Wedding Day on the Horizon? When should you buy your suit?

Finding the perfect wedding suit can be a daunting task. Brides tend to start shipping for a gown a year in advance of the wedding date. It could takes months to find the perfect gown and time still for the perfect alterations to suit the wearer. Hundreds, possibly thousands of dollars later, your bride will be a shining example of wedding bliss, for a day. 

When it comes to the groom and their wedding party, that is a different story. One we need to change. If you’re reading this now and your wedding is a few weeks away, it’s already too late.

It doesn’t matter if you know your way around a suit pretty well, or if you’re more of a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy, our stylists can help you find the perfect suit for your wedding. Give yourselves enough time to design and craft a 21st Century Suit of Armor worthy of your partner’s affection. 

Rentals will never fit as well as a suit that is crafted to fit your exact body type. Through our comfortable consultation process, we don’t leave room for errors that result in an ill-fitting suit.

Just say no to a suit that dozens of other people have worn, and say hello to a suit that will last a lifetime.

When Should You Order?

Ideally, ordering your suit 4-6 months out is what we recommend. This gives the groom and the wedding party plenty of time to get their suits, try them on, and get any necessary in-person alterations made.

We start with the groom. We think it’s important for you to touch and feel the quality of your suit, to try it on, and look at yourself from different angles. How do you feel in the suit? Do you feel like you’re ready to take on the world and a new life partner? Because that’s exactly how you should feel!

And here’s something that a lot of guys miss- suit pants fit much differently than jeans! The pants of a suit are tailored specifically to ride higher on your back end to give that clean, classic line and so they don’t sag or bag in all the wrong places.

Ordering as soon as possible within that recommended 4-6 month timeframe also gives us a little grace time if you feel like your jacket or vest doesn’t fit you just right. You should feel comfortable- yet look fantastic- in your suit!

The Wedding Party

Once you (the groom) love your suit, it’s time for your best friends to order theirs. They’ll each get their own stylist to make sure that the suits they are ordering are the right fit for them. Even if they’ve never worn a suit (trust us, this happens!), we’re going to make this process easy and painless for them. Oh, and we can even take care of your dad, grandfathers, and brothers to make sure that EVERYONE will look elegant in those family photos that you’re going to treasure for years to come.

Final Countdown

Two months before the big day is when we want to place the final order to make sure everything is in your (and your groomsmen’s) hands with plenty of time. Once the final order is placed, you will have all the suits in about 4-6 weeks. Your final fitting is scheduled and you’ll be all set for the big day. 

Need more guidance on how the process works? Just get in touch! One of our stylists will lead you through the entire process- including making suggestions on colors or styles based on your body type- and will help you find the right suit for your wedding day.
