You’re getting married, congratulations! If you’re considering getting a made to measure wedding suit created, then you’ll want to know when to get organised.

Now’s the time to get organised! It’s likely that it’s the first time you’re getting married and hopefully the last, so you want to get it right. We’ll show you how.

1. 8 months prior to your wedding

It’s time to choose your tailor. This should be the first thing on the list. The best thing to do is check out their website and social media pages. We note, Instagram is usually the most helpful as it is imagery led and you can really get a feel for someone’s work.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. Finishing touches

The accessories are then chosen when your outfit has come together, and you’ll have more of an idea what will look good alongside the rest of your wedding party.

6. Grooming

1 week 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 laidback look, then it’s best to have your hair grow into the cut for around a week depending on what style you’re going for.

We hope this has helped you plan your day. We like to make things relaxed and easy for you, so we keep you informed of your order every step of the way and help you create your dream look.
