When to order your made to measure wedding suit

You’re getting married, congratulations! If you’re considering having a made to measure wedding suit created exclusively for you, then timing is everything. Here’s our timeline for you.

  1. 8 MONTHS PRIOR TO YOUR WEDDING

 

  • It’s time to choose your tailor if you’re wanting to treat yourself and purchase a made to measure suit that is designed exclusively for you.
  • Book your initial consultation as soon as possible, as things get very busy come the Spring season.

 

  1. RESEARCH YOUR TAILOR AND GO FOR IT

 

  • Some people choose lots of tailors to visit. This isn’t the best way to decide and it becomes timely all round. A made to measure suit will be created for you especially, so it’s more important that you have a good rapport with your tailor and that should come across through the website or social channels, followed by a phone call with your tailor.
  • This will help to see if you’re a good match. Also, make sure that their pricing is in alignment with your wedding budget.

 

  1. ENJOY THE CREATIVE PART

 

  • Once you’ve chosen who you’ll work with, it’s time for the exciting part – to start creating your suit. It’s wise to have an idea of what style your wedding is going to be so speak to your fiancé to ensure you’re on the same page!
  • It’s always best to start off with as clear as an intention as possible but we do of course guide you to ensure you’re looking your very best and so that we can make your wedding suit dreams come true.

 

  1. IT’S TIME FOR YOUR FITTING

 

  • 6-8 weeks after your first consultation, you’ll have your suit fitting. On this fitting you should wear similar shoes to those you’ll be wearing on the day and a shirt.
  • This way you’ll get the best feel for how it’s going to look on the big day. Your suit will then be pinned to the finished result should you need any tweaks.
  • Tip: If you’re planning on dramatic weight loss, it’s best to start the process when you’re nearer to that. A suit can be quickly ruined if it needs dramatic alterations.

 

  1. FINISHING TOUCHES

 

  • While you’re suit is being made, have a think about the accessories you’d like to wear with it.
  • When your suit is ready for your first fitting, you can then try a few options on to see what works together and you can then choose what style of accessories your groomsmen will be wearing.

 

  1. GROOMING

 

  • 2 weeks prior to your wedding is the best time to start your grooming prep.
  • Sometimes when a haircut has been done the day before, it can look too rigid. If you’re wanting a more laid back look, then it’s best to have your hair grow into the cut for around a week or two, depending on what style you’re going for.

We want you looking the very best on your wedding day. Book your complimentary, 30 minute discovery consultation with us to explore your made to measure, wedding suit options.
