Generally, grooms are in charge of the wedding suits. Your wedding day suit requires thought and preparation. To help you out, Mark Ferguson from Wil Valor has created a brief checklist along with a timeline that will help keep the groom on track to have his wedding suit in time for the wedding day.
Three Months Before – the initial fabric and style consultation.
3 months prior to your wedding date generally the bride and bridesmaids have been chosen, flowers are locked in and the invitations dress codes are set. This will provide us with all the information we need to help guide you.
One Month Before – Ensure the suit fits perfectly.
We prefer to deliver your wedding suit one month out from the wedding. One less thing to think about and one more box ticked as the weeks prior to a wedding are somewhat crazy. This is also a good time to organise any ties, pocket handkerchief’s, shoes and socks.
A Week Before – It’s time to work on yourself.
This is a good time to get a haircut so you won’t have that “new haircut” look on the day. This is also a good time to look at the suit to see if it needs a final press.
The Day Before – Double Check
Double check to make sure you have your suit, shirt, tie, shoes, socks and cuff links. It is easy to forget cuff links.
The Big Day
It will take you longer to get ready than you think so start at least an hour before you have to leave. Remember to take in the moment and enjoy your day.
