Wedding Suit Hire With Formally Yours ? It’s Not Just For Grooms On A Budget !

 

With the increasing costs of organising a wedding, it’s not only grooms on a budget who can see the advantage of hiring suits rather than buying them. Wedding suit hire is uniquely convenient, making it an excellent choice for any type of wedding, whether grander and very formal, or simpler and more casual. Here are 3 good reasons to hire your wedding suits from Formally Yours:

 

1.     It’s Wonderfully Cost-Effective

 

There’s a wide range of sizes in our wedding suit collection, far more than you’ll find in a retail shop. So your whole party can be catered for in our £57 outfits, much less than the purchase price of these if you were lucky enough to find them to buy. The Formally Yours collection includes wedding suits in the 3 main styles of tailcoats, Prince Edward jackets and lounge jackets.

 

2.     It’s Convenient & Quick

 

You do not have to spend hours over different days gathering together your best man and ushers etc, visiting shops a number of times, including trips to collect and return outfits. Our website allows you to order everything at the click of a mouse, and with our delivery partner DPD, no matter where you are in the country, your hired suits will be delivered and collected to your door.

 

 

3.      It’s Environmentally Friendly

 

If, like so many men today, you don’t wear a suit regularly, the resources used to make your party’s wedding suits will not go to waste sitting in the wardrobe for years to come. So hiring your wedding suit will make you an environmental all-star!

12 things you shouldn’t forget on your wedding day

12 things you shouldn’t forget on your wedding day

With all of the planning that goes into your big day, it’s hard to imagine there being a single detail that will have escaped your finely tuned plan. It’s easy to lose track of a few things along the way, though, especially as the big day approaches and the excitement kicks in.

Eat breakfast

As the morning of your wedding arrives it’s easy to find yourself rushing around and getting wrapped up in the excitement of it all. Breakfast will be the last thing on your mind, but make sure you give yourself enough time to eat something, even if it’s small and simple.

Emergency kit

Every bride and groom should bring a small kit including a lint brush, needle, thread, safety pins and spare buttons to keep somewhere nearby. Hopefully, you won’t need it, but if you do, you’ll be glad you thought ahead and have these things to hand.

Accessories

Make sure to check and double­check that you have all of the accessories for your outfit, as well as those for your bridesmaids and groomsmen. Buttonholes, cufflinks, the groom’s pocket watch, jewellery and flowers are all important parts of the overall look. Don’t forget something old, new, borrowed and blue for the bride too!

Garment bags

Bring garment bags to keep your wedding dress and suit in once the day is over. This will help to keep them in the best condition possible and protect them when transporting them home too.

Wedding rings

One of the most important things of all, but it’s surprising how often they are accidently left behind by a nervous best man! It never hurts to double check, and it’ll give you peace of mind too.

Printed copies of the wedding timeline

Make sure your wedding party all have their own copies of the wedding timeline, to help your day go as smoothly as possible.

Speeches

Making a speech in front of a room full of people is always a nerve­wracking situation, so even if you think you know it off by heart, bring a written version or cue cards to act as backup. Ask everyone else who will be giving a speech to do the same too.

Overnight bag and fresh clothes

With the focus on the big day, it’s easy to forget that you’ll need to plan for the morning after too! Make sure to pack an overnight bag with everything you’ll need, plus a change of clothes for the next day.

A plan for your photographer

Weddings can be a great opportunity to get photos of the whole family together, and having beautiful photos of those special people in your life to look back on is priceless. Giving your photographer a run through in advance of key people and photos you’d like means you can relax and leave them to it. Ask one of your bridesmaids or groomsmen to be responsible for rounding everyone up for the group photos, to ensure no one is missed out.

Honeymoon luggage and valid passports

If you’re jetting straight off on your honeymoon the next day, make sure you have everything packed a few days beforehand to avoid packing in a last minute rush. Check that your passports will still be valid for the whole of your trip and place them near your suitcases, so you’re ready to go.

Assign someone to gather up gifts

Ask a bridesmaid, groomsman or one of your parents to be in charge of collecting your gifts and cards at the end of the night. They can then take them home for you, so they’ll be waiting for you when you return.

Take time for yourselves and enjoy it

Lastly, don’t forget to enjoy the day! Make time for yourselves to take a breather away from your other guests, and stop to enjoy the moment.

Choosing the right suit style for your Wedding

Choosing the right suit style for your Wedding

When it comes to weddings the first thing on everyone's mind is the bride's dress, but that doesn’t mean the groom’s suit is any less important. 

Many people assume the groom’s choice is simple and straightforward, but there’s a lot more to take into consideration than just finding a nice suit that fits in with the wedding theme. Whilst your bride may have spent months choosing her dream dress, rarely is the same care and time taken to find the perfect suit. Different styles can add a whole different character and have a huge impact on the look you are trying to achieve, so it’s worth spending the time to get this right. 

Although often this decision will mostly come down to your own personal choice, it can help to understand the differences between each of the styles to help you make your decision.

The Lounge Suit

A modern classic, the lounge suit is the perfect option for a groom wanting a fuss-free look. This style is a great all-rounder that works well for all types of daytime wedding. It gives a formal look whilst still being relaxed and it is quickly becoming favoured amongst modern grooms because of this. 

Similar in style to a fine business suit, the jacket is short and single breasted with a classic notched lapel and flap pockets at the hips. The fit is softly tailored, combining an effortlessly smart appearance with a more casual, comfortable fit.

The Prince Edward

Still one of the most popular choices thanks to its understated and timeless look, the Prince Edward falls perfectly between the more relaxed lounge suit and more formal tails. It’s the ideal middle ground for most weddings, and this is why it remains our most popular style. 

Sharp and minimal with contemporary styling, the three quarter length jacket has a slight drape giving a truly elegant fit. Fastening with 3 buttons, it has short notched lapels and flap pockets at the hips keeping the look classic and ageless.

The Tail Suit

Also called a morning suit, this is the most formal option for a daytime wedding and has been a highly popular choice for many decades with those wanting a very polished look. This style is most suited to grooms who are after a very traditional look. 

Gently cut away at the front it extends to a full, knee length back creating an elegant tail-like effect. A sharp, close fit and traditional peaked lapels make this suit feel extra special.
