The Wedding Suit Doctor: Tips on how to buy the right wedding suit on a budget

Whether you are fashion-forward, a perfect gentleman that understands grooming and know the definite specifications you crave for your suit down to the last button and you have a merchant in the mind that you contemplate buying your wedding suit, or you are once like me; I dislike wearing a suit until I found my men’s fashion brand.

Perhaps I knew little about suit then.

Whatever category you fall within, a regular guy or fashion-forward, take time and make the right decision where to buy the perfect fitting suit that will grant you a lasting memory.

Because the groom suit can mar and spoil the wedding experience. I had met many unhappy customers because they make poor choices, especially those who want to cut the cost that ends up paying huge with regrets.

While what this article seeks to prevent is to give you sound tips on what to consider and how to go about choosing the right wedding suit.

The choices can seem overwhelming for sure. No matter your budget, your personal style, or your timeline, if you read all our “wedding suit doctor series” buying the wedding of your dreams — the one you’ll love today, on the big day, and in 30 years from now when you look back at your wedding photos, won’t be an arduous task for you.

To get this done, here are my prescriptions for you (smiles);

1. Select the right colour

What you need is first to decide on the colour of the day, because this is the compass. The colour you and your spouse select for the day influences the focus of your shopping.

Interesting, a few of us so good with colour, during the four years of my practice as wedding suit doctor I had seen a very awkward colour scheme; there’s this guy, that like light green and orange, in fact, his wife said; everything about the guy is defined in orange and light green colours.

These colours are fine, but the headache they are not too cool to be the predominant wedding colour.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking your most cherished colour will be your predominant colour for your wedding day if you choose the wrong colour, is challenging finding the suit with that colour in the market.

2. Do Research to Find What You Like

Rip pages out of magazines, click through suit boutiques online, explore on Pinterest, Instagram and check out what celebrity brides are wearing to compile a visual file of your favourite suit styles and how they are styling their look. Then look for a connecting theme with your colour of the day and styling and the basic accessories that will give you a great look.

3. Select the style you and the complementing accessories

The first rule in style is to communicate your personality if you are a classic person you need to communicate it. Most times is the accessories and the fitting that get this done. If you want to look rich and reserved, types of fabrics you will use in making the suit, the colour and the style of the suit matter here most. Because, as a reserved person, you might not need too many accessories like bracelets and brooches.

4. Start the shopping process on time

At least do all your shopping for two months to the wedding, don’t wait till three weeks to the wedding before you will start shopping for your suit. One way to save cost is to shop on time because you won’t be under any pressure. Most people I had encountered what caused them to make a mistake was they were under pressure. When you are under pressure because of the few days to the wedding you won’t have time to research vendors and go for necessary fitting and sizing, especially if you want a bespoke for your day. The well-fitting suit takes two to three weeks to produce, and once it arrives, you still have to factor in more time for alterations and accessorizing.

5. Figure out Your Budget

Yes, it’s uncomfortable to talk numbers, but it will save you from heartache later on. Before your first appointment, figure out who is paying for the suit (your friends, or you?). If someone else is paying, get the hard numbers on your limit, so you can stay within that budget or pay the difference yourself to get the suit you want. When I ask who is paying for the suit many of my patients (customers) find it strange, while we have a hack on how to get your friends to pay for your suit without them knowing that they did. Especially if you have a huge network. The last pill will treat this.

6. Find a Great sartorial fashion brand or a boutique that sale nice suit

Do your homework before you make appointments since you don’t want to waste time at a shop that doesn’t carry suit you like or has terrible customer service. Get referrals from married friends and check online reviews to find shops or tailors with solid reputations. While our clinic; Dresnice is the perfect place. But even so, do your homework.

7. Call Ahead

Don’t waste your time shopping at a store that doesn’t have the style, designer, or price range you had in mind. Call the boutique or sartorial shop ahead of time to get the lowdown on their inventory before you visit. Smiles! To get in touch with the wedding suit doctor, just WhatsApp us: +2348171836780
