Budgeting for your big day can be a tricky balance to get right. You want to put on the day of your dreams but you also don’t want to break the bank, so it can be difficult to know where to really invest and where to pull back.
When it comes to groomswear, we’re the experts here at Slater Menswear and today we’re going to be sharing with you our top tips for spending your money well when it comes to buying your attire for the special day.
Where to Spend
When it comes to deciding how you’re going to split your budget for groomswear up, a good portion of that should always be dedicated to the suit.
No matter how bold your shirt or statement your tie, the suit is the main event and therefore deserves the biggest investment.
Just because you choose to ‘spend’ opposed to ‘save’ on your suit, that doesn’t mean you need to spend hundreds of pounds on it, you should just allocate a fair amount of your set budget to the suit to make sure you get the best one in your price range.
Whether you’ve got £100 to spend or £300 to spend, we’ve got men’s wedding suits to fit within every budget, all of which are stylish, good quality and a perfect fit for men of all sizes.
Although you want your wedding shoes to look good, they need to be comfortable too which is why we’d recommend allocating a decent portion of your budget to buying the right pair.
Similarly to your suit, your shoes are going to get plenty of attention as they’re a key feature of your overall outfit, as well as looking good, you need to be able to wear them all day long.
Ensuring you get a good pair of wedding shoes is key to making sure you enjoy your big day fully because there’s nothing worse than shoes that don’t fit properly. Be sure to select shoes that you’ll be happy sporting down the aisle and then on to the dance floor!
We’ve got wedding shoes to meet all price points, so just because we recommend dedicating enough of your groomswear budget to good shoes, that doesn’t mean you have to be spending hundreds.
Where to Save
Although it’s important to pick a nice, comfortable and quality wedding shirt, this particular element of your outfit is hidden behind your suit and tie and therefore just needs to coordinate with the overall outfit, making it a perfect place to save some money.
