- How would you advise grooms to start when first thinking about wedding day outfit shopping?
There are three key areas a groom has to think about looking for his wedding suit. First the date of the wedding, second the number of people in the wedding party and lastly if there is a colour theme for the wedding.
We have developed new technology to make this process as easy and stress free as possible for the groom. Slaters Wedding Suit Selector allows you to enter the groom and co.’s details then select your colour preference before showing you all styles available in the full parties’ size.

A suit is classic piece which makes any man look dapper and stylish. A suit looks sharp, sophisticated and can complement any colour theme. It may also make the groom feel more comfortable and confident on his wedding day.
- When should a groom start searching in relation to the wedding date?
We recommend that the groom starts looking for his and the parties suits around 3 months before the wedding date and leaves it no later than 4 weeks to ensure you are able to get what you are looking for and plenty time for alterations. Remember that here at Slaters we offer FREE ALTERATIONS on every suit, so you can be sure your wedding party will all have perfectly tailored suits on the day.

- What advice would you give grooms on which style and look to pick?
We recommend that they always ask their partners opinion as they may have an outfit or colour theme in mind. We would however say, the most important advice you could give them is wear an outfit they feel comfortable in, as they will be wearing it all day and in the evening.
- What about matching the colour them of the big day? How can this be done?
If you are looking to co-ordinate the Best man & Groomsmen there are many styles and colours of pocket squares, ties and bow ties to match the bridesmaids dress. The groom can also match the bridesmaids however he may wish to wear an alternative colour so that’s the stands out from the rest of the wedding party.
