A guide to choosing a Wedding Suit.
February is the month when more grooms than ever are looking into sorting out their suit for their summer wedding. I am no exception (I’m getting married in September), and I myself will be beginning the process soon. So since it was on my mind I though I would share a few tips for creating that perfect wedding suit. It’s hugely biased towards going bespoke – but can you blame me?
I hope you find the following suggestions useful.
Choosing your wedding suit can be a difficult process. It’s probably your first time (and hopefully your last!) so even the most experienced suit buyer will need advice and off the peg shops will always try and sell you whatever they have in stock.
The key to getting the wedding suit right is to make sure that the suit is stylish enough that you don’t look like you’re wearing a business suit on your wedding day, whilst ensuring that you don’t upstage the bride!
Naturally I would advise going bespoke. Below are the main three reasons why:
Firstly, a bespoke wedding suit will fit you perfectly. The eyes of all your loved ones are on you – and the photos will last forever – so you need to look the best you’ve ever looked. The suit needs to show off your best features and hide your worst. It also needs to be a reflection of you as an individual and the wedding as an occasion. You therefore need to be measured by a professional who understands both your needs and the art of making a bespoke wedding suit.
2) A Bespoke Wedding suit = Infinite Choice
Secondly, a bespoke wedding suit offers infinite choice. We stock over 3000 cloths, so before we show you anything we find out about you and your wedding requirements. We ask about the mood of the wedding, the size, the style of it. Then we ask about practical matters – what will the temperature be like? What is the timescale, the budget etc? Mainly we ask you about you – so that when we do step to the fabric table we can help you make the perfect decision.
3) A Bespoke Wedding suit = Adding personalised features (for free!)
A bespoke wedding suit offers the possibility for you to add fantastic bespoke features that make the suit special to you. For example, you can have anything you like embroidered on the inside of the jacket, such as Kate & Will 29.04.11 – a lovely touch that you will treasure forever (especially when it comes to remembering anniversaries!!). Other bespoke additions include coloured stitching on the boutonnière or sleeve buttons, specially designed waistcoats, extra pockets – the list is endless. If you see something you like in a magazine or on the web bring it to your consultation – we would love to discuss your ideas.
Finally, we believe that: A bespoke wedding suit is for life – not just for your wedding!
We want you to be able to wear your bespoke suit to work or to other events in the future – and we have many ingenious ways of making this possible –without compromising on your wedding style. This offers you even better value for money.
