- Synchronise with Bae
It’s always cute to want to surprise your partner with how you look for the function, but sometimes the aftermath isn’t always cute. Especially if your partner feels that the choices you’ve made to your wedding suit are not good enough and worse if they clash with their own. To avoid this unfortunate set of circumstances, always consult Bae first. Yes it is true that it is your day as well, and that you’d naturally want to look fabulous as well, it is always best if the choices that you and your partner make complement each other.
- Do that research
Before you go to the tailor or suit shop, do them and yourself a favour by doing some research beforehand. With the Internet, it is easy to look into what is available in the market, and what you think will suit and complement your taste. There are tonnes of magazines as well so you will not find yourself at a lack of material, as there is no dearth of it at all. Be on the lookout for fabrics, cuts and styles that catch your eye and go with these pictures to your appointment. This will help the consultants at the shop and the tailors to come up with the best possible wedding suits for you.
- Have a budget
Always, always work within a set budget. While you don’t have to sell your kidney to afford a suit, you can also avoid being too cheap.
- Go Pro or don’t bother
If you are not going to use a professional tailor or designer, I don’t know why you read this article. It is meaningless, only a professional tailor will get you the best from fabric to quality tailoring.
- If it won’t look good on you it’s not making sense
While you might have always admired double-breasted suits, be prepared for a bit of reality if you find that they do not suit you. Every person is different, and their bodies are built differently. Fortunately, it is ludicrously hard to look bad in any kind of suit, seeing as there are a multitude of styles and cuts to suit any kind of figure. These coupled with the right choice in accessories, such as ties and cufflinks, can make anyone look like they’ve stepped of a fashion ramp. And never underestimate the power of a well-tailored suit. Something that hangs over parts of your figure, or bulges awkwardly in places because of it being just a little too tight in one itsy-bitsy bit of stitch can completely ruin the effect of a good suit or tux.
