Your preferences and desires are what will your wedding suit uniquely yours.

Wedding Suit Hire
Our unique hire service. All the quality and class of a luxury garment crafted by a master tailor for your special day. Choose from a wide range of suits and we’ll readjust the suit to your measurements.
Our luxury wedding suit hire garments are a great alternative for dressing the groom and groomsmen. After you have chosen the style of your garment, detailed measurements are taken by a professional tailor, noting your shape as well as your size. The garment is then re-tailored.
A fitting is arranged when the garment is carefully checked and further adjustments may be required and only after that, that the garment is handed over; this is a professional service.
Being guided and measured by a bespoke tailor is invaluable. You can rely on the guidance and the knowledge of etiquette; relax and enjoy the event.
The wedding suit hire process requires two appointments where the hire garments are selected, measurements are taken and then the garments are re-tailored, altered and adjusted to the individual.
Garment choices will vary depending on whether you’re looking for wedding suit hire at our London or Wilmslow Tailors.

MADE TO MEASURE MENS WEDDING SUITS
Sometimes you need a beautiful suit but time is of the essence. A mixture of handmade and machine techniques makes for a faster tailoring time and an exquisitely crafted wedding suit.
Our made to measure wedding suits are a great way to create an individual suit to match your preferences and fit.
The Made to Measure Process:
This process bridges the gap between handmade bespoke and ready to wear suits as it is crafted to fit using a mixture of hand and machine processes. A consultation is conducted where detailed measurements (approximately 15 measurements are collected) are taken and cloth and details are explored.
The process of a made to measure suit involves less fittings than a bespoke suit and can be created within two months. The result is a personalised and impeccably fitting wedding suit that you will love to wear.
What should the man of the hour wear on his wedding day? Some grooms opt to stand out from the rest of the groomsmen with a different pattern or colour wedding suit, while most will want to choose something that compliments the bride’s wedding dress.
The real answer to this question is that the groom should wear whatever he likes – the important thing is that a groom’s suit makes him look good and feel great.
The dress of the groomsmen is guided by the groom. If the groom is wearing evening tails, morning tails or dinner wear, the groomsmen would be expected to follow that. Matching ties and handkerchiefs are not expected (or preferable) and some elements of personal differences on these items can often look much better – except for an ivory or off-white neck-tie, which should always be reserved for the groom, whether or not he chooses to wear one.
In scenarios where the groom is wearing a three piece suit, the groomsmen are expected to do the same and dress their very best, short of looking like a groom themselves. Accessories such as a well chosen pocket handkerchief and colourful neck tie and tie pin can make an important difference in the final look.
As always, the suit and shirt being expertly tailored to each individual gives the very best impression and honours the bride and groom’s matrimony .
The Father of the Bride
Traditionally the host of the wedding party the father of the bride can wear whatever he chooses! He can wear morning tails along with the groom, or decide on a well tailored three piece if he chooses. Customarily he will fit in with the rest of the groomsmen, however special attention should be paid to his garment.
Being from an older generation, the same styles that may look fine on the younger groomsmen can often appear undignified and make him feel uncomfortable. It becomes all the more important to shape the garment appropriately for his shape and size, and style it for his years. He is the boss on the day his daughter gets married, and that should be reflected in his attire!
