Manning & Manning Wedding suits
One of my competitors says
" An inexpensive but impeccably cut suit will look like a million bucks. The same can’t be said for a pricey, ill-fitting one."
I one hundred percent agree with that but an impeccably cut suit that fits well and is properly priced is better still. Making well cut, well made and well fitting suits is what we do, and our prices are very good indeed for the quality of work we offer.
When it comes to weddings, it’s all about the bride. From the rehearsal dinner to the reception to the exotic honeymoon locale, we’ve got little say, and most people will remember the dress but not so many the suit. Ideally the suit serves as a backdrop to her dress. We need you to look so good that everyone simply concentrates completely on how lovely the bride looks. To do that the suit has to be in a great colour that works well against the colour of her dress and fit perfectly.
You should look like you’re getting married, not giving a PowerPoint presentation. You can of course go for a really traditional morning suit outfit, and we make very good morning suits as in the picture of a wedding suit I made a while ago for a client but a good lounge suit also looks very good. Even though the suit can be worn to work afterwards it pays to make this a special suit. Do not wear stripes, at least not pin stripes or similar office type stripes. You will look best in a solid colour or in a fine woven design. It used to be traditional to wear a blue suit as blue is the most formal colour.
Nowadays we make all sorts of colours as well as black suits.
The best idea is to try to make sure the suit will look good on you, not everyone suits black or even a dark colour.
We will spend time looking at cloths that suit your colouring but keep in mind the colour of the bride’s dress. I suggest a single breasted lounge suit in a light weight cloth, you don’t want to look hot and uncomfortable on the day, slim fitted with slanted pockets and longish side slits. If you want to make it look more formal you can have a vest, with the advantage that if it gets a bit warm at the reception you can take off the jacket but still look well dressed. A vest with a really exciting colour back would look very dashing.
After the wedding this suit can go on being used as a suit to wear to work when you want to look at your best but not too corporate. Perfect for receptions, up-market restaurants or any social/business event, and even power point presentations!
As weddings are so expensive we offer a wedding package. We always charge the full price for your suit but give a 20% discount for your best man if he orders at the same time, and a 25% discount if you have your best man and any other men ordering their suits at the same time. They do not all have to be in the same fabric, we want them all to look good and what suits you might not suit them, but they should all look just as good as you and the bride.
The bride has probably taken months getting her dress designed and made. We won’t take quite as long but we still need time. It can be done in about four to five weeks but as this is such an important suit we would prefer six to seven weeks please.
