they charge for these services and how quickly can they adapt to your requirements.

Try, try and try again
Try on different outfits for the colour and style to suit you and the wishes of your bride. Make sure the items are not over worn, are well maintained and that your chosen style of wedding suit is tailored to your requirements. In certain circumstances, suppliers may not be willing to make adjustments to their stock, therefore you should always use an outfitter that has the willingness and ability to modify garments to your requirements.

Make the right choice
Usually the Bride will specify a colour. The choice of suit and accessories should be a combination of comfort and style, as you will be wearing it all day. When the choice is made, the groom should then arrange for best men, groomsmen and fathers to be measured and fitted.

Size them up
Make sure there is a broad choice of sizes for your party, ensuring your outfitter can accommodate everyone.

Standing out from the crowd
The choice is entirely up to you, most grooms create a small difference in their outfit to identify them from the rest of the groom’s party. That could be as simple as a change in tie colour or a different flower on their lapel, a good outfitter should be able to help you decide on what’s right for you.

Collection and returns
Make sure you arrange to collect your suits with plenty of time to try them on for one final time, if a change of size is required it will give your outfitter enough time to organise any changes in size that may be required. When you return your suits, it helps to have a check list, so you can keep an eye on who has returned their suit and who hasn’t.
