Getting the wedding attire sorted for the main men in your wedding party can be a challenge, especially if the groomsmen are spread far and wide and clothes shopping isn't really their thing!
Whoever makes the final decision; it's all down to whatever works for you. What's important is to agree on something everyone feels good in and that's comfortable to wear.
Menswear specialists Coes of Ipswich provides a made-to-measure service as well as an extensive choice of hire suits in a wide range of sizes and alterations to ensure the perfect fit.
Here director Peter Hubka shares his top tips:
❤ While traditional morning tails are ever popular, there's been a major swing to lounge suits in recent years, in particular, slim and skinny-fit. However, not everyone suits this style, so careful planning and coordination are needed, particularly if you're dealing with a variety of different shapes and sizes.
❤ Tweed remains extremely popular and as well as suits to hire and buy, we also offer tweed waistcoats to coordinate with a wide range of fabrics and colours; ideal for creating individual looks.
❤ Lightweight fabrics are great for summer weddings with wool and mohair blends offering both comfort and style.
❤ Blue and grey are the number one colours, with silver grey, charcoal, navy and royal blue also extremely popular.
❤ Accessories come in a rainbow of different shades with Liberty designs and other patterns to choose from. The aim is to ensure the whole party is coordinated to fit in with the wedding theme.
❤ The key word when it comes to colour schemes this year is 'diversity'. We're being asked for all sorts of options but for those that prefer something neutral, cream and silver remains a good choice.
❤ To avoid any last-minute panic, we recommend hirewear bookings are made 12 to 16 weeks ahead of the big day. Pageboys outfits can be left until around six weeks before, as they're still growing.
❤ The groom should be the centre of attention in the men's party and there are a number of different style options so that they can blend with the rest of the party yet still stand out.
❤ When planning the groom and groomsmen's outfits, we suggest just the groom, or groom and bride, coming into the shop initially to try on some options. Once style and theme has been established, we then advise bringing in the rest of the party for full fittings.
❤ For same sex weddings, couples can go for matching outfits or add an element of individuality to their attire.
