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 but nowadays, we make all sorts of colours. 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 straight 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.
