This is not just any suit you are picking - it's the outfit for your big day. It's going to be in all your wedding photos - let's face it your mum will have them framed - you must spend some time and make sure it's perfect.
Best leave this to the professionals and seek a tailor. Moss Bros has over 130 stores in the UK that offer a swift and attentive service, and we are particularly fond of the Regent Street store, in all its opulent glory. You can choose to buy, hire or even custom-make your perfect suit with its bespoke service. It has a no-fuss 1-2-3 service, where they alter the cut to fit your shape, pick the fabric that feels the best for you, and then add the detail that makes the suit exclusively yours. As well as its own in-house lines, Moss Bros holds other brands including Ted Baker, French Connection and DKNY.
Know the formalities
Occasionwear can be tricky; you are going to be dealing with some of the sartorial unknown here - unless you're a seasoned attendee of the Pride of Britain awards or the Oscars - so make sure you are completely clued up with how to knot your tie, bow tie or cravat. Moss Bros has helpful and easy tutorials and instruction guides on how to smarten yourself up and how to do up that tricky bow tie - you don't want any last minute panic on the big day.
Don't forget the details
Make sure your collar is stiff, your cuffs have cufflinks and your cummerbund is colour coordinated, if you are having them of course. Socks need to be thought of - Spongebob Squarepants socks are not going to cut it, however a polka dot or stripe would be fun. Moss Bros can even cater you with sporrans and kilts if you are planning a ceilidh of a wedding (underwear is of course optional).
For the shotgunners
Sometimes there just isn't time. We know you're busy, you're all-consumed by love, and you have to get it done quick sharp. With the launch of the online hire service from Moss Bros later in 2014, you can even customise your outfit (with help from a Cher from Clueless-
style outfit builder), and pick it up and drop it off when you are done. It's instant and easy to use.
