Between three and five months is the time to get measured. Round up your best man and groomsmen, try everything on and arrange for any alternations that need to be made. Fittings will take between 45 minutes to one hour so make sure to book an appointment and give yourself plenty of time.
Your summer wedding suit should be ready for collection two to seven days before the wedding. Make sure everything has a final try on and to organise any last minute adjustments to be made. Remember to try on your suit with the shoes you’ll be wearing on the day as well as any accessories.
And that’s it – now all that’s left to do is shower, shave, get dressed and say I Do!
